Remember how Disgaea 4 was announced mere weeks ago? Of course, there were not-at-all-subtle hints that announcement was coming, but it was nice to finally get the official word. One thing sadly lacking from announcement day were screen shots, but we've made up for it tonight, with a new gallery for the game packing over 50 images highlighting the game's hi-res sprites.

I'm a big fan of pixel art and retro goodness, but I've gotta say, I can't see using anything but the higher resolution option: It's still pixel-based art, but it's pixel-based art at its finest.

Disgaea 4 releases in Japan on February 24, 2011, with NIS America bringing the title to North America next summer.
