NIS America Announces Three Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness, The Guided Fate Paradox, and Time and Eternity are all headed our way. 02.22.13 - 2:23 AM
Tonight at an event held in San Francisco, NIS America announced three titles for localization, and while none will come as a surprise, all are headed to North America and Europe sometime this year.
Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness is a direct followup to the first Disgaea with Laharl, Flonne and Etna all making a return for Nippon Ichi's 20th birthday and the series' 10th anniversary. Laharl meets a girl claiming to be his sister while on a journey to earn recognition of his new Overlord status. Classic Disgaea gameplay, grinding and all, can be expected here with lots of refinements and improvements, such as customization, a master-pupil system, geo panels which act as status changing blocks, an item world and more. Disgaea D2 for PS3 heads to North America and Europe this fall.
The Guided Fate Paradox (The God and Fate Revolution Paradox in Japan) is considered a spiritual successor to Z.H.P.: Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman. The PS3 roguelike follows Renya, who has control of others' fates and so has achieved a godlike status. Of course, there are challenges in protecting or changing their fates... The Guided Fate Paradox for PS3, developed by the Disgaea team and featuring artwork by Noizi ito, is also slated for a fall release.
Time and Eternity (also known as Tokitowa) is an Imageepoch PS3 title you'd have seen us talk a lot about around here, with Toki, about to get married at the beginning of the game, losing her would-be husband to an assassination. The ordeal wales up Toki's alter ego, Towa, and players will swap through both - as they have different fighting styles - as they set out to go back in time to save Toki's groom. Time and Eternity is to go on sale in North America and Europe this summer.
