NIS bringing back Laharl for series' 10th anniversary.

The identity of Nippon Ichi Software’s Project: D was revealed to be Disgaea D2 during a Dengeki 20th anniversary stage event in Chiba this weekend. It will launch at 7,140 yen for PlayStation 3 on March 20, 2013 in Japan.

Shogo Kozakai will serve as the game’s producer. Its story is centered around characters Laharl, Etna, and Flonne. Because it’s the series’ 10th anniversary, they wanted to bring back Laharl, explained Kozakai, as he is its origin. Disgaea D2 is a sequel to Laharl’s story. The “D” in the the title stands for “Dimension.” But it can also mean “Destiny” or “Dramatic,” according to the producer. Minori Chihara will sing the game’s opening music.

The official packaging, limited edition, and pre-order bonuses were also announced. The limited edition will include figures of Etna and Flonne, a hard cover art book, and the original soundtrack. It will cost 11,340 yen. Pre-order Disgaea D2 and you’ll receive a redeem code for “Legacy Ver.” costumes of Laharl, Etna, and Flonne.

Thanks, 4Gamer.net, Famitsu.

    Laharl, Etna and Flonne were easily the best protagonists of the Disgaea series.
