Nippon Ichi readying new PS Vita title, says company president.

Similar to past numbered games in the Disgaea series, the fifth title will have a new setting and characters, Nippon Ichi Software president Sohei Shinkawa has told the latest issue of Dengeki.

Touching upon PSP development, he said Nippon Ichi is reserving its PSP production primarily for otome titles. Other titles, he said, will migrate to PlayStation 3 and PS Vita. And speaking of PS Vita, the studio is preparing a new title for the platform.

There have been many requests for an authentic adventure game such as PS2′s Hayarigami. That’s being considered, Shinkawa said. But this is unrelated to their new PS Vita title.

Thanks, Game Nyarth.

    We’ve had human world, space, moon, ugh what’s missing? Maybe Asagi as a main character? hahahahaha

    Always good to do something new for a franchise.

    Keep it on the ps3 and we’ll buy it not gonna throw away 300 bucks for a dying handheld with only a rumor price cut still about a year away.
    as always looking forward to the new disgaea the squeal and the god and fate revolution paradox.

    This should be release on both PS Vita and Ps3. I prefer my disgaea game portable.

    Fuck yes, Tokuhou (Tokushuu Houdoubu) is an awesome game with gorgeous visuals, can’t wait for more Vita love by N1.

    Er… Wait. Is this actually for Disgaea 5 or are you just calling “Disgaea D2″ Disgaea 5 now? Lol.

    • Speedo Redempteur

       disgaea 5 & disgaea D2 are 2 differents games

      D2 can’t have new characters since we know that many old characters are returning for big roles.

      So obvious this is about the Next numbered Disagaea game

        Oh, alright. Well, I ran a search on “Disgaea 5″ here, but the only related stuff that popped up was stuff for D2, so I was a bit confused, lol.

    • usagi_san

      Nope. They mentioned they were going to make a Disgaea 5 too. 

    • YangTerlupakan

      D2 is sequel from first disgaea game, just like FF X-2 or ToX 2

  • Willgaea

    I’m more hyped for Disgaea D2.

  • Lele Mett

    I’m ready… I just hope it changes like maybe it will take place in the world Flonne and Artina are from? The next main charcater can be an Angel? I havn’t seen an angel male in Disgaea..ever…Well see what happens

    • Willgaea

      Vulcanus is a male angel and so is Master lamington. They already went to celestia in the first game. I think they should focus more on family ties than their home worlds. Ex whos Etnas dad or does laharl have a sister. Or maybe going to earth and seeing if laharls mom was resurrected.

    Disgaea 5 and Disgaea D2… my heart is having a pizza hype party.

    NIS to the rescue!!!!
