Disgaea 5

In the lead up to Disgaea 5‘s release next year, NIS has decided to open a site where players can submit ideas for names of NPC characters that will inhabit the main headquarters in the final game.

Specifically, NIS is keen on names for NPCs working in the equipment and item shops, as well as the hospital, and, more generally, Dimensional Guide-class Prinnies. In terms of the sorts of names the developer is looking for, NIS is on the hunt for ones that will either go well with the NPCs’ job, those with a childish/immature vibe, or cute, moe ones. No prize is attached to winning names beyond having them appear in the game, as no personally identifiable information is even requested on the first beyond senders’ first and last names. Those keen on submitting names have between October 20 and October 30 at 11:59 PM JST to send them in.

Disgaea 5 is set to come out March 26, 2015 for the PlayStation 4.
