Square Brings Disgaea 3 To Europe In February

For the Disgaea fans to cheap to import or too unversed on the English language to read this article, Square Enix is delivering Disgaea 3 to European PlayStation 3 owners next month.

Squeenix plans on liberally distributing the latest Nppon Ichi prinnyfest, Disgaea 3, throughout PAL territories come February 20th. The latest game in the series of course makes the jump to the PlayStation 3, without any of that pesky updating the game for the current generation of consoles stuff. That just complicates things.

John Yamamoto, president and chief executive officer of Square Enix Ltd. comments, “With Disgaea 3, Nippon Ichi have created a wonderful world full of bizarre characters and deep, addictive gameplay. I hope everyone enjoys playing this unique and rewarding title.”

Well of course you do, Mr. Yamamoto! If everyone enjoyed playing Diagaea 3, it would be a financial windfall!

Of course it will probably only attract the few die hard fans that haven't already imported it, but we can dream.

DISGAEA 3: Absence of Justice AVAILABLE ACROSS EUROPE IN FEBRUARY

London (7th January 2009) – Square Enix Ltd., the publisher of Square Enix® interactive entertainment products in Europe and other PAL territories, today announces that Nippon Ichi Software’s Disgaea®3: Absence of Justice will be released by Square Enix across PAL territories on 20th February 2009 exclusively on the PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3™) computer entertainment system.

Welcome to the twisted world of the Nether Institute, Evil Academy where good is bad and bad is good. In this school a good student is somebody that excels in delinquent activities such as skipping classes or not doing their homework, whereas a bad student arrives to school early and does their homework on time.

This is the setting for Disgaea 3, a rich and deep Strategic RPG that’s not afraid to display a very bizarre sense of humour. It’s a winning combination that will leave you laughing one minute and fighting cunning enemies the next. Where special attacks can deliver up to 100 million points worth of damage and the power of the PS3 is used to deliver 2D sprites, albeit lots of them!

John Yamamoto, president and chief executive officer of Square Enix Ltd. comments, “With Disgaea 3, Nippon Ichi have created a wonderful world full of bizarre characters and deep, addictive gameplay. I hope everyone enjoys playing this unique and rewarding title.”

About DISGAEA 3: Absence of Justice

Story

Mao was reading a comic book. His room was filled with jars of specimens from past experiments. The pages told of a superhero that defeated an atrocious Overlord. Right then, Mao made a huge decision. “As of now… I shall become a hero!”

The decision he made was a big deal, for he is the spawn of the Dean of the Nether Institute Evil Academy. Mao believes that to defeat the Overlord, he must become a hero.

Raspberyl, the delinquent of the school, learns about Mao’s plans and begins to worry. If Mao were to achieve the title of Hero, it would endanger her position as the school’s “Number One Delinquent”. She tries to talk Mao out of his plan.

Witnessing their conversation, Almaz, a hero, misunderstands the situation and tries to save the day. Mao accepts Almaz’s challenge and steals Almaz’s hero title after defeating him.

With the title of Hero, Mao believes he is one step closer to defeating his father and achieving his goal of becoming Overlord.

Will Mao be able to become a hero and defeat the Overlord?
Or will Raspberyl convince him not to?
What is going to happen to Almaz?
