After a seriously disastrous year, Nippon Ichi Software falls back on a proven breadwinner to help heal its wounds, readying Disgaea 4 for release on the Japanese PlayStation 3 in February.

You can expect more pointy-haired protagonists with dubious grasps on the concepts of good and evil when Disgaea 4 hits Japan on February 24 of next year. Judging by the trailer we'll see more character stacking, more impressive special attacks, and more Prinnies than you can shake a well-balanced group of adventurers at.

Between this and the girl spanking game, Nippon Ichi should be back in the black in no time.
