Why has no one captured the brand new 4+ min HD trailer of Disgaea 3 off PSN yet? I just watched it and am extremely impressed.

I wasn't really sold on the screenshots entirely and I was hoping the game would look better in motion and damn, it really does. Looks like Disgaea 2 with a fairly big graphical improvement. Widescreen is really nice, the HD cut-ins for attacks look great, and the use of 3d angles and backgrounds for all the attacks makes the animation look pretty good! Unlike the screenshots, the characters fit in to the backgrounds just as well as they did on PS2 and the amount of sprites the game is throwing around looks insane at times.

I'm a bit biased because I love everything N1 makes anymore, but that was the best trailer I've seen in a long time.

Someone rip it please!

Yeah, it's been on the JPN PSN store for like 3 days. I just noticed it now since no one had mentioned it yet.

Yeah, it's been up since Thursday or so.

Looks interesting, but I haven't played any of the series yet. It kinda bugs me how the sprites are low-res though.

It's a good series to give a shot. Some don't like it, but a lot of people really enjoy them for both the gameplay and the characters/stories. N1 writes pretty good humor and their battle systems have sooo much depth to mess around with :) They're also really easy to get into. Just start out playing it like a normal rpg and focusing on the plot, and then as you go start trying out the side-systems and go more in-depth in your character making.

What demo? All we have is the trailer...

EDIT: now that I've seen the trailer. It's kind of weird seeing portraits and backgrounds that are really sharp but sprites that are pixelated. I'd rather them pay more attn to sprite detail...

The video was pretty good. Wakamoto narrating is always good, but it's nice to see that there are parts (hopefully many parts) of the game where they zoom out to show the larger maps. It's great because at zoomed out levels, the sprites look really good and they can fit many more of them on the screen! :lol

Really disappointed with 2. I think they just make a new series. That's what they do anyways. Tweak the tried and true formula, stick another anti-hero/ghost/littlegirl in there and off we go.

Yeah, it'd be nice if it did have hi-res sprites... the moon crashing into the stage really could look better.... but oh well, you get what you're given. Sony needs to fund a Disgaea game directly, and get some top artists to do cel-shaded 3D models in harada's style. Oh yeah.

Okay, watched all of the trailer and I am now extremely hyped. It looks like the other Disgaea games but holy crap, it looks crazier. Those team special attacks are awesome. This is going to be one huge game that will suck in hundreds of hours.

But why must it come out on the same day as DMC4? :(

Gameplay looks great.. but there shouldn't be any praise for the graphics. Low res sprites on top of bad textures, applied to extremely low geometry. For 2D, go play Odin Sphere, realize that it's a PS2 game, then come back here.

I loved Disgaea1 and I understand that this kind of games aren't about graphics but those sprites ruin it. INippon Ichi really went low budget with this game :/

Wakamoto is AMAZING. The new mechanics look like a lot of fun.

Also, the new dark assembly-type system looks like more user input into it instead of a random number generator.

If you have a PSP, grab the remake. Easily the best D1 version. D2 added more gameplay, but fell short on its story compared to D1. However, it still was a good game.
