Countdowns have actually been pretty kind to me lately. I'm hoping for the best (though I have no idea what that is).

It's going to be a mobile game because it's impossible to expect something big. Imagine if one day a teaser site reveals a game like STAR OCEAN 5.

No way. No way!

LOLOLOLOL pls be excited

After D5's sales, I wouldn't be surprised if they did take notes from SE =P

But yeah, I'm interested. New Prinny game would be just about fantastic too.

Its pretty quick for a Vita port of D2 , those take 3 years with a disturbing reliability usually, and unless they are announcing ~1 year in advance , this is a bit early for that.

A bunch of NIS employees left and went to Idea Factory due to some pretty scummy stuff regarding pay (sacking and rehiring at more junior positions etc).

Disgaea 5 has also sold pretty badly in Japan (apparently the digital sales haven't been terrible but not what was expected, while the physical sales have been awful).

well the idea that nis was in deep financial woes came from niikawa's statements last year about how he'd need to leave the industry or something if disgaea 5 did poorly. but he was speaking in a self-deprecating way and later made a comment that the company was not on the brink of financial collapse and that disgaea 5 doing poorly would not sink it. his clarification never overcame the reach of the original comment being taken out of context, so now people think it's one game away from being thq'd.

Whoo. That was really unexpected. Wasn't expecting that to get a remake for one and for two it came out 3 months after D2 , so definitely wasn't expecting it to get ported first.

Yeah, good point, should have included that.

Anihawk, rumours of NIS' demise have been around a lot longer than that.

Did not play the first game. But I'm okay with this. It seems fun enough.

Is it a remaster or a new game though? The revival part confuses me =X
