Square Enix has announced that the PS3 exclusive, Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice will be released in PAL territories in 2009.
From the release:
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!
Full thing after the drop.

Take a look.

The interview begins with this gem of a quote from lead designer Masahiro Yamamoto, so you know all’s well: “I planned to make the story of Disgaea 3 as stupid as Disgaea 1 was, since Disgaea 2 was comparatively serious.”
The game’s coming out next year in the US, but still hasn’t been confirmed for Europe.
See for yourself.

According to this Siliconera piece, Nippon Ichi’s releasing a Japanese update for Disgaea 3 which includes ten super-powerful playable characters. You get them to join your group by having Mao at a certain level when you beat the game. You can see the available characters – or nine of them, at least – here. The tactical RPG is promised for western release for PS3 later this year.

Here The DS version of Nippon Ichi’s SRPG’s looking all good and now confirmed for a June 26 release in Japan. No word yet on whether or not we’re going to see it in Europe, but computer says “yes”, so hopefully we’ll have a date soon.

Following last night’s announcement that Nippon Ichi’s mega-hardcore RPG Disgaea 3 will release in the US for PS3, Koei UK – publisher of all Nippon Ichi titles in Europe – has confirmed there are no plans to bring the title out here as yet.
“There’s currently nothing,” said a spokesperson. “I don’t even know if we’ll publish it or not. It’s just been announced for the US at the moment. No, absolutely no idea at the moment, no.”
In case you didn’t get that, it means “no”.
Don’t be too amazed if this does turn up eventually, however. Koei has published plenty of Nippon Ichi’s RPGs in Europe previously, including Phantom Brave, Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness for PSP and Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana.
