Never fear, friends – Disgaea 5 hasn’t gone anywhere, Nippon Ichi just has two new Disgaea games in the works.

Speaking to Dengeki, as reported by Gematsu, Disgaea Dimension 2 producer Shogo Kozakai confirmed that the new game is distinct from Disgaea 5, and that the new numbered sequel is in pre-production.

Dimension 2 is actually a follow on from the good ending of the first Disgaea, and may be spun off into its own series. It sees the return of protagonist Laharl along with Etna and Flonne, although plenty of other familiar and new faces will also feature.

Although Nippon Ichi considered remaking the first Disgaea, it wanted to tell a new story. The gameplay system will be similar to that of Disgaea: Hour of Darkness and Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten, but with a blanace more akin to the original Disgaea.

Kozakai said new elements are yet to be revealed, but apparently hinted that monster mounts might be one of them.

Dimension 2 was announced last week as the true name of Project D, one of the developer’s 20th anniversary celebratory titles. It’s due in March.
