While I am sure many are waiting to see a re-release of the first Disgaea game, Nippon Ichi Software America have todaya announced that their strategy RPG Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories will be available on the Playstation Network as a Playstation 2 Classics title later this month – or more specifically the 22nd January 2013. This will only be playable on the Playstation 3 – however a port was made for the Playstation Portable a couple of years ago.
Originally released in 2006, lovers of challenging yet rewarding strategy RPG’s will find Disgaea 2: Cursed memories addicting with a crazy and over-the-top storyline and set of characters, coupled with classic Disgaea-style music and complex gameplay… at least that is what I found.
Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories will be available at a price of $9.99
