If you like Nippon Ichi, Japanese games and/or games that start with the letter “D” then you’re in luck – Western markets are getting three new titles! Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness (paradoxical names are awesome), DanganRonpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and Demon Gaze are all coming to Europe and North America by early 2014. Full details on each game as well as assets and trailer can be found right down below.
Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness
It’s been a long time since the original Disgaea: Dimensions title released back on the PS2 and this game has been out in Japan for quite some time and seems to be fairly popular, as are the rest of the games in the franchise. Now, the West is finally getting their hands on it later this year! Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness releases exclusively for the PlayStation 3 in September 27 for Europe and October 8 in North America. Check out the trailer (in Japanese) above and screenshots below.
DanganRonpa: Trigger Happy Havoc
Unfortunately there is no official trailer for the game yet, but you can see some screenshots down below. The game is set to release exclusively on the PlayStation Vita early 2014 in both Europe and North America. This series previously appeared on PSP and is unique in that it is more of a murder-mystery interactive novel than a traditional game and it definitely looks interesting on the PS Vita. You can see two teaser screenshots down below, but keep an eye out for more details in the coming months.
Demon Gaze is the last game in this announcement, another one coming exclusively to the PlayStation Vita for North America and Europe in early 2014. The game looks to resemble the Etrian Odyssey series and is a more traditional RPG. You play as Oz, a young guy with no knowledge of his past in a strange world with new-found abilities as a “Demon Gazer”. The trailer is chock full of some beautiful images, as are the screenshots down below.
