It’s a great day, as two games that have been highly anticipated finally get their time in the spotlight.
Souhei Niikawa, the president of Nippon Ichi Software, gave a confirmation at the Anime Expo in Los Angeles that the company is currently in development of the next Disgaea title…and that this is bloody well all we get to hear about the matter for now!
Right now, it appears that the game must be in an early development phase, as no screenshots, videos, or other promotional details were given about the latest entry in the wacky turn-based strategy RPG, but gamers can most likely expect more of the same storytelling elements used in the previous titles. The series is known for its quirky approach, over-the-top animation style, and most importantly, the insane amount of effort it takes to accomplish everything in a game where the max level of a character is 9999, which must be achieved multiple times by each character to make them powerful enough to compete with the hardest enemies. As a pretty big fan of the series thus far, I can only hope that more details will emerge soon.
That wasn’t the only big name title to get an announcement though: Sega confirmed that development was in progress on Rome II: Total War, a followup to the first wildly successful title. After Shogun II became a total hit last year, The Creative Assembly turned their gaze on reviving the Rome setting, following up on the now eight year old title. Many Total War fans have considered Rome and Shogun as the best games of the series, so this does mean that there is a lot to live up to (the original Rome still has a 92% metacritic rating), but the hype that is building already bodes well for Sega.
Tentatively, the game is looking at a Christmas 2013 release, though time will have to tell on that particular note.
