Nippon Ichi has today revealed that their upcoming strategy JRPG Disgaea D2 will do away with the series’ signature “Item Worlds” in favor of the Item Sea. In Disgaea D2, your party can take to the pirate laden open sea in search of islands that harbor challenging boss enemies. These boss enemies will be guarding very valuable and or useful treasure, so they are worth seeking out and felling.
Furthermore, downloadable content will be released for Disgaea D2. A player’s navigator book (I’m assuming this is like a strategy guide) will be released for the game, and it will contain download codes for four weapons: Love Get Sword, Love Shotgun, Hate Charge Bow, and Hate Burn Spear. Equipping characters with these items will either positively or negatively affect their relationships with other characters.
Currently Disgaea D2 is only confirmed for a Japanese release. It will be a PS3 exclusive and will be released on March 20th.
