New Disgaea D2 Screenshots and Artwork Showcase New Characters, Character Creation and Battle

Today Nippon Ichi Software released a whole bunch of new screenshots and artwork of Disgaea D2, that is going to hit the Japanese shelves for PS3 on March the 20th.

The new assets intoduce two new characters – Xenoliths and Barbara – and give us quite the glimpse on some of the battles we’ll face in the game, including the use of different weapons (Swords, Spears, Axes, Guns, Fists, Staffs and Bows) and the ability to create new companion characters from scratch, selecting their gender, looks (and colors), class, characteristics and even the personality.

If you’re a fan of the series, there’s a whole lot to enjoy in the gallery below. Personally this new character creation is what intrigues me the most, and it seems to be in line with what Nippon Ichi has been pushing with Legasista. That’s definitely a new approach to JRPG characters, and one I definitely appreciate.
