Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention – PS Vita’s First RPG Hits in April

Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention for PS Vita

Hello everyone! Today, I would like to share our brand new trailer for Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention for the PlayStation Vita system. Disgaea 3 for the PS Vita will be released in April. We are really excited about Disgaea 3 coming out on the PS Vita over here. Yes, it is a port of the PlayStation 3 version, but it will be equipped with new character stories, new systems, new attack levels, new bosses, and will include all the DLC that was released for the PS3 version, all on one card. So even if you have already played Disgaea 3 on the PS3 system, you’ll have something new to experience with this PS Vita version!

Of course, there will be some PS Vita specific systems integrated into the game, as well. For example, there is a system called “Honor Quotient,” which uses the GPS to track how far you’ve traveled while playing the game. The more you travel, the higher your Honor Quotient will rise (you’ll be able to increase your Honor Quotient by winning battles, increasing your total play time, and by other means as well). With a high Honor Quotient, you will be able to gain more experience points, Mana points, get discounts at item shops, etc. So, don’t forget to take your PS Vita with you wherever you go! Also, with the rear touch panel, you can view the map from any angle. It sometimes gets really crowded and busy on the map, but with this camera angle control, you’ll be able to see your map much easier.

Let’s talk about the new characters for Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention. You’ll be introduced to two new characters, Rutile and Stella. Rutile is half-Nekomata, half-human. She was raised in the Human World, so she doesn’t really know much about the Netherworld. She enters Evil Academy as a transfer student. The other character is Stella, who is the student body president and daughter of the dean of the rival school, Death Institute, Majin Academy. She is a snobby rich girl, but she also loves playing tricks on others. She loves elegance, and believes that everything she does is “elegant.” …We’ll see about that!

Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention will be jam-packed with new stuff! Please visit the official website for more information. And, now enjoy the official trailer of Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention!


Thank you for taking the time to read my post today! Have a great day!

Thanks for bringing this over NISA, i played Disgaea 3 on PS3 ( 60% trophies unlocked ) so i highly doubt i’ll get this but will do once it hit a price drop i guess, please bring more PS3 games as i look forward to Neptunia 2 and Atelier Meruru :D.
There are so many games to look forward to and hope to see more NISA avatars too on PSN.

    Hello Destiny89,

    Thank you for playing Disgaea 3 on PS3! I hope you will get a chance to give this PS Vita version a try sometime in the future though. It comes with some new stuff:)

    Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 will be out in a few weeks!

    Thank you for being an awesome supporter of NIS America as always!

    Best,

Will the Honor Quotient only work with 3G Vitas? I remember reading around the Japanese launch that only the 3G version had GPS. I may very well be wrong or misread something, but I guess it’d be something good to know.

If games are going to implement features specific to the 3G version, it might be worth reconsidering which version to get.

The game looks great, by the way. Thanks!

    Hi brettchalupa,

    Hi AterVerus,

    Honestly, we haven’t decided just yet! We are always trying to add some cool goodies, so hopefully it will happen for Disgaea 3, too:) We will definitely talk about that in our upcoming Prinny Bomb!

    Thanks,

I’ve never played a Disgaea game before, would you recommend that I get the two PSP ones before playing this? Or are there other versions that are better than the PSP ones, or would I be fine jumping into this one right away?

    + Nao Zook on February 2nd, 2012 at 4:52 pm said:

    Hi NHDrumline,

    I’d say…just jump into D3:AoD! …but if you’ve never played Strategy RPG, I recommend you to try other Disgaea games such as Disgaea: Hour of Darkness (PSP), Disgaea 2 (PS2 and PSP), Disgaea 3 (PS3), and Disgaea 4 (PS3). Except Disgaea 4, you should be able to find these games with pretty affordable price. You can see if you like the gameplay and system before the Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention release. I hope you’ll enjoy the hilarious characters and crazy game play!

    Thanks,
    nao

This game looks like a ton of fun, but I have to say that the voice acting in the video is atrocious…

Is that the Absolute Victory Unlosing Ranger doing Terra Fire? I’d like to see more games with that character but maybe in a different genre.

vita really needs RPGs, that’s why it’s not selling well and will not sell well until that happens. hopefully sony is already talking with from software to release dark souls on vita.

I’m a big Disgaea fan but I’d rather see Disgaea 4 on PS Vita. I’ll just have to wait I supposed.

Anyways, I platinumed Disgaea 3, so I played it more than enough already!

I have a question.. How is the “Honor Quotient” going to work for the wifi version since it does not have GPS included in the hardware?


22

+ lPHOENIXZEROl on February 1st, 2012 at 11:36 am said:

@20 Loserkid

The WiFi model’s location detection will be done through WiFi hotspots in the Skyhook database.


23

+ Loserkid on February 1st, 2012 at 11:39 am said:

@21 Ah ok. Can you send me a link regarding that information? I would like to read up more on that.


24

+ lPHOENIXZEROl on February 1st, 2012 at 11:51 am said:

Don’t know if the link will go through, but this should explain what the Vita will be using.

+ lPHOENIXZEROl on February 1st, 2012 at 11:53 am said:

@23 Loserkid

Well, I posted a message with a link but it’s requiring moderation. Just search for “Skyhook Wireless” it’ll bring you to their site and you should be able to find the page that explains how it works.

It won’t be as accurate or widely usable as the 3G version’s but it’s still usable.


26

+ Loserkid on February 1st, 2012 at 12:09 pm said:

That worked, thanks! Hopefully, NEAR will work with Skyhook Wireless.


27

+ lPHOENIXZEROl on February 1st, 2012 at 12:27 pm said:

It should, the WiFi hotspot just needs to be in Skyhook’s database. I’m pretty sure the 3G model uses Skyhook too as part of it’s method of location detection.

Normally I’m not one to comment on here very often, but I had to jump in here and say “Thank You” to NISA for bringing your fantastic games over to the US. I didn’t start getting into the Disgaea series until late last year with the first, and loved it. I’ve been playing Disgaea 2 for the past 2 weeks now and am loving it even more than the first. With all the new features and capabilities of the Vita, I’m definitely looking forward to continuing the series. You guys are awesome!

I can’t wait for this game. I have Disgaea 3 on PS3 (which is my first Disgaea game) and I loved it. It would be cool if the character sprites looked more like the ones on Disgaea 4, but I’ll have fun on this regardless.
