Disgaea D2, Time and Eternity, The Guided Fate Paradox on PS3 This Year

Ryan Phillips's Avatar + Posted by Ryan Phillips on Mar 05, 2013 // Marketing Coordinator, NIS America

Greetings, doods! I hope you have all been doing well! I wanted to drop in to talk real quick about all the awesome new titles that were just announced at our annual press event! We have three brand-new PlayStation 3 exclusive titles lined up for release later this year for North America and Europe, so let’s jump right in!

Time and Eternity on PS3

Time and Eternity on PS3

I want to kick things off with our big announcement from this year’s press event! Coming this summer, NIS America will be publishing Time and Eternity in North America and Europe! Time and Eternity was developed by IMAGEEPOCH Inc. and licensed by NAMCO BANDAI Games, and is a very exciting title for us, as it is a brand-new style of RPG using hand-drawn animation! Time and Eternity places you in a serene kingdom where everyone is ready to celebrate the imminent marriage of their princess to a valiant knight. However, when a group of assassins appears during the ceremony, the glorious day is brought to a screeching halt as the knight is mortally wounded in the ambush. As a last resort, the princess reveals her long-hidden secret—there is a second soul living within her, and together, they have the power to travel through time. But can they act quickly enough to reverse the course of history and find out why their wedding ceremony was crashed? All shall be revealed this summer, dood! This title will feature dual audio voicing and DLC, as well!

Disgaea D2 on PS3

Disgaea fans rejoice! Nippon Ichi Software Inc.’s Disgaea Dimension 2: A Brighter Darkness will be illuminating your lives this fall! This title is a direct sequel to the original Disgaea, starring the fan favorite characters Laharl, Etna, and Flonne! Story-wise, Laharl is back and has settled into his duties as a full-fledged Overlord. However, he isn’t getting the respect that he wants from the locals, so he sets off on a journey to get the respect he feels he is owed! Expect the same awesome Disgaea craziness, with new characters and old friends, and new demons ready to punchasize your face! Fans will definitely enjoy the new Master/Pupil system, where the player chooses the master and the pupil, as well as which skills to pass on! Benefits include new skills and higher weapon proficiencies for the pupil, while the master gets a stat boost for being a rad teacher! On top of that, character customization is back with a vengeance! It all will hit later this year for PS3 with dual audio voicing and a bunch of planned DLC!

The Guided Fate Paradox on PS3

The Guided Fate Paradox on PS3

Last but not least, we have another awesome PS3 exclusive title from Nippon Ichi Software, Inc. titled The Guided Fate Paradox! Some folks may remember that way back at the end of 2010, I came onto PS.Blog to talk about our rogue-like title Z.H.P.: Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman for PSP. The Guided Fate Paradox is actually the spiritual successor to Z.H.P. – so rogue-like RPG fans across the world should rejoice!

The story for this title in particular is quite unique – imagine you are at the mall and you are forced to enter a raffle they are running inside… and you win! Congratulations, you winner, you! Your prize? You get to become God! Now that you are God, it’s your beeswax to go through the mysterious Fate Revolution Circuit and guide the fates of those who have prayed to God for help! You won’t be alone, though—you will also have a heavenly host of cute maid-angels and hot butler-angels to help.

“But wait,” you may shout shoutingly, “Ryan, go back to the rogue-like part!” Sure thing! This title takes the seemingly masochistic genre of rogue-like RPGs and makes it more approachable and fun for RPG greenhorns! Already a rogue-like veteran? Not to fret, as you’ll appreciate not only the awesome randomly generated dungeons, but also the insane combinations of items and gear you can use! Tank treads or a Prinny car for legs? Bat wings or robotic helmets? It’s all there, along with some over-the-top Disgaea-like special attacks. Also, look forward to customizing your character, equipping your angelic companions, and delving into dungeons so deep, you might end up on Hell’s doorstep! It’s coming this fall for PS3 with dual audio voicing!

That’s all for now, doods! We’ll be back in a few weeks to get everyone excited for the launch of Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory for PS3, which is set for later this month in North America and Europe! Thanks again for all your support, doods!

    Hello DesolatiionAngel,

    At launch the game will be retail-only unfortunately. I’m not quite sure if we have a PSN version planned for later (like mk2), but hopefully this is something we can make happen in the future.

Hope you make Disgaea D2 Collectors Edition similar to Disgaea 4. That was the coolest CE I ever bought.

And I’ll probably buy all 3 games, even if they don’t come to vita.

Too bad there is no plan yet for Vita version. I like Tactical-RPG, and I love Disgaea, but I don’t have time to play them in the living room on the PS3 (hence I only played the 1st & 2nd on PSP and the 3rd on Vita but not the 4th).
Oh, god of handheld console (if not available at the moment, NIS America will do ^__^) , hear my prayers …

Thank you so much for keeping these on consoles, where I like to play my JRPG’s. I don’t do handheld gaming and it’s frustrating to see things like Persona 4 Golden only released for the Vita. Thank you for continuing to support the PS3 (I hope this continues, even into the life of the PS4). Also, let’s hope Time and Eternity is uncensored, unlike Mugen Souls.

Is Tokito… er “Time and Eternity” being improved on at all for western release? I imported the game, and found it pretty darn mediocre, so much so that I kinda question why you guys decided to bother with it at all.

Highly looking forward to the other two however. Especially Paradox, as Z. H. P was a God like game.

I CANT WAIT FOR DISGAEA D2 ! ! We´ll have such a great Limited Edition like you did with Atelier Series and Disgaea 4 ?

No news about La Pucelle Tactics and Makai Kingdom for PSP/Vita ? NISA has licensed Black Rock Shooter , 2 years ago, and has postned up for a Vita release later, but I didnt see any news anymore.

Is there a chance for the 3 games of Marl Kingdom be released as a PSOne import or a localization?

This news is a few weeks old, glad that it is being shared on here, but seriously this is pretty late for an announcement from almost 2 weeks ago.
Old news aside, I am so happy The God and Fate Revolution Paradox(The Guided Fate Paradox) is coming here. I was worried it might get ignored due to its low sales in Japan. Still not sure why its name was changed, even if it helps clarify the plot better.
And who wouldn’t be excited for a sequel to the greatest Disgaea? Sad they removed magicchange and added Item Sea to replace the Item world. But riding Raspberyl and Priere with the Prinnyback system will add new laughs and hopefully some amazing riding skills.

NISA IS ONE OF THE BEST GAME PUBLISHERS IN THE WORLD.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PUBLISHING THOSE AWESOME GAMES.

Thank you very much for publishing Time and Eternity. It is a unique and a very beautiful game.<3 T_T

The best thing about those 3 great games you announced is that they will have dual audio. Because almost all game companies don't get this, that gamers want BOTH the original Japanese audio and the English audio. Thank you very much for this. T_T

- Please make Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory available on PlayStation Store as fast as you can like Hyperdimension Neptunia MK2, please. T_T

I have some questions, please.

1) Why Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory's US/EU cover is not the same as the Japanese cover? Because the Japanese cover is too AWESOME. T_T

2) Can you please tell us about future plans for one of the best JRPG game series of all time, Hyperdimension Neptunia? Please continue and expand this game series, because it is so awesome. <3 T_T

3) Can we expect a new Hyperdimension Neptunia game on PlayStation 4, since it is easier to develop games on PS4 than on PS3? :)

+ Saeed-Al-Dosary on March 5th, 2013 at 10:57 pm said:

4) Are there also plans to bring Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory and previous games to PlayStation Vita, please? We would like that, please? ^_^

5) Would you please release new and awesome avatars, wallpapers, and themes for Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory on US/EU PlayStation Store, especially the EU PlayStation Store, please? ^_^

6) In addition to that, would you PLEASE publish Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus on PlayStation Vita to US/EU, PLEASE? T_T
This is an awesome game, PLEASE bring it to US/EU for your fans NISA, PLEASE. <3 T_T
And please make it also available on PlayStation Store. <3 T_T

7) Finally, can you please talk with the developers of Disgaea to make the trophies for future Disgaea games MUCH MORE EASY AND LESS TIME CONSUMING, please? Why does it have to take you a year or more to get all the trophies for Disgaea 3 and Disgaea 4? We play games to enjoy them and we don't mind some challenge, but not like this. This is torturing.

+ Saeed-Al-Dosary on March 5th, 2013 at 10:57 pm said:

Please don’t get me wrong, Disgaea is a great game and I love it, but the trophies for Disgaea 3 and Disgaea 4 are just ridiculous.

I think some JRPG games require you less than 90 hours to get all the trophies (Final Fantasy and Persona 4) and they are MUCH EASIER, whereas Disgaea I think you have to play for more than a year to get a bronze trophy, which is so ridiculous.

Plus, I think it would be great for you if the trophies are a little easier, because some people buy games just to collect trophies. Even they play games they don’t even know just because they know they have easy trophies.

Thank you very much for publishing those great games, especially the unique and beautiful Time and Eternity. ^_^

And please continue the support for Hyperdimension Neptunia. ^_^

Also, PLEASE publish Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus on PlayStation Vite to US/EU, PLEASE. T_T

I don’t have any experience with Tactical RPG, and the only JRPGs that I have played (that I can remember) are Final Fantasy XII, which I loved, and Final Fantasy XIII, and I don’t know anything about Disgaera other than some info I skimmed from it’s Wikipedia page.

Considering all that, would you think I would like these games? And is Disgaea: D2 a good place to enter in Disgaea universe (I prefer to start from the beginning of the series, but I only have PS3, so I don’t think I can play the original one). Should I wait and try one of these game when they come out or would you recommend me some other game for introduction to this genre?

I would recommend you to buy Disgaea 4 as your first Disgaea game.
Like you mentioned you have only a Ps3 so you cant play Disgaea 1 unless you buy a Vita or a psp
and Disgaea D2 is a direct sequel to the first Disgaea
Disgaea 3 is also good but 4 has HD Sprites so you ll like it more trust me

If somebody from NIS is reading my comment
PLS bring Disgaea 4 and D2 also to Vita!!!!!!!!!!!!
Guided Fate would be amazing too as i enjoyed Z.H.P on my psp

Will get the original a go and see how I like it.

I was happy when I first saw Disgaea 3′s name in PS+ post, but then I read it’s for PS Vita (which I don’t have)… :(
