A few of weeks ago, in case a few of you have forgotten, a fantastic Twitter user who goes by the handle GILGAMESH501XX ‘Tweeted’ out a picture of a NIS (Nippon Ichi Software) greeting card, sent out to some lucky people as a nice, warm, Summer salutation. Gilgamesh, as I will call him, noticed something interesting about the image featured on this greeting card; the characters shown aren’t that familiar but the way they look, now…that was a different story. Speculation began to gravitate around this image which featured ‘Disgaea-like’ characters alongside a series regular Prinny.
Today, during Sony Computer Entertainment’s pre-TGS (Tokyo Game Show) press conference, it was confirmed that the image that featured on the greeting card was indeed from the upcoming ‘Disgaea 5’. Alongside this confirmation came one hell of a teaser trailer which basically just showed that image again and again…and again and again and again! The game is set for a Japanese release on the PlayStation 4 sometime next year and a release throughout the rest of the world sometime after that so keep your eyes peeled for more information on it as it comes. Remember TGS is only just around the corner! If we’re lucky, we’ll be seeing more of this new ‘Disgaea’ title.
