NIS America announced today that
Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice for the PlayStation 3 Computer Entertainment
System has shipped to retailers nation wide. Disgaea 3 incorporates features

new netherworld campus setting which gives the game a demented new twist to the
Disgaea world.

sequel to Disgaea , a hardcore, turn based, strategy RPG popular on the
PlayStation 2 and PlayStation  Portable. In Disgaea , character units have

the 3D battle map many of map, which are unique to Disgaea . One of the many new
feature to Disgaea 3 is the addition of a Geo Block, which creates 3 dimensional
battle instead of the traditional 2D. Much of Disgaea 3 is yet to be unveiled,
but rest assured, plenty is due to arrive in the coming months.
