Disgaea 3 Unveiled for PS3
NIS America announced today that Disgaea 3 is heading for the PlayStation 3
this summer. Much loved by hardcore gamers around the world, Disgaea makes a
bold new step towards the next generation console with a whole new cast, story,
and game system.
About Disgaea 3
Disgaea 3 is a sequel to Disgaea, a hardcore, turn-based, strategy RPG
popular on the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable. In Disgaea, character
units have a limit to their movement and attack ranges, based on level and
weapons equipped. There are other special game factors that let you take
advantage of the 3D battle map, many of which are unique to Disgaea.
One of the many new feature to Disgaea 3 is the addition of a Geo Block,
which creates a 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.
- Geo Block – A cube-shaped terrain-altering object. Players can use it to
access and attack enemies where normally they cannot reach.
- Geo Panel – A group of stat-altering elemental properties that are placed
upon certain parts of the battlefield. When there are one or more colored
panels on the battle grid, it means an element can affect that area. The
effect can boost or reduce your unit’s stats.
- Item World – A special randomly-generated battle stage within each and
every item you find. By defeating these special battle stages, you are able to
strengthen your items.
