Based around the penguin-like prinnies, NIS has dropped the Disgaea name in favor of "Prinny Can I Really be the Hero?". The game retains all of the humor, story, and difficulty Disgaea fans love, while providing a very unique platforming game.
The premise of the game is this: a prinny stole fan-favourite Etna's desert, and so she commands her Prinny Squad to go out and make her an Ultra Desert. Seems simple and non-life-threatening enough, right? It's not. The squad is made up of one thousand prinnies and therefore you only have one thousand lives to complete the game. While that seems a little excessive, you'll want a lot more on the Hell mode, when it only takes 1 hit to die. As a prinny would say, 'this game is hard dood, ouch.'"
