Game Revolution writes: "irst, a little background for those of you who may not have been keeping score:
NIS America's forthcoming Disgaea DS is a port of the PSP title Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness, which was released in 2007-and was itself a port of the original Disgaea: Hour of Darkness (for the Playstation 2). That's right-we're talking about a handheld port of a handheld port of a PS2 game that came out five years ago.
When you say it all at once like that, it sounds…well, it doesn't sound like good news, does it? But here's the kicker-this game seems to actually get better each time it's ported. When Disgaea made the jump to the handheld PSP, it busted out with fresh ad-hoc multiplayer, a spiffy new widescreen presentation, and an entirely new alternate story mode. In a touch of typical Nippon Ichi Software weirdness, the alternate mode assumes that the main character is accidentally killed during the game's opening sequence, thus turning over the entire narrative to a hitherto supporting character!"
