Nippon Ichi Software President Sohei Niikawa recently told Famitsu that Disgaea 6 “will definitely release,” though it may not be out anytime soon. Especially considering that Disgaea 6’s platform, release date, and game content fare still under consideration.
Niikawa also stated that they are currently considering expanding the Disgaea series outside of its SRPG genre, and they might actually pull off considering the success of its spin-off title, Prinny (source: ryokutya2089).
For gamers not familiar with the franchise, Disgaea is a Tactical RPG series created and developed by Nippon Ichi software. The first Disgaea game — Disgaea: Hour of Darkness was released for the PS2 way back in 2003, and since then it has spawned many spin-off titles such as the platformer game Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero?. The series even expanded into a manga and anime series.
Can’t wait for the next main title to come? Well, Nippon Ichi also announced a new mobile game for smartphones this month.
