Disgaea 2 is a tactical RPG that originally released for the PS2 back in 2006 and is most famous these days for its absolutely insane sense of humor and a leveling system that allows you to infinitely advance your characters. Given that Disgaea 1 ended up being well received on the PC (after some patches anyway), it shouldn't come as much of a surprise to hear that the sequel will be making its way over as well.

According to the recently updated Steam store page, Disgaea 2 will bring with it all of the content from the PS2 and PSP versions, as well as a couple of little additions exclusive to the PC version. This includes things such as an updated UI, keyboard and mouse support, but also three new playable characters that never made their way to the West: Dark Eclair, Gig, and Miabel.

Here's the recently posted PC trailer to hopefully give you an idea of what sort of madness you can get up to with Disgea 2, and the series in general:


You can expect to see Disgaea 2 arrive to the PC on January 30th, 2017, though I would advise against pre-purchasing it as Disgeae 1 had a whole slew of performance issues when it first arrived. They were fixed fairly quickly, but its still probably better to err on the side of caution with this one.

With that said, I am more than happy to see another Disgaea game arrive to the PC as our JRPG library is sadly not as expansive as I would like it to be, but things are definitely looking up these days!
