Disgaea 4 gets Autumn Europe release

PS3 RPG sequel is heading West.

Disgaea 4, the latest entry in Nippon Ichi's much-loved strategy RPG series, arrives in Europe this Autumn, the developer has announced.

According to a post on its official website, the PlayStation 3 title will be on US shelves in September, with a more ambiguous "Fall" release window pegged for PAL-land.

The game, which launched in Japan in February, boasts a new graphics engine and a fistful of fresh battle features. There's also a new map-generating mode that lets you create and share your own stages.

To mark the occasion, the developer has launched a competition to name an in-game weapon, a character and a skill. A dedicated site has just gone live where you can submit your suggestions.

The last outing for the franchise, the superb Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice, arrived on PlayStation 3 back in 2009.
