Disgaea DS gets European release date

Strategy RPG here in early April.

Square Enix plans to put Disgaea DS in PAL palms from 3rd April.

As it's a conversion of Hour of Darkness for PS2, fans can expect a largely unchanged medley of acclaimed strategy and role-playing, plus all the usual quirks and humour.

But there are new bits: a Wi-Fi multiplayer duel system, or the ability to connect to and trade items with friends. Geo Cubes are there, too, and these can enhance abilities, summon monsters or even attack enemies - adding another layer of cerebral depth.

America got its hot-dog fingers on Disgaea DS last August and squirted out a good reception: Metacritic says 81 per cent.

You can expect our thoughts closer to launch.

Until then, head over to our Disgaea DS gallery for the freshly-released batch of screenshots.
