The Disgaea Team Announces A New Game, Looks Like Z.H.P

September 30, 2012

Nippon Ichi Software have announced that the development team behind Disgaea are working on a new RPG for PlayStation 3, which looks to essentially be a spiritual successor to their 2010 PSP game, Z.H.P: Unlosing Ranger vs Darkdeath Evilman. Called The God and Fate Revolution Paradox, the game will be released next year in Japan, and is being timed to coincide with NIS’ 20th anniversary. Like Z.H.P, the game is a roguelike RPG, where players lose their accumulated levels each time they leave a dungeon. However, there’s an overall level statistic, which players pump up by fighting their way through the game’s many dungeons.

Also like Z.H.P, you’ll be able to dress up and customise the protagonist, Renya. In addition, the game also features the lifting mechanics from the Disgaea series, which allows Renya to pick up and throw enemy units. Players will direct Renya around the battlefield using a grid based movement system. That’s about all that’s known about the new title at this point, but NIS also released the first screenshots of the game in action, which you can view below:
