Disgaea 3 Coming to PlayStation 3

BOOM widget 114147 Japanese developer and publisher Nippon Ichi Software has announced that it will be bringing the next installment of its popular Disgaea strategy RPG series to PlayStation 3. In an announcement initially made at Sony's PlayStation Premiere event in Tokyo and further confirmed with a press release on the publisher's official site, Disgaea 3 was stated as hitting Japanese retail shelves "this winter."

Previous main Disgaea titles have been released on PlayStation 2, with a PSP remake of the original game already out in Japan and due to ship in North America later this year.

The two released Disgaea 3 screenshots are dated 2008, suggesting that the game may be expected on the far end of the winter season. No explicit mention was made of a North American release, nor has NIS America, the publisher's United States division, made any announcements regarding Disgaea 3.
