The story is about Valbatose, a vampire who is leading a coup d’état in the Netherworld. Disgaea 4 has a huge evolution in graphics and an online mode. Perhaps, and this is total speculation, for a versus mode.
New sprites(finally), and a metric ton of crazy mechanics.
This deeply disturbs me.

HD sprites though, please.
I just love TBS games and these were always so fun. I look forward to seeing what this new game brings to the table. HD sprites would be cool.
Need more TBS games, developers.
(I swear, if they redid D1 in a PS3 collection like they did God of War and the Ico/SotC collection, they could just have my wallet.)
I need to pinch my gf's psp for a few weeks and finish the main stories of 1 and 2.
I've never been able to put the same kind of time into any of NIS' games since. Which is a shame, because I *love* the updated mechanics of Disgaea 2, especially with the Item World and such, but I don't like the cast nearly as much, which I think is a big part of it.
But I will still probably Day 1 this.
I knew it would happen eventually, but still/
I got my copy for about $17 recently. It's way cheap now.
This is why I don't do any crazy grinding or item world shenanigans until I beat the plot.
They mentioned a year or two back that their next PS3 game would be suited for the hardware quite a bit more than Disgaea 3. I still wouldn't expect it to have super hi-res sprites but I do think it'll look better than Disgaea 3.
Anyway, I skipped Disgaea 2 and 3 (though still bought 2 figuring I'd get around to it... Never did) but I think I'm ready to jump back on the Disgaea train again. Looking forward to it.
The classroom stuff is neat, but having to buy new skills straight up sucks.
By the way, Disgaea 3 is my first and I'd like to know whether I keep everything if I go new game+. I want to try for some of the alternate endings, but I don't want to lose the side characters I've accumulated by completing the extra maps.
Idea Hacktory made that one, I think.
Well, huh, I guess I could see that...two or more teams going at it on a field, turn based style...
Now, I really liked the improvements they made in the mechanics and animation in D2. But, frankly, I really liked the non-grid nature of Phantom Brave, so part of me hopes that's in there too.
All in all, I'm very curious and look forward to more information, screen shots, and video when it becomes available.
I doubt that will ever happen. I assume that Disgaea will always have a grid, and any future alternate series probably will not.
Well, unless they fix up the damage calculations so that defense actually works.
Rumours of them dropping sprites for polygons has me scared.
Hopefully they fix the difficulty curve this time. D3 was... Eh.
Sankaku (NSFW, not linked) is claiming a Feb 24th release in Japan. No word on a US release, hope we... hahaha, yeah right. We'll probably see it around August 2011 (6 months, it took them 7 to do D3) unless they're going to do a simultaneous development/localization thing.
New sprites yaaaaay.
