Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention Details

Strategy Sony RPG PS Vita News

Nippon Ichi has been busy with its latest Disgaea re-release, Disgaea 3 Return (to be known as Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention in the West). However, they took some time off and gave Dengeki PlayStation some notes on how the Vita’s main features are going to be used in the strategy game.

First up are how the touch controls will be implemented. Both the front touchscreen and the rear touchpad will be utilised but for different functions. The touchscreen can be used to scroll the multitude of windows in the game, presumably status menu and attacking options. The touchpad will be the camera control of the map. Players will be able to rotate and scroll the game map. Zooming was not mention but could be a possibility.

These next two relate to the network capabilities. One of the uses will be the ability to accumulate points that help gain more experience and mana via the positional information capabilities. This might be done via Near, which is the location based software of the Playstation Vita. The other use will be known as “Everyone’s Record,” a mode where one can check out their fellow player’s play time and damage stats. More elements could be added, but those two are the only ones.

Disgaea 3 Returns will launch with the Playstation Vita in Japan on December 17. The West will receive in the spring of 2012.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
