Summary: Disgaea DS is a grid-based strategy RPG, and is mostly a straight port of Disgaea for the PS2. As with the original, players guide Laharl, the demon prince of the Netherworld, through a ridiculous plot to reclaim the throne of the Netherworld in the face of his father’s death.

Summary: Disgaea DS offers a deep strategy RPG experience with an exceptional story, a fantastic script, and a host of loveable characters and settings. An all-new story focus means a completely different experience for the player, not to mention a brand new ending.
