NIS America has just announced the port of its strategy RPG Disgaea: Hour of Darkness for the Nintendo DS. Before only available on the Playstation 2 then on the Playstation Portable with Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness (getting some extras as well), fans of the stylus will finally have the chance to invest many hours into this game. Available this summer in North America.
Which adds a bit of a tactical RPG flair to it. The only JRPGs I like at all are tactics games like FFT and Tactics Ogre. (6 minutes ago)
@asdfg: In Divinity, you're given a certain number of AP (action points) to spend each turn, so beyond your combat options you also need to worry about party placement and monster movement. (7 minutes ago)
@asdfg: Nah, a lot of JRPGs don't even factor placement into it.. and just give you a contextual menu to pick from a limited number of options. (8 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: more like strategy instead of button mashing (15 minutes ago)
