While Disgaea 4 Return isn’t set to release until late January in Japan, we might be seeing Disgaea D2 Portable sooner than you might think.
Today the Chinese version of Disgaea D2 was uploaded to Sony servers and with that, it’s now appearing on trophy sites. This is a pretty common cycle, since companies want to have their trophy list on the server before the game releases. However, the Chinese version of Disgaea D2 is classified as a PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita title.
With Nippon Ichi really pushing the PlayStation Vita as of late, this could be an indicator that we might see Disgaea D2 Portable in the foreseeable future. This could also mean that Disgaea D2 Portable might not be the GOTY edition Disgaea 3 and 4 were and could just be the base game with maybe some new content. This would be a huge blow to faithfuls, but would make sense given the list includes all the DLC character trophies.
On the other hand, this could just be an error or them planning way into the future. E.X. Troopers was also listed for the PlayStation Vita, though nothing has changed in a year. With this being said, it’s entirely possible Capcom cancelled the Vita version due to E.X. Troopers flopping, but it seems more likely that it was just never planned for the Vita and just an error or wishful thinking.
