Fans of exceptionally long adventures will get their money’s worth next year, as Nippon Ichi has announced that Disgaea 4: Return is in active production for the PlayStation Vita. The port of the PlayStation 3 favourite Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten was announced during an anniversary event in Yokohama.

There’s no word on an international release just yet, but the handheld version of Disgaea 3 did make its way overseas. As such, we’d be surprised if this didn’t brave the long journey westward. During the aforementioned event, the developer also announced Criminal Girls: Invitation for the Vita, which is due out in Japan later this year. Again, details are scarce.
