Sage it ain't so
Nippon Ichi's uber-niche strategy role-playing series will be making the jump to the PlayStation 4 next year in Disgaea 5, and the Japanese outfit has released a new trailer to reveal what it has in store.

However, as it was a Japanese event, only an Eastern release date was announced, leaving the usual black cloud over the possibility of a Western launch...

The updated version of the PlayStation 3 title is set to get new characters, all of the DLC from the original version of the game, as well as new sequences, items and more.

Sony's announced nothing in regards to the NGP's third-party line-up, so it's pretty cool picking out these little tid-bits from the developers themselves
The latest little snippet comes via the Holy Invasion Of Privacy, Badman! team, who used the Twitter account of one of the game's main characters (don't ask!) to tease an NGP spin-off. We've never played one of the Badman titles, though they've..

Those of you in the RPG loop will know a little about Nippon Ichi, Gust and Idea Factory
