Product Details:

The awardwinning fan favorite Disgaea 3 is set to join the HD handheld revolution with Absence of Detention, an expanded, enhanced special release for PS Vita, slated to land this spring. With all of the console release's DLC, plus new characters, story chapters, quests, bosses, touch controls, and more, Absence of Detention promises to be one of the biggest Disgaea games yet - and you can carry it in the palm of your hand!

    • Two new characters and story chapters, new quests and bosses, new skills specific to each job and character class, new super moves, new Tera magic, new front and rear touch controls, and new GPS positioning functionality take full advantage of the power of PlayStation®Vita!
    • In previous Disgaea games, new items could be created based on the stats of something else, but the customization stopped there. In Absence of Detention, players can choose how those items look, too, giving them more control over the look and feel of their items than ever before!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Japanese feeling SRPG More mix of Character classes/monsters than other Disgaea games, all DLC included, and easier skill inheriting functions compared to other Disgaea titles, this one is a thrill to play and build that Perfect team!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect port They did really well bringing this over to handhelds, and even included much of the bonus content people bought for the PS3. Overall a fantastic grindfest of epic proportions. Good for casuals who want a good/entertaining story and great for the hardcore gamer who wants to defeat and find all the secrets to the game as they create perfect characters and equipment. Be prepared to waste hundreds of hours!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Do yourself a favor and get this game. Every now and again, you come across a game that absolutely takes you over and keeps you playing for hours and hours due to it's addictive gameplay; Disgaea 3 is one of those games. Right from the start, you can tell that it's an extremely deep RPG that requires a lot of thought and attention, and its worth it. The game is a turn - based strategy game which is flawlessly executed. Another nice touch to the game is it's funny storyline and characters which help add a little bit more pleasure to the player which helps get the player even more involved and attached to the characters and story. The graphics in the game are that of a colorful anime cartoon and look great on the Vita's 5" OLED screen. The sound has a pretty good soundtrack along with great sound effects. Even with all of the awesome things mentioned so far the best aspect of Disgaea 3 is hands down the lasting replay. I am not making the slightest exaggeration when I say that this game provides MILLIONS and MILLIONS hours of playtime. This is due to the level system of characters which all have a maximum level of 9999 (This is not easy to achieve), and the fact that EVERY SINGLE item in the game has a random dungeon within it. With everything I've mentioned in this review you should have absolutley no reason not to pick up Disgaea 3 if your looking for a great game with an incredible amount of replay value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PerfecT!! This is the greatest ps vita game out so far! It is literally the perfect game! Great voice acting, story, and graphics! It's a strategy Rpg and it works magic. You level up your characters and use their special abilities to either heal attack or synch to strategically defeat your enemy. Not only all of this, but for the price, and it comes with all the dlc, it's a steal! You will never beat this game it has so much playability!
