115w ago - NIS America PR / Marketing Coordinator Nao Zook has announced today that Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention will be hitting the PS Vita this April and will be the handheld console's first RPG release.

To quote: Today, I would like to share our brand new trailer for Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention for the PlayStation Vita system. Disgaea 3 for the PS Vita will be released in April.

We are really excited about Disgaea 3 coming out on the PS Vita over here. Yes, it is a port of the PlayStation 3 version, but it will be equipped with new character stories, new systems, new attack levels, new bosses, and will include all the DLC that was released for the PS3 version, all on one card.

So even if you have already played Disgaea 3 on the PS3 system, you'll have something new to experience with this PS Vita version!

Of course, there will be some PS Vita specific systems integrated into the game, as well. For example, there is a system called "Honor Quotient," which uses the GPS to track how far you've traveled while playing the game. The more you travel, the higher your Honor Quotient will rise (you'll be able to increase your Honor Quotient by winning battles, increasing your total play time, and by other means as well).

With a high Honor Quotient, you will be able...

156w ago - Today Ghostlight Community Manager Ross Brierley has made available a video spotlighting Persona 3 Portable, which is coming to PSP consoles in Europe on April 29, 2011.

To quote: I am very excited to announce the upcoming release of Persona 3 Portable, the excellent PSP version of the critically acclaimed and award winning JRPG.

From the opening cut scene, Persona 3 Portable draws you into its unsettling world allowing you to explore the deep contrast between your character's everyday school life and the mysterious Dark Hour, a time hidden between one day and the next where terrible creatures lurk.

As a member of the Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad, you have the ability to cross over to the Dark Hour where you can wield a special innate power - your Persona. When the Dark Hour comes, reality crumbles away.

Your school mutates into a sinister and perilous tower known as Tartarus and the people around you transmogrify into coffins whilst the evil Shadow creatures prey on those who wander unsuspectingly into their realm. Using the powers of your Persona, it is your sole aim to root out the cause of the Dark Hour and protect all humanity from certain doom.
