Description Edit | History

User Summary:

The outlook is grim as the dark Netherworld has been taken over by evil rules who have no rightful claim to the throne! You, as the young prince Larharl, are the heir to the throne and will need to kick some serious evil-guy butt to solidify yourself to your rightful position as ruler of all things evil! To aid you on your way, you need to assemble a team from the 150+ character classes and monsters, find the coolest and shiniest of weapons, and learn to use some of the over 100 mind-blowing spells and special skills that are at your disposal.
Battle your way through your weapons to power them up, try to corrupt the dark assembly, or spend some time in the hospital. No matter what you do, it's time to start acting like the king!

Disgaea: Hour of Darkness was released for the PS2 in 2003.
