If you're a true strategy/RPG fan, you're gonna be picking up Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten on September 6.

And of course, you'll want to pre-order that bad boy. Three options are now available to pre-purchase at the NIS America Online Store , and if you put a deposit down on any of 'em, you'll nab the free soundtrack. And here are the two premium packages:

Disgaea 4 Premium Edition ($59.99)

Disgaea 4 Premium Figure Set ($119.99)

You may have noticed that if you go with the first option, you can get a whole lot of free stuff for no extra cost. To learn more about the game that's destined to deliver hundreds of hours of entertainment, check out our recent preview .

The first option is $10 more than the standard version, so does cost something. Still not a bad deal if you're already set on buying it.

Well you know $59.99 is generally considered to be a standard retail price for video games and sure enough there have been a number of game's priced at $59.99 upon release but with no bonus items included. This is one of the things I like about NIS. They often go the extra mile to give buyers their money's worth.

Well of course you're right, but the fact remains that the standard version is $49.99. And I did say I thought the premium edition was a good deal.

Well on a related note the Free Bonus Disgaea 4 OST is probably called free for a reason. It would seem likely that the 10 dollar difference accounts for the Fuka figurine and Full Color Art book with the OST coming in at no cost.

But on the other hand I think there are probably many who would say that the standard edition is below the standard retail price with the bonus items of the premium edition being free in a way since the whole package comes in at the standard retail price. This is most likely the way Ben is looking at it. So all in all it would seem to depend largely on how you look at it.

But yeah, no matter how you look at it the premium edition is a pretty good deal either way.

Yes! Now if only they'd help to bring Ni no Kuni our way. Have you heard of that one World?

yeah it's looking amazing from what I've seen. I'd love to get my hands on a version I could understand ūüôā

Oh yeah it's made by Level 5 so I think there's a good chance we'll see it.

Not to mention the fact that Studio Ghibli has many fans in the West. So I agree that we will probably see a western release of Ni no Kuni eventually.

Disgaea 3 is one of my favorite games this gen. Unfortunately, I don't have much money, and I'll be picking up Dark Souls instead.

I will get this later on, no doubt about it.

I've never tried Disgaea before, but I really enjoy strategy RPGs. Would I be missing too much by jumping in at 4? If so, will 3 be enough or should I dust off my ps2 and try to find the first two?

If you're talking about the story aspect of Disgaea then no you do not have to play any of the previous games to get up to speed. The Disgaea series doesn't quite work like that. Not exactly anyway. All of the Disgaea games take place in the same universe and sometimes characters from earlier Disgaea games make cameo appearances in later ones. However even so each Disgaea game has it's own independent story with it's own independent cast of characters. So you can jump into any game in the series at any time without having played any of the previous ones if that's what you want.

But even so if you really do enjoy strategy RPGs as much as you say then I think it's safe to say that picking up any game in the Disgaea series would be worthwhile. Admittedly I myself did not get into the Disgaea series until somewhat recently and I'm still getting through the first game. But I am enjoying it.

Although if you plan to purchase a Disgaea game I would suggest you do so directly from the NIS America Online Store if possible. NIS is a great company for more than one reason and I would see them well rewarded for it.
