According to IGN, the release date for the next entry in the Disgaea series is set for October 6 in North America and October 9 in Europe. NIS America followed up with a Tweet implying that this is legitimate information.
For those unfamiliar with this diamond in the tactical RPG rough, the Disgaea franchise tasks you with taking up the role of a demon Overlord, recruiting soldiers from dozens of races/classes and engaging in over the top grid based battles where the average attack deals 99,999,999 damage (slight hyperbole, but rest assured there will be lots of numbers).
