Disgaea: Mugen Keitai and/or Makai Gakuen Localization

I know this may be a smack in the face for anyone who knows this game but I would really appreciate at the very least, a digital release of MKD(mugen keitai Disgaea Flonne-hen) or MGD for a US region platform (preferably 3DS/Android smartphone/PSN but I would take anything at this point).

For those of you who don't know what MKD is, it was meant to be something like an adventure rpg that revolved around the world of digaea. Supposedly it also used a unique play style that differed from that of the Main Disgaea series, something like a card based fighting system. The fighting style plays along the line of Kingdom Hearts chain of memories, where you play by selecting cards from your fight deck(includes specials and allows combos) minus the fact you don't really move around on the field. The game allows the player to fully customize their decks and thus completely altering the way the chara fights throughout the game.

MGD(makai gakuen) also was a bold change where it is said to play like a mix between "Mana Khemia" and "Diablo" and played in 3d rather than 2d like typical NIS games.

The games were meant to be released as phone games but like most games of this platform, they never got stateside. I have no idea what happened to sales in Japan to make this game disappear of the face of the planet but is it possible to see it one day in my hands? :oops:

I'm sure if an upgrade was made they would be potential sellers.
For those who can't tell these are two different games that I just decided to put on one request.

I think this would piss a lot of fans off, since it deviates from it's original concept >.>

:?: :?: :?: original concept :?: I'm not sure I understand what you mean. I know it doesn't play like the other disgaeas but that doesn't necessarily mean it's a bad game. I mean I liked KH:CoM and it switched from action rpg to card based fighting style. :|

I understand what you mean but wouldn't the success of this game allow for a new branch of disgaea games? Also Disgaea infinite was a VN and it did really well or was at least received for the most part good reviews, so if that doesn't bother fans then how would this? :|

Thank you? I'm glad I made sense, I wasn't sure for a second there. So where does that leave the game, in limbo or will it find the light of day? I'd really like if I could maybe draw in more opinions on this but I'm terrible at posting on forums also I can't figure out how to post images so I just used links. :)

I for one would really like to try this, I think the character designs are good enough to be in a main series Disgaea game and I would like to know more about those main characters.

Lady samurai? Well I don't know if they are available as playable main characters or not but seeing as my Japanese isn't pro I could only read what mentioned the initial main characters. There is a possibility that this game might have multiple unlockable charas like almost every Disgaea. The article I posted does mention that you can customize the appearance of your chara though.

From what I can tell for MGD; the battle system works like any RPG, where you have basic moves like Attack, Defend, and Special (might have more); and is somewhat like a dungeon crawler. From what I can make from Google translate, it seems as if this has more of a Role-Playing emphasis in it than say most Disgaea games (minus infinite of course) where you can change the outcome of the game and the chara.

The game also uses a quest(they call it trouble) system where you take on jobs given by the Organization(didn't find any names or Google didn't translate) you work for. The article implies that the game might be open ended or substantially long with many Sidequests and DLC's meaning that the games lifespan may be compared to those of the main series. I'm unsure of whether or not the game might have anything like the item world or class world, for those hardcore gamers who love power leveling.

(Google translate not as accurate as I hoped)
