Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness (known in Japan as Disgaea Dimension 2 (ディスガイア D2)), is a sequel to 2003's Disgaea: Hour of Darkness for the PlayStation 2, where the respective main characters of that game are once again the focus.
Gameplay in Disgaea D2 remains the same as other core Disgaea games in the series. Monster Mounting is a new feature that replaces Magichange from Disgaea 3 and Disgaea 4. A humanoid character is able to ride on top a Monster allowing the humanoid character to attack on top of the monster while the monster takes damage for the humanoid character. Characters can also build relationships with each other and their compatibility is determined by a heart scale of 1 to 5. This is called "Likeability". Likeability also affects the strength of collaboration attacks used when Monster Mounting depending of the relationship established between a humanoid character and a monster character, as well as the strength and probability or Team Attacks.
