Reading is FUNdamental! [Makai Kingdom]

What is Makai Kingdom?
Makai Kingdom (aka Phantom Kingdom) is the fourth of Nippon Ichi Software’s PS2 strategy rpg series. It directly followed Phantom Brave and works sort of like a combination of that game and the original Disgaea. The really interesting thing about it is that it wasn’t originally intended to even exist.

Wait, what?
So, as I understand it, the original game that was to follow Phantom Brave was called Makai Wars, the game which was to start the now perennial bonus character Asagi. Due to technical limitations on the PS2 they ended up scrapping Makai Wars, forcing them to sort of scrape a game together hastily. What’s more, their normal composer Tenpei Sato was busy working on a little game known as Disgaea 2 by this point. So what they did was hire a bunch of awesome dudes to compose some music, came up with some awesome characters, and just sort of slapped something together whose real biggest flaw is that I wish it was longer.
