"We’ve seen tons of Nippon Ichi characters pop up in Disgaea 3 as downloadable content. Some of them like Kurtis are obviously connected to the series. Others not so much.
Sony’s cat mascots are the biggest disconnect yet. Toro and Kuro appeared as free downloadable content in Japan over the holiday lull. Since the crossover is a promotion from Sony Computer Entertainment Japan we probably won’t get these characters in North America unless SCEA decides to release the English version of Minnya no Golf or something."
