Here is a Japanese trailer for Disgaea 4 (warning, possible spoilers).

Since the dawn of time, humans have always feared “the darkness.” Vampires, werewolves, zombies, ghosts… Although it differs slightly from culture to culture, people’s fear for the darkness has grounded them, forcing them to live conservatively. In other words, evil is a necessity.

In the current world… Thanks to wars, terrorism, weapons of mass destruction, horrid accidents and unspeakable crimes… Humans have grown to fear the actions of their own kind more the darkness itself.

This story begins in Hades, a prison located in the deepest depths of the Netherworld. It is a story of social reform that sweeps across not one, but many worlds.”
