But all other NIS games came after Disgaea, so I guess it has an original plot.

A little something I found about Makai Kingdom on wikipedia:



As I said, the multiverse seems to be the only connection between the games.
I guess lore is not of much importance to NIS. They seem to focus on coming up with the most clever, bashing and dirty jokes for each scene/character. As dentarg mentioned releasing some sort of book or something with more information on lore wouldn't hurt. I don't mind the joking as I actually like it but no reason they can't actually back up their story. ,

As for the terra and omega spells I always thought that they needed no back up story but now that you mention it they seem a lot like summoners in FF tactics which most were ripped from mythology.

The tier names of some classes have mythological backgrounds too. And almost all weapons and most equipment are a reference to some show, movie, game, etc.

Just for the books: Cim lost the war.
But we need him to pay for this place so I hereby reluctantly acknowledge him as the Overlord. For now.
He can get a lawn chair instead of his basket and one extra meal on sundays if he asks nicely.

Disgaea is not Disgaea without tongue-in-cheek humor in it. That's the part I love about the series, the game's combat can look all serious and the like, but it still has that kooky feeling that makes you realize it's a game.

Yet this still makes more sense than Mortal Kombat's lore. XD!

I am liking that Disgaea 4 is starting to focus a little more into the development in each of the classes, such as the Lady Warrior's original rank being known as the Liebe (This was also referred to in Disgaea DS.)

It looks like we will indeed be looking a little more into Disgaea lore as Disgaea 4 nears, this is exciting!

Now that Disgaea 4 is about to come, any chance Disgaea 3 is coming out on PSP like the first two?

No, not at all. If it did, there'd be a massive downgrade in features, playability and graphics. PS3 games are basically blurays. Disgaea 3 has way too much for the PSP to be able to hold it without NIS taking way too much out of the game. :\
