It actually doesn't work though. In the first Disgaea, it came down to who went second. Online play just won't work. Like people have said in the past, online battles don't mix with SRPGs. Why do you think Square Enix hasn't tried it yet? Because it just doesn't work.
The other problem is most companies (even big name companies) have a problem balancing between making a good online game and a good single-player game. This means that one will always suffer. If they added online, it would most likely become the focus. Which, I hate to say is bad. SRPGs are always better when it is just you against the world. I'd much rather have a great single-player campaign than a watered down one with broken online component...which is more than likely what would happen.
Well if fighting against players won't work then maybe we can give NIS an idea. You know how you're able to make levels and share them to other players worldwide in LittleBigPlanet? Well why don't we make a request for us to create our own levels and then let the world try it out. This way nothing won't need to be changed and you can have another player help fight if you wanted like those 3rd party helping units
