Prepare yourselves, doods - Nippon Ichi has announced that Disgaea 4 Complete+ is coming to Switch this autumn with the above trailer.
This updated version of the original strategy RPG game not only brings the same idiosyncratic characters and world to Switch, but it's also getting post-launch social features that are implied to enable you to share your custom maps. Details aren't too solid in that department, although publishers NIS America confirm that everything that ever came to the 2011 PS3 original will be in this new version, too, including over 30 unlockable characters, extra story campaigns and 'modern flourishes'. Fancy!
Already up for pre-order are the following two packs: The HL-Raising Edition and the more modestly named 'A Promise of Sardines'. Check them out below:
We've had Disgaea 1 Complete and Disgaea 5 Complete, so there's only two more entries after this in need of the 'Complete' treatment. We enjoyed the previous entries, so we'll definitely be keeping an eye on this one.
Played this one already on PS3 or Vita? Think you'll have enough fuel in the tank for an SRPG after Fire Emblem: Three Houses? Let us know below.
aaaa, the best Disgaea game coming, finally.
That poster is absolutely amazing.
"Now just 2 and 3 to catch 'em all, dood!"
I have nothing to add. XD
I would love to get the rest of the series, but really the PS2 games need remastered the most. Makai Kingdom and Soul Nomad are horrendously underrated.
DOOOOOOOOOOOD! I need the rest now too! Having every 5 games standing next to each other as Nintendo Switch physical games would be SO EPIC, DOOD!
I just finished it on psvita. Might double dip (or triple since I want it on ps3 too)
The switch is building quite a nice library of TTB games. Even if a lot of them are ports, portable is the way to go with these timesinks.
Fantastic love 1 and 5, will get this as well.
Wait is this better then 5 as I thought that was pretty good
My thoughts: The gameplay was what it was, probably slightly less complicated than 5 (which I didn't really play). What sets 4 apart is that the protagonist is actually likable and interesting, which was well needed after 3.
I like Disgaea 4 a lot and just played it. But if you have played Disgaea 5 and go back to the older release the combat is slow and there is no skip possible. You can really feel the age going back. But still glad its getting a re-release on newer consoles
I thought NIS was on the verge of bankruptcy. Good to hear that they are still putting out games. I'll try to buy this if only to support them. Disgaea 5 was one of my favorite early Switch games.
I..I can’t afford all of this. Do they take kidneys?
I've bought two of these games and love the humor and art but they get to hard for me about 2/3 the way through.
I need to finish 5, and haven’t started 1.
But I still need this, I want to support the developer too.
Now we just need Etrian Odyssey on Switch.
Pre-order now to recieve a free sardine!
I keep restarting 5. I play for about 5 hours then get distracted by other games. By the time I get back to it, I forget all the mechanics!
...I'll play it... one day...
I put 200 hours into Disgaea 5 but I couldn't get into 1. It felt like every character aside from the MC was worthless. The way you could only get exp for kills, not dealing damage or healing made it next to impossible to level anyone!
I hope 4 is more like 5 than 1 in terms of mechanics.
I'll play it, but I won't be happy. Jk, I love Disgaea, but WHERE'S D6 GOD DAMN IT!
@bluemujika Gameplay wise it's not as good since every installment is a improvement but it has overall better characters than 5.
@Heavyarms55 4 is most like 5 since every installment improves on each gameplay flaws, just dont expect it to be 1 to 1.
Also character balance was improved on each game so you probably wouldn't need to rely on another mc unless you just overleveled him, dood.
@Ardisan Well good! I really did love 5 so if 4 is more like 5 than 1, I should like it. Do you know if by 4 they had it so characters got exp for attacking and healing? In 1 it seemed like you only got anything for delivering the killing blow, which is what really killed the game for me. Made it unplayable.
@Arnold-Kage In terms of gameplay, it's slower than 5 (it takes a lot longer to level up stuff like statisticians), but in terms of characters and how they interact with each other, it's by far the best in the series.
Personally really glad they decided to skip 2 and 3 to bring us 4, since 2 and 3 are remarkably boring (aside from my boys Axl and Almaz, and 2nd best girl Raspberryl). Here's hoping the next port is either Disgaea D2, Soul Nomad, or Makai Kingdom.
@JasmineDragon NIS is still doing pretty bad right now. They're probably porting Disgaea 4 right now because they know it'll be a guaranteed way for them to recoup some money, since it's one of their most acclaimed games.
@Alucard83 You can turn battle animations off in the options menu. That options been around since Disgaea 1.
Thanks for the advice. Still not sure when I be able to buy it at the moment
@Heavyarms55 They did add an update to where u culd get exp now with healers spells
@FirPtl For Disgaea 1 you mean?
yea for Disgea 1 Complete
Was either in the 1.02 or 1.03 update
(1.03 came out back in Feb or March this year)
Anyone knows this release date????
