This is one of those titles coming to 3DS that's not getting too much hype, probably because most people are unfamiliar with the franchise. Let's hope E3 raises the game's profile.
S: What goes through your head now with Disgaea the series coming up on so many years of ongoing titles and success?
Sohei Niikawa, President of Nippon Ichi Software: When I was first working on this, I never thought that it would have lasted for a whole 15 years, and at first it wasn’t even intended as a series for overseas publication. We were just thinking of selling it here in Japan. The only reason that we were able to continue this long is that not only do we have a great fanbase here in Japan, but we also have fans around the world who say, “I love this game, I love Disgaea!” It’s really thanks to our international community that we have lasted this long.
S: With such a long-running series, what kinds of challenges do you run into even now when it comes to making each entry?
SN: When we made [Disgaea] 1, we didn’t necessarily expect it to be as well-received as it was. When we had these incredible reviews from the fans who said they love the game, working on the second one we went, “What can we do to make it better than the first? How can we exceed our fans’ expectations?” With 2, after that was 3, then 4, and every time that is our biggest challenge in making this series.
Nice to see our EU friends getting some love for the retail version. Let's hope we see this sucker pop up in the top 10 next week!
The Switch may not have a system-wide achievement/trophy system, but that didn't stop NIS America from including all the trophies that appear in the PS4 version of the game. As you can see in the screen above, the "rewards" you get in-game even pop up on screen similar to how they appear on the PS4. If you're a trophy/achievement junkie, this should be right up your alley!
Disgaea 5 Complete had its physical release date pushed back to June 2nd in Australia, but the eShop version was set to launch earlier. Unfortunately, now the eShop version has also been bumped back to June 2nd as well. Remember Aussies, you can always hit up the other eShop regions and download the game right now!
