Disgaea 1 Complete Headed West This Fall
For its 15th Anniversary, the original Disgaea gets the HD treatment.
NIS America has announced that the recently-announced Disgaea 1 Complete, otherwise known as Disgaea 1 Refine in Japan, will be headed to the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in the West this fall.
The Disgaea series has seen a variety of releases for the Nintendo DS, various PlayStation platforms and mobile since the original arrived on the PlayStation 2 back in 2003; and as part of its 15th anniversary, NIS is taking the franchise back to its roots.
Disgaea 1 Complete takes the classic Disgaea experience and applies an HD makeover, bringing the graphics up to par with what fans experienced with the more-recent Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance. Furthermore, the game will also feature Etna Mode which was introduced in the PSP Port, Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness.
Beyond that, Disgaea 1 Complete will offer the same experience that longtime fans fell in love with 15 years ago. There will be over the top skills, a variety of team attacks, a plethora of customization options and plenty of humor. Oh, and grinding. Tons of grinding.
As per usual, NIS America is also offering a Collector’s Edition of the game, titled the Rosen Queen’s Finest Edition, which features copy of the game, official soundtrack, official hardcover art book, enamel pin set, orthodox Prinny coaster set, Noppai Etna flat mousepad(!!!), “Poster of Darkness” tear-resistant poster, “Netherworld Unbound” tear-resistant poster, Prinny cube plus, Rosen Queen certificate of authenticity, and Prinny pouch collector’s box. If you’re interested, check out the NIS America Online Store (PlayStation 4, Switch).
The base version will cost $49.99, while the Collector’s Edition will cost $99.99.
If you jumped on board this series midway through, then here’s your chance to catch up and see how it all began. Granted, you don’t need to play any of the earlier entries when it comes to each game’s story, but they do help to provide context to the various references made in their post-game.
