Posted on 3 weeks ago by Dennis(@LyonHart_) in Reviews, Switch | 7 Comments | 0 Likes
Release date: May 23, 2017
Developer: Nippon Ichi Software
Publisher NIS America
Since its initial launch in 2003, Disgaea has been a flagship series for Nippon Ichi Software – even using Prinny as a mascot – and continues to be nearly 15 years later, having multiple spinoffs and branching off into other mediums such as anime adaptations and manga. What’s made the franchise so great and successful over the years is that not only has it touched multiple platforms on both console and handhelds, but it’s had fun and engaging gameplay that goes beyond the typical layout and flow of a strategy RPG, bringing along a great cast of characters, settings, art, and music to boost. Now Disgaea 5 Complete is making the series’ return to Nintendo consoles on the Switch for the first time since Disgaea DS back in 2008, and packs in all DLC from the original release. Despite the game itself being nearly two years old at this point, it offers those who have held out or simply never jumped into a Disgaea game before a chance to give it a shot. And even though Disgaea isn’t always associated with Nintendo, Disgaea 5 Complete feels comfortable and right at home on Switch, giving RPG and SRPG enthusiasts alike a great new title to get their hands on and delve into.

Disgaea 5 was originally developed for the PlayStation 4. Now that it’s made the jump to Switch in the form of Disgaea 5 Complete, the game’s trophies remain in place.
Above is a screenshot of one trophy you can earn in Disgaea 5 Complete. It pretty much nails the same notification that comes up on PS4 when you earn any trophy on the console. Since Switch lacks system-wide trophies, the ones in Disgaea 5 Complete has one NPC keeping track of them all.

NIS America published a demo for Disgaea 5 Complete on the Switch eShop this week. If you’re on the fence, it’s a good opportunity to try out the strategy RPG.
Some information was floating around that it’s possible to transfer progress over to the full game. But unfortunately, NIS America said on Twitter that it’s not actually possible. You can save in the demo itself, but data can’t be moved over to the retail release.
NIS America passed along the news on Twitter:
We'd like to confirm the save feature of #Disgaea5Complete's demo. The save data cannot be transferred to the full game.

You are able to save during the demo, however. We apologize for the miscommunication with some fans earlier. Thanks for your understanding!
