Disgaea 5 Complete

Some third-party Switch games are off to pretty decent starts in Japan. On the other end of the spectrum, Disgaea 5 Complete and I Am Setsuna have started off slowly.

It was a bit worrying when both titles missed Media Create’s initial software chart for the week of February 27. When the expanded chart came in, we saw that I Am Setsuna and Disgaea 5 Complete were positioned at the 22nd and 26th spots respectively.

Update: There’s been a lot of talk about the click sound Switch makes when you connect the Joy-Con controllers (plus a bit of a video effect). You can watch that at the 7:13 mark below.

NIS America is preparing a special bonus for Disgaea 5 Complete. If you pick up a physical version of the game, you’ll receive a reversible cover. This will be bundled with all copies of the game at launch.

The NIS America Press Event live stream is about to begin. We’ll see the start of the show at 7 PM PT / 10 PM ET / 3 AM in the UK / 4 AM in Europe. Due to it being on Twitch with autoplay, you can head past the break for the stream.

NIS America has indicated that a new 3DS title will be announced, which we expect is the localization of RPG Maker Fes. Also, we should officially be hearing about Disgaea 5 Complete’s release date.

NIS America’s press event is starting to look very interesting for Nintendo fans. For one thing, it sounds like a localization of RPG Maker Fes will be announced. On top of that, a new press email from the company teases the release date for its first Switch game – that being Disgaea 5 Complete.

For the first time, NIS America will be streaming its press event. You can watch it here on February 17 at 7 PM PT / 10 PM ET (that’s February 18 at 3 AM in the UK / 4 AM in Europe).

Nippon Ichi Software president Sohei Niikawa participated in interviews with both 4Gamer and Famitsu. In talking with both sites, he discussed Disgaea 5 Complete and Switch development.

First, on 4Gamer, Niikawa touched on porting from PS4 to Switch. Regarding that, he said the difficulty varies depending on how each studio approaches development. It was relatively smooth for Disgaea. There was nothing NIS had to downgrade, and he noted that even in portable mode, the experience still remain same as PS4 version.
