Nippon Ichi

Disgaea developer Nippon Ichi Software has revealed its newest game in Famitsu this week. Anata no Shikihime Kyouikutan (Your Four Knight Princess Training Story) is in development, and it’s coming to Switch.

Here’s what we know:

Disgaea 5 Complete was most definitely a success for Nippon Ichi. Thanks to how the game performed, it looks like the company will be giving Switch greater support going forward.

Hideki Yasuda from Ace Research Institute filed a new report on Nippon Ichi. It’s said that Disgaea 5 Complete was a big hit. Nippon Ichi released it aiming at the domestic portable market, and shipped 30,000 units. Even more noteworthy was the 100,000 copies shipped overseas. Yasuda goes on to say that Nippon Ichi will shift their policy to multiplatform development of Switch and PlayStation 4 starting with next year’s releases. They will actively commit to Switch as a means of expanding their revenue opportunities.

NIS America has actually been more proactive on Switch than its Japanese counterpart. Aside from publishing Disgaea 5 Complete in North America and Europe, they’re also handling several upcoming games. These include Touhou Kobuto V: Burst Battle, Penny-Punching Princess, and The Longest Five Minutes.

Nippon Ichi has reported its latest financial results. In the company’s report, it’s confirmed that Disgaea 5 Complete has sold over 100,000 copies worldwide.

This number was to be expected given what we previously knew about the game’s performance. While it started slowly in Japan, Disgaea 5 Complete had been off to a strong start in the west. NIS America president Takuro Yamashita said a few months ago that pre-orders were at 110,000 copies in the west. 78,000 units had been reserved in the US, along with 36,000 copies in Europe.

Last week, we came across a Switch classification for The Sexy Brutale from PEGI. The official announcement about a Switch release has now come in from Japan of all places.

Below is a general overview:

[Review] Disgaea 5 Complete

Posted on 4 months ago by (@LyonHart_) in Reviews, Switch | 7 Comments | 0 Likes

System: Switch
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.
