Disgaea 5 sells an impressive 200,000 units on Switch alone

"Copies sold" is one of those things that matters in the eye of the beholder. Square Enix can sell through millions and not bat an eye, but for a small studio? That would be life-changing. NIS reports that through the Switch edition of Disg...


I totally regret canceling my Nintendo Switch pre-order

The blistering cold wind kept me close to the building, my arms tight against my body. I had known it would be chilly but foolishly didn’t prepare for the wind even though I would be right on the water. With two hours to kill, I attem...


Review in Progress: Disgaea 2 (PC)

Here we are, about a year after the launch of Disgaea 5, and I’m reviewing the second game in the series. What a world! Now that the series is gracing the PC platform, I finally have the chance to play it. As a huge Final Fantasy Tact...


Disgaea 5 is heading to the Switch

There were several announcements for JRPGs at tonight's Switch event, but one in particular didn't seem to get a lot of hype. Disgaea 5 will be coming out on Nintendo's new platform in a "Complete Edition" that adds several new features to ...

The PC port of Disgaea is an absolute mess

[Update: Since this report went out, it has come to light that some of the problems may be due to issues with the Steam beta client – a problem I have never encountered with any other game. On testing, I found that not using the beta ...

Europe has to wait an extra week for Disgaea 5

NIS has passed along word that Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance won't reach Europe until October 19, 2015. This one-week delay stems from "unforeseen circumstances," according to a representative, and affects "all retailers in the European ...

Review: Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance

I can count on the Disgaea series. While NIS always seems to be trying to recreate the magic of the initial release, every game manages to capture the essence of SRPGs in a charming and robust manner. The story isn't as impressive as the la...

Disgaea 5 has sexy eye candy for all, dood!

I've got my grubby hands on an early copy of Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance for PS4 and decided to snap some screenshots -- which oddly get watermarked automatically -- while I do what I've done with every game in the series: da...

Disgaea 5's Usalia is adorable, deadly, and rides a Prinny

Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance will be out next month in Japan and later this year internationally, so for now all we can do is look at footage and compare and contrast the newly minted cast to past additions. So far I'm actually enjoyin...

Disgaea 5 opener photo

So, Disgaea 5 is horny/funny s-CRY-ed? Watch the full opener

This may be me projecting. I think about s-CRY-ed a lot. I don't know why. And it certainly did not invent the "guy with cool arm" genre. Still, the first half of this trailer reminded me a lot of s-CRY-ed, and then the second half wa...

Don't count on a Disgaea 5 Vita port anytime soon

Disgaea 1 and 2 were ported to the PSP, and Disgaea 3 and 4 were ported to the Vita, allowing handheld gamers to enjoy the series. Unfortunately it doesn't look like the PS4-bound Disgaea 5 will get that same treatment -...

Disgaea 5's newest trailer is pretty lengthy, still crazy

NIS has released a new video for Disgaea 5, and the animations and insane special attacks are as crazy as ever. I'm really loving the landscapes this time around, as there seems to be a lot more diversity when it comes to the actual battle...
