Should you get Disgaea 5 Complete on Switch? Take this quiz and find out

A review where you choose the score

Disgaea 5 Complete is a Switch port of the original PS4 game, with all of its relatively pricey DLC included. This the first Disgaea game to hit a Nintendo console since Disgaea DS in 2008, giving Nintendo loyalists plenty of reason to be hungry for the unique blend of sacrilegious storytelling and turn-based action that the series is known for. Being the home to Fire Emblem, arguably the most popular Strategy JRPG series in the world right now, also helps to make Nintendo consoles particularly fertile ground for something like Disgaea. That’s probably why game has already topped 110,000 pre-orders.

There are no Switch-exclusive features to add to the discussion, but the port is clean and glitch free, so if you’re thinking about getting Disgaea 5 Complete when it’s released on May 23rd, start with our original review of the game to learn more. If you’re still not sure what to do after that, we’ve provided a handy quiz below that should help you to decide, but make sure to have calculator of pencil and paper handy.
