Disgaea 5 is heading to the Switch


'Complete Edition' adds some new features

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 Strategy Role Playing of the original. 

While the story will be the same as the PS4 version, Disgaea 5 Complete will add eight new side-stories in the post game that feature past Disgaea characters. Seven recruitable characters will be added this way, including favorites like Nisa and Girl Laharl. Complete will also add Alliance attacks, a new type of special move that becomes more powerful when you have a strong relationship with a character. 

Disgaea seems like a perfect fit for the Switch, since grind-heavy RPGs and portable consoles go together like bacon and eggs. You can see some artwork and screenshots for the Switch version below. Disgaea 5 Complete will launch both digitally and physically this Spring in North America and Europe, and preorders for the standard and limited editions are now available on the NIS America store.
