The PC market is getting more Japanese games as Disgaea 4 Complete+ is coming out on Steam. The game is a fresh port to the PC and Xbox coming this year.
Disgaea 4 Complete+ is a stellar 100+ hour tactical RPG reminiscent of Final Fantasy Tactics. Unlike its Square Enix counterpart, this game from NIS America is more fun and cartoony. Fans of the franchise would be happy to get it this coming Fall.
Disgaea comes out of its console exclusivity
Disgaea is one of the many games on the list trapped as Sony and Nintendo exclusives. Compared to the last few years, this was the norm for many games for years. Many won’t remember that only a few years ago, many JRPGs stayed with Sony.
Titles like Persona, Shin Megami Tensei, and others stayed on the PS platform. This move came mostly because of their Japanese roots. Studios from Japan didn’t know how the western market performed and only release on Sony consoles.
This trend broke off when Atlus and Persona 4 Golden got a taste of the PC market. The game got a solid 500,000 player base in less than a month on Steam. Now, Atlus is looking towards porting their games to the Western PC market.
Nippon Ichi Software found this out first, with Disgaea PC ports as early as 2016. NIS is looking to ride the wave of love for old console ports. The upcoming Disgaea 4 port will be a super neat game for fans of the franchise.
Disgaea 4 will follow the same formula
Disgaea 4 Complete+ follows the same formula as other titles in the franchise. Even then, it has a few things that PC fans would appreciate for sure. For starters, the game has a nice pirate feature that lets players invade other players’ games.
The title doesn’t seem to be an HD remix, but it will still likely hold up. Disgaea games are colorful and whimsical to an extent, with robust tactical gameplay to boot.
Once Disgaea 4 comes out for the PC, the last title stuck with Sony is Disgaea 3. Even then, it’s only a matter of time before that comes to the PC too. NIS will also have Prinny titles coming to the Switch this year.
For newbies who want to play Disgaea, it’s best to give some Let’s Plays a good watch first. The franchise is notorious for its steep difficulty curve.
Disgaea 4 Complete+ will come out for the PC and Xbox this coming Fall. There is no exact date of release yet for the game except Fall 2020.
