Disgaea coming to PC (Steam) in 2016!

Disgaea Coming February 2016
(Polygon)

Disgaea, Nippon Ichi Software's popular role-playing game franchise, is finally making its Windows PC debut. The first game in the series, the PlayStation 2's Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, will be heading to Steam for a February 2016 release.

The strategy RPG, which has been appropriately retitled Disgaea PC, will offer the usual Steam accoutrements, such as achievements and badges. Its user interface will also receive an upgrade.

The version coming to Steam will include all of the added content of the Afternoon of Darkness re-release, which launched on PlayStation Portable and was later ported to Nintendo DS.


How is this not all over the board? I don't think it's a hoax (would be an odd game choice for that).

Here is to hoping the modding community will be able (and willing) to tackle the game and possibly add new classes and stages because PC.

Are the other games, mostly referring to the spin-offs/related games like "Makai Kingdom" and "Soul Nomad", planned to come to PC? Or is this more of a "wait and see how it does" before any more plans are made?

Also, I read that it's apparently the PSP version that's being modified for the PC. Does this mean the DS exclusive content will not be included?

Regardless, while I'm a console person myself, this is good news for the PC crowd who have been waiting for the series to finally come to PC.

I don't know about any of that, I just found out about this earlier. Hopefully clarification will be made soon. I do want Pleinair as playable.

If Makai Kingdom got ported that would be bloody awesome, seeing as it never got a Portable version, unlike Disgaea 1, 2, and Phantom Brave so far as PS2 -> PSP games go.

About that, "Makia Kingdom" did get a PSP port. It just never got brought out of Japan for some reason. Similar to how "La Pucelle" had a PSP port but that never got brought over either, though that could be for different reasons.

Anyway, apologies. I seem to be driving things off topic a bit.

Hang on with your suppositions for a minute, probably will have to wait and see how their first one goes before commitment to later games is made.

Finally.

Now I wonder if NIS did the port, or NISA did the port?

Well, we're not programmers...if that's what you're asking.

Finally. Disgaea coming to pc is something I've wanted for years. I'm sure this one will do pretty decent so we may be getting the other Disgaea's on pc for the next couple of years.

Sorry, Xseed's porting escapades made me unsure.

So NIS is doing the PC ports themselves... interesting.

(Convince GUST too please. Their PS2 catalog would be a smash hit. (Do you still have the PS2 catalog publishing rights? or does TK?))

Well tie me up and force me to reincarnate as a Prinny! Now I feel bad for everyone who asked about this and got shot down! "Definitive Version" (from the gamespot story, Link at the bottom of my post) sounds tantalizing too. What goodies could be packed in now? What could this mean for the future?

Place your bets, people! Recruitable Lamington? The Cast of D5? Flonne Mode? Skippable animations? Cheat Shop? (Oh god, no more stronger enemy bills)
Just from looking at the Steam Screenshots, it looks like Prism Red might be recruitable. (It could just be promotional, but he definitely was not on any of the Gargantua stages with EDF soldiers before.)
Something else to contemplate. Disgaea coming to Steam means Disgaea just became mod-friendly. I've seen some incredible things come out of mods. This release means that over ten years of pent-up creativity is going to burst forth.
This totally seems worth getting!

Psh, NIS won't be satisfied until everyone has Disgaea 9999 times. Then throws them away, and get 9999 ten more times, for a total Disgaea count of 108k. Each time you reincarnate as a Disgaea fan, you get more powerful. What this actually does is a mystery.
