Hmm..did Nintendo just keep this off of PS4 in the west? Why would a game like Disgaea (a game that has always been on PS systems more than any other) be exclusive in the west? Well at least it's still coming to PS4. Just not in the west oddly.

Definitely sounds like it, either that, or Disgaea 5 sold a lot better on Switch than it did on PS4.

I kinda think these types of games are perfect for the switch, it looks só good in docked more, these games are perfect in portable mode IMO

I've only played one on the switch. Disgaeas 5. It was great yeah. I've bought many of them for the vita back in the day.

The turn-based combat and kinda small levels are also a good fit for portable play.

I enjoyed part 5 quite a bit, but the game is MASSIVE. I don't think I got anywhere near completing it. I think this exclusive is a good sign for things to come on the Switch.

Almost certainly coming to PS4/PS5/PC as well. 3rd party exclusives are a thing of the past.

I hope you're right Cerebral... if this doesn't eventually come to PlayStation in the west I'll be a little annoyed lol. I could just buy it on Switch, but I guess we'll see what happens...

It does come to PS4 - in japan. I fyou want the localized variant, you apparently better get a Switch.

At some point I imagine it will come to PS5.

But will there be trophies? I rebought 3, 4(vita), and 5 (switch) because I wanted the handheld experience to grind those trophies. Without any incentive I'm not sure how much endless repetition I can take.


trunkswd (on 17 September 2020)

It is coming to Switch not PS4/5

Disgaea 5 despite being on the Nintendo switch still had trophies.
I know it's not coming to Playstation - so does that mean it will be devoid of Trophies/achievements/whatever you want to call them?

Any sense of collection I guess. Trophies, achievements, or even goals. luigi mansion 3 I think even had some form of goals like "all gems on this floor".

Any sense of achievement or checklist.

I guess they will keep the ingame achievements. Why would they get rid of them?

wawesome looks like dis5 sold well!


Chazore (on 17 September 2020)

I would have thought they would have learned from their previous PC port releases, but I guess not. Just another wait for the bargain bin as usual.


TheBraveGallade (on 17 September 2020)
