Disgaea 5 Complete brings absurdly large numbers to PC on October 22nd

I'm still unsure sure what happened to the PC version of goofy strategy-RPG Disgaea 5. Maybe an ancient curse? Maybe developers Nippon Ichi fell down a hole? Either way, it disappeared at the eleventh hour, after being initially planned to launch in May. Now (bar any further disasters) it's due out next Monday, October 22nd according to publisher NIS America on Twitter. In an odd…

Nippon Ichi’s old-school dungeon crawl Labyrinth Of Refrain: Coven Of Dusk is out now

Big numbers, big monsters, big dungeons and big anime... character sprites. Labyrinth Of Refrain: Coven Of Dusk is exactly what you'd expect from Disgaea studio Nippon Ichi Software taking on the Wizardry-styled dungeon crawler genre. It's an RPG about excess - huge parties of player-made characters with honking great stat sheets, exploring a massive grid-based dungeon in classic first-person style. All with even less artistic…

Labyrinth of Refrain – retro dungeons in Disgaea’s style

Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk is an old-school dungeon delver from Disgaea studio Nippon Ichi, in the style of Sir-tech's classic Wizardry games. Assemble an entirely custom party, loot, level and explore dungeon mazes in first person while trying not to lose too many of your characters to greed, overconfidence and bad luck before you can return to the surface to restock. It's launching this September.

Disgaea 5 Complete delayed days before launch

NIS's strategy RPG Disgaea 5 Complete was due to launch on PC on Monday but oh me oh my that will not happen now. NIS have delayed the game to an unspecified point in summer, saying they've found a big problem that needs extra time to fix. Another big problem has been that the recent limited-release demo, er, reportedly let people play the full game…

The Longest Five Minutes: a JRPG that starts at the final boss

The Longest Five Minutes begins where most games end: the final boss. Plonked in front of an unholy baddie, the hero of this quaintly old-fashioned JRPG has only five minutes with which to pummel them off the face of the earth. It sounds like a pretty short game, but thanks to the awesome power of extended, time-dilating flashbacks, those five minutes are soon blown wide…

Hey Dood: Disgaea 2 Coming To PC In January 2017

The Windows debut of long-running zany JRPG series Disgaea was less than dazzling but I'm glad Nippon Ichi Software stuck with it. A few patches fixed a lot of the PC port's problems, and now NIS have announced they're continuing the series. Disgaea 2 [official site] will be round our way on January 30th, 2017 - a decade ater its PlayStation 2 debut. It sounds…

Grind-o! Japanese RPG Disgaea Coming To PC In 2016

Someone, somewhere, has been keeping JRPGs in a cage in the woods. Perhaps the jailor died, or perhaps the JRPGs rose up and killed them, as now a steady trickle of them are emerging from the trees emaciated, bloodied and gasping, calling out for new players. 2003's Disgaea [official site] is the latest coming our way, another grindomatic tactical RPG. The series may be up…
