"Definitive" Version of Disgaea Headed to PC

The classic strategy RPG is coming to Steam with all content from the PS2 and PSP versions.


The first release in the Disgaea series is coming to PC in what developer Nippon Ichi describes as the "definitive" version of the game.

Having been ported to PSP and DS since its original release on PS2 back in 2003, Disgaea: Hour of Darkness is coming to Steam in February 2016 as Disgaea PC. This version will include everything from the PS2 and PSP versions, including Etna mode.

Nippon Ichi claims it's taken "special care" to optimize the game for PC, promising support for different screen sizes, an improved user interface, updated tile textures, and a new keyboard-and-mouse control scheme. Steam-specific features like cloud saves, achievements, and trading cards are supported as well.

System requirements, as outlined on the game's Steam page, are modest, but you will need a Windows PC in order to play--Mac and Linux aren't supported.

There's no word on whether additional Disgaea games will make their way to PC, but it seems safe to assume that Nippon Ichi will consider it if this release proves to be successful. Meanwhile, the latest game in the series, Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance, just recently made its debut on PS4, and we spoke with the series' writer and executive producer about its history.
