Disgaea 1 Complete To Release on Nintendo Switch & PS4 Later This Year

In a rather surprising announcement NIS America have announced a High Definition re-make of the original Disgaea game will be released onto the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 later this year within Europe and North America in order to celebrate the games 15th Anniversary.

It hasn’t been made ‘entirely’ clear what differences will be made as part of this High Definition re-make but judging from the announcement screenshots it is being re-build using the similar engine to Disgaea 5, which is of course also available for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStaton 4, with its sprite-based characters and 3D styled environments with turned based gameplay.

About the game:
The Overlord is dead. The Netherworld is in turmoil. Time to kick some ass! Netherworld Prince Laharl awakens to fight for his throne and it’s up to him and some unlikely allies to defend what is rightfully his. Together with his devious vassal Etna, the angel trainee Flonne, and a whole cavalcade of explosive characters, Laharl will slash, shoot, and punch his way to the top. Build your squad to level 9999 and unleash crazy special skills, team attacks, and spells to deal millions of points of damage in this zany high-definition remake of an RPG classic.
Key Features:
  • Feel the Wrath of Laharl! – Take control of Prince Laharl as he conquers the Netherworld to become the Overlord in this zany story of assassins, Prinnies, and robots!
