Ultimate Weapon Desco Was Canned As Disgaea 4’s Last Boss

02[1]Born as an ultimate weapon who could destroy the world, Desco was a perfect last boss, but she was scrapped and placed in a Netherworld prison.


Valbatoze, the lead character in Disgaea 4, meets Desco in an eerie, hair-raising atmosphere expecting a tough fights. After the fog clears he sees… a pretty girl? Desco for some reason adores Fuka.

Nippon Ichi also released more details about Disgaea 4’s online system. Players can build a pirate ship and travel to another player’s game. Aside from looking cool, parts have parameters like how many characters you can carry and what floor you can appear on.

After you pick a group of units to explore another world you have to decide whether you want to attack others or act as a helper. If you choose the helper route, a player from a different game can use an item to call a random party to assist them during battle.


Online rankings let you know how your group of pirates stacks up against the world. The game keeps track of the number of KOs and sets up bounties for strong invaders.

Those aren’t the only stats Disgaea 4 keeps track of. The game records your playtime (up to thousands of hours), total level, maximum damage, the number of enemies defeated, and so forth at the data record shop.

  • this game’s gonna be awesome~

    • seriously; they took everything we loved about disgaea; and kept it. then they took the main complaint of disgaea 3 and fix’d it (hd graphics), but still left the old style for fans of it.

      • Zeik56

        I just hope the story is up to snuff. The Disgaea storylines have been lacking after the original Disgaea.

        • Neckbear

          The story, to be honest, looks somewhat promising IF N1 does it right.

          • Zeik56

            I do like the concept, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the writing will be able to realize the potential. I’m not sure why the Disgaea games have been lacking in that department, since I’ve enjoyed practically all their side projects. Here’s hoping though, since if the writing is good this could easily be the best game they’ve released so far.

        • you know, i’ll agree with you on D2, which i felt changing the story form an anti-hero to normal hero hurt alot of the humor the game had going for it; and while D3 wasnt quite as good as the original; i felt it was a close second

          • Zeik56

            D3 was a lot closer to what I expect from the series, but I thought the writing and plot was kind of all over the place. It was a step up from D2 since it focused on the wacky hijinks of the Netherworld, like it should, but it was no Disgaea or Makai Kingdom.

        • BadenBadenPrinny

          Actually I felt that D3 story was rather good despite it’s flaws. D2 on the other hand…….

  • nyoron

    What I’m wondering is, if that tentacle monster is part of her body, or if she’s just riding it.

    • Ragnika

      You know, I think she’s Borderlands’ last boss personified….

  • Aside from Valbatoze looking awesome everything else also looks fabulous. I don’t think I will emerge from my room for several days when I get my hands on this game.

  • Testsubject909

    Thousands of hours huh?

    Wonder how many people’ll reach that far.

    • I was just thinking of the same thing! lol. I have a couple hundred hours on D3.

  • Chow

    Good ol’ fourth-wall-breaking character descriptions.

    • nyrjin

      Really, for a moment I thought that the descriptions was literal, then realized it was NIS, and furthermore it was Disgaea. What I wonder is how many final bosses is she a reference/parody of?

  • BadenBadenPrinny

    Looks like I need to donate an extensive amount of blood

  • Code

    haha fun >w< A new character, and more details, Disgaea 4 definitely is one of 2011's most wanted titles for me! rar, can't wait to light the online world ablaze aboard the Yoshitsuna +o+~!

  • I have to admit that I’m kinda unimpressed with the characters in the game. The new system mechanics however have me jumping up and down.

  • AXEL!

  • ForeverFidelis

    Hell Yes Axel in the main Party is basically confirmed
