Hefty Disgaea 4 Patch Rebalances Map Edit Points, Expands Base Customization

Disgaea 4 has been out for (gets out calendar) two weeks now and there’s already a patch? Yes, and this is a sizable update. Nippon Ichi has a 440MB version update that tweaks two features in the game.

 

Perhaps inspired by Z.H.P: Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman players can edit their base in Disgaea 4. The version update adds another layer of customization, you can choose characters to run shops. Give Fuka a part time job at Rosenqueen or make Flonne the gatekeeper. All you need to do is press the select button while you’re at a base to select characters for stores. Each character has their own dialogue too.

If you want to create custom maps you need CP. These points let players purchase objects and geo objects to design maps, which can be shared online. The version update makes earning CP easier. More CP in the wild should yield more robust maps for everyone to download since map objects are easier to acquire.

The (first?) Disgaea 4 update is available now for the Japanese version. Disgaea 4 is slated for a summer release in North America.

    I like the concept of adding characters from my team to the different positions on the hub world. Also CP for building maps sounds really fun, I hope they don’t make it too easy to build CP and defeat the purpose of it entirely though opo; Looking forward to Disgaea 4 though this summer >w< hopefully for my birthday +o+

    So… Does the main character have a house somewhere with a prinny waifu you can switch around with any other characters you want? Because that’s not something I’d be against.

      Life is so good man, so good. I will need to wait 1 month to get ArTonelico 3 though because im importing, but that wait will just make everything better… I can’t stop thinking about that game now T_T.

      And im starting to get some interest with the Yakuza games too

  • WyattEpp

    Yeah, if Disgaea 3 was any indication, it’ll probably get a couple more updates, too.

    • Code

      Yeah I was going to touch on that — I’m surprised these had to be updates, especially surprised they were 440MB updates opo;;

    After Heavy Rain’s 2gig Move patch, I can’t see anything smaller as a big patch anymore.

    Doesn’t look like the stage clear screen has the random CG any more. How sad.
