First Look At The Story After Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten

By Spencer . August 4, 2011 . 2:10am

Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten will debut in North America in a few weeks, which means we won’t see the Fuka & Desco chapters for at least a couple of months. The theme of the story is sisterly love where Fuka acts as a big sister to Desco. Japan gets the extra scenario either as a downloadable episode or retail disc on October 27 and the trailer above is a sneak peek rife with movie parodies of what’s in the pipeline.

  • so should I wait for Disgaea 4 FES

  • Ben Tan

    nis should make a GOTY edition with the story based DLCs

    • HistorysGreatestMonster

      I’d rather they keep it DLC, so I don’t get feel ripped off for buying the first disc, ala Capcom.

    • They do in Japan, we mentioned before and as seen in the trailer there is a new version of Disgaea 4 will come with the Fuka & Desco chapter built in.

  • DLC ruining gaming at the time :(
    its a shame that they are cutting out content so that later they may sell  it at extra charge
    (wasnt one of the puposes of blu-ray to be able to handle huge amounts of data?)

      Jesus Christ. Did you even play Disgaea 3?

      That game had about $50 worth of DLC, yet you could still play it for around 1,000 hours without downloading a single piece of it. All the DLC did was extend the gameplay, much like it is doing here. You are getting a game that, if it was the only game you had for months, you’d still be able to find new things to do, and yet you are complaining about DLC to extend the game a few months later. I don’t get you people, sometimes.

      • Inorite, its not like you have to get it so why bitch about :l

      • $50 it’s too much if already paid for the game. Jesus Christ how can you like it so much, the game doesn’t have a year and they already realesed a lot of stuff to download. Worth it or not I doesn’t matter.

        • HistorysGreatestMonster

          Interesting that I didn’t pay $50 for it. Didn’t get all of it. Just the characters I wanted and Raspberyl mode. In other words, you didn’t HAVE to buy it, so stop complaining.

          And Disgaea 3 came out WAY more than two years ago.

          “Worth it or not it doesn’t matter?”  So… even if it’s worth it, it’s not worth it?  I am confused.  If I like a game enough to finish it, I probably like it enough to want more.  If I want more, and they put in the time to make it, they should be payed for that time.  If it’s not worth $50… then I stop before I hit $50.  Simple as that.

          I think it boils down to this:  Different people value things differently.  If you take umbrage at the notion of $50 worth of DLC extending the life of an already exceedingly long game, well, that’s your prerogative.  I’d hardly agree that it’s “not worth it,” though.  When I can go out and buy a $60 game and have it last a whopping 10 hours, or add a couple dozen hours with $50 in DLC… it seems to me that what’s “not worth it” is the $60 game.

          As for “how can you like it so much,” well, that’s an entirely personal judgement.  Did you know NIS America sells artwork on canvas?  $300 a piece.  I have five of them.  I love each one.  The Disgaea series has entertained me more since it started than anything else, ever.  That’s how I can like it so much.

    • Locklear93


      This is a separate story mode entirely.  It’s not “cut” because it’s not part of the original game in any respect.  I could understand a complaint like this regarding the extra classes and characters they sell (though I don’t agree, even if I do understand), but this?  This would be a completely separate, extra mode even if it WERE in the part of the original content, because it’s not the same story.

      Nevermind the fact that it’s still not out in Japan yet, and Disgaea 4 shipped in February there–it’s not like this is day 1 DLC or something. I really wish I could figure out why people feel like something developed over the course of months, after release of a game should be free.

    • I understand you completely. I miss the days of earlier gaming gens when you had to do certain things to unlock a costume that we see now as DLC for extra profits. It’s best to accept it and not buy it instead of ending up being *****ed out like you were but I understand you. If you don’t agree with it, don’t buy it so maybe one day it’ll end.

  • Methylene

    Does Fuka want to destroy by her own hands all the Prinnies before they become Prinnies?

  • Amazing.

    I still need to get the Raspberyl mode for Disgaea 3, myself. I should really look into doing that sometime.

    • Locklear93

      You should.  I actually liked the plot better than the original Disgaea 3 story.  Of course, the reduced focus on Mao has a lot to do with that…

      • Haha, I personally liked Mao a lot! But I’ve been interested in Raspberyl Mode for quite a while as it is. Just, have to work getting the PSN card for it and then not decide to get a Playstation Classic instead.

        • Locklear93

          To each their own, I suppose.  I really couldn’t stand Mao.  My best friend hated him so much he actually quit playing the game completely. In any event, though, Raspberyl’s mode is well worth it, and a lot of fun.  I particularly liked pounding on its final boss, and Flonne had a cameo, which was nice.

          • I think Mao’s one of those “love them or hate them” characters. I liked Mao because he was just so hammy, and Vic’s work on him in English perfectly conveyed his more nerdy tones. Not to mention the fact that he had a bit more depth to him than one would have thought… Or his and Almaz’s bantering.

            But yeah, I’ve seen about Raspberyl mode and I know about the Flonne cameo. Just whenever I have money I either think of getting a game instead. XD But I should get ittt. I keep restarting Disgaea 3 while waiting for 4 to come out.

          • Locklear93

            Yes, you should get it!  Rather than restarting 3, I’ve been delving more into the end game.  Finally, I have characters with half million stats.  SO long overdue. <_<  I should throw my import of 4 in again and see if I can't muddle past unreadable kanji geo puzzles…

  • Wait, 1:50 was that Gurren Lagann?

  • Raspberyl Mode was the last DLC from Disgaea 3, I hope that this is not the case for D4… I want more DLC’s o-ó

    can’t wait for this dlc and disgaea 4 come out
