Want to see what Disgaea 4 is like on Vita? Nippon Ichi Software just released a downloadable demo for Disgaea 4 Return. Players can try out the first chapter all the way to stage four and a special Trials mode.


Disgaea 4 Return comes out in Japan on January 30. The Vita version has a brand new character, Nagi Clockwork, and all of the downloadable content from the PS3 release.

  • Actually surprising. I do like it when companies do limited story demos like these. I wonder if the save carries over to the full game for this?

  • Prinny Dood

    So um any chance of localization:-)

    • Greek-God88

      its coming 120%

      • Prinny Dood


    • artemisthemp

      Disgaea and Hyperdimension Neptunia is NISA best selling games, so you can be sure on a localization

      • Prinny Dood

        I hope I haven’t played either of the two games you’ve mention would love to play it in the vita

        • Shady Shariest

          Disgaea 4 is an excellent starting point for Disgaea series, good choice! *Throws Sardines*

          • M3LTY-BLOOD

            Throw money please $$$

          • Shady Shariest

            …Why wan’t money when you can have the ultimate source of energy, protein,vitamins and taste?

          • M3LTY-BLOOD


          • Shady Shariest

            I have no idea what that reads… But will guess it reads:
            Sapuska on valmista!

          • GibbRS

            It says “”arigatou-su!” (su is what NISA translates to “dood” to sound like a Prinny)

          • Shady Shariest


            This prinny-fox will always prefer Dood, though.

      • RagingTiger44

        If the Rebirth versions of Hyperdimension Neptunia come out I might consider them. Disgaea 4 Return is definite buy for me if it comes over.

        • artemisthemp

          I will be all over Re;Birth, when it releases in the West.

          • Arrngrim


    • Kaitsu

      You can bet any Disgaea game to be localized.

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      When have they ever not localized something with on it disgaea

  • Shady Shariest

    *10th time writing this*
    Bought PS3 for the Original.
    Will buy Vita for the this :3

    • Greek-God88

      you should check out some other games aswell for ps3
      like Demons Souls, Last of Us etc.

      • Shady Shariest

        Demons Souls falls to the hard as hell category that Rogue Legacy has filled for me.
        Last of Us… Is just an overhyped game that has a good story, but falls to average levels in gameplay. And i’ll buy games for gameplay.

        I do have tekken and now GFP on Ps3 enough for a while, till i get Vita :3

    • Arrngrim

      After you buy your Vita, be sure to buy Persona 4: Golden.

      • Shady Shariest

        I actually might, with the fanbase of it roaring trough here :3
        “When in Rome…”

  • cloudcaelum

    Can’t wait to play with this super clean 2d arts on OLED, dam… This time will do 9999 level. :P

  • Tatsuya Fabre

    So… no way to get this on a non JP account?

    • michel

      Unfortunately, no…

  • Downloading now…

    I haven’t actually owned a Disgaea game before–is it manageable to jump into the fourth game? I’m not sure how story-driven these games are.

    • AuraGuyChris

      Disgaea 4 is a good place to start as any, though only one character from that cast has already appeared in Disgaea 2. It’s still okay, though.

      You only need to play the other games when you want to know who the hell are these extra post-game characters.

    • Shady Shariest

      Disgaea 4 is a perfect starting point :3
      No worries :)

  • ivanchu77

    Hopefully we don´t have to wait much to get this, the translation is already done after all

  • deadMastershiro

    please let the demo come to NA.

  • GibbRS

    I can’t seem to find the demo anywhere on the Japanese PSN. I’ve tried searching for it on the vita and on my ps3.

    • Zonron

      i need this answer too, what am i doing wrong?

  • Taosym

    Does anyone know where exactly in the PSN Store (JP) the demo is? I’ve looking in Demos and it’s not there, when I search for Disgaea 4 it only shows the videos. Yes it’s in japanese, and yes so is the search fields I’m using. I’m not sure where it is.

  • Earthjolly

  • Zonron
