    Never played the PS3 version, but I really want to get this. Only Disgaeas I’ve played are the first and D2, and this one looks like it’s gonna be my next.

  • I played Disgaea 3 on my PS3. Now I am loving the series, and this needs to come out sooner.

  • stephane3012

    Damn! A week before tales of xillia 2?! There’s no way i can beat this game in time.

    • God

      If the secret boss is as strong as DD2’s Baal, it will probably take you a month or two.

    • SlickRoach

      One does not simply “beat” a Disgaea game.

      • stephane3012

        I actually do. I maxed out my stats in disgaea 3,4 and d2 and stomped the shit out of baal!

        • SlickRoach

          Oh, congrats then! I thought you were one of those people who consider beating the game as just getting to the end credits.

  • Aquarius

    If I ever have the scenario where I can only bring my vita and 1 game to an isolated island, it would be without a doubt one of the Disgaea games.

    You can squeeze a ridiculous amount of playtime out of this series.

    • Aspenharls

      Disgaea 2: DHD ftw
      I love 3 an 4, but they are far too glass cannon-y.

  • Arrngrim

    FINALLY! Been holding off replaying this on PS3 to play it on PS Vita.

  • 3PointDecoupage

    But I want it now! i-i

    • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

      It’s good that it comes in August, gives you a month and some spare change to play and platinum Atelier Rorona+~.

      • 3PointDecoupage

        Rorona will last me a week if that.

    • MXC

      IKR! Come August I’ll be back in school with two part-time jobs and maybe one day off a week if I’m lucky T_T

  • Oh, cool. Forgot that this will include all the DLC, so sort of glad I never did decide to buy the PS3 version. Can already see myself putting away half of my summer break into this one.

    • Steven Lamphere

      Lol didn’t stop me from buying the PS3 version and its DLC, though I knew for a fact it would eventually get a Vita version, and I still plan on buying it…of course Disgaea 4 has officially become my favorite of the series…so that much was guaranteed already

      • Anewme…Again

        How could you know for a fact that Disgaea 4 would get a Vita port when the Vita was released a year after Disgaea 4 was released ?

        • neo_firenze

          Maybe not a “fact”, but it was a pretty safe bet that NIS would make a portable version given their prior support of Sony portables.

          Vita had already been officially announced in January 2011, prior to Disgaea 4 releasing in any territory (February 2011 in Japan, September in NA, and November in EU). And the Disgaea 3 Vita port was officially confirmed in August of that year. So I can certainly see why people would have expected an eventual D4 Vita release.

      • Back when I first got my PS3 (been about 2 years now) I was considering purchasing D4, but sort of never got around to it Of course, I never thought I have Vita this year and this is now on the Vita, so it worked out, lol. Disgaea 2 is my personal favorite, but hope to find 4 just as appealing, if not more, since this and 3 are the only ones I haven’t played yet.

      • SlickRoach

        I share the same sentiments exactly. Also I had to buy the PS3 version for the sweet collector’s edition figurines it came with. I’m a huge sucker for LE games and NIS titles, which spells doom for my wallet. But it’s worth it!

  • Darkwing7

    Only the people that spent all that money on DLC for the past games can truly enjoy the vita ports T-T *all my money wasted, no regrets felt*

    • Steven Lamphere

      Right there with ya!

  • Jettythesunfish

    My birth month! Awesome!

  • Prinny Dood

    Holy shiz dood! Cant to play on dat oled screen dood!

  • Kornelious

    Here’s the Limited Edition. Looks a little cheap like the Neptunia idol one, but I assume that’s because they have there hands full with all their other games, besides a Limited Edition is a Limited Edition :)

    I just hope that they go all out for the Fairy Fencer F Limited Edition :D

    • Darkwing7

      i don’t think the pre-order is cheap i mean like the keychains look pretty nice and the poster is gorgeous along with the nice cloth :| The box is usually what i want most. (Already pre-ordered)

      • Kornelious

        Yeah me too. Gotta love dem boxes :P

    • transferstudentx

      honestly this is one of the worst LEs i ever seen ……..still preordering though!

      • Kornelious

        The only thing that gets me is the microfiber cloth……..is there some sort of appeal to them that I’m not getting? :P

        • Darkwing7

          would you rather wipe your screen with a ragged cloth or a cloth with a sexy image? :| (there are people that really care)

  • Eric Harris

    Just never been a huge fan, enjoy it if you are. Disgaea is just an example of making things complex just to make them complex doesn’t make it better. Different color panels, ladder stacking and throwing. Not really what I call fun.

    • Time Sage

      So basically you’re saying anything beyond “Smash it in the face” is too confusing

      • Eric Harris

        I knew I’d get this defensive response. I don’t mind complexity as long as it’s fun. If you want to play a 12 grid puzzle game play a puzzle game. It doesn’t belong in an RPG though.

        • I understand what you mean but… this has been in the “RPG” scene for like what 5 disgaea games now? pretty sure it has its place

        • Skode

          I love my Skyrims, Mass Effects and Final Fantasy games as much as the next man but for me i grew up on RPGs like Shining Force and Vandal Hearts. Grid based RPGs are not a new concept, they’ve been going on for years. I actually miss them now they are so niche… changed days indeed.

          The great thing about disgaea games is whilst they are complex for new players (for us long term fans its just gradual tweaks and token features added one title to next) you dont need to touch half of the features to enjoy and finish the game. Hell Disgaea games traditionally dont really even START till youve finished the story of them but still just optional.

        • Time Sage

          1. It’s an Strategy RPG. Not just an RPG. Huge difference. A gird is standard. (FF Tactics, Fire Emblem etc.)
          2: The game can be beaten without most of the more complex features. Most of them aren’t that useful or exploitable until the main story is finished and you’re able to start grinding..
          3: Geopanels. Other games have tiles with negative or postive effects (Fire Emblem example: Fighting in sand slows down non mage/flying units while it’s harder to be hit in a forest). Disgaea just makes them bright and flashy and (re)moveable.

          So let me rephrase my statement: “basically you’re saying you don’t like S-RPGs in general”

    • SlickRoach

      Different strokes for different folks. Obviously not everyone is going to be interested in the same types of games and mechanics. And it’s hardly complex when you get the hand of it. After D2 I knew the menus and systems like the back of my hand.

  • Lumibelle

    The funny thing about this is I bought the Ps3 version a while back and barely even touched it due to having so many other games to play….Oh well two platinum trophies in the same game never hurt anyone, I’ll be picking this up when it comes out for Vita

  • I was going to come in and ask “What about Europe?” but it’s right there. :P
    Another great Vita game coming soon I’m looking forward to, as well.

  • Shady Shariest

    I’m pretty sure some people know that i have hype for this.
    So instead of exploding in unintelligent caps lock joy, i shall ask everyone to imagine a Prinny that gets HL as a salary.


  • Ah, it’s the same price for the US Ltd Ed as it is for the UK normal edition. Just preordered the import. Hoorah!

    Disgaea is so much better on handheld!

  • MaximDualBlade

    I have heard just nice things about this one, I’m excited.

  • ヴィンチェンゾ Vincenzo

    Never got into Disgeaea series:Should I strart from this title?

    • DyLaN

      As this entry is a stand alone one plot wise, I think you should be fine.

  • GibbRS

    Disgaea 4 Vita is great. They added some of the features from Disgaea D2 to it, like the cheat menu and promotions (upgrade to the next class rank without starting from level 1 again) so it’s a lot more user friendly.

    • SlickRoach

      Yes! Promoting made things sooo much easier than re-re-re-reincarnating every time to get to the next palette swap haha.

  • I’m loving it. I play the originals on the home consoles then I get the Ultimate editions for the gorgeous Vita. Enough gaming to last me four lifetimes.

  • I’ve had it preordered for a few months now
