Disgaea 5 Confirmed For America, TGS Demo On PSN In Japan This October

By Spencer . September 19, 2014 . 5:35am


Siliconera attended the Disgaea 5 press event and confirmed with NIS America that they will bring Disgaea 5 to North America and Europe. The Disgaea series is known for being packed with content and Disgaea 5 has more story than any other game in the series. Disgaea 5 will have 16 chapters.


As reported earlier, Disgaea 5 comes out on March 26, 2015 in Japan. Pre-order will include a code to download a Bunny Girl costume for Seraphene. Nippon Ichi Software also has a limited edition planned with an Usalia plus orange prinny nintengo figurine, a two disc soundtrack, and a hardcover art book are in the package. Here’s a closer look at the figure.



Also, you’ll be able to try Disgaea 5 ahead of the game’s release. The Tokyo Game Show demo will be released on PlayStation Network for Japan region accounts in October. We’ll have more on Disgaea 5 in our hands-on impressions.

    Damn! For a moment I was over the moon that I have a JP PSN account… then reality hit me and I realized I don’t own a PS4 :(

    • Jedahaw

      Reality hits us hard, bro. =(

    • DudeJericho

      With you there :(

  • Anewme…Again

    No surprise here, Disgaea is as much popular in the west as it’s in japan, so it would be much more weird for a Disgaea game to not be released in the west.

  • AndyMAX

    A damn good reason to buy a PlayStation 4.

    • Probably THE reason I’ll get one, honestly.

      • komiko12

        Playing Disgaea is probably enough to last you an entire console generation.

    • Tiredman

      Not quite good enough for me. Probably pick up the collector’s edition and put it away for a later day though.

  • Fidelis

    So the days of not being able to afford the next console that a new Disgaea game is on are about to begin again…
    I had to wait 3-4ish years to play Disgaea 3, here’s hoping that won’t be the case again..

    • Tiredman

      If you are in the U.S. go put a down payment on a console at gamestop, and stick $10 to $20 on it a week. Will take you a number of months, but you can pay one off without hurting the pocket book too bad. I have learned that buying games this way takes away the sting of having to put up $60 right there at the register. Any games store is good for this…..if they have a set up similar to gamestop’s.

      • Ookiiushi Desu

        That’s what I’m gonna start doing. Just like 10 bucks a week for my “Disgaea 5” savings. Gonna buy it and a PS4 the day it comes out XD

        • Tiredman

          I wish I could do that. I am a NISA collectors edition fan, and they don’t do collector’s editions outside of the NISA store.

      • Couldn’t you just put it in a jar or leave it in your bank account? Otherwise Gamestop should pay interest :)

  • pridesin

    Anyone knows what would be the expected release date for the U.S?

    • JMaster3000

      Lets see….
      Disgaea 4 came 7 months in USA after it was released in Japan, if they go with that speed then its gonna be October 2015.
      So Summer 2015 or Fall 2015 is the release date.

    • PSaise1963

      Start making cash right now… Get more time with your family by doing jobs that only require for you to have a computer and an internet access and you can have that at your home. Start bringing up to $8012 a month. I’ve started this job and I’ve never been happier and now I am sharing it with you, so you can try it too. You can check it out here…………………


  • DyLaN

    Wow, that was fast. Then again its NIS/A cash cow franchise.

    • Ookiiushi Desu

      And I will give them my money every single time. Hahahaha XD

  • DanijoEX ♬ the Cosmic Owl

    As expected.

  • I should heavily consider figuring out my Japan account I made a long time back, so I can get this demo… Since I do have a PS4. I’ve played Japanese NIS games before, so I should be fine, right?

  • Suriel Cruz

    I can’t fall back on ‘Disgaea’. I need a PS4 NOW!

  • DesmaX

    Damn, it’s gonna get released before I get my hands on a PS4.

    Oh well, guess I’ll pick it up, and leave it untouched for a while

  • So if we assume this is released outside of Japan by this time next year, then with Disgaea, Persona and other titles (these are the big 2 for me), 2015 will be Sony’s year by far.

  • aizen310

    Body! Shape up!
    Grinding is nigh! And you’ll gonna like it! O_O
    You always will… =_=

  • Draparde

    I’m pretty excited about this! I wanna see the rest of the generics and what other new stuff they add. and it having 16 chapters are pretty sweet. I hope it also has the extra side story stuff during the main game like D:D2 did.

  • Anontastic

    Aaaaw come on

    …I know I’m gonna regret it. I know a better version will come out with all the DLC.

    But I gotta get that LE. Day 1.

    • God

      They should let those who bought the LE download the DLC for free…

  • Dani

    And so the teasing beings again for buying a game for a system I don’t own. Oh well maybe I can convince my husband to buy me one as a valentines day gift.

  • artemisthemp

    News Flash: Another Call of Duty have been announced, clearly the frontage, it’s the news of the Century :P

    We all know that NISA need to get working on Western Disgaea 5 as soon as possible after losing HDN to IF

    • BlackGirlGamer123

      I couldn’t get the rebirth edition thanks to them…

      • artemisthemp

        You mean the Limited Edition?

        • ehtnah

          maybe he mean the physical edition. in Europe HN rebirth is digital only, because ifi doesn’t care about us….
          and the EU store (NISA store) is a joke, a bad one (I think it’s the more expensive store I have seen….).
          so NISA is good, for US, but not so good for european….. I will buy the JP CE because I’m not allowed to buy a US CE, and I don’t want to support robbery, and I will wait for price drop for a US copy….

          • artemisthemp

            I am aware that Re;Birth 1 didn’t get a Psychical release in EU and we’ll the issue with LE not been avaliable to international shopper is found in Amazon stupid system as it doesn’t allow international shipping until hour sometimes days have past.

            NISA EU store is good ad shipping item so, you have them before or on Launch day but, I am still not happy about the missing Reverse cover for the EU version of Fairy Fencer F EU since, I would rather have gotten US version then.

  • Mirai

    Disgaea is one of those series where its more “expecting” rather than “hoping” for a localisation.

    • AkuLord3

      Good thing for that

  • GibbRS

    I wonder if the TGS demo and the Dengeki Playstation Trial version are the same thing. If so, that’s a little upsetting since I pre-ordered an import Dengeki Playstation magazine to get my demo code.

  • landlock

    Well that didn’t take very long.

  • Ookiiushi Desu

    YES YES YES. It is now announced that I will be buying a PS4. lol.

  • BlackGirlGamer123

    I can’t wait to get this!

    I enjoyed the tgs of final fantasy 15.

  • I want Disgaea D2 Vita. And I will wait for Vita version of Disgaea 5. :)

    • Ralopoz

      I’m sure D2 will come to Vita (I’m waiting for it as well). But I doubt Disgaea 5 will come to Vita since even PS3 can’t apparently handle it

      • Ralopoz

        But then again, Ys VIII is coming to Vita and PS4 but not PS3 so I dunno. Maybe there’s a chance we’ll see Disgaea 5 on Vita

        • I guess I hadn’t thought about it! We got Disgaea 1 and 2 on PSP, but they weren’t particularly demanding games. Still, I’m sure they had to make some concessions when porting from PS2. The core game was still there, though, plus a whole lot more. I think the PSP versions of those games are arguably the definitive ones (though I’d be pretty darn excited by an enhanced Vita re-release of 1 and 2!).

  • Kornelious

    Huh, That was a lot quicker than i thought, NISA sure loves the Disgaea series :P Just one more JRPG to add to the PS4! :D

    Hopefully they put that cute figure in their Limited Edition :D

  • xXDGFXx

    I want that Usalia.

  • God

    16 chapters? Damnit, i’m getting my hopes up… I know it won’t be as good as D1, but there’s a little part of me that wants to believe it can.
