Disgaea 5 Is In Pre-Production, Fans Vote For Their Favorite NIS Games


Nippon Ichi Software CEO Sohei Niikawa recently told Dengeki Online that the scenario of Disgaea 5 is currently in its preparation stage. Although the game is only in the early stages, he intends for it to surpass the first Disgaea.


This comes after the results of a survey by Dengeki in which fans voted for their favorite NIS games, excluding ports. The top 15 games are:


1. Disgaea

2. Disgaea 4

3. Disgaea 2

4. Disgaea D2

5. Soul Nomad & the World Eaters

6. Disgaea 3

7. Phantom Brave

8. Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure

8. Prinny 2: Dawn of Operation Panties, Dood!

8. Prinny: Can I Really Be the Hero?

11. Criminal Girls

12. Z.H.P. Unlosing Ranger vs. Darkdeath Evilman

13. Makai Kingdom

14. The Guided Fate Paradox

15. Little Princess: The Puppet Princess of Marl Kingdom 2


Niikawa stated that he will use these results as a reference, and if he was to make a Disgaea 4 D2, he would hope surpasses the original Disgaea 4.


Also, Niikawa added that he is happy that the Hayarigami horror mystery series still has a strong fanbase (the first Hayarigami ranked #16).


Along with that series, he will consider turning standalone games in the top 15 into series, Niikawa said.
