Over on the PS Blog, Marketing Coordinator Jordan Vincent talked about how Disgaea 5 is taking advantage of the PS4:
With the move to the more powerful PS4, Disgaea 5 is jam-packed with more content than ever before — and all of it looks slick as a whistle! Previous games in the series featured main storylines of 25-30 hours. Disgaea 5 has upped the ante with as much as 45 hours of content for just the main storyline, and hundreds of hours of extra content. Each second of this epic journey is rendered in crisp, HD resolution on PS4 with up to 100 enemies on a level, brand new sprites, tilesets, and ability effects.
Announced just for North America, the Disgaea 5 Launch Edition includes “the full game, reversible cover, 32-page art book, and original soundtrack — all packed neatly into a gorgeous collector’s box!”
Available as a retail and digital title, here’s what NIS America says about Disgaea 5:
The sixth home console entry to the legendary Disgaea series tells a tale of revenge, and of rebellion. As a new and terrible Overlord named Void Dark seeks to enslave the countless Netherworlds, one young demon has stood to end his reign—Killia. In Disgaea 5, lead Killia and his tenacious army of rebels on their dark and dangerous path to vengeance. Filled with more over-the-top action and hilarious writing than ever before, Disgaea 5’s damage numbers are surely headed for the record books.
