Well, that was a surprise! Nippon Ichi Software/NIS America is known for releasing PC ports and remasters of their titles well after they originally came out for consoles or handhelds. For instance, Phantom Brave debuted in 2004 for the PlayStation 2. It finally arrived on PCs in 2016. The first Disgaea game came out in 2003, and a remastered version was released on Steam also in 2016. Next week, we’ll see the release of Disgaea 5 Complete on Steam. It will also be discounted. That’s something to look forward to, right?
Disgaea 5 Complete On Steam
NIS America previously apologized for the delay of Disgaea 5 on PC. That was back in August, and they only mentioned that the game would be out sometime this October. Fast forward to the present, and, while they haven’t updated the information on Steam yet, they did tweet about it.

So yes, Disgaea 5 Complete will be available on Steam on October 22. Also, if you have an Alienware Arena account, you can play the demo right now. As for the discounted price, it will retail for $29.99 if you pre-order the game or buy it within the first week of release. It’s like an early adopter bonus. The discount is only active until October 29. After that, the game will be priced at $39.99.
Disgaea 5 Complete will come with the full game along with eight bonus scenarios. As is the trademark of the franchise, you can expect to sink hundreds of hours in customization and delving into neverending battles and levels. For those who wish to get the digital artbook, it’s also part of the Digital Dood Edition bundle. This has a small discount on top of the bundled pricing. However, for those who’ve pre-ordered the game back in May, the digital artbook will already be included as bonus content.
So there you have it — mark your calendars if you’re interested in the franchise and its PC iteration. Don’t forget to check out the Disgaea 5 Complete’s Steam store page as well. As usual, PC Invasion will keep you posted with more news.
