Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nippon Ichi (Disgaea 5 Complete) targeting Switch with new IPs and sequels

Disgaea 5 Complete has done quite well for Nippon Ichi. Since the game’s launch last year, it has sold 200,000 copies on Switch around the world.

That news comes directly from Sohei Niikawa, the president of Nippon Ichi. Niikawa also said that Switch is one of the platforms the company is targeting for new IPs and sequels this year.

NIS America will be hosting a press event next month. Brand new Switch announcements could be made there potentially, but localizations are more likely. NIS America could be bringing over Your Four Knight Princesses Training Story, which Nippon Ichi is releasing in Japan on March 8.

I look forward to more! Since NIS will localize. I have Lost Legion CE pre-ordered on Switch. Still, need to get Disgaea 5. Never played the series. Played a little of the demo but I was very confused.



That's pretty cool dood!



Good sales for Disgaea, another 3rd party Switch success.



Crossing my fingers for it being new games/projects or at least, ports of recent games. And if possible, NO ports.

It's basically in headline: "Switch is one of the platforms the company is targeting for new IPs and sequels this year".



Keep supporting NIS guys!

Yeah, Disgaea isn't really new user friendly, there's so much stuff it throws at you at the start and it leaves you scratching your head, but once you get round it and figure everything out, you realise it's by far one of, if not the best, strategy RPG franchises ever.

OT: I'm fine with them targeting Switch with their new games, as long as they're still releasing stuff on Playstation too... not that it'd matter TOO MUCH since I have both anyway lol.



They should do Danganropa



Nothing to see here, move along
