Most likely a timed exclusive. There's no way this skips PS4/PS5/PC. Nippon Ichi nearly went out of business for a while there. They can't afford to leave money on the table.

I agree and feel it is timed, ,however, Ninty may have financed the game to ensure its exclusivity.

How well do Disgaea games usually sell?



Signature goes here!

Love to hear the story of this. Disgaea has been on the playstation from the beginning. Including still having exclusives .
Nintendo fund it? Sony piss them off?
Also they are still adding Disgaea's to the PC - so how will this skip PC?

More importantly what about the Trophies/achievements/Goals/Checklists.

Still excited though, I'll be there next year.

Well, VGC has Disgaea 3 and 4 with over 500K on PS3 and Disgaea 5 with >300K on PS4 and Switch each (so more than 600K combined). Not a big series, but I liked 5, so I probably will get 6.

Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

It's confirmed for PS4 in Japan, so switch exclusive in the west.



... A Disgaea game not coming to PlayStation (in the west)? What the actual fuck. That's not something I want to hear, unless it's only timed exclusive, in which case that's fine and I'll wait. I could pick it up on the Switch, but I guess we'll see what happens...

I think historically its a playstation title, and because of that most of its fanbase is on playstation.
However its a very japanese game.... so abig part of its sales are also from japan (where switch is doing pretty great).

Something like Disgaea 5 is probably under 1m total sales (both the PS4+Switch version combinded)
