Disgaea 5 Complete will launch on the Nintendo Switch on May 26th 2017, MCV can reveal. The Switch port of the PS4 title, Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance, was originally slated for Spring 2017, but NIS America has now confirmed to MCV that the game will be arriving in May.
“Both versions are the same,” NIS America senior associate producer Alan Costa told MCV. “However the Switch version features all the DLC from the PS4 version. We will definitely be emphasising that all DLC can be found on the Switch version as well as highlighting that the game can be played at home or on the go.”
The bundled DLC includes bonus playable characters as well as new scenarios. “This adds many more hours of content and strategy to the base game as well as allowing series’ fans to enjoy their favorites from past games,” Costa said.
NIS America will also be releasing a limited edition of Disgaea 5 Complete that includes a copy of the game, an artbook, a 2-disc complete soundtrack, a zipper pull, and 10 metal lapel pins, which you can view in full below. It will be distributed by NIS America's long-standing partner Reef Entertainment in the UK, alongside the base version of the game.
UK pricing for the limited edition has yet to be confirmed, but it will be available to buy exclusively from the NISA Europe Online Store and Nintendo UK Store.
Costa added: “We’re confident that fans will be excited to play the complete version of this legendary SRPG series.”
