Disgaea 6 Complete is the, er, complete version of the crazy strategy RPG that released for Nintendo Switch last year. The latest entry in NIS' long running series, it's packed with all the comedic charm that you'd expect, and our pals over at Nintendo Life recommend it in their Disgaea 6 review. Thankfully, the performance issues that the game suffered on Switch shouldn't be a problem on Sony's systems.
Touted as the most accessible Disgaea yet, it's got loads of quality of life upgrades, and for the first time in franchise history, it uses 3D character models instead of sprites. Outside of that, though, this is still very much a Disgaea game, boasting all of the absurd gameplay depth that hardcore fans enjoy.
Complete comes with every piece of the DLC that's hit since Disgaea 6 launched on Switch — which includes additional characters and cosmetics. It's turn based battling to PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 this summer, but we don't have a specific release date just yet.

Ah this great news as now I can play it without dipping below 10fps and play with the best visuals
The lack of a PS4 version on the initial release went down like a wet fart considering Japan got one. Glad we’re getting all the dlc included too.
I adore Disgaea & was very disappointed with it launching on Switch first even though I own a Switch. Just feels like a PlayStation franchise to me. I knew they would not skip PS.
Day 1 for sure.
I want to love this series so much. I keep buying it. And I keep falling off playing it. I just can't get into the systems no matter how much I love the world, characters, and premise. It's just soooo hardcore in the puzzle play.
But I can't imagine playing this series on a PS. It's a game that needs to be on handheld IMO, and it's a shame the Switch version runs so badly. Vita 2?
Yeah, not a fan of the 3d models... haven't played one since the ps2, but I'm always tempted to try another.
They should do this a lot more release it on Switch and later give us the Complete edition i am in no hurry anymore.
Best news I've heard all year.
It was appalling on Switch so I welcome this with open arms.
Haven't played a disgaea game since PS2 when I was a kid. I remember liking it, but had never really played a strategy game like it before and it kept introducing all these new systems and mechanics as I kept going until I was utterly confused and put it down. I may give this a go now that I'm older and have a few strategy games now under my belt.
Once again a little patience pays off and I’ll be able to enjoy this on my preferred system. The PS4 Japanese release tipped their hand on an eventual Western PS release though. Would be kind of nice if the big three were forced to announce the details of timed exclusivity deals. Would cut back on instances of buyers remorse, and who knows, it might cut back on timed exclusivity on the whole.
Really bad idea to put a 3rd party game only on Switch. Especially when it runs like garbage on it.
After playing MH:Rise and Daemon X Machina on PC,... all 3rd party Switch games should at a minimum come to PC and give people a choice for better hardware/feature set.
I love Disgaea but general consensus is that it is the worst mainline game. I'll probably pick it up when it's on sale.
I am ready to throw down on Disgaea again. It has been awhile.
Of course this happened, I finally bought the game on Switch last week.
I'll double dip at a deep sale probably because man the performance on Switch really is rough.
"Disgaea 6 Complete finally comes to PS4 and PS5 this Summer"
There I gave you a headline that doesn't treat getting a port as some kinda fanboy win.
@HeeHo I don't see anything wrong with the title - it's a PlayStation-centric website using a punchy headline when writing about a game traditionally associated with PS coming back from it's vacation on the Switch. Especially since the game is known for having persistent performance problems on the popular portable platform that is the Switch.
Don't get me wrong, there have been strange/off headlines, but I don't feel this is one of them.
@Agramonte I don’t know it depends on the game. VNs run fine being Switch exclusives such as the Professor Layton series etc. Though I do agree bigger games should try to launch a PC version.
@NEStalgia if you absolutely need handheld version that runs good; you could do a Steam Deck
@Royalblues the thing that annoys me is that it was only a Switch exclusive in the West. Like why ?!?
@mousieone lol, probably true, though pics or it doesn't happen...
I had a feeling this would be brought over to PlayStation eventually! However I shall wait for this to hit $20 like always.
@NEStalgia I don’t think you deserve a handheld Disgaea game that runs well…
@mousieone Probably because Ninty put down some dough otherwise it would be ridiculous.
@mousieone If you saw how bad I am at Disgaea you'd know I don't deserve a Disgaea game no matter how it runs...
@Flaming_Kaiser did you just suggest Nintendo put out money for something, unironically?!
@NEStalgia Yes is that something weird? Tell me what reason they would have to not release a game that has always been on Playstation?
And its released in Japan on all platforms why not in the West i dont any reason how that would work in your favor?
I so see a lot of Playasia release where the Switch has English and PS4 version doenst why would you do something like that its not like you have to do the work twice.
@Flaming_Kaiser Nintendo is cheep cheep. Unlike Sony and MS they rarely, if ever, splash out money for pretty much anything. The most they do is take up the publishing duties (and no doubt a generous cut of the revenue in return) when a company doesn't feel like jumping through Nintendo hoops when it's a close partner like Squeenix or Capcom. Nintendo paying for a low selling, niche game like Disgaea is incredibly unlikely. Sony paying for it would be more likely and even they wouldn't do it.
Most likely, NIS just decided that there's not much Japanese gaming niche on PS in the West compared to Switch anymore and decided to focus their limited budget on the place that would be most successful. It's the same view Sony itself has for their platform now, thus the abandonment of everything Japanese except Astrobot, so can't blame NIS for that opinion much. Sure the game was already made for PS, but it still had to go through separate localization and ratings boards, marketing, distribution, etc, etc. It's just costs and time that they probably determined weren't beneficial at the time.
When the question is "Did Nintendo spend money", the answer should always be "of course not" unless there's definitive statements to the contrary
