Set to come out nearly a year after the first Disgaea hit PC, Disgaea 2 PC is the definitive edition of Disgaea 2 and will be releasing on PC on January 30th, 2017.
Disgaea 2 PC is going to combine the original PlayStation 2 release of Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories with the updated PlayStation Portable release Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days, which serves as the basis for the PC release. It will also feature three characters who have never before left Japan: Dark Eclair, Gig, and Miabel. The PC release will also feature an updated UI, keyboard and mouse support, and keyboard short cuts.
To celebrate this event, Disgaea PC was updated to include several characters from Disgaea 2. You will now be able to get Adell, Rozalin, Zetta, and Pleinair from Disgaea 2 in Disgaea PC, and it is currently 25% off on Steam.
Additionally, the NISA Online Store will be releasing limited quantities of four special products related to Disgaea 2 PC: a limited edition Disgaea 2 PC art book, a Disgaea 2 PC desk mat, a new Disgaea PC mouse pad, and a standalone remixed Disgaea: Hour of Darkness Premium Soundtrack. Each item can be pre-ordered on the NISA Storefront and ships on January 30th, 2017.
In Disgaea 2 darkness has returned and Overlord Zenon has cursed the land of Veldime, which is transforming into a Netherworld. Memories are lost, bodies demonized, and the world is falling into chaos. The only one unaffected is Adell, a young man who stands up to fight the curse. In this strategy RPG you end up teaming up with an odd cast of characters and can customize your characters with over 200 character classes available in the game to choose from.
Disgaea 2 PC releases on PC January 30th, 2017 and will be available on Windows, Mac, and Steam OS.
This is a promising sign; hopefully the port is better this time than it was for Disgaea PC. Disgaea PC had a lot of issues at launch as it was a very rough port that is still needing patches. Hopefully, that has served as a learning experience for the team at NISA and will enable them to do a better port job this time.
