It was revealed in an update today via the Disgaea PC Steam community page that due to “unforseen licensing restrictions” the above track list will not be available. Instead the soundtrack will contain 10 remastered songs to get around the licensing issue. This issue also means that the Digital Soundtrack will only be available to those who pre-purchased it, and the remastering process will likely take them till March to accomplish so it will not be available at launch.

The team finish their update stating that once the new track list has been finalized they will post an announcement. On top of that they also apologize and remind buyers that if this has changed their decision on whether to buy the game or not then a full refund can be initiated through Steam.

What do you think of these issues? Should this have been noticed earlier? How do you think they handled the release of this news?

I have been playing all kinds of games for as long as I can remember with a particular interest in action adventure and platforming titles. While I am primarily an Xbox gamer I also spend a fair bit of time on the PS4 and on my PC in VR.
