Disgaea 4 Complete+ Review (Switch)

Ah, Disgaea, the meth equivalent of the gaming space. A hard series to get into due to the “million stats” and grind-y nature, Disgaea has still managed to cave a hardcore niche for itself for almost two decades now. Disgaea 4 Complete+ is the revision of the 2014 game for modern consoles, with this specific release being for the Nintendo Switch.

Although some people argue against, on-the-go is the way to play Disgaea games, due to their heavy grind-y nature and for the fact that they’re a huge time sink. Hence Disgaea 4 Complete+ is one of those games that feel right at home on the Nintendo Switch.

The new Complete+ editions a ton of content including all DLC released for the original game. The game is also re-made with high-quality assets that make it look ever so better than the 720p PS3 release.

Disgaea 4 stars Valvatorez, a downfallen vampire that was once one of the most powerful demons across the Netherworlds. Now having given up his title of Tyrant and his older evil way, he now works as correctional offer training Prinnies down in Hades. One of the reasons he’s lost so much power is his old promise to someone special that involved not drinking human blood again. He has now chosen Sardines as a so-deemed ample replacement.

The game’s journey has our villain Valvatorez go against the Corrupterment, the government of Hades, when they take away his Prinnies, preventing him to complete another one of his promises, to feed some promised sardines to the aforementioned Prinnnies.

Disgaea 4, like its predecessors, is SRPG taking place on maps based on grids. There is a good degree of strategy involved in navigating the grids and using different Geo Panels and Geo Blocks all across the map. In the battles, you’ll be using between a selection of story-based characters and custom made characters, each with classes that give them special stats and abilities. As mentioned earlier Disgaea is all about numbers and expect time put in some time to grind for level 9999, all things considered, its pretty fun when you get the hang of it and get into a rhythm or start abusing the so game’s meta. For an in-depth view of the game itself, you can read our review of the original here.

Disgaea 4 Complete+ is a pretty solid Disgaea entry in its own right but amplifies its enjoyment over the PS4 original by being on the Nintendo Switch. If you’re a strategy RPG, own the Nintendo Switch, and love seeing millions on the street then Disgaea 4 Complete+ is worth the investment.
