Improvements in PS4, Nintendo Switch & PC versions of Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten:

Disgaea 4 & Disgaea 3 has the same gameplay mechanics & some of the narrative elements too. They have separate characters & narratives. Disgaea 4 has more gameplay elements for example in battle & outside, including upgrading your base, creating your own pirates & more.


Disgaea 3 has the core essentials that Disgaea 1 & 2 had built upon. Narrative of Disgaea 3 is better & I love its characters too but part 4 has better visuals & new gameplay mechanics.


I have been wondering for years why Disgaea series is so popular. I love the aesthetic & witty conversation in the game, but I did not like its gameplay. I have tried to play this series many times, but I never played any one of the game in the series for over 5 hours. However, after playing Disgaea 4, I am amazed & I can happily conclude that I finally get the answer.

Disgaea 4 launched on PS3 in 2011, & then launched on PS Vita in 2014 & got a subtitle A Promise Revisited. Then it makes up to Nintendo Switch with title “Disgaea 4: Complete+” & the game has been remastered for new console with all of the content & free DLC “Revisited”.


Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited is the narrative of Valvatorez, a strong vampire who is no longer living the life of a Tyrant. However, giving up the life of a vampire makes him lose many of his powers. However at least he never loses sardines which can help him repel evil.


The narrative is not anything special, but what I like the most after playing the series since childhood is the cast. They are all charming & their dynamics work best for the witty humoristic dialogue. I like its narrative a bit but in truth, I am really amazed by its gameplay.


The combat of the game takes place on grid based maps. Your characters are pre-made heroes you get from the narrative & also customizable heroes that can fall into multiple classes. The game uses turn based combat & over the top camera.


Fights in Disgaea 4 sometimes feel more akin to mini puzzle games. Almost every battle in Disgaea 4 has these, & using them to your benefit can make fights a lot more fascinating.


During battles, you are sent back to your base where you can purchase objects, devices, cure your friends, use mana collected in fights to unlock & enhance skills, etc. One important thing that has comeback from previous game that can assist beginners is the Cheat Shop, first launched in Disgaea D2 & Revisited. This can let you improve how much health, wealth, & experience you get in battles.
