(http://disgaea.jp/4return ) Rated T for Teen by ESRB. Disgaea 4 came out in 2012 to much fan approval and excitement due to its improved battle system, leveling, demon recruiting, and writing. Around 18 months later Disgaea 4 is back and ready to go mobile on the PS Vita, but is it worth playing again?!
Vita changes and adjustments:
The Vita release of Disgaea 4 is without a doubt the definitive version. Graphics, visuals, sound and core gameplay are unaffected, but damn if this game-card isn’t bursting at the seams with content. I played through the entire main story again just to check the games quality was the same, and to my surprise, found several new chapters, sidequests and content, some of which were DLC for the PS3 release, some entirely new scenarios.
As far as other changes, most of which were to systems and navigation. For instance you can now enter the dark senate directly from speaking to the NPC, you can move your units in battle at any time during your turn, you can rewatch event scenes, there are more skills and units can equip 4 times as many at one time (16s now 64). You can now access a cheat shop a la Disgaea D2. Several new characters have been added, and weapons now change sprites upon equipping.
Tallying up the new content and comparing to the vanilla release A Promise revisited has around 10 “I went through this content at a brisk pace” hours of additional play. On top of the 90+ hours of game in vanilla, you are looking at plenty of bus-riding play time to waste.
Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited is probably the beefiest vita game ever released, and for JRPG fans, it is well worth the purchase. Have at it weeaboos!
