Spanning over four major numbered games alongside several portable console ports and spin-off titles… Nippon Ichi Software’s Disgaea series is not just an SRPG but one of the big SRPG’s on the market – with its hundreds of hours of gameplay filled with randomly generated dungeons, insane damage/character levels, comical storylines and (in Disgaea 3 and 4) online features which add another layer to replayability.
Thanks to Udon Entertainment, you can return to the Netherworld with DISGAEArt!!! Disgaea Official Illustration Collection! Compiling over 600 illustrations including character designs, box art, advertisements, pin-ups, short comics, and much more from all four flagship Disgaea video games.
