it just goes to show SRPG is a dead end genre.

it works for Fire Emblem, but SRPGs really are not profitable enough unless they have a dedicated fanbase and diversified protagonist creation options like modern Fire Emblem games do (which also became extra popular with marriage options for both male and female versions of the protagonist, child soldiers, etc.) and also unlike Disgaea, Fire Emblem series takes its itself much more seriously overall, so there is more weight to things that happen.

there are masses of people that despise turn based battles, and SRPG combat is generally much more slower and tedious and require more steps before action takes place,

fewer are tolerant to that genre.


Well even Fire Emblem was going to finished if it hadn't been for Fire Emblem Awakening.

not sure why NIS is in this much financial problem? sure their games might not have huge sales but the games are also not that costly compared to other games,also their fanbase is quite loyal

its very niche fanbase,.

And nothing of value was lost

dude! this could mean the END of Disgaea! show some heart!


thats actually good news, we could use a break from all those rehashed games

it's already been 4 years since the last game and there's only been like 5 numbered iterations over the past 16 years

well i hope FIFA and COD and other such series which crap out games yearly go away as well (not really)

This is a sad day indeed. At least I've been doing my part by purchasing many of their games.

FIFA has been yearly for DOS/Windows since like 1996.

the story is one of the best of the disgaea if not the best and better then a lot of game out there,seriously the story is really great,and they haven't really released disgaea 1 that much the comnplete version it's on PS4 and PC

eh, to you. to me, it was meh as s***, with too many anime tropes, friendship is magic type stuff, and too little dark humor/demon traits the series had before. and iirc, they released disgaea on ps2, 4, psp, ds, and pc, as well as the switch. that's 6 different consoles. that's quite a lot of rereleases, especially for a kinda meh niche series. skyrim's on pc, ps3, 4, xbox 1, 360, and switch - 6 consoles, too. the point's not exactly far off the mark.

it wasn't s*** at all,the fact that it was a bit more serious made a lot better then other disgaea actually compared to other disgaeas it was an actual story, the character were well written,with great character development,great pace. and lol at the full of anime tropes when other disgaea and everything else for that matter is filled with tropes every story out there including western stories have tropes
yeah but who cares about portables? also that's not running the series to the ground that giving more people the oppurtunity to play the game

but the games don't cost that much to make either and a lot of stuff is reused from other games
