Disgaea 1 Complete (Switch) Review

The Hour of Darkness Returns, Dood!

It’s hard to think of Japanese developer Nippon Ichi Software without associating it with Disgaea. The strategy RPG series put the company on the map, and its iconic penguin-like Prinnies have become synonymous with their brand.

With the “Ultimate Edition” on Nintendo Switch, the company hopes to reignite that spark for anyone that missed it. And it does so with good timing, hot off the heels of its successful SteamWorld Dig 2 release. Although Heist is set in the same universe, the games couldn’t be further apart in gameplay and plot.
