Nis America/Nippon Ichi made a name for themselves with the mechanic and system heavy Disgaea franchise and have been since trying to find a suitable follow up franchise. Last year in the US we got Labyrinth of Refrain and I finally had a chance to go through it. What we have is their take on the dungeon crawler which hits more than it misses.
Nippon Ichi and its US branch NIS America have made a name for themselves in the SRPG market with the Disgaea franchise. Each game is a min/maxer’s dream — Allowing the truly dedicated to spend hundreds of hours building their team to achieve complete bad-ass-ery. Disgaea 5 marks the latest in the franchise to come to the PC and give a new set of fans the challenge of the endless grind. As with all of the games in the series, this is a game that you will only get out what you put into it.
