Hooray for updated console games being ported to PS Vita! Hooray for PS Vita ports being localized for North America! Hooray for NIS America's second game announcement from their second annual press event in San Francisco! Hooray for Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited! Originally released on the PlayStation 3 in 2011, Disgaea 4 has been updated with tons of content exclusive the PS Vita version of the game. Expect its release in summer of 2014.
What sort of expanded content was added? How about additional scenarios that flesh out the game's backstory, new characters and appearances by some familiar faces, all the DLC from the PlayStation 4 version of the game, more music, more spells, and a ton of additional work to make sure the game looks great on Vita. Apparently no punches were pulled to make sure A Promise Revisited is much better than the original game.
I've loved the time I've spent with Disgaea, though I'd be lying if I didn't say that it really does take a lot of time to get the most value out of it. Tactical RPGs with grid-based combat take a lot of time to figure out, plus losing battles results in gigantic losses of time. Still, there's a reason why Disgaea has a huge cult following, and that's because there's so much content and all of it is very well done. I haven't played Disgaea 4 before, but maybe I will now.
Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited will launch on PS Vita this summer. Check out the announcement trailer that NIS America has released to see whether or not A Promised Revisited is your speed.
