Disgaea: Hour of Darkness HD Announced

That’s the first game, dood!

To celebrate the 15th anniversary of Disgaea, developer Nippon Ichi announced in a stream this morning that the original Disgaea: Hour of Darkness would be getting an HD remake. Slated for a Summer 2018 release in Japan, no supporting consoles were given, but as Disgaea 5 launched for PlayStation 4 and Switch, we can guess it’ll head to those two consoles.

Originally launching for PlayStation 2 in 2003, Disgaea: Hour of Darkness is a cult-hit strategy series known for its deep battle system and quirky cast. The game also came to PSP (under the name Afternoon of Darkness, which included a multiplayer mode and an alternate story featuring Etna), DS (which featured exclusive characters), and PC (a bug-ridden release that had to be patched extensively). The game’s success brought about four sequels that have sold over three million units, several spin-offs featuring the Prinny characters, and an anime adaption of the first game in 2006.

What system do you think Disgaea HD is coming to? Let us know in the comments below!
