Even though Disgaea 5 Complete’s release for PC is supposed to be just five days away, NIS America has this afternoon announced that the game has been delayed until Summer 2018. The reason given for the delay is that new issues were discovered that will take a while to fix. Furthermore, all of the demo keys distributed have been disabled. Those who don’t want to wait until Summer to play the game will be eligible to receive a full refund. The game has been available on Nintendo Switch for nearly a year.
Here is NISA’s full statement:
“Thank you everyone for your enthusiasm regarding the Disgaea 5 Complete release on PC.
As beta testing has been ongoing, we have been fixing bugs and issues as they were discovered. While working on corrections last night, we came across a new issue that requires additional attention that will take more time to resolve. Unfortunately, until this issue can be resolved, the release date will be postponed, and we are now targeting a release for Summer 2018. We offer our sincerest apologies to all who have been looking forward to this release of the game.
Currently, we have had to disable all demo keys that have been distributed. Once we have determined the game is ready for launch, we will open a new demo that will require the use of new keys.
At this time, we would also like to address the concerns of our fans who pre-purchased this title. We will be posting updates as we continue to resolve the issue. The game can be re-installed as soon as the issues have been corrected. We understand that the change in release timing may affect user experience, so as an alternative, we will also be presenting a refund option.”
In addition, NIS America COO Mitsuharu Hiraoka has issued the following statement:
“We thank you all for the support we have been given while we have been working towards the release of Disgaea 5 Complete for PC, and we wish to show our gratitude by providing our fans with the best quality game on the PC platform. We hope that you continue to look forward to this release as we proceed to work tirelessly to correct this issue.”
