This is a game I don't have nearly enough time to play, but I'm going to buy it anyways.
Fuck yes, I loved the original Disgaea, d00d!!
I wonder if this means they'll bring them all to PC. Otherwise, it'd be a shame, since Disgaea 5 is the most mechanically deep game in the series and definitely the one I'd recommend to people at this point if they hadn't played any.
