Disgaea is making its way to the PC!

You read right! NIS America has just announced that Disgaea is making its way to the PC via steam. The game is currently available to pre-order on steam now here, however the title won’t be released until Feb 2016. Yes, the very same game was only previously available on console is coming to the PC. Many will recognize Disgaea as tactical themed RPG, similar to Square’s Final Fantasy Tactics, that started out on the PlayStation 2 and has gone on to spawn multiple follow-ups, with the more recent Disgaea 5.

And while the series has been enjoyed more times that I can count, more recently there has been more and more request to have the series ported over to the PC platform and now NIS America has fulfilled that wish.

The required PC specs aren’t too bad either.

Processor: Intel Core2 Duo 2.60 GHz
Memory: 1 GB RAM
