Disgaea 4 was announced to ship with a Map Edit mode, allowing fans to create their own levels and share them over PSN. However, due to regional regulations and limitations, the map editor has had to undergo some "minor adjustments" to comply with said regulations.
"Regarding Disgaea 4's map edit system, regulation differences between regions made it very difficult to keep in. However, thanks to all the help from our development team and SCEA, we were able to keep the system by making just some minor design adjustments. Players won't be able to create a completely detailed map, but this new system is still a great way to expand the Disgaea universe and share your own creations with players around the nation," says NIS America producer Jack Niida.
Here's a list of the the adjustments made to the map editor.
Instead of individual blocks to create maps, a number of preset "landforms" will be available for users to create their own maps.
Multiples of the same object, not including geo blocks or characters, cannot be placed next to or on top of each other.
- Character/map names and descriptions will be randomized.
NIS America promises that despite these changes, Disgaea 4's core, addicting gameplay will not be affected. Fans will still have access to other online features like the Pirate Creation system, where you can create your own pirate ship and invade your friends' games.
Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten is out September 6 in North America and October in Europe exclusively on the PS3.
