NIS America has announced that Disgaea 1 Complete, the HD remake of Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, is releasing on the 9th of October in North America, and on the 12th of October in Europe. The publisher also released a new trailer that shows off the gameplay that you can expect from this wonderful remasterpiece.
Disgaea 1 Complete begins as Laharl awakens from a two-year slumber when Etna, one of the castle’s (devious) vassals, informs him that his father (King Krichevskoy) has died. The young prince realizes what he must do and vows to reclaim the throne. Along the way, he meets Flonne, an angel trainee who was sent from Celestia to assassinate the already-dead King Krichevskoy, but instead follows Laharl and Etna to see if demons are truly heartless.
