Disgaea 5 Complete Missing Online Features on PC, Publisher Issues Statement

Disgaea 5 Complete

Nippon Ichi Software’s Disgaea 5 Complete finally released on Steam following a sudden delay many months ago. However, many customers aren’t very happy about it. That’s because Disgaea 5 Complete on PC lacks all of the online features present in the PS4 and Nintendo Switch versions. So if you wanted to use the Map Edit Shop to create custom maps, it’s simply not there.

The major issue for many who bought the game is that none of this was clarified before release. In a statement explaining the lack of these features, publisher NIS America said, “Due to irreconcilable platform differences, it was decided in the beginning of development for Disgaea 5 Complete that the Network functions from the original game could not be implemented into the Steam version.

“We deeply apologize that these differences were not communicated in advance, and we appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter. We would like to remind all users that Steam purchases come with a option to fully refund the purchase if total playtime has not exceeded 2 hours.”

A complete list of missing network features can be seen below:

  • Data Shop – Everybody’s NW, Someone’s Records
  • Netherworld Edit Shop – Netherworld Network, User Netherworld
  • Map Edit Shop – Facility Removed
  • Settings – User Netherworld, User News
  • Strategy Assembly – Spread News to Everyone!, Give Item to a Friend!
  • Netherworld Hub – Map Edit Shop NPC

Sadly, it doesn’t seem like NIS America will be disclosing any specific details on the “irreconcilable platform differences”. Disgaea 5 is still filled with tons of content for the Disgaea faithful, and even contains all the DLC released thus far (check out GamingBolt’s official review of the original PS4 release of Disgaea 5 here). However, this isn’t a good look for NIS America, which also delayed Ys 8: Lacrimosa of Dana for PC numerous times before it released with severe problems.
