Nippon Ichi Software has just dropped a slew of new images for Disgaea Refine, the upcoming remaster of the Hour of Darkness. Right off the bat, you can clearly make out the smoother graphics and updated character models. Moreover, the official Disgaea Refine website has officially opened, offering some information about the remaster. Check out some of the details below, via Gematsu:
Overhauled and Better-Looking Graphics
The graphics of the Disgaea: Hour of Darkness released in 2003 have been remade in high-resolution and optimized for PlayStation 4 and Switch. The graphics of the in-game characters are highly detailed and consistent with the series’ latest entry, Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance.
Nonstandard Combat and Growth, and Endless Completionist Elements
Disgaea: Hour of Darkness is the origin of the penetrating game systems and endless completionist elements that the series has become known for. Level up to 9,999, and the damage dealt by your attacks will also increase. Develop your characters and strengthen your weapons—the more you play this series, the more expansive the nature of the games become.
Charming Characters and a Nonsensical Story
Demons, Overlords, and Angels full of individuality doing as they please. In this game, you can enjoy a nonsensical and thrilling story where the protagonist Laharl, in order to become a great Overlord, leads his vassals Etna and Flonne into battle to reclaim the Overlord’s throne.
Disgaea Refine is slated to launch on the PS4 and Nintendo Switch on July 26 in Japan. Nippon Ichi Software has yet to reveal whether the game will be coming to the west. You can check out the new screenshots below:
