NIS has another PS4 game in development

Disgaea 5 isn't their only PlayStation 4 title.

Disgaea 5

Disgaea 5 isn’t the only PlayStation 4 game in development at Nippon Ichi Software, company president Sohei Niikawa told

“We’re already preparing [another title] for PlayStation 4,” Niikawa said. “So, to fans of Nippon Ichi Software, if you buy a PlayStation 4 to play Disgaea 5, rest assured that we’re preparing other titles coming afterward.”

Niikawa notes that there are risks for making this sort of move, however.

“If, for example, we’re off our release schedule by even a week, that’s enough to affect our performance for this quarter,” Niikawa said. “But when you look at it in the long term, it’s really important for a small company like ours to take that initiative of putting out PS4 games with this sort of timing that we’ve got going, so when it comes to console projects moving forward, we’re looking to transition into development for the PS4.”

Disgaea 5 is due out for PlayStation 4 in Japan on March 26.
