Today NIS America announced that the recently-revealed Disgaea: Hour of Darkness remaster that will be titled in Japan Makai Senki Disgaea Refine will come west with the title Disgaea 1 Complete.

The western release will happen this fall both in North America and Europe for PS4 and Nintendo Switch. Below you can read a brief official description if you’re not familiar with the game, that was originally released on PS2 in 2003.

The Overlord is dead. The Netherworld is in turmoil. Time to kick some ass! Netherworld Prince Laharl awakens to fight for his throne and it’s up to him and some unlikely allies to defend what is rightfully his. Together with his devious vassal Etna, the angel trainee Flonne, and a whole cavalcade of explosive characters, Laharl will slash, shoot, and punch his way to the top. Build your squad to level 9999 and unleash crazy special skills, team attacks, and spells to deal millions of points of damage in this zany high-definition remake of an RPG classic.

  • • Feel the Wrath of Laharl! – Take control of Prince Laharl as he conquers the Netherworld to become the Overlord in this zany story of assassins, Prinnies, and robots!
  • • Hours of Darkness! – The original Disgaea is back and better than ever! Play through the main story, or try Etna Mode with extra characters not found in the original release! Get lost in the Item World for hundreds of hours of fast-paced strategy RPG action, now in HD for the first time!
  • • LEVEL UP, DOOD! – Level up anything from characters to items to shops, all while wearing 100-ton boxers! Things not working out in your favor? Head to the Dark Assembly, and be the change you wish to see in the Netherworld!

On top of the release announcement, we also get to see the “Rosen Queen’s Finest Edition” that is already available for pre-order on NIS America’s official store for PS4 and Switch for $99.99.

It’ll include a ton of goodies, listed below.

  • Disgaea 1 Complete
  • Official Soundtrack
  • Official Hardcover Art Book
  • Enamel Pin Set (Set of Nine)
  • Orthodox Prinny Coaster Set
  • Noppai Etna Flat Mousepad
  • “Poster of Darkness” Tear-Resistant Poster
  • “Netherworld Unbound” Tear-Resistant Poster
  • Prinny Cube Plush
  • Rosen Queen Certificate of Authenticity
  • Prinny Pouch Collector’s Box

And yes, that is not a typo. Etna’s mouse pad is a “noppai” mouse pad, which means that it’s flat like a surfboard (“oppai” in Japanese means “breasts). What did you expect from Etna?

If you prefer the standard edition, it can already be pre-ordered from Amazon for both PS4 and Switch.
