In an interview with Inside Games (translated via Gematsu), Nippon Ichi Software President Sohei Niikawa says that sales of Disgaea 5 Complete have totaled 200,000 copies worldwide. Disgaea 5 Complete is the Nintendo Switch release of 2015's Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance for PlayStation 4.
Most of the sales total comes from North America, Europe, and the rest of Asia, as the Japanese release didn't even chart in the Top 20 of Media Create's sales list during its launch week. That means it sold under 5,481 copies for the week.
Niikawa says that the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch will be the company's core focus for sequels and new titles moving forward. Not that there's much else to support in Japan, as the Vita is nearing the end of its life.
July 12, 2018 marks the 25th anniversary of Nippon Ichi Software. The studio is promising new game announcements and event to commemorate its anniversary year. Dungeon crawler Coven and Labyrinth of Refrain and survival horror title Yomawari: Night Alone have already been teased for sequels. The former has yet to come to North America, while the latter was released on PlayStation Vita in the US in 2016.
