[UPDATE] NIS accidentally released the Disgaea 5 Complete demo as the full game on PC

[UPDATE] – False Alarm.

It turns out that the Disgaea 5 Complete demo for PC was in fact just a demo. It was three chapters instead of one. 


Original story follows.

NIS America has pulled a SEGA and accidentally released Disgaea 5 Complete in full instead of just releasing the demo. You can grab the Disgaea 5 Complete demo from the special Alienware giveaway. But the Alienware giveaway will give you the full game on PC.

The Disgaea 5 Complete demo goof was discovered by Twitter user Pixelbuster who revealed the details of the blunder in a series of tweets.

The demo is only 999GB on Switch and according to the eShop listing, Disgaea 5 Complete is 6.4GB. When downloading the demo on PC, it is 6.3GB.

Disgaea 5 Complete Demo

Disgaea 5 Complete is a re-release of Disgaea 5 which was released for PS4 and Switch in 2017. A tactical RPG, Disgaea 5 Complete contains the original game and all DLC. The PC version does not include any new content.


A remake of the original DisgaeaDisgaea Remake Refine, is coming to Switch and PS4 later this year in Japan.

NIS’ description of Disgaea 5 Complete is;

Disgaea 5 Complete is a strategy RPG that offers hundreds of hours of over-the-top, award-winning gameplay. The game includes all 8 bonus scenarios, 4 fan-favorite characters, and 3 character classes that were originally DLC in the PlayStation4 release of Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance.

Disgaea 5 Complete tells a tale of revenge and rebellion. As a new and terrible Overlord named Void Dark seeks to enslave the countless Netherworlds, one young demon has stood to end his reign—Killia.

In Disgaea 5 Complete, lead Killia and his tenacious army of rebels on their dark and dangerous path to vengeance. Filled with more over-the-top action and hilarious writing than ever before, Disgaea 5 Complete’s damage numbers are surely headed for the record books.

It’s likely that any redeemed Disgaea 5 Complete demo keys that are the full game that have been redeemed will be revoked, but in the meantime, grab a key and see how far you can get.

Disgaea 5 Complete launches for PC on May 7, 2018.
