NIS America has announced that Disgaea® 4: A Promise Unforgotten will have minor restrictions in the Map Edit mode due to certain regulations. More details after the jump.

“Regarding Disgaea 4’s map edit system, regulation differences between regions made it very difficult to keep in. However, thanks to all the help from our development team and SCEA, we were able to keep the system by making just some minor design adjustments. Players won’t be able to create a completely detailed map, but this new system is still a great way to expand the Disgaea universe and share your own creations with players around the nation,” says NIS America producer Jack Niida. NIS America promises that even with these small modifications to the map editing system, the game will still feature the same undeniable fun and addictive gameplay. Also, there are more features that utilize the PlayStation®Network, such as the Pirate Creation system, that will allow players to further experience the incredibly deep Disgaea gameplay with other users.

Map Editing adjustments:

  • Instead of individual blocks to create maps, a number of preset “landforms” will be available for users to create their own maps.
  • Multiples of the same object, not including geo blocks or characters, cannot be placed next to or on top of each other.
  • Character/map names and descriptions will be randomized.
