NIS America has explained the lack of online functionality in the Steam version of Disgaea 5 Complete. According to the publisher’s blog post, there are “irreconcilable platform differences” that prevent the network features from working. One of the features disabled in the inferior version of the game is the popular Map Edit Shop that allows users to share their creations. If only Steam had a kind of user sharing “workshop” built into it! Alas. Powerhouse platforms like the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch apparently do not suffer from whatever deficiencies plague the modern gaming PC using Steam.
