Hype has been swelling around the the newly announced “Disgaea 5” as of late but with all that hype came soft thoughts of whether or not the new tactical RPG title will actually be making it to the West, especially with the comments made by Nippon Ichi Software regarding their financial situation which, rumour has it, is a false statement.
With so much uncertainty floating around it’s hard to put your finger on some solid information but NIS America have announced something that will bring a little bit of thought stability to fans of the series: “Disgaea 5” WILL be making its way to the West in the Fall/Autumn of 2015 exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
With some awesome updated graphics and the same gameplay mechanics you’ve come to know and love but with a few tweaks for a fresh new take, it’s pretty hard to pass up the new “Disgaea 5” but don’t take it from me, NIS America know exactly why their upcoming game will be legendary and this is why:
Alliance Attacks: New to the Disgaea series, your relationship with your teammates influences a new battle system called Alliance Attack. These special moves are only available to main characters and only when their relationships are appropriately aligned.
Recruitment: A familiar feature for Disgaea faithful, this system lets you choose from over 40 races and jobs, and identify new party members with the exact traits you desire.
Revenge Mode: A game about vengeance wouldn’t be complete without a character stat boosting system based on revenge, would it? The Revenge Mode empowers your characters with bonus stats when they’ve become fed up of their allies being beat on.
Explore the Netherworlds: While previous games in the series have shown a glimpse of the darkness that is the Netherworlds, Disgaea 5 takes you to a myriad of those dark lands.
Definitely over 9,000: In true Disgaea fashion, Disgaea 5 harnesses the power of the PlayStation®4 to deliver battles with a ridiculous number of enemies and outrageous damage.
The sixth home console entry to the legendary Disgaea series tells a tale of revenge, and of 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, 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’s damage numbers are surely headed for the record books.
