Fans of the Disgaea series will be able to play the latest entry in the series, Disgaea 7, when it releases in the West this fall.
While Disgaea 7: Vows of the Virtueless is now available in Japan, fans in the West have to wait a bit longer to play the game. NIS released a trailer earlier today announcing that Disgaea 7 will be releasing in the West for PS5 and PS4 later this fall, though a specific date was not revealed.
You can see the announcement trailer below:
The demonic realm of Hinomoto has fallen under a tyrannical regime, and it is up to the lazy warrior Fuji and bushido fangirl Pirilika to fight back while discovering the meaning of honor and redemption! Embark on an epic SRPG adventure stuffed to the brim with new features including Jumbification, Hell Mode, Item Reincarnation, new and improved auto-battle, and online ranked battles! You can even customize your own team with a robust roster of over 40 character classes!
Disgaea 7 comes with a number of features:
Character Classes: Disgaea 7 contains over 40 character classes, including four new additions: Maiko, Bandit, Zombie Maiden, and Big Eye.
Auto-Battle: Returning in Disgaea 7, once you clear a level, you can play through it again by engaging with enemies in auto-battles. This can help you gain additional experience while also saving time in your playthrough.
Online Ranked Battles: A first in the series, AI-driven ranked battles allow you to face off against other players online. The system creates optimal strategies based on your opponents’ movement patterns and the characteristics of the stage. Stacking victories will lead to an improved rating, while losing will hurt your standing.
Item Reincarnation: Similar to the character reincarnation mechanic in the previous Disgaea games, which also returns, you can now reincarnate items, transforming them into something completely different. The more you do so, the more powerful the item becomes!
Hell Mode: Some characters have a “Hell Gauge” that fills up during battle. Once it’s maxed out, they switch into “Hell Mode,” which boosts their stats and unlocks unique skills.
Sightseeing: Once you’ve brought peace to a region of Hinomoto, you can stop by for a visit. Get to know the inhabitants of Hinomoto as they return to their normal lives, with bonus dialogue and opportunities to recruit new companions (after you beat them in battle, of course).
Jumbification: Each character in Disgaea 7 can supersize themselves, growing in both size and strength, which boosts their stats and damage output. Be careful though, as enemies can also do the same!
Disgaea 7: Vows of the Virtueless comes out in the West for PS4 and PS5 this Fall. Will you be checking it out?
