After waking up in the middle of some warehouse, Joe and Shiina come across a corpse of a woman in white. After being spotted by a detective, the two make a run for it and mark the start of an unexpected adventure. 5pb introduces Disorder 6’s two protagonists and their friends, along with a pair of detectives who relentlessly chase them down.

 

Joe

Joe is a young man who is bound by cuffs to Shiina. He has no recollection of anything that has happened prior to his awakening at the warehouse. He lacks will power and is always being pulled around by a much more strong-minded Shiina.

 

Shiina

 

Shiina is the mysterious girl who is cuffed to Joe. Apart from some fragmented memories, she has no recollection, similar to Joe, and doesn’t exactly know who he is, aside from his name. However, her feelings of love for him are still present. She has a mature personality, but she occasionally confuses Joe by doing and saying things that are completely out of character.

 

Hinako

 

Hinako is the former leader of the “team”. Due to circumstances surrounding a certain incident, she has joined forces with Joe and Shiina. She has close friends by the name of Tatsu, Yasu and Rumi. Hinako is somewhat regarded as a boss figure in the local area.

 

Tatsu

 

One of Hinako’s close friends. He quit the team but still acts as an underling to Hinako and follows her around. Tatsu is a simple and frivolous character, but whenever Hinako isn’t around, he shows a more timid and weaker side.

 

Yasu

 

Similar to Tatsu, he quit the team but remains close to Hinako. He’s a cool, calm and collected character who is often unfazed by anything. He’s very intelligent and wouldn’t hesitate to run his mouth against Tatsu or Hinako when he feels the need.

 

Rumi

 

Rumi is one of Hinako’s three closest friends. She’s a bizarre delinquent who is considered a bit foolish, fickle, lonely and indecisive. Rumi is full of emotions and is never shy around others.

 

Kobayakawa

 

Kobayakawa is a female detective who is affiliated with the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department. She has a strong sense of justice, and would do anything to get her job done. Due to her personality, she stands out among the other detectives at the police station. After discovering a dead body at the factory warehouse, she’s been persistently tracking down Joe and Shiina as potential witnesses to the crime.

 

Date

 

2013-05-07_010005

Date is a young detective who is currently majoring in criminal psychology. He has joined forces with Kobayakawa in tracking down Joe and Shiina as potential witnesses. He is there to keep an eye on Kobayakawa, who can sometimes let her passionate sense of justice get the best of her.

 

Disorder 6, will be coming out on August 22nd for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The standard version of the game will cost 7,140 yen while a limited edition has also been announced for 9,240 yen. Details of the limited edition have not been shared yet.

    I thought it was Maka and Soul at first.

    • Romored

      My thoughts exactly! XD

  • Brion Valkerion

    Interesting premise and character design for it… aside for the male lead. Needs to be a bit more mature looking imo, looks really out of place next to the girl/cast.

    • komiko12

      I think it is because they want the player to believe that even if they feel that they themselves are generic or bland, unexpected things can still happen to them?

    • JohnNiles

      Would be funny if he got handcuffed to a “coyote ugly” girl instead.

  • komiko12

    Since Shiina is the only one who remembers beings in love with the male, it is safe to assume that she is the one who put the handcuffs as an act of stalker-ish love.

    • JohnNiles

      You mean “deep love”.

    • Kevin Schwarz

      Maybe she is faking the amnesia just to be with him.

    Hopefully this will be made into an anime soon =^_^=

    • DyLaN

      I’m OK with tht. But since D15 still haven’t got an anime……

      • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

        True lol “Sigh”

        • DyLaN

          There a manga of it though. AFAIK, its still haven’t been scanlated to eng. But base on the released chp, its practically Groundhog Day/Higurashi + The Island.

  • LegendaryLos

    I’m really tired and read the title as Disgaea 6. I need to go to sleep.

    • Crevox

      I did that this time and the last time they posted an article on this.

  • JohnNiles

    Amnesiac couple? Why stop there? Amnesia for everyone!

    • neocatzon

      That will be hilarious if everyone amnesic again after a few chapter and made a new love among themselves. The end game will be full of confusing recollections. Joke aside, the police dispatch Date, a criminal psychologist, it’s interesting they assume their target have a hint of psychopathology.

      • Kevin Schwarz

        Also, it has to be always amnesia. There are two kinds of amnesia, and this one where you forget past things from this point backwards is the less common. I mean it’s so very weird and it won’t happen unless there is something bad in the brain or an almost mortal hit on the head…

        • neocatzon

          Anterograde amnesia. If that happens i don’t know how we save the game or even progress the story XD.

  • FakkuDesu

    Would have really prefered if the protagonist wasn’t a weak wimp as implied by the description, i’m sure it’s just as a big turn off for most people as it is for me, the glasses guy would do a much better job and would certainly be liked as a protagonist, IMO.

    meh, i’m trying it when it comes out anyways.

  • Nicholas Yee

    Dips on me calling Date as the bad guy!

  • Pythia Brixham

    Date committed the murder, I’ve seen this on TV before.

  • DyLaN

    I don’t trust Rumi. I blame a certain ending in 999.

    • Lemon

      I know what you mean. I’m hoping the twist will be more unexpected than the killer or villain being one of the 2 main protagonists…

    Dunamis’s art uh?, im so making Rumi my waifu, anyways knowing fromw here this is coming, story is going to be crazy

  • Aristides

    … I wish I could read Jap… Its a shame that living in the west has deprived me of one of my favorite game genres….

  • Zoozbuh

    …*sigh* YET another 5pb masterpiece that will probably never be localised. Character designs look great. And lol gotta love the totes original amnesia theme (Y) although it depends on what they do with it.

    Is there any hope that we get this localized T__T?
