Nippon Ichi Software released a new trailer for Disgaea 5 which gives us an idea at how big battles can be. The Disgaea team also made new classes and monsters for the PlayStation 4 title.
Sage (left) is a class that specializes in attacking multiple targets with its Mass Blaster evilty that increases the amount of damage dealt by 10% multiplied by the number of targets. So, if you have an attack that hits four enemies, the Sage will do an additional 40% damage. Sages can use bow and canes as weapons. The Demon Fighter (right) class looks like a masked wrestler. He fights using axes or his fists plus has a special ability that allows him to throw a character without using his turn as long he doesn’t move.
New monsters include a group of Rabbit demons that have an ability called Tactical Advantage, which increases damage by 30% if you’re at a higher altitude. These monsters transform into swords when you use Magichange. Two-headed dragons are also new for Disgaea 5. These monsters can attack twice if they don’t move and also transform into a sword when magichange is used. The ghostly Cavalry Commander demon represents pride and can magichange into a spear. His ability, Immortal Body, reduces physical attack damage by 50%.
Disgaea 5 is slated for release on March 26, 2015 and scheduled to come in the West in fall 2015.
