Disgaea 5 Shows How To Power Up Characters With Its Board Game

Recommended Videos

In addition to simply leveling up your characters in Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance, there’s an extra mini-game you can play to boost them up stats at a time. Nippon Ichi’s latest video shows us exactly how it works.



The video starts out with the tiny Overlord Zeroken telling Killia that he wants to become stronger, and asks how exactly he can do that. The protagonist then recommends the “Character World” feature for that.



To it simply, the Character World is basically a world that takes place deep inside a character’s heart. By doing different actions, you can unlock potential powers that are dormant within the character.


The world looks like a traditional Japanese Sugoroku-like board game, and it also shares similar rules. You start out by rolling a dice, and your character will advance according to the number you roll, and there will be various events depending on where you land.


Zeroken gives it a roll at the 1:28 mark, and he’s shown landing on a square that givces him a Res +3 stat. This is the basic idea of how you’ll strengthen your characters; however, there are squares with negative effects, so you’ll want to be careful.



Upon reaching the goal, you’ll be rewarded with numerous different stats to choose from, as shown in the above image. So even if you don’t get the stats you want in the Character World, clearing it will guarantee you a choice of the stat you’ve been meaning to raise.


Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance will release in Japan on March 26, 2015 for PlayStation 4, and in North America and Europe this fall.
