Disgaea 5 has recently been announced by Nippon Ichi Software as an upcoming PlayStation 4 title that will focus on the theme of “revenge” for its story. 4Gamer shares more on the game, including a first look at some of the characters and battlefield.
The strongest and worst demon emperor, Void Dark… since his rise to power, he has devastated many Netherworlds, along with the help of his large, brutal, and heartless army known as Lost. It is rumored that they have over 10 billion soldiers, too.
It seemed like no one could possibly stand against them, and it didn’t even seem like there existed someone bold enough to do so in the Netherworld…
However, the Netherworlds are large. Demons that have held a grudge against Void Dark and his underlings have quietly began to stand up, in order to get revenge.
The stage of Disgaea 5 is set in numerous Netherworlds, where demon lords of their own Netherworlds will gather together, to stand against the powerful Void Dark and his subordinates.
Here’s a look at some of the demon lords:
Kilia, the protagonist.
Seraphine, the demon lord of the Gorgeous Netherworld.
Usalia, the demon lord of the Rabbit Rabbit Netheworld.
You can read more about the characters and a few quotes from Nippon Ichi president Sohei Niikawa in our earlier report.
Doing over 100 million damage and getting to level 9999 isn’t anything new to the Disgaea series, and it won’t be changing anytime soon, as its overblown numbers will be present in Disgaea 5.
However, here will be new battle and growth systems, in addition to additional rules which will be revealed in the near future. The above image gives us a look at one of the said features, with what looks to be a new “Revenge” status.
Disgaea 5 is expected to release in Japan sometime in Spring 2015 for PlayStation 4.
