Disgaea 6 will feature two different styles of counter abilities players can have characters equip. Famitsu provided a first look at this feature. This latest Disgaea 6 gameplay video highlights how retaliating will work, when character equip abilities, and how quickly players will be able to rack up massive amounts of damage with these two new skills. [Thanks, Famitsu!]
As mentioned before, there will be two types of Disgaea 6 counter abilities. The “Forced Counter” ability will force the targeted unit to counterattack up to twenty times. The “Preparation to Intercept” ability will always trigger a counterattack upon defending. The unit equipped with this ability has the opportunity to counter attack up to twenty times too.
