NIS Details a New Gigantic Gameplay Mechanic in Disgaea 7

Disgaea 7 Dodeka MAX

Developer Nippon Ichi Software released a video featuring new gameplay mechanics in the upcoming Disgaea 7. The Dodeka MAX system allows players to turn one of their units into a giant.

The Dodeka MAX system allows players to transform one of their units into a gigantic version of itself. This unit fights against the enemy forces from outside the stage, granting them massive range and power. But players ought to be careful, as enemy units can also transform, allowing them to face your transformed unit. This system also introduces “Dobilities,” passive abilities that benefit the entire party and can turn the tide of battle.

Dodeka MAX was introduced in “Disgaea Private School – Second Term,” the second entry in a series of videos delving deeper into the upcoming Disgaea 7. The name of this mechanic originates from a double pun on the Japanese words for “ballista” (do) and “demon” (ma), mixed with the word “deka” and “max,” terms utilized to describe gargantuan size.

Disgaea 7 releases in Japan on January 26, 2023 for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and the Nintendo Switch. We still don’t know when Disgaea 7 is releasing outside of Japan. More information will appear in the future.
