The newest edition to the Disgaea series Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance, is making its way to PS4 later this year to fill the gap in PlayStation Exclusives for this fall.
Japanese Role Playing Games have often found a home on PlayStation consoles, which is very true for the Disgaea series which has predominantly been exclusive to Sony consoles. Disgaea is a Japanese tactical role-playing series, which is known for having complex gameplay mechanics and often ridiculous stats for individual characters.
Story wise, the Disgaea 5 plot revolves around the theme of revenge, with characters actively seeking it and revenge being part of some new game mechanics to this edition. Killia, the lead protagonist, is a young demon who aims to end the reign of an Overload called the ‘Dark Void’, who is enslaving numerous Netherworlds within the game.
Players will lead Killia and an army of rebels against the Dark Void on a path of vengeance with the usual quirky and strange humor the franchise is well-known for.
On the NIS America store page you can find more details and features about the game. Here are some of the features you can expect to see later this year in Disgaea 5:
New to the Disgaea series, your relationship with your teammates influences a new battle system called “Alliance Attack.” These special moves are only available to main characters and only when their relationships are appropriately aligned.
A familiar feature for the Disgaea faithful, this system lets you choose from over 40 races and jobs, and identify new party members with the exact traits you desire.
A game about vengeance wouldn’t be complete without a character stat boosting system based on revenge, would it? The Revenge Mode empowers your characters with bonus stats when they’ve become fed up of their allies being beat on.
