Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance coming to Australia and New Zealand on PlayStation 4 in 2015!
Earlier today, NIS America announced that Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance will be arriving in Australia and New Zealand some time this year, exclusively for the PlayStation 4. This comes from the official press release:
“The sixth home console entry to the legendary Disgaea series tells a tale of revenge, and of rebellion. As a new and terrible Overlord named Void Dark seeks to enslave the countless Netherworlds, one young demon has stood to end his reign—Killia. In Disgaea 5, lead Killia and his tenacious army of rebels on their dark and dangerous path to vengeance. Filled with more over-the-top action and hilarious writing than ever before, Disgaea 5’s damage numbers are surely headed for the record books.
Alliance Attacks: 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.
Recruitment: A familiar feature for Disgaea faithful, this system lets you choose from over 40 races and jobs, and identify new party members with the exact traits you desire.
Revenge Mode: 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.
Explore the Netherworlds: While previous games in the series have shown a glimpse of the darkness that is the Netherworlds, Disgaea 5 takes you to a myriad of those dark lands.
Definitely over 9,000: In true Disgaea fashion, Disgaea 5 harnesses the power of the PlayStation®4 to deliver battles with a ridiculous number of enemies and outrageous damage.
Editor’s Note: Disgaea has always been one of my favourite SRPG franchises, second only to NIS’ Makai Kingdom: Chronicles of the Sacred Tome. It would have been great if the series was released on PC and/or Xbox One as well, though I’m grateful that Aussies will get their hands on Disgaea 5 period. If you’re yearning for a game that is challenging and offers hundred of hours worth of gameplay, keep your eyes on this one.
