Disgaea 7 Announced
Developer Nippon Ichi Software has announced the latest entry in its long-running, Netherworld-set strategy RPG series. Disgaea 7 will release in Japan on January 26, 2023 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. The announcement trailer and screenshots for Disgaea 7 can be seen below.
Disgaea 7 will return players to the Netherworld, this time taking them to the Hinomoto Netherworld Cluster, which is inspired by Japanese culture. The game will follow wandering demons named Fuji and Piririka. Fuji is a poor, lazy samurai who hates human emotions, and coughs up blood if he accidentally experiences emotions such as love and friendship. Piririka is a naive CEO from a Netherworld company who is a Hinomoto otaku.
Since its creation, the Disgaea series has been known for its over-the-top damage numbers and characters, with each entry adding new features. Disgaea 7 will introduce a new rule-breaking system known as Dodeka MAX, which enlarges characters into giants that tower over stages. Beyond reincarnating characters, players will also be able to reincarnate items, which adds new mechanics and possibilities for customization. There will also be Ranked Battles where players will compete against others online. Disgaea 7 will also include 45 generic character classes, the most so far in the series.
Disgaea 7 will have in-game bonuses included in first-print copies, as well as limited and collector’s editions available for purchase. Currently, there is no news on a western release.
