Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance launched in Japan yesterday (after some last-minute gameplay videos). Nippon Ichi Software have now released new info and screenshots for the day-one and post-launch downloadable content that players will be able to purchase.

All the info below:

Set 1 (available at launch)

  • Scenario: Disgaea D2‘s Etna, Flonne, Laharl, and Sicily (500 yen) – Disgaea D2‘s characters enter the world of Disgaea 5. After clearing the scenario, the four characters will be available in the main game, complete with their own dedicated skills, and will be able to use some of Disgaea 5‘s new gameplay systems.
  • Character: Laharl-chan (300 yen) – a playable female version of Laharl.
  • Character: Angel Soldier (Woman) – a playable generic Angel Soldier (woman).

Set 2 (April 30)

  • Scenario: Disgaea 4‘s Valvatorez, Fenrich, and Vulcanus (500 yen)

Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance will be the first entry in the Disgaea series to offer a season pass as a method of buying DLC. The season pass will cost 4,000 yen, and those who purchase it (or buy all the downloadable content separately) will receive a bonus character, Pleinair. Reminiscent of EA’s Dragon Age games, players will be able to both purchase and access DLC content in the main hub, via a character who exists as an interface for the DLC.

Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance is due for North America and Europe this autumn. It’s unknown whether this DLC will be available for purchase when the game launches internationally.

    A half-ton of DLC announced before launch? Aaaaaand into the trash…

    It’s after release for the Japanese people, right?

    Disgaea games have so much content in them already, I can’t imagine why anyone would need to buy DLC in the first place.

    Plus, we don’t even know if the DLC will be available outside of Japan.

    I love Disgaea, but the DLC practices as of late is a major turn-off for me. Granted, I’m sure the base game has more than enough content in it. I guess they’re still pretty good about that. But announcing DLC before the game isn’t even out? You’re basically telling people you’ve deliberately decided to put that content aside as DLC. There’s no reason they couldn’t put them in the base game.

    Plus, there’s the whole issue with NISA screwing up localizations.

    I don’t think I’m gonna be buying this at launch. I’m gonna wait for a potential re-release on the Vita with all the DLC included, and hopefully any bugs ironed out. Although that hasn’t happened with D2 yet, I think it will soon enough.

    I don’t know. This could change things, but not so much.
