Nippon Ichi Software shared a new video for Disgaea 7 video that reintroduces the strategy RPG franchise.
The first in their new “Private Disgaea Academy” video series features Professor Archer as he gives a nice overview of the Disgaea series.
Here’s a rundown on the game, plus the new video:
The stage is set for a Japanese-style demon world! With bushido in your hearts, slay the feckless Makuhari corruption!
A struggling samurai and an otaku girl! The uneven duo will take back the Japanese Demon Realm! The “Makai Senki Disgaea” series is a simulation RPG set in the unorthodox “Makai,” a world populated by demons, angels, and heroes!
In the latest title in the series, Disgaea 7, set in the Japanese-style demon world of “Hinomoto Makai Gun”, a stray samurai named “Fuji” and a girl named “Piriririka” who is a Hinomoto nerd, fight to “Overthrow the Great Unholy Makufu” and take back the devastated demon world of Hinomoto from the hands of invaders! The system is based on the traditional gameplay of the series.
In addition to the series’ traditional challenging elements, the game also features a new system that is even more powerful and destructive to common sense!
We present to you the all-new Disgaea 7!
Characters become super-sized!
The overwhelming sense of exhilaration of knocking down enemies with damage of an order of magnitude!
The “Makai Gun of Japan”! The “Grudge Spring Demon Realm” where the souls of grudge spirits gush out as hot springs, the “Sardine Demon Realm” that exists inside the body of a super-duper space sardine, the “Dead Land Demon Realm” with its fascinating maelstrom that has turned many demons into sea debris, etc.
In this world, which is made up of many unique demon worlds, many of the inhabitants follow the “Bushido,” a belief that is not unlike that of demons.
But that was a long time ago. With the arrival of the Kaijikai Army led by Demon Admiral Opener, Hinomoto has changed.
The demons living in Hinomoto now live according to the “Hinomoto Destroy Laws” established by Opener.
The Hinomoto Destroy Laws. One, Destroy bushido, etc. Second, anyone who complains about salaries or taxes is to be killed. Three, no thanks to friendship and love.
Please flatter the strong and frustrate the weak. 5. Fighting is the flower of the demon world, so please fight more and more. Those who disobey the above articles will all be punished with the Harakiri.
Then, the noble warriors were eliminated from Japan. This is a story about a girl who yearns for bushido in a world that has lost its pride. A girl who yearns for bushido and a young man who hates it. They fight together for their mutual beliefs.
The encounter between a warrior who hates humanity and a misunderstood otaku changes Japan.
