Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance is mostly done and will be out sooner than you think, Spring 2015 to be exact.
Nippon Ichi Software has already begun the press tour, and Famitsu gives us a look into the game and gives us a great understanding of what to expect from this new title.
The thing that excites me personally is that despite being on the PS4, the game will retain its 2D sprite look. I don’t think we had any reason to think otherwise, but you never know if Sony would have decided to push that all PS4 games must push technology and look next gen. The game looks fantastic by the way and the sprites shine.
Aside from the screenshots NIS also detailed who the main group of characters would be in this new installment.
Kiria (voiced by Mamoru Miyano). A demon sporting sharp eyes and a long scarf, he harbors power that rivals that of a proper Overlord in his body, but is nonetheless an aloof warrior. Due to events in his past, he has a personal grudge against Void Dark and sets out traveling around the Netherworlds to get his revenge.
Seraphine (voiced by Sarah Emi Bridcutt), meanwhile, is a super wealthy Overlord from the Gorgeous Netherworld. Blessed with beauty and good proportions that convey her quality upbringing, she has no fear of The Lost and is all too happy to take them on, but is rebelling her parents’ wishes to get into a political marriage, making her a runaway of sorts despite her title.
Usalia (voiced by Satomi Akesaka) is a girl cursed with going beserk if she doesn’t eat curry. She’s the heiress apparent in the Rabbit Underworld, where demons that don’t like fighting gather, but is nonetheless being ravaged by Void Dark. She has a giant yellow Prinny that tags along with her, which she rides on and fights with during combat.
The game also seems to be introducing a new ability called REVENGE!! that seems to involve the prerequisite of fellow party members dying in which surviving members will get a stat boost. The requirements for this new system are unknown at the time.
Famitsu details that the game will take you across multiple netherworlds, gathering up an army of overlords from those netherworlds to face off against “Void Dark” who is dubbed the “strongest evil” and is terrorizing netherworlds far and wide.
