NIS America has shared with us some new information and screenshots for Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance.

Featured above as well as below, the new screenshots depict various battles in game, alongside new information for the game’s three new battle system features.

You can find the new screenshots and information below:

Disgaea‘s Core

Storyline -> Prepare -> Battle, and loop. The core loop of Disgaea is fairly simple, but this simple loops belies a ridiculous amount of depth that has seen the series, and its fans throug hthe years, of fu nand content. Let’s take a look at the battle segment of the game.


Position your team, choose your actions, and defeat your enemies.

Battles in Disgaea 5 have a familiar flow, but make use of many new systems to keep things both interesting and strategically challenging.

Team Attacks: Like Old Faithful, Team Attacks return in Disgaea 5 to help you turn your enemeis into mincemeat. When teammates are fighting near each other, they have a chance to team up when they perform a regular attack to mete out additional damage.

Alliance Attacks (New): Building on the idea of Team Attacks, the main characters of Disgaea 5 have access to a new attack system called Alliance Attacks which allows them to team up with a specific teammate to deal massive damage!

Revenge Mode (New): Another new addition to the battle mechanics of the Disgaea series, the Revenge Mode, allows you to power up your characters when their allies take damage or are defeated. Revenge Mode also unlocks powerful new abilities for your characters called Overloads.

Overloads (New): Each Overlord has a number of unique special skills with completely over-the-top, and awe-inspiring animations to assault your foes. These new attacks can only be used by a character who has entered Revenge Mode.

Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance is going to launch exclusively on PlayStation 4 in North America on October 6th, followed October 9th in Europe.

    I know I’m not the only one that misses the skill combo system from Disgaea 3, so why does Nippon Ichi treat it as that I am?

    Honestly, the revenge system isn’t selling me, but at least the characters could be fun.

    A couple of minor spacing issues in the Disgaea’s Core section. “throug hthe years, of fu nand content” and a spelling error in Team Attacks “enemeis”

    I’ll admit I didn’t pay much attention to details on the game when it was first coming out, so hearing about it now that it’s being translated it sounds rather fun.

    Doubt it as this game couldn’t be made on other platforms Ince it wasn’t powerful enough.
    Likely the huge number of sprites and stuff all going on at once needs alot of power
