    [Megathread] Disgaea 5 ヽ(´ー`)ノ

    Sweet! XD

    At Sony’s pre-TGS press conference today, Disgaea 5 was revealed. It will be coming to PlayStation 4 in 2015.

    Unfortunately, little else is known about Disgaea 5 at the present time. The game was confirmed to be in development as far back as early 2012, and many assumed it would ultimately be a PlayStation 3 or PlayStation Vita game, with NIS noting that it intended to continue focusing on those platforms.

    Disgaea 5 will be the first game in the core Disgaea series since Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten launched on PS3 in 2011, a game we really enjoyed. It recently migrated to PlayStation Vita in the form of Disgaea 4: A Promise Revisited; we hope to have a review of that up soon.

    In the meantime, we'll keep you updated with any further developments on Disgaea 5, including confirmation that it will eventually launch in the west.

    Disgaea 5’s story will have the theme of “revenge” and will also have more volume than previous Disgaea games. There will be new systems as well.
    The protagonist’s name is Kilia, a young demon boy who swears to get revenge against the demon emperor Void Dark. The heroine, named Seraphine, is a demon lord of the “Gorgeous Underworld,” and is the well-brought-up daughter of an upper-class family.
    There’s also Usalia, who is the demon lord of some place called “Rabbit Rabbit World,” and has been affected by some curse that makes her go violent unless she eats curry.
    The magazine report also has some quotes from Nippon Ichi president Sohei Niikawa, who stated ,“We thought about going multi-platform with PlayStation 3, but doing so would’ve made the PS3 the standard. Since we’re making it, I want to be able to offer something that could only be done with the PlayStation 4.”
    Another quote from Niikawa says: “The number of characters that can be displayed at once has vastly grown. On the PlayStation 3 it was limited to 10 characters shown in high definition, but the PlayStation 4 can display 100 characters.”.
    "When we're done, i want that cage...for....reasons."
    "Plus you folk have redheads. (sighs.) Redheads."

    I was so sure the main character was a tomboy. Shit. Seraphine sounds like Rozalin, which is good. I always liked her.

    The Story i believe
    The strongest and worst demon emperor, Void Dark… since his rise to power, he has devastated many Netherworlds, along with the help of his large, brutal, and heartless army known as Lost. It is rumored that they have over 10 billion soldiers, too.
    It seemed like no one could possibly stand against them, and it didn’t even seem like there existed someone bold enough to do so in the Netherworld…
    However, the Netherworlds are large. Demons that have held a grudge against Void Dark and his underlings have quietly began to stand up, in order to get revenge.
    The stage of Disgaea 5 is set in numerous Netherworlds, where demon lords of their own Netherworlds will gather together, to stand against the powerful Void Dark and his subordinates. However, here will be new battle and growth systems, in addition to additional rules which will be revealed in the near future. The above image gives us a look at one of the said features, with what looks to be a new “Revenge” status.

    I love me some Disgaea! One of the most underrated game series.

    Looks nice but I have some standards, one of which is not touching anything censored and Disgaea 4 was, so giving the 5th installment a pass.
    Capitalism, Ho!

    Only in Disgaea.

    Is it bad that I'm looking forward to see the random name generator for minions? I remember my friends getting gems like "Soup of the Day" and "8x11 printing paper".

    I just gotta get a PS4 before it comes out now...
    My shaman I guess if you want to see it or something.
    My main at heart, my paladin

    I'm here to post and be witty, and I'm all out of wit.

    During their Disgaea press event at Tokyo Game Show, Nippon Ichi Software announced fans will be able to play the Tokyo Game Show demo on a PlayStation 4 at home.

    The Disgaea 5 demo will be available on October 15. You’ll need 556 MB free on your hard drive to run it, which is just a small fraction of the PS4′s standard hard drive.

    Disgaea 5 comes out on March 26, 2015 in Japan. The game will also be released in the West at a later date.

    I WAS actually heavily considering importing Disgaea5 now that my kanji/reading comprehension is a lot better. I bought the JP version of Disgaea3 when it came out, but I was overwhelmed at the time. Small problem: I would have to buy a PS4 as well still

    But yes, I think they really need to break into the PC market with their games. It would allow them to cut out the retail channel costs, have a much larger market, remove the processing constraints of the consoles, and be a lot more variable in their pricing of games.

    Not an ideal situation but: If NIS does go under, I have to imagine SOME other publisher would snap them up. There is still a lot of value in the Disgaea franchise name IMHO, and NIS-style games in general.

    I think their biggest issue is a lack of innovation in successive games in the series. I've drawn up the basic combat systems, strategy, etc. for my own SRPG and been coding it in my spare time with Unity -- there is a lot they could be doing. Take a page from MMOs and spice up boss battles with various targeted and aoe moves, have the combat not be so binary, (Most combat in Disgaea is 1shot) maybe use destructible physics for blasting through walls, etc.

    That article really felt like a stab in the heart to me. I've been a huge fan of every NIS game that gets localized and reading this made me die inside a bit.

    Neptunia is Compile Heart. And NISA has a lot more going on than just porting NIS games, so they may be okay.
