If you love an in infinite level of depth, quirky characters, and an over-the-top anime presentation, then be sure to mark your calendars for this Oct. 6. Disgaea 5: Alliance and Vengeance will be released for the PlayStation 4 and of course it will come with a Launch Day Edition.
The added content amounts to an art book, a special collector’s case, and the soundtrack on CD. It’s your call if you want to pick that up on day 1. The best thing about these small, quirky Japanese games though is that they tend to be much more reliable at launch than AAA games, meaning your pre-order isn’t as big of a gamble.
Disgaea 5 doesn’t disappoint in the jokes or art department, but it does take things in a new, darker direction. With a story centered on taking revenge on a powerful new Demon Emperor named Void Dark, this title follows our dark, self-assured hero, Killia, and his Overlord allies on their dark and dangerous path to vengeance.
Looks pretty cool, but I don’t have nearly the time to sit in front of a TV and sink 200+ hours into a Disagaea game like I did back in high school. I’d say wait for a Vita version since all the others went handheld eventually, but NipponIchi says that that this will not happen with Disgaea 5. Despite its simplistic, sprite based graphics, it uses the PlayStation 4’s power to display hundreds of characters at a time.
I’ll check it out and let you know what I think. People who are already fans probably won’t be needing my opinion, though. Disgaea 5: Alliance and Vengeance launches on Oct. 6 for the PlayStation 4.
