Disgaea 6 will be the latest installment in the Disgaea series, a tactical role-playing video game series that has been around for over a decade. It follows the story of a zombie named Zed that fights alongside denizens of the Netherworld to restore order in the underworld while being attacked by the God of Destruction himself.
About the game
Disgaea 6, is set to release globally on June 29, 2021, for Nintendo Switch. The game will feature a new cast of characters, with an all-new story and setting, a new gameplay mechanic, and various customizable settings.
The core gameplay of Disgaea 6 is a turn-based strategy RPG. Just like in the older version of the franchise, players need to train their characters to get levels in order to clear higher stages.
Mechanics like lift, character creation, specials, and team attacks are still present.
Over the course of the game, there will be many dialogue scenes that feature both allies and enemies. However, in the battles, enemies can be seen in a formation before the battle, and in the formation, there will be a meter on the side.
Disgaea 6 introduced new systems like:
Super Reincarnation – a spell that supersedes even death, to reincarnate into another Netherworld when he’s defeated by the God of Destruction. Super Reincarnation allows a unit to re-class into a higher tier class, but can no longer gain levels from the previous class
Karma – you can use the Karma you have collected to improve your stats and skills, including stats that don’t usually increase, such as your counter attacks and movement!
Auto-repeat system – automatically repeats the same stage over and over! This system is good when grinding exp and HL.
Auto-Battle – currently present in the Disgaea RPG mobile game. Auto-Battle is a new function that lets your characters battle for you!
High-Speed Modes – speeds up the gameplay, which is perfect for busy gamers but still wants to grind their characters.
Juice Bar – a new system that allows you to share EXP with allies who weren’t in battle! You can also share Mana, which is needed for various functions at the base, as well as Extracts, which are used to increase stats.
D-Merits – a function that gives you benchmarks to efficiently improve your characters during the game.
According to the official website, Disgaea 6 story is:
Zed is a boastful zombie who wallows on the lowest rung on the Netherworld ladder alongside his sister Bieko. When a God of Destruction threatens their way of (un)life, Zed must harness his unique ability of Super Reincarnation to stand against the approaching menace. Along the way, he will unite with twisted and colorful denizens of different Netherworlds, face challenges around and within, and see if even an undying hooligan like himself can defy the odds!
Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny unites a grim yet touching story with insane tactical combat while introducing gameplay elements never before seen in previous installments. As a result, new and returning players alike can craft a truly memorable and unique journey through the Netherworlds. Bring the pain in battle with special attacks and support from a plethora of ally units. Customizable settings such as Auto, Retry, and Replay allow both hardcore and casual players to fight their own way. And should things take a terrible turn, use Super Reincarnation to rejoin the fight and keep trying until you succeed. This truly is a Netherworld fit for everyone!
Disgaea franchise is always known to have lots of characters with deep storylines. In Disgaea 6, the main character is Zed but you can still see familiar characters like Misedor, Melodia, Laharl, Etna, and Flonne.
