From Boltrend Games, a team known for their RPGs, comes a new version of Nippon Ichi Software’s excellent Disgaea franchise, Disgaea RPG. This represents the sixth in the Disgaea series. A turn-based title, based on the anime and RPG series, sees the return of Prince Lahari, Angel Fionne, and Vassal Etna. They go on an all-new adventure filled with both joy and sadness while travelling Earth and the Netherworld. Help them pass the Netherworld with care, as everyone’s moral compasses are known to be skewed.
Original stories and music join the colorful backgrounds and unique characters throughout the various levels of the game. Attack and throw enemies with movements both strategic and humorous using an over-the-top battle system in-between cutscenes. Disgaea RPG appears to be a faithful continuation of the anime and previous games. Though it follows the terrible Asian media trend of childlike characters in skimpy outfits that leaves little to the imagination. Currently, it’s only available in Canada, Australia, Brazil, and the Philippines, so no spoilers please. Other countries will follow in the summer of 2021. If it’s anything like the previous games, it will be well worth the wait.
