After the last trailer regarding plot and characters, Nippon Ichi Software revealed new information about ranked battles and a list of classi available in Disgaea 7.
For the first time in the series Disgaea, players will be able to face each other in online PvP clashes: they will have the possibility to form their own party with up to 10 units, which will face the opposing teams controlled by the AI. Each player will be able to set the behavior of their characters through the system Demonic Intelligence, thanks to which each unit can be instructed to act according to a pre-set set of actions, such as ‘Assault’ or ‘Support’. Furthermore, it will be possible to face a series of pre-built opposing teams, to be used as a test bed before measuring the other players. The outcome of each battle will cause players to gain (or lose) gods Points, with which they can climb the leaderboard and win prizes, such as virtual money or special items. Every week the ranking will be reset and the special rules of the battles modified, so as to allow each player to aim for the top of the leaderboard.
Among the classes and monsters confirmed so far there are some returns, such as Warrior, Dry e Prinnythe now iconic penguin mascot of the series, but also novelties, such as Thief e Giant eye. A first list, which will certainly be enriched and expanded as the release date approaches, can be consulted here in the meantime.
Disgaea 7 will be available in Japan for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 e Nintendo Switch on January 26, 2023. While waiting for an official release date for the rest of the world, not yet announced by the developers, we offer you the official trailer.
