While Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance will land in Europe on October 9, 2015 on PS4the American branch of Nippon Ichi Software recently decided to put online new details on the three new features of the combat system and some images to illustrate it.
The saga Disgaea has always worked with a loop system: you prepare, you fight and you enjoy a bit of story, all in a loop. Let’s take a closer look at the fighting segment.
As you can see in the image above, the fights in Disgaea 5 will have an air of déjà vu for players who are familiar with the license. However, the fifth opus will offer three new features to make things more interesting and add a little more challenge to your strategies. Overall, combat unfolds like this: position your team, choose your actions and defeat your enemies. To achieve this result, you will have to use a certain number of attacks. Here is a non-exhaustive list which also presents the three new attacks of Disgaea 5:
THE team attacks will be back in Disgaea 5 to help you tear your enemies to shreds. When allies fight near each other, they have a chance to team up when you use a normal attack and do more damage than usual.
THE alliance attacksa new feature, remain in the tradition of team attacks except that this time, the main characters of the game will be able to choose a specific ally with whom they will carry out a devastating attack.
THE revenge fashion is a new addition to the Disgaea combat system. It allows you to boost your character when its allies take damage or are defeated and unlocks a new ability called Overloads.
THE Overloads can only be used when your character is in revenge mode. Each Overloads has a specific number of special techniques demonstrated by small animations.
These three new types of attacks look interesting and can energize the gameplay and bring a little breath of fresh air. To better discover them, we let you view the images below.
