Today Nippon Ichi Software released a new trailer of the upcoming strategy JRPG Makai Senki Disgaea 7.
The trailer focuses on Wei-Yasu, one of the playable characters that we'll be able to bring along in the turn-based battles of the game.
He's a timid, lazy, and narcissistic general of the army of the shogunate. He's a womanizer and pays a lot of money to be entertained every day at banquets by the local Maiko. He also wields one of the seven weapons of the origins, so he has some talent, despite his antics.
Disgaea 7 (Titled "Makai Senki Disgaea 7" in Japanese) is the latest game of the popular franchise of over-the-top strategy JRPGs Disgaea. It'll release in Japan for PS5, PS4, and Nintendo Switch on January 26, 2023. A demo in Japanese is currently available on local digital stores if you'd like to give the game a try.
Despite the fact that the Japanese release is coming close, we don't yet have news about an English localization, albeit it'd be surprising if NIS America (which is the western arm of Nippon Ichi Software itself, hence the acronym) didn't bring this west at some point relatively soon.
The game is set in a netherworld inspired by feudal Japan where Bushido has been stolen. Fuji and Piririka travel the land in search of legendary weapons to restore the status quo. The game includes the traditional gameplay of the series and enhances it with even more destructive techniques, including the ability to turn into giants and wreak havoc on the battlefield.
