Nippon Ichi Software America was recently excited to share new details and screens for their upcoming strategy RPG, Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance. These screens show off three new systems that you will utilize during battle: Alliance Attacks, Revenge Mode, and Overloads.
First up are the Alliance Attacks. These build upon the idea of Team Attacks, granting the main characters of Disgaea 5 access to the new system known as Alliance Attacks and allowing them to team up with specific teammates in order to dish out massive damage to their foes.
Revenge Mode is the second new addition we’ll speak of. This new addition to Disgaea’s battle mechanics allows you to power up your characters whenever their allies take damage or are defeated. This new mode will unlock powerful new abilities for your characters to utilize, known as Overloads.
Overloads, the third new mechanic, come in a variety of types, with each Overlord having a number of unique special skills. These special skills feature completely over-the-top and awe-inspiring animations as they wreak havoc upon their foes. Of course, to utilize these powerful skills, you’ll need to have entered Revenge Mode first.
Gamers in North America will be able to enjoy these new features when Disgaea 5 goes live both physically and digitally on the PlayStation 4 come October 6, 2015. European gamers will, unfortunately, have to wait a bit longer, as the title isn’t scheduled to release there until October 9, 2015.
