▍Disgaea 7’s Main Characters
As is tradition in Disgaea, the series features a new cast of characters in an entirely new world. With several characters inspired by Japanese myths and Onis, lets check out the new main characters among over 45 playable characters and classes in the game!
■ Fuji – CV: Kaito Ishikawa
A Samurai who is both poor, but loves money. He is always lazy and is deathly allergic to human sentimentality, including emotions like love. So much so that if someone even tries showering him in affection, he coughs up blood!
■ Piririka – CV: Hiyori Nitta
The super-naive Hinomoto otaku. This unassuming girl is actually the CEO from another Netherworld! Being sheltered for all of her life, Piririka experienced the world through manga and anime, and went to Hinomoto to experience that kind of life firsthand! But it’s not quite how she imagined it…
■ Ao – CV: Riona Imaizumi
An emotionally unhinged girl who claims that Fuji is her father!
■ Wey-Yasu – CV: Takuma Terashima
The main antagonist of this story, the corrupt and incompetent shogun.
■ Seefour – CV: Rina Kitagawa
Robin-hood by night, explosive maniac by thief, Seefour steals for the poor but her love of explosions doesn’t help her be as quiet as she’d like!
■ Suisen – CV: Maki Kawase
A humanoid weapon that can seemingly see into the future…
■ Higan Zesshousai – CV: Yui Kondou
The world’s strongest swordswoman! Too bad all of the swords she would like to wield break instantly in her hands…
▍Dodeka MAX Out Your Characters!
This time, the series’ crazy mechanic is the Dodeka MAX Mode! Enemies and players in Disgaea 7 can now be enlarged to such a ridiculous size, that they’ll even break the map’s boundaries! Being Dodeka MAX allows you to take out multiple enemies in a single swing, while also opening giant treasure boxes in the map, and give you a chance against Dodeka MAX’ed enemies!
▍Strengthen Characters and Items With Reincarnation!
Tired of old equipment not being as powerful? Want to Turn a spear into pancakes? You can do that now with Disgaea 7’s new reincarnation system! This unique system allows you to revive weapons and characters, by changing their original form into something completely new.
You can transfer weapon skills and properties onto another, breathing new life into a weapon that would have otherwise been irrelevant at later points in the game. Even Lv0 weapons can be made to deal ridiculous amounts of damage!
Characters can also be reincarnated to change their class while retaining their old properties. Want a mage to absolutely evaporate someone with their bare hands? Why not?!
▍Online AI Ranking Battles
It’s a first for the series, Ranked batles! You can now set up a party of characters to do battle against other players’ teams, using this new AI battle system. Don’t worry if you think your team won’t be as intelligent as you’d like, as you can even set several sub-routines and what skills you want them to execute, along with what situations you want them to do it in to help maximize your chances of winning!
Maybe you want your character to heal when someone’s below 99% HP, or perform a buff when surrounded, the possibilities are endless, and if you prefer a simpler AI behavior, there are settings for that too, with a preview of their basic strategy, and you can modify that preset to your liking so you don’t have to start from scratch!
