Disgaea 5: New Features Detailed, DLC Outlined

Hey, dood! It’s been a wild ride fighting against the Lost in the Netherworlds lately, but soon the tide will change with your help when Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance comes out on October 6th on PS4!

Everyone’s out for revenge against Void Dark these days, especially Master Killia and Madam Seraphina, and we need all the buffs we can get. Thankfully, Madam Seraphina’s pocket Netherworld is packed with new features, such as the Curry Shop and Netherworld Editor that will help with temporary boosts.

The Curry Shop is a new facility on the base where you can create different types of curries, which will give the squad temporary effects that last about one battle. Most of these recipes will give boosts in stats, but not all are good! Some can have a negative effect and are even poisonous!

When your squad isn’t out fighting the good fight, you can deploy some of your recruits to explore the other Netherworlds through the Nether Research Squad. While they’re off researching the Netherworlds, they’ll be unlocking new worlds to visit, finding rare items in other worlds to bring back, and gaining experience for your squad members as they’re off exploring.

These new Netherworlds will sometimes have special world effects, such as Icic-Hell’s snowy world that lowers all characters’ fire resistance. But don’t fret — you can override these Netherworld effects with the Netherworld Editor! This new feature allows you to create new Netherworlds for other people to encounter and play, and if one of the worlds is summoned while you’re in a map, the summoned Netherworld effects will override the effects of the current world. That’s Prinny cool, right?

“But what about the items?” you ask. With the new Alchemist feature, you can have items created for you while you’re off to battle! Create a brand new item and add Innocents to power up each copy. Don’t have enough innocents for your plentiful supply of items? The Innocent Shop can help with that; this shop acts like a warehouse to hold all your precious Innocents while breeding new ones at the Innocent Farm out back. Sometimes if you leave two Innocents alone together at the Innocent Farm, a third will appear with more rare and powerful effects!

Still not enough content for you? Not to worry, NIS America will be releasing 5 batches of DLC which allow you to encounter the characters from Disgaea 3, Disgaea 4 and Disgaea D2 in various Netherworlds, as well as other games like La Pucelle! There will also be a season pass available and if you get all the DLC, you’ll unlock Pleinair as a playable character for free! Be sure to check out the Disgaea website for more details on the game and all the latest updates!

And that’s all I have left to report, dood! We’ll see you in the Netherworlds when your mission starts on October 6th, but until then… over and out!

    Any plans to bring Disgaea 5 to the Vita dood? :)

    • They already said no vita versions. They said it before the jp version came out.

    • Tiffany Chin

      At least that’s what the boss man says! But there’s an upside – similar to the VITA versions, Disgaea 5 will have unique ability skills for humanoids!

    • MakaiOokami

      From what they said it’s a RAM issue, that they are utilizing a lot of RAM for bigger battlefields, more enemies, etc… and there’s just a limitation to the 512MB of RAM the Vita has.

    • I was very sad due to my low salary package, i was worried because it was impossible to bear My all expenditure of life then my Step brother used to tell me about part time work on this site which i am sharing with you as a volunteer. Now i am earning $$$$ a lot from this site. its a best oppurtunity for students and labours to earn a lot of money .

  • Xx_3xpLoiT_xX

    It wont happen, they said the game will have too many enemies in one screen for the vita to handle it

  • cant wait to play this,fall season cant come soon enough because its going to be good with games like these,cheers!

      I can’t believe it’s EXACTLY two months away now. CRAZY!

  • Prinny Rule #1!
    You have to say ‘dood’ at the end of every sentence! Normally I would hacve to demote you back to rank one, but that would negatively impact the schedule of the game’s release, so I’ll let it slide this once! :)

    • Tiffany Chin
      Tiffany Chin

      Oh gosh… thanks dood!

    • MakaiOokami

      Yes yes, ignore that Big Sis Prinny do not say dood. Not saying dude is unacceptable and…

      *huff, huff*
      *slurp*

      Those who break basic and standard rules, may find themselves used as guinea pigs, in my new tests!

      *deep breathe*

      Forget what I said. You’re free to not use dood!

      (I really do need some new subjects)

  • I have a serious itch for a turn-based tactical/strategy RPG, and this looks to fill it! I have never played the Disgea series, but I’m thinking that this will be my first! It looks quite fun!

  • Already pre-ordered the special edition. Disgaea makes me happy.

  • can’t wait.

  • ike Sherry explained I am inspired that a mom can profit $6902 in 1 month on the internet

  • No Vita version, no buy…

  • earth_inheritor

    Just started getting into the series with number one. Was super happy to have the big sale thats on right now but cant afford to buy them all :(. So now I have 1 D2, 2 and the 2 prinny games.

    I really hope they do another big Disgaea sale in the future as i cant get them all this time :(.
    3 an 4 are such awesome prices right now too

    • Next month all 3 PS3 titles of Disgaea are being bundled into one game called the Triple Play Collection. I think it’s around 40 bucks incase you’re interested.

    • Tiffany Chin

      Actually, if you have a PS3, you can get the Disgaea Triple Collection, which is coming out September 15th. That one disc will include Disgaea 3, Disgaea 4, and Disgaea D2, for PlayStation 3 for $39.99 which you can pre-order from your favorite retailer now!

      I think it’s pretty comparable to the sale and plus its physical :D

  • TeamGreen615

    Disgaea 5 sale please

    • earth_inheritor

      Thanks DinoCap666 , but its the vita ones im looking for. 3 and 4. Both on for $16 which is fantastic but after a massive vet bill last week even that is out of the question for now.

      Maybe next time.

      As for TeamGreen615…the game isnt even out yet..why are you asking for a sale?

    • TeamGreen615

      It was a joke mate.

  • death_nation100

    Dood i love Japanese Curry i got a Japanese Curry restaurant not far from my house thanks god, anyway i’ll be uying this game :).

  • Is it going to be available for pre order on PSN any time soon?

  • quickfire123

    Pre-order the collectors edition. Does it bill you on that day, and will I get it on that day?

    • Tiffany Chin
      Tiffany Chin

      @quickfire123 it bills a week in advance so we can ship it to you and it arrive the day of release. Sometimes it even comes a day early! :o

  • american_36

    I played Disgaea 1 – 4 on my Vita and finished them, but D2 on the PS4 (altough I love the console itself and the characters even more) I just couldnt beat it. It just didnt feel right to play this game on a big screen (and I dont mean that to be insulting in any way), so I “watched” the game to at least get the story.

    This is at least MY reason I wont be able to buy this game, even though I love the franchise itself, so I’ll have to hold off and hope/pray there will be a portable version of it some day. Maybe it wont be on the Vita, cause there is already a “Vita 2” in developement? Cause I really cant buy the “too many enemies on screen for vita”.

    Oh well, sorry to bother anyone who didnt want to read this, but ended up doing it anyway. Bye xD

    • american_36

      edit: D2 on !!PS3!! of course! my bad..

    • Tiffany Chin
      Tiffany Chin

      @american_36 it’s less about too many enemies fitting visually on the screen as it is about the processing power. I totally understand being devoted to VITA, but from what we’ve heard, it won’t be able to be on VITA… sorry dood!

    • american_36

      Thanks for replying. It’s not even that I’m THAT big of a Vita supporter (even though I ended up buying almost any J-RPG ever released on it-.-‘ ). I simply couldnt skip buying it, cause there were so many gems (from my perspective), that I couldnt play anywhere else xD The other thing is, that I just cant play most strategy RPG’s on the big screen for an extended period of time.

      That said, I already made an exception for Disgaea D2 (and will of course buy it again, if it releases on Vita to conquer it myself one day), but for Disgaea 5 I think I found a work-around to be able to enjoy it AFTER ALL^^

      The answer is REMOTE PLAY^^ so I think I can still support you guys and still have it kinda my way with the game :)

      And about the game not being able to work on Vita I’ll just trust you on that. YOU are the developers after all and I’m just a gamer trying to figure things out by my logic xD

      Keep up the great work and have a nice day, doods!!

    • american_36

      God, now I’m getting excited again xD why didnt I think of that earlier >.<

  • Any chance of a D2 port to Vita, or did they already say no to that? At this point I’m about ready to trade my vita in for $20. Where are all the games? And I don’t mean indie’s.

    • I hope there’s a change of plans with regard to Vita. I played every Disgaea 1-4 on PSP and Vita and loved them all. These games are just perfect for a handheld (and, to be honest, not so great on a big HDTV).

  • Hi Tiffany,

    1) Do you know yet if NISA-chan (the “Maker” character who once represented Nippon Ichi in the Hyperdimension Neptunia franchise, but who has since been brought over to the DIsgaea series instead) will be made available in D5 – either in-game or as a DLC add-on?

    2) Speaking of NISA-chan, would it be possible to ask your colleagues at NIS Japan to allow her to return to future Nepgames, or are the state of relations between NIS and Idea Factory/Compile Heart at the point where such a thing would no longer be possible? (I gather that a number of former NIS Japan employees recently worked on Makai Shin Trillion, which was recently published for PS Vita by IF/CH over in Japan.)

    and

    3) Has NIS America been looking at any of the recent, or upcoming, NIS Japan games published on PS Vita – such as the recently-announced Yomawari – and considered any of them for a Western localization?

      @Nerroth, alrighty here we go:

      1) Do you know yet if NISA-chan (the “Maker” character who once represented Nippon Ichi in the Hyperdimension Neptunia franchise, but who has since been brought over to the DIsgaea series instead) will be made available in D5 – either in-game or as a DLC add-on?

      We’ll be announcing more about our DLC soon so keep an eye out for it! :)

      2) Speaking of NISA-chan, would it be possible to ask your colleagues at NIS Japan to allow her to return to future Nepgames, or are the state of relations between NIS and Idea Factory/Compile Heart at the point where such a thing would no longer be possible? (I gather that a number of former NIS Japan employees recently worked on Makai Shin Trillion, which was recently published for PS Vita by IF/CH over in Japan.)

      A number of employees like Nisa-chan very much so it would be great to have her in future games!

      3) Has NIS America been looking at any of the recent, or upcoming, NIS Japan games published on PS Vita – such as the recently-announced Yomawari – and considered any of them for a Western localization?

      We look at almost all of the titles that are published by NISJ; if we are localizing it, you’ll definitely hear about it!

    • Tiffany,

      Thank you for your reply.

      To clarify, I was wondering as much if NIS Japan and/or NIS America could agree with IF/CH and/or Idea Factory International about letting NISA-chan re-appear in future Hyperdimension Neptunia games (be they “mainline” titles like Victory II, or “spinoff” titles like the upcoming Neptunia/SeHa Girls crossover), as much as in games made by NIS themselves.

      As it happens, another brand-new “Maker” character – Tamsoft-chan – is being revealed this week; she’s set to be featured in Blanc’s upcoming spinoff game (which, through sheer lack of coincidence, is being developed by Tamsoft on IF/CH’s behalf). While there’s always room for more new characters to join the fold, it would be good to see NISA-chan jump back into the fray also.

      For that matter, it would also be nice of GUST would allow their own “Maker” character to go back to Gamindustri. (Gust-chan is being offered as a bonus character for the Japanese release of Yoru no Nai Kuni, but I’m not quite sure if that particular game setting is a good for for her character…)

    • I meant to say in that last line that I don’t think Yorukuni is a good fit for Gust-chan setting-wise…

      She’s arguably work better in, say, Atelier Sophie – though I’d think she’d work best of all if she could go back to the Neptunia series (the way that RED-chan was allowed to go back after her own lengthy absence).

      Unfortunately it’s something I really can’t answer. Not that it’s a subject that isn’t touchable, but it’s something that’s higher than my paygrade, haha.

      But in any case, the developers have been paying more attention to what fans want and have been taking in that feedback, so if you want NISA-chan to make it back, keep on supporting it!

  • Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssssssssss

  • Disgaea 5 is my main reasons for getting a PS4. would also like some disgaea 5 apparel.
    Any chance I will see a disgaea theme in the future?

    Do we know how much the season pass is available?

    • Tiffany Chin
      Tiffany Chin

      Sweet. and Yeah we’ll be rolling out with some more awesome Disgaea apparel soon! If you tune into our Twitch streams or follow us on FB or Twitter, we usually announce when we have new merch on our store :)

      As for the season pass I’ll get back to you about that soon!

  • I have already pre-ordered the collector’s edition from the NISA store.Any chance you could tell us the price of the season pass?

  • There will be digital download right? there’s no store near me sell ps4 games so i realy need to know if there will be a digital release i dont want to miss disgaea 5 like disgaea 3 and 4 and d2 T.T dood

  • davidstubbs

    I’m planning on getting the CE from NISA’s online store, shame to see the DLC is all paid, I’d like to see more games offer the gamer alternatives to unlock that content

  • american_36

    Yo, guys, for everyone CRAVING for a VITA Version of the game, I think I kinda found a solution.

    If you own a PS4 and a Vita you could just REMOTE PLAY the game and stream it from the PS4. Don’t know about you guys, but I myself use the Vita mostly at home anyway and with the “Rest” Option on the PS4, we should still be able to pause the game whenever we want^^

    I know it seems kinda obvious, that this is a possibility, but I really didnt think about it until after I got that reply from Tiffany.

    I wasnt able to enjoy Disgaea D2 on the Ps3 (even though I love the characters from this game the most), so I didnt want to buy the next disgaea (or any strategy RPG for that matter) on a console, but with remote play I think I can give it another shot.

    Just wanted to throw it out there as an option for those, who didnt think about that. Thanks for reading.

  • AWESOME cant wait to play this. time for me to catch up and play D3 and D4 on the Vita before D5 come out..

  • RubySniperRose

    The art style in this game looks super great! O:

    But the gameplay is probably too complicated for me, I’m not a strategist xDx

    • Tiffany Chin
      Tiffany Chin

      @ruby the art style is great and the mechanics can take a bit to get used to, but don’t let that stop you from trying it! This game allows all levels of players, it just depends on how much grinding you want to do and if anything, practice makes perfect right? :)

  • LurchSkywalker

    Geek Senses Tingling! I must have this now!

  • Any idea when we’ll get more info about the season pass?
