A wealth of new content for Disgaea 6: Definace of Destiny has been released. You can start with the new trailer, check out more screens and art here, and then read a ton of info on gameplay mechanics, characters, and more below.

■ Main Characters

Melodia (voiced by Kokoro Nanami)

A princess who dreams of wonderful love. She is eagerly anticipating her happily ever after. She loves to sing and always tries to do so when the opportunity arises.

Leader of the Rainbow Squadron Prism Rangers. Our hero who crossed dimensions. As the squadron’s first female leader, her goal is to restore their ratings.

Television World

■ Skill Shop: Special Skills and Evilities

“Evilities” are character-specific abilities that remain in effect as long as certain conditions are met. There are two types of Evilities: “Unique Evilities” that are specific to a character, and “Common Evilities” that can be swapped in and out. You can equip as many Common Evilities as your maximum cost allows, so swap them in and out according to your play style.

“Special Skills” consist of various skills such as attack and recovery that require you to spend SP in battle. Special Skills include character-specific skills that can only be used by a specific character, as well as magic that can be used by anyone.

Special Skill Spell Example: “Fire” – The first stage of fire-type magic that can deal damage with the power of fire. Special Skills can be upgraded at the Skill Shop (higher power, less SP cost, etc.), as can the range of magic-only skills.

Common Evility Example: “Fire Body” – Increases fire resistance by 25 percent and strengthens fire-based attacks. This is a low-cost Common Evility that anyone can learn.

Common Evility Example: “Zombie Revival” – Resurrects character on the Base Panel after death. (Can only be used once per stage.) While this is a Common Evility that only Zed can learn naturally, other characters can learn it by creating a Book of Secrets at the Skill Shop.

You can learn and strengthen Special Skills and Evilities at the Skill Shop at the base. While some Common Abilities can only be learned by specific characters naturally, other characters can learn those abilities by creating a Book of Secrets at the Skill Shop.

New details on Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny's characters, Auto and Repeat modes, experimental changes, and much more

This game is definitely trying some new things

As we shared earlier, Nippon Ichi hosted a gameplay feature for Disgaea 6 at TGS, and it included a ton of commentary on the game from the dev team. You can find a summary of the new details below.

- the strongest god of destruction, which protagonist Zet is trying to defeat, was actually just defeated by someone else
- no one knows who did it or how
- the game starts with a tutorial battle for Zet and Cerberos
- Zet has a hidden level, and very high stats
- enemies are all level 999 at this point
- Zet has a skill titled Thunder Rush that can one-shot an enemy with 4 million damage
- Zet also has a 3×3 AoE called Plasma Drive
- Zet, is named after the letter “Z” for zombie, while his little sister Beeko is named after the “bie” in zombie
- Princess Melodia is one of the game’s heroines, and is very important to the story
- Piyori is also an heroine, and she first appeared in Disgaea 1
- she’s appearing as a main character for the first time in Disgaea 6
- she has a skill named Nijidynamite, which is a parody of Super Hero Time, inspired by Kamen Rider, Super Sentai and more
- Majolaine is a Magical Girl that might be hiding a secret
- Disgaea 6 is filled with otaku culture references
- using 3D character models in battle allowed the development team to make the special attacks and skills much flashier
- they can now show the characters much closer, use multiple camera effects, etc.
- Disgaea 6 will be for both players who just want to enjoy the story, and those who want to grind
- the game is built in a way to introduce newcomer players to the joys of grinding
- the game includes an Auto Mode
- Disgaea 6 main story is built so once you finish it, your characters’ levels will be in the thousands
- this is to show newcomer players that it’s not that hard to grind, and how interesting and fun it is to deal so much damage
- the idea to make griding easier came from Disgaea Refine on mobile, where it was received quite well
- the game also includes a Repeat Mode
- if you activate both Auto Mode and Repeat Mode, once the map is cleared, it will automatically restart the map for grinding
- this could easily break the game balance for the main story, so they’re considering restricting Auto Mode and Repeat Mode
- you can set the speed of Auto Mode in the options, and it goes up to 32 times the normal speed
- the team is considering letting players go up to 64 times the normal game speed
- there might also be AI customization for Auto Mode
- this would have possible features like “focus on weaker enemies” or “prioritize opening treasure chests”
- the devs know some like spending countless hours grinding, but they need to accommodate those who don't have time
- all of the new features are considered experimental, and player feedback on these changes will impact the next game
