NIS Introduces Disgaea 7 Maiko and Thief Classes, Details Dodeka Max and PvP Systems

NIS revealed a bit more about Disgaea 7, the latest entry in the franchise. A recent update to the game’s official site and details covered in the Sega/Atlus TGS 2022 broadcast revealed new information regarding new systems, classes, and characters.

The game takes place in a more explicitly stylized setting after Japan, the “Hinomoto Netherworld”, where various unique Netherworld dimensions are grouped together (such as a Hot Spring Netherworld and a Sardine Netherworld). But Hinomoto has changed. The arrival of the Demon Admiral Opener and his army left the Hinomoto without his “Bushido”. Fuji, a lone warrior who hates Bushido, and Piririka, a Bushido nerd, must fight together to unite the Seven Original Blades and restore the pride of the land.

In addition to ten Disgaea detailed character classes, two more have been added: female Maiko and male thief.

The Maiko character class can charm opponents and deal extra damage to male units. As for the thief, he plays similarly to the existing female version. He can steal treasures and find rare items in chests.

The item reincarnation system will be new to Disgaea 7. There are no limits to the items you can reincarnate. For example, you can turn a healing item into a sword. You can also move weapon-exclusive skills to new types. You can reincarnate a sword from a spear and let it keep a spear motion. As with how the reincarnation system works for characters, the more you reincarnate, the stronger the item becomes.

The second new system of Disgaea 7 is Dodeka Max. Characters get so big they literally can’t fit on the map. Their reach will extend across the entire map. Also, since their attack becomes an AoE move, they can hit multiple enemies with one normal attack. You will only be able to open giant treasure chests with a Dodeka Max character.

Each character will have a field effect called “Dobility”. While the character is in Dodeka Max mode, all characters on the field will be able to use this passive Dobility. Some doabilities include “Heal HP by 20% at the end of each turn” or “Increase DMG by 20%”. There can be four Dodeka Maxed characters on the field at a time.

Although this is not a new system, Disgaea 7 will implement ranked matches for the first time. It won’t be a live simultaneous PvP system though. Instead, it is asymmetrical. You’ll create a team and set the different AI behaviors for the characters, then others can challenge you whenever they want. Stages and rules will change after a set period of time. For example, there may be a time when you can only put male characters in your ranked party. You will get points based on your performance and you can spend them in the rank shop.

Disgaea 7 will be released on January 26, 2023 in Japan on PS4, PS5 and Nintendo Switch. Global release plans have yet to be announced. Those who are at TGS 2022 right now can play a demo of Disgaea 7 at the Sega booth.
