Japan’s best software announced Makai Senki Disgaea 7 on August 23. Scheduled to be released on January 26, 2023. The corresponding platform is Nintendo Switch/PlayStation 4/PlayStation 5. Prior to this announcement, a press conference to announce new information was held at a facility that was conscious of the peace of a certain place in Tokyo. The sports were Souhei Shinkawa (resigned from the president on August 18), the former President and CEO of Japan, and Shunsuke Mino Hane, the director of the Makai Senki Disgaea 7. What was revealed about this work, which is the title of the 20th anniversary of the series? In this article, we will deliver the pattern. The conference was held on August 5, 2022.
This time Disgaia is a Japanese style and dreaded dread
The first major topic at the conference was a briefing session that can be announced at the current stage of Makai Senki Disgaea 7. The briefing was led by Shunsuke Mino Hane, the director of this work. Minowa joined Japan’s best software as one of the reasons for being a Makai Senki Disgaea series fan. His favorite general-purpose characters are magic swordsman and magician woman. In the past, he has been related to Makai Senki 4 Return and Makai Senki Disgaea 5 as a programmer. He has also experienced overseas expansion. According to him, I want to make the best Disgaea because I’m a fan of fans.
The stage of Makai Senki Disgaea 7 is the magic world that resembles a sum. A story that regains Hino’s soul is depicted by the uneven combination of Hanju samurai Fuji who is a gold deceased and a rich nerd girl Pirika. It has been announced that many cosmos will appear as key characters of the work. Until now, Makai-imagined Makai appeared in the series, but it was not blessed with emphasis. According to Minowa, the latest work has developed a story about walking around various worlds, and this time it adopted a style focused on one magic world.
The new system in the Makai Senki Disgaea 7 was first announced. This means that by placing dreaded units outside the field, different effects for each unit can be activated throughout the field. It is an easy-to-understand and strong system for beginners. At the conference, as a concrete example, the ability to attack the entire field, such as granting all the fields in the field the characteristics of Prinny’s abilities, exploding when throwing. Naturally, Dan-Dekax is also used by enemies, but it is basically used by enemies, but this is a format. Therefore, in order to repain the field effect, it seems that there is also a system that puts out dreaded units and performs dynamic battles outside the board.
The next announcement was the revival of weapon skills and the implementation of Item Reincarnation. Weapon skill is a powerful command that can be learned by continuing to use several kinds of weapons. In the previous work, it was an omitted element, but it was revived under the request of the fans. The further reinforcement element item reincarnation is implemented according to this. By reincarnating the enhanced items (terms that mean a level reset in the Makai Senki Disgaea series), it will be possible to convert it to a different weapon type while taking over the status and characteristics provided by the weapon. For example, it will be able to create a sword and spear weapon at the same time, and to make the sword and spear weapon skills together with one weapon.
The specification change of the automatic battle system was also announced. The new element, Automatic Battle System, which has been pros and cons in the previous work, is a format that consumes the value of Magic Sorin in this work, and it is possible to completely skip the capture process (only the captured results and rewards are displayed. ). Magic soloring will increase a certain number if you clear the stage without using automatic combat. The specifications of the stage reward have been changed according to this change. The magic edit has been strengthened. There is a mission that allows you to obtain additional rewards by meeting and capturing specific conditions in the stage reward. (For example, clearing with 10 or more special techniques), the magic edit can enter more complex commands so that all additional rewards can be collected. According to Minowa, he wanted to remove the work feeling in automatic combat as much as possible and create a content that creates a sense of accomplishment. By the way, it is said that the difficulty level of the main part is adjusted based on Makai Senki Disgaea 5.
As a system that uses magic edit, it has been decided that an online battle function to fight the grown unit with a magic edit will be implemented. This has been a match function since the Deal Duel of Makai Senki Disgaea Portable Portable Portable Communications and Makai Senki Disgaea 4. Those who have performed well within a certain period of time will be published in the ranking. There seems to be a reward that can be obtained by participating. In this work, the 3D modeling know-how is accumulated in the company, so that the most 45 series of general-purpose characters will be implemented in 3D. It is expected that the charm of entering and the excitement of user community will be higher, such as aiming for the top prize with a favorite character or sharing the theory of training through SNS.
Series 20th anniversary and Disgaea soul
At the conference, Souhei Shinkawa also prepared a corner that would make the footprints of the Makai Senki Disgaea in a simple form. The Makai Senki Disgaea series, which celebrates the 20th anniversary of Makai Senki Disgaea 7 since Makai Senki Disgaea was released in 2003. The excitement of the work and the concept included in the series were once again talked about.
When there was only one development line for Japan’s best software. January 31, 2002 The Legend of La Pusel Hikari was released. It was a work that could be called the origin of the play style, which is later inherited to the Makai Senki Disgaea series, such as the highest level 9999 and the implementation of the item level. However, according to Souhei Shinkawa, the sales itself was not good. At that time, there was one development line, so we could not make multiple works at the same time. Therefore, the next work could not fail. So the development team took the aggressive attitude. I don’t know what sells, so let’s make something that I like and good.
The development team considers that if the stage is an ant’s magic world and the protagonist is the demon king, no matter how unique the system is included in the setting, there will be no discomfort in the whole work. As a result, the masterpiece of Japan’s best software, Makai Senki Disgaea, which features a number of elements that destroy the common sense of simulation RPG, gave birth. Its appearance is just destructive. Level 9999 and more than 100 million damage created by amazing status. Lift and throw grabs an enemy and ally unit and throws it. A item world that gives weapons and armor a bottom-free concept of growth. Dark Congress that tinkers the game settings. The heretic who broke the rules was created by the determination of death, and the thoughts of the development team’s work, Let’s make good things, were successfully transmitted to users, and more than 130,000 copies were sold in one month. It was a great achievement for the best software in Japan at that time. After that, he recorded well in the country through word of mouth. It was published overseas through Atlas USA, which was well received here.
The male of the simulation RPG title born in this way, Makai Senki Disgaea. I refused to leave and was crazy about it. We struggled to provide users a game experience that other companies would not be challenging. This challenge spirit and service spirit have been passed on to the later work as the Disgaea Soul, which is the basis of the series concept. In fact, the total number of domestic shipments in the series is 2.2 million units. It has achieved a long sales of more than 5 million units worldwide.
Currently, Makai Senki Disgaea PC and Makai Senki Disgaea 22 PC are currently on sale from Steam. Makai Senki Disgaea Refine, Makai Senki 4 Return, Makai Senki Disgaea 5, and Makai Senki Disgaea 6 are on sale in Nintendoswitch/PlayStation 4/PC (Steam). PlayStation 5 editions are now on sale for Makai Senki Disgaea 6. According to Souhei Shinkawa, I want you to play by all means before the new release.
The above is the content of this conference. The Makai Senki Disgaea 7 is still a mystery, but it certainly made me feel the Disgaea soul. I can’t wait for a new opportunity to disclose it. The 20th anniversary title of the series, Makai Senki Disgaea 7, will be released on January 26, 2023. The compatible platform is Nintendo Switch/PlayStation 4/PlayStation 5.
