Disgaea 7: Vows of the Virtueless heads west this fall

Disgaea 7

Even more hell to pay this fall

The animated, lively strategy RPG series Disgaea‘s latest entry is coming to the west this fall. NIS America announced today that Disgaea 7: Vows of the Virtueless is coming to PC, Switch, PlayStation 5, and PS4 in the west this fall.

In this latest entry, the realm of Hinomoto has fallen under the control of a tyrannical force. Fuji, an “empathy-averse warrior gone astray,” and his compatriots will have to band together and take it all back turn-by-turn, square-by-square.

A bunch of new features are in store for the latest Disgaea, including a special feature called “Jumbificiation.” This apparently makes characters really, really big. I certainly hope that won’t affect my nightmares at all.

Additionally, Item Reincarnation looks to add even more reason to grind and upgrade. The A.I. auto-battle function is also seeing an update, which should be great for all those times you don’t want to issue commands yourself.

A demonic strategy

The Disgaea series has always offered a signature blend of stylized, cartoon-y devils and immense replayability. Disgaea 7: Vows of the Virtueless certainly looks to have more of both. The improved auto-battle options especially seem like a boon, given how much of my experience with Disgaea was grinding to make the numbers go up.

This newest Disgaea is already out in Japan, having released on January 26. But it looks like those in the west hopefully won’t have to wait longer until this fall, and there are special editions on the NIS store for those who really want to celebrate a new entry. It will also have both English and Japanese audio available, for those who like the option.

Disgaea 7: Vows of the Virtueless arrives on PC, PS4, PS5, and Switch in the west this fall.
