Following the game’s North American release a couple of weeks ago, distributor Bandai Namco Entertainment Australia have confirmed that Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance is now available for purchase in Australia and New Zealand.
This is the sixth major home console release in the Disgaea franchise, which first began with Disgaea: Hour of Darkness in 2003. What began as an already bountiful tactical RPG with a lot of replay value, has continued to provide content and concepts both new and old to entice players into reaching the level cap of 9,999. To date, the series has spanned three home video game consoles (PS2, PS3, PS4) and three portable consoles (NDS, PSP and PS Vita).
Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengence serves as Nippon Ichi Software’s first title developed exclusively for the PlayStation 4, opting to go all-in with Sony Computer Entertainment’s current generation console rather than doing a multi-generational PS3/PS4 release. According to my review, their design and developmental decisions were mostly strong, having received an overall score of A.
Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance tells a tale of revenge, and of rebellion. As a new and terrible Overlord named Void Dark seeks to enslave the countless Netherworlds, one young demon has stood to end his reign—Killia. In Disgaea 5, lead Killia and his tenacious army of rebels on their dark and dangerous path to vengeance.
