Disgaea 5’s Revenge and Maougi system footage released

NIS shows how combatants can all get back at one another for being such big jerks.

Disgaea 5

NIS has posted the first in what appears to be an upcoming series of videos dedicated to showing off some of the nuances of Disgaea 5‘s gameplay systems, starting with the newly added Revenge and Maougi systems.

Check out the footage below. The proper demonstration begins at around the 1:10 mark. In a nutshell, both allies and enemies can exact Revenge, which is done by taking attacks from the opposition to build up a meter that can be seen to the left of character portraits during battle. Once it’s topped off, they enter Revenge Mode, where they get a massive power boost for a limited time. From about 2:02 onwards, the discussion moves to Maougis, which are special moves that select characters can pull off during Revenge Mode, namely “Demon Lord-tier” ones. Each character’s Maougi is unique, but they’re naturally designed to be powerful and capable of turning the tide of battle.

Disgaea 5 is currently slated for launch in Japan for PS4 on March 26, 2015.
