Disgaea RPG transforms the series' grid-based tactical combat into something closer to a traditional RPG. Teams of three face off on the battlefield not unlike PSX-era Final Fantasy games or Pokemon Masters

Players gather the ultimate Netherworld army with characters spanning the entire franchise, and yes, that means gacha mechanics.

Beyond that, Disgaea RPG is very much a Disgaea game. There's the unbelievably high damage counters, Item Worlds, combos, and more, all wrapped around an original Disgaea story with an all-new soundtrack. The Dark Assembly is back, alongside something called the Overlord's Tower with stacks of rewards ripe for the taking.

And this is only the first new Disgaea in 2021. Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny releases June 29 for Nintendo Switch.


Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
