Switch-Exclusive Disgaea 6 Coming In 2021

Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny looks like a wild ride with some real big damage numbers.


During the latest Nintendo Direct Mini Partner Showcase, several games were announced with reveal trailers including the next entry in the long-running strategy-RPG series Disgaea. The Switch-exclusive Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny is launching in Summer 2021 and we got a quick look at some gameplay.

Disgaea 6 looks to be getting wild by leaning into its over-the-top approach; damage numbers are getting real big by going into the quadrillions as they said, and levels that go up to 99,999,999.

The game channels its quirky nature through the new main character named Zed, a zombie boy who has come to life with powers through "super-reincarnation" and gets stronger each time he dies. There are also other chibi-style characters with their own personalities that seem to round out Disgaea 6's irreverent tone.

Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance will also be available for free for a limited time--from Sept 23 to 29--if you're a Switch Online subscriber. For more from the Nintendo Direct Mini, catch up on the announcement of Monster Hunter Rise and the reveal of Monster Hunter Stories 2.
