Disgaea 7: Vows of the Virtueless - A Nostalgic Dive into the World of Hinomoto

Greetings, fellow retro gamers! RetroGamer84 here, and today we’re going to take a trip down memory lane with a review of the highly anticipated Disgaea 7: Vows of the Virtueless. I’ve been a fan of the Disgaea series since its inception and let me tell you; this entry has me feeling a nostalgic excitement that only a true-blue retro gamer can appreciate. So, fasten your seatbelts as we journey into the demonic realm of Hinomoto!

The Story and Characters

In Disgaea 7, we follow the misadventures of our protagonist, Fuji, as he navigates the complex world of Hinomoto. The narrative centers around bushido-obsessed Pirilika, a sheltered heiress who convinces Fuji to act as her protector while she pursues her dreams. Classic Disgaea shenanigans ensue as they uncover hidden truths and things turn out to be not what they seem.

For fans of the series, seeing familiar faces as DLC brought a wave of nostalgia, and the new characters introduced are charming and lovable in their own right. That classic Disgaea humor we all know and love is still intact, making for a highly enjoyable and entertaining story.

Gameplay Mechanics and New Features

Disgaea 7 builds upon traditional tactical RPG gameplay while introducing new features that are innovative and downright addictive. Some standout mechanics include:

  1. Jumbification: Fuse monsters together to create a formidable asset, adding a neat strategic element to team-building.
  2. Hell Mode: Unleash the potential of your characters by embracing their demonic side, increasing their power and abilities.
  3. Item Reincarnation: Give your favorite equipment a second life by infusing it with new stats and abilities, all while keeping its original form.

Additionally, successfully completing stages will unlock new and improved Auto-Battle options, allowing you to see how your team fares in online ranked battles.

As an avid retro gamer, I’ve played my fair share of tactical RPGs, but Disgaea 7’s gameplay and new features take the experience to a whole new level.

Tips for Success

  1. Take advantage of character customization, and don’t be afraid to experiment with different classes. With over 40 classes to choose from, your squad’s potential is limitless.
  2. Fuse monsters and reincarnate items strategically to adapt to ever-evolving battle scenarios.
  3. Dive deep into Disgaea’s rich history! Take time to explore the series’ past games, and gain a new appreciation for the characters and world of Hinomoto.

RetroGamer84’s Final Thoughts

Disgaea 7: Vows of the Virtueless truly delivers on its promise to take SRPG excitement to new heights. As a retro gamer, I felt right at home in the quirky and humorous world of Hinomoto. The gameplay mechanics, story, and character interactions scratch that nostalgic itch that I’ve been yearning for.

My only gripe is the price for the full addition, coming in at a steep $100. While some might argue that the abundance of content, DLC, and hours of entertainment warrant the price, it’s nevertheless a tough pill to swallow for your average retro gaming enthusiast.

All things considered, Disgaea 7: Vows of the Virtueless is a must-play game for series veterans and newcomers alike. I give it a RetroGamer84 Seal of Approval, with a drop of bittersweet nostalgia.

Until next time, RetroGamer84 signing off - happy gaming!
