Disgaea 7, an upcoming title from Nippon Ichi Software, introduces an interesting new gameplay mechanic called the Dodeka MAX system. This system allows players to choose one of their units and transform it into a large, powerful version of itself. This can incur an incredible advantage in combat as the transformed unit has increased range and power over the enemy. However, enemy units can do the same and come head-to-head with your transformed unit.
Another feature that Dodeka MAX brings to Disgaea 7 is the “Dobility” system, which allows the whole party to gain beneficial passive abilities. The origin of the Dodeka MAX system takes its roots in two Japanese words meaning “ballista” and “demon,” and combines them with “deka” and “max” to designate a giant size. The mechanic is shown off in the Disgaea Private School – Second Term video, which can be found on the official YouTube channel.
Disgaea 7 is releasing in Japan on the 26th of January, 2023, and will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and the Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately, the international release date of the game is unknown, but more information is expected to be shared in the near future.
