■ The Setting is a Japanese-esque Netherworld! Slash through the corrupt shogunate with your Bushido!

The Disgaea series is a simulation RPG set in an over-the-top Netherworld, where demons, angels, heroes and evil lords run amok.

In Disgaea 7, the story takes place in a world called “Hinomoto Netherworld Cluster”, which is inspired by Japanese culture. The protagonists, wandering samurai Fuji and otaku girl Piririka, will fight across the world to recapture the impoverished Hinomoto from invaders and overthrow the Ooedo shogunate.

In terms of game systems, the series’ signature replayability features return, alongside even more over-the-top new systems. Look forward to a brand new one Disgaea experience!

“Hinomoto Netherworld Cluster”

The “Onsen Netherworld”, where hot springs spew out evil spirits instead of water; the “Sardine Netherworld”, which consists in a super-sized sardine in space; the “Shikoku Netherworld”, which has a giant vortex that has destroyed numerous demon ships; and so on…

In a world made up of multiple unique Netherworlds, the inhabitants followed a code unlike other demons called ‘Bushido’.

Although that is a thing of the past. Hinomoto has changed since the arrival of the demon admiral Opener and his navy.

Hinomoto’s demons abide by the laws Opener has enacted, called “Hinomoto Destroy Hatto.”

“Hinomoto Destroy Hatto”

  • One: Destroy Bushido.
  • Two: anyone who complains about his salary or taxes will be killed.
  • Three: say “no thanks” to friendship or love.
  • Four: Please help the strong and defeat the weak.
  • Five: Combat makes the Netherworld, so feel free to use force.

…anyone who does not follow these laws will be punished by the Harakiri.

Finally, the once honored samurai disappeared from Hinomoto…

This is a story about a girl who admires Bushido, and a young man who hates Bushido, as they fight for what they believe in, in a world that forgot honor.
