Disgaea 5, Just announced at this week’s Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia conference, looks to be the biggest entry yet in NIS’ venerated strategy RPG series.

This week’s issue of Dangeki Playstation reveals that the number of characters participating in the game’s turn-based battles has skyrocketed from 10 on the Playstation 3 to 100 on the Playstation 4. This tremendous boost in numbers is sure to make the game’s cerebral skirmishes even more engaging as players sink hundreds of hours into this sprawling underworld epic.

NIS’ President Sohei Nikawa stated the team originally considered bringing the game to both the PS3 and PS4 as a multiplatform title, but decided to go all out on Sony’s shiny new black box to take full advantage of the more powerful hardware.

Disgaea 5 is set to be released for the Playstation 4 in Spring 2015 in Japan. For those wishing to get their mitts on the game early to get a taste of the game’s SRPG action, the next issue of Dangeki Playstation will include a PSN code allowing Japanese gamers a chance to try the gane ahead of its 2015 release.
