Revenge is a world that gets thrown around a lot in the latest trailer for Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance trailer. The game’s primary cast has revenge on the mind, and publisher NIS America is keen on hammering the point home. Revenge, vengeance, and over-the-top gameplay, it seems, are set to be the key tenants of Disgaea 5.

The trailer, seen above, does a good job of conveying the Disgaea experience. It’s loud and larger than life, with anime-esque characters of all shapes and sizes wearing outfits that would make most people blush. There’s strategic combat that can be optimized and manipulated and lots of explosive particle effects. Disgaea 5, at least from this trailer, looks to be everything a Disgaea fan could hope for.

The real hope, however, is that Disgaea 5: Alliance of Vengeance can find an audience on the PlayStation 4 outside of the franchise’s established fanbase. When it comes to the J/SRPG market, Disgaea is pretty niche, and there have been comments regarding Disgaea 5’s success dictating the future plans of its development team.

Disgaea 5 is set to release on October 6, 2015.
