The official website for Nippon Ichi Software and Clover Lab's Makai Wars iOS and Android game began streaming a promotional video on Friday. The video previews the main characters and basic gameplay. The simulation role-playing game is slated to launch in spring 2018.
The website also added a character description for the game's protagonist Asagi. She is a high school girl who has been determinedly waiting for 13 years since her debut in Disgaea 2: Cursed Memories to become a protagonist. Although she is the protagonist, the people around her still push her around as always.
Makai Wars is a collaborative simulation RPG that combines Nippon Ichi Software's Disgaea and Yuru Dorashiru game franchises. The game will feature characters from both game series and include new character designs.
Nippon Ichi Software originally announced the game for the PlayStation Portable in 2004, and then revealed in 2005 that the game was planned for the PlayStation 3. The company did not reveal any other information about the game until it revealed the title as a smartphone game during its 25th anniversary livestream this past July. Nippon Ichi Software also launched a four-panel manga for the game in July.
The official 25th anniversary for the company will be on July 12, 2018. Also as part of the 25th anniversary, Nippon Ichi Software will open a pop-up "Princess Café" in Nagoya (September 1-14), Osaka (mid-November), Akihabara (late January 2018), Fukuoka (early March 2018), and Sapporo (late April 2018). The company will also host five "All-Country Caravan Talk Events." The first two events will be in September and November, and the other three events will be in 2018. Nippon Ichi Software will then hold a "finale event" for the anniversary in July 2018.
