Disgaea 6 - Zed

Disgaea games keep getting bigger and bigger. And with one of the narrative themes of Disgaea 6 being about excess, of course this is going to be a pretty huge game.

So how big is it? How many episodes are there in Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny? If you want to see a complete list of episodes and maps in Disgaea 6‘s main story, then I’ve got your back.

I should warn you that this is pretty spoiler-y. If you want to go into Disgaea 6 completely blind, then turn back now. But if you don’t mind seeing some chapter names and seeing the game’s twisty chapter structure, then read on!

The bonus characters

Disgaea 6 - Girl Laharl

The western release of Disgaea 6 comes with four extra characters right out of the box. In fact, I had a review copy more than three weeks early, and these characters were already available to me as soon as I installed the game, even though none of the other DLC was available. Because of this, I think it’s worth mentioning them as part of the base game.

In order to acquire those characters, you must complete each of their stages. You have access to these maps super early in the game (you just have to go to the DLC shop to claim them), so I’m going to list them here. Note that these stages scale to slightly above your current level, so with a big team, they’re doable really early on. There’s really no reason to wait.
