Makai Wars English Guide, Character Info, & Translations

Makai Wars (魔界ウォーズ ) released on Android and iOS (in Japan only)  in February and as a huge fan of Disgaea I started a guide to both get you started quickly despite the language barrier and also detail the more intricate details that are harder to understand without knowing Japanese. The guide will be expanded over time as new info comes in. As always, you can donate to my Patreon to support my guides!

Makai Wars is a simplified Strategy Roleplaying Game much like Disgaea (and half of NIS’ other games), and it’s Asagi’s very own game! For real this time! No really, stop laughing!

Guide Updates

Limited Events

Summer Asagi Event

Complete the event stages to get 50 Summer Asagi Stones, then 50 more Summer Asagi Stones can be bought in the special Sapphire Shop (limited to this event only) to summon Summer Asagi.

The store also has rubies, skill orbs and more, access it from the Prinny Tent icon on the main menu or in the event SP quest menu.

The final level of the event gives 300 Sapphires each clear, and there’s also daily rewards to get up to 5,000 extra sapphires:

  • KO 30 (randomly selected element) enemies: 700
  • Sell 3 (randomly selected item type, weapons etc): 500
  • Finish 5 quests with Asagi in party: 500
    • Dark Asagi and Summer Asagi both count
  • Clear summer quest levels 5 times: 1000
  • Clear all the above missions: 2000
  • Time bonus 6:00 – 12:00 (Japanese time): 300

Given the length of the event (30 days total), if no days were missed you’d get a whopping 150,000 sapphires from dailies alone.

What The Heck Is Makai Wars?

Makai Wars (魔界ウォーズ) is a long-running gag in the Disgaea/NIS community. Originally it was announced as a PSP game for E3 2004 and Asagi was to be the protagonist. It was a no-show. It was later re-announced as a PS3 game, which also never materialized.

Since then Asagi has shown up in a majority of NIS tactical games making cameo appearances, usually searching for her game, Makai Wars. She even got a full “Asagi Mode” side story in Prinny 2: Dawn of Operation Panties, Dood (yes that’s a real title).

Finally, in the fateful year of our Overlord 2018, Makai Wars is a real thing and Asagi didn’t lie about it being her game; though it’s basically a Disgaea spinoff title featuring her. It’s a mini-SRPG playing like a simplified version of many of NIS’s other titles, specifically Disgaea.
