Dissidia Final Fantasy Returns!

February 14, 2015

What a great way to start Valentine’s Day!!! Square Enix has announced that there will be a new Dissidia: Final Fantasy, game coming to arcades in Japan! I sank more hours into both the Japanese and domestic versions of the first Dissidia game than any other handheld title I owned at the time. Originally released to the PlayStation Portable, Dissidia was a arena fighter/crossover title.

It featured every main hero and main antagonist from Final Fantasy I to X, with a few characters like XI’s Shantotto and XII’s Gabranth being unlock-able.  A prequel game called “Dissidia 012” was released with even more characters like FFXIII’s Lightning and FFVII’s  Tifa Lockhart joining the battle. The general plot of both games was that the God’s of Light and Dark wage an eternal war with each other, these wars are fought by the various characters from Final Fantasy. There’s plenty of drama, exposition and interaction with the characters making the game a delight to play for fans of the Final Fantasy franchise.

Anyway, here’s what we know so far,

3 on 3 Battles( as opposed to the one on one set up of the first two games)
It’s a reboot and not a continuation of the last two games
Everything in the trailer is composed of in game assets, no CGI. (source)
