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)


So I started my first week of work–and beating Final Fantasy becomes just a Dream

Warrior of light (Work) suplexing Garland (Me)

Was pretty straight-forward, as any newcomer is concerned I had some rough patches but that’s to be expected. I didn’t really get to play anygames except the Resident Evil:Revalations Demo.

Oh anyway for some reason I’ve been having random urges to play the most random games. First it was Phantasy Star Portable 2, then Kingdom Hearts:Birth By Sleep even Pokemans-A week before this I was trying to tank through the original Metal Gear on the MSX and just today I was play Ys:The Oath in Felghana.

Ok Ok so I’m rambling quite a bit, I think I’ve abandoned my quest to finish a numbered Final Fantasy game….I mean with this new job (which will have me traveling all over) I wont be able to sit down and dedicate a sufficient amount time to beating any of them. I mean yea I have Several FF’s on Handhelds but it’s the same problem. (Plus I don’t want to pop out my DS or PSP in the office with my co-worker looking right over my shoulder). Maybe I’ll try Finishing Ys or Dragon Quest IX…..
