So.. how does this topic make you feel when first reading it? Interesting I bet. But before making any judgements, check out their trailer above. Keep in mind, this is their 3rd Final Fantasy fighting game installment known as “Dissidia”, so this isn’t anything new for them. Did I mention that this includes 3v3 fighting?
Dissidia was made to represent the Final Fantasy series 20th Anniversary campaign. The Dissidia franchise has been described as a “dramatic progressive action” genre as characters from the Final Fantasy series battle it out in 3D environments. The saga began back in 2009 exclusively for PSP. Because of its great feedback and well-rounded rating, it would eventually lead into its 2012 sequel (which is actually a prequel and a remake all-in-one), “Dissidia 012”. If you would like an idea of what this new dissidia might play like overall, check out this video:
As far as we know now, Square Enix announced that this new Dissidia game will be released in Japanese Arcades. Square Enix announced the game at the Japanese Amusement Expo, which focuses on all things arcade. They’ve even launched a website for the game, though it doesn’t have much information right now. Square Enix didn’t announce any plans to bring the game to consoles for now.
What this means for us: we’re basically on the side lines for now. There isn’t much to go by so we can’t tell if they will or won’t be bringing this outside of Japan. Frankly, I wouldn’t be too surprised if they kept it exclusively for Japan. But that doesn’t mean we can’t hope.
Stay tuned for more.
