A new Dissidia: Final Fantasy wall scroll will be available at Square Enix’s merchandise booth at Tokyo Game Show 2015. The keyart features Warrior of Light, Terra, Onion Knight, Y’shtola, Cloud and Lightning. Pricing is set to 2 800 yens.
Dissidia Final Fantasy is scheduled for arcade release in Fall 2015 and it’s being developed in collaboration between Koei Tecmo and Square Enix. Another exciting collaboration comes with the arcade hardware where Sony and Square Enix are working together. At first, Dissidia was being in development on “traditional” arcade hardware, but now it’s utilizing the power of customized PlayStation 4 hardware.
The third installment in Dissidia series will be featuring new gameplay elements such as a 3 vs. 3 battle system where up to six players can fight against each other at the same time. Since the series is moving away from the handheld consoles, the visuals will be receiving a significant upgrade as well. During fights when your character gets damaged, her or his appearance will also change. Earlier this year, the premiere trailer introduces us with returning heroes such as Warrior of Light, Lightning, Cloud Strife, Terra Branford and Onion Knight, but also a new hero from Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn – Y’shtola. The development team didn’t reveal are they planning to bring Final Fantasy XV or Final Fantasy Type-0 HD characters to the game, but they promise at least 50 characters. Square Enix is also planning to bring more music, characters and stages to the game after the release through patches.
It’s likely that the possible PlayStation 4 release will be “a complete pack” when it’s being released somewhere in 2016-17.
