DISSIDIA Final Fantasy

New “DISSIDIA Final Fantasy” Trailer Reveals More Playable Characters


It looks like that the new Dissidia game will be pure bliss and joy for Final Fantasy fans when it launches next month in Japan. Dissidia: Final Fantasy arrives in arcades on November 26, 2015, but it’s also planned to be released on PlayStation 4 a year after the release – somewhere in 2016 or 2017. The idea for the arcade release is to release several patches including new maps and characters through the year and finally ship the completed edition on the new-generation consoles.

Previously, Square Enix announced the following characters for the new Dissidia game: Cloud, Lightning, Terra, Onion Knight, Warrior of Light, Y’shtola, Squall, Firion, Bartz and Cecil. The new trailer revealed even more new playable characters – Tidus, Shantotto, Zidane and Vaan.  But more is to come: the development team estimates that there will be over 50 characters in total once all patches are out and done. Compared to the previous Dissidia games, there will be a new amazing change to the summoning system: this time the eidolons will be joining the players in the battlefield, featuring new beautifully crafted HD-era renders. Summoning happens by filling “the summon gauge” and pressing the summoning button. By pressing the button at the same time, your team can speed up the cast time as well. Go teamwork! Previously we knew that the game will be starred by Ifrit, Shiva and Ramuh, but more eidolons will be revealed soon – including Odin and Leviathan.

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. During fights when your character gets damaged, her or his appearance will also change. The EX system features two types of skills: there are shared skills that every character can use,  abilities such as Protect or Bio and a signature EX skills that are specific to each character – like in the earlier entries in the series.

DISSIDIA Final Fantasy soundtrack is being composed by Takeharu Ishimoto who also worked on “Final Fantasy Type-0” and “The World Ends with You” soundtracks. DISSIDIA Final Fantasy is scheduled for release on November 26, 2015 in Japan. The game is being developed for the arcades at first, but will be arriving for the new-generation home consoles later.

  1. Yeah, I agree, they have to add in all previous characters that were in it. To leave them out is to subtract from the serious which is almost always a bad idea. With FFI I don’t think they would add anymore because in putting “Warrior of Light” they combined all the possible playable characters into one. With FFII they could add any of the other three. With FFIII they did the same thing they did in FFI which was add the characters into one. With FFIV, I agree with Rydia, Yang and Edge. With FFV, the three others are available but they made Butz/Bartz able to use all styles available, so they don’t need others. With VI, I would love to see Locke, Shadow and Edgar and Sabin, so with you there. VII, I think they would only use characters from the original game. Zack and Vincent, Yuffie maybe, definantly Nanaki! VIII, Zell seems likely and Rinoa, maybe Irvine or Quistis, but if Seifer was added, he’d be a villain. IX I could see Freya, Red and Steiner…the mages would be harder but could be support. X Wakka I see and Auron I see as well as Kimahri, Seymour would be a villain but I can also see Rikku and Payne showing up since the Yuna X-2 costume was in Duodecim. I never played the MMO’s either, so you aren’t alone there. XII I can see Fran, Balthier and Basch but maybe they want to throw in Ashe, no idea. For XIII I can see Snow, Fang and Sazh but not Cid because the Cid’s have been kept out of the Dissidia games and I’m pretty sure there was a reason for that. Caius could be an enemy for sure, but if Caius and Noel were in there as playable, I would think Serah would be too. I know nothing about XV yet, so I can’t say, but the other games I could see is maybe a Yuke from Crystal Chronicles, Ramza from Tactics, Angeal and Genesis from Crisis Core and so on.

  2. I am massively stoked for this game – Leviathan looked really cool – can’t wait for Bahamut :p

    My guesses for future characters (new ones to the Series) –
    FFI – Red Mage, FFII – Leon, FFIII – Another Onion Knight, FFIV – Yang, Rydia, Edge, FFV – Galuf, Faris, FFVI – Locke, Setzer, Cyan, Shadow, Edgar, Sabin, FFVII – Genesis, Zack, Vincent, FFVIII – Seifer, Zell, Rinoa, FFIX – Garnet, Vivi, Freya, Red, Beatrix, Garland, FFX – Wakka, Auron, Kimahri, Seymour, FFXI – (Never played it), FFXII – Fran, Balthier, Basch, FFXIII – Snow, Fang, Cid, Noel, Caius, FFXIV – (Never played it), FFXV – Noctis

    Then add in the ones from the previous 2 games but haven’t shown/confirmed yet –
    Garland, Emperor, Cloud of Darkness, Golbez, Kain, Exdeath, Gilgamesh, Kefka, Sephiroth, Tifa, Aerith (i highly doubt her since she was only support), Ultimecia, Laguna, Kuja, Yuna, Jecht, Prishe, Gabranth

    So theres plenty to choose from xD
