The developers have announced that Ramza Beoulve from Final Fantasy Tactics will be arriving in DISSIDIA Final Fantasy -Arcade- as soon as the latest patch is released. They also published a teaser picture from the game on the official Japanese blog. The upcoming patches will be including villain characters from the chaos side as well.
Dissidia: Final Fantasy was released in arcades on November 26, 2015 in Japan. The game is 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 PlayStation 4.
Square Enix announced the following characters for the new Dissidia game: Cloud, Lightning, Terra, Onion Knight, Warrior of Light, Y’shtola, Squall, Firion, Bartz, Cecil, Tidus, Shantotto, Zidane and Vaan – with more coming soon. 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. The game features summons such as Ifrit, Shiva, Ramuh, 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 now out in Japan. The game is being developed for the arcades at first, but will be arriving for PlayStation 4 later.
