Square Enix Reveals New Dissidia Final Fantasy Trailer and Character

In a recent press conference, Square Enix revealed a new trailer for the upcoming arcade sequel to the Dissidia Final Fantasy series of crossover fighting games. Developed by Tecmo Koei’s Team Ninja, the new game will feature 3 VS 3 fights between the heroes and villains culled from Final Fantasy’s long and illustrious history. Revealed thus far as playable are such fan favorites as Cloud Strife, from FF7, Terra Branford, from FF6, and the Warrior of Light, who hails all the way from the very first Final Fantasy game from 1985. Newcomers include Y’shtola, a cat-like woman from the MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, and Ramza Beoulve, the hero of Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions.

Also new to the sequel is the ability to build up a Summon Gauge, which, upon being filled, allows the player to summon one of the Final Fantasy series many summoned beasts to fight for them. This is illustrated in the trailer above by Lightning summoning the flame spirit Ifrit. As of writing the game will be released in Japanese arcades later this year, with the possibility of a Playstation 4 release coming sometime later. This marks the third Dissidia release since 2009, and the first for an arcade platform, as the earlier games were exclusive to the PSP in both America and Japan.

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
