Today I woke up to exciting news this morning in regards to Final Fantasy. I want to thank @RedMakuzawa (news writer for Final Fantasy content and social media manager to the project game Lost Soul Aside) and the Square Portal for keeping me up to date on the latest news on Square Enix titles.
It was announced today that Square Enix will be releasing a new Dissidia video game for PS4 titled Dissidia Final Fantasy NT (NT stands could stand for New Tale or New Tournament). This game was developed by Team Ninja who are well-known for games like Dead or Alive, Nioh and Ninja Gaiden.
The game will include over 20 playable characters (Squall, Cloud, Sephiroth, much more) and amazing summoning characters like Shiva and Ifrit. It will also include team battles like 3v3 matches. You can play as your favorite Final Fantasy character offline and online; however, it is mentioned that there will not be a story mode but it will have some sort of story. The story narrative is done by Kazushige Nojima who worked on titles like Final Fantasy XV and the upcoming games Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII Remake.
But wait there is more! Leaked in Amazon (with the price of $60), even though it wasn’t in the recent trailer, it is confirmed that Noctis Lucis Caelum (protagonist in Final Fantasy XV) will be joining the game.
If you are going to E3 2017 (June 13-15), this game will be playable as a demo. The game doesn’t have an exact date but this game will be released for PS4 in early 2018.
If you don’t know what is Dissidia, Dissidia Final Fantasy is a video game spinoff based on the popular franchise Final Fantasy where characters (good and evil) are pitted together and fight each other in a unique fighting RPG video game. The first game was in the PSP called Dissida Final Fantasy and another one was made and titled Dissidia 012 [duodecim] Final Fantasy. This game was also on the arcades in Japan.
