Dissidia Final Fantasy NT will be available as early as next year!

With E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo 2017) just days away, the guys over at Team Ninja and publishers Square Enix has teased the release of the third installment of the popular Final Fantasy brawler game – Dissidia Final Fantasy NT, which will be coming to the PS4 early next year. Although Dissidia Final Fantasy has already been out for more than two years now as an arcade game available only in Japan, it’s re-release for next year marks its move towards the console line, hence the inclusion of ‘NT’ into its title name.

For those of you aren’t familiar, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT will pit all your favourite Final Fantasy characters over the years against one another in a 3v3 brawler-type match-up. From crowd favourite Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII to emo king Squall Leonhart of Final Fantasy VIII, the bandit Zidane Tribal of Final Fantasy IX and even the Blitzball-loving Tidus of Final Fantasy X, all your favourite protagonists will be part of the action. Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII will also be a playable character to add some much needed estrogen to the game (it would be great to see characters like Tifa and Yuna included as well; probably as a DLC most likely).

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT will also see the inclusion of new characters that are not part of the original lineup like Garland from Final Fantasy I, The Emperor from Final Fantasy II, Kain Highwind of Final Fantasy IV and even the latest protagonist to the Final Fantasy series, Noctis Lucius Caelum of Final Fantasy XV. Also making a special appearance will be everyone’s favourite antagonist, Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII.

The PS4 version will see a brand new story mode written just for the game by none other than Kazushige Nojima, who has not only written for many parts of the Final Fantasy series but even Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts as well as the upcoming remake of Final Fantasy VII (I CANNOT WAIT!) Other new inclusions into the PS4 version includes an offline single-player mode. If you’re wondering what the ‘NT’ in the title name stands for, the ‘N’ stands for ‘New’ while the ‘T’ carries many different variations including ‘Trial’, ‘Tale’ and ‘Tournament’ to name a few.
