Today, during the EVO 2017 livestream Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Producer Ichiro Hazama and Director Takeo Kujiraoka had a special message for the game’s fans.
The two announced that a closed beta for the game will be held this summer.
We also heard that Square Enix and Koei Tecmo would like to have as many players as possible register to test the game and provide feedback.
The American beta page is handled by Square Enix, so you need a Square Enix Members account to register. On the other hand the European one appears to be directly on Sony Interactive Entertainment beta portal, so a PlayStation Network account is likely to be required.
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT will launch early next year exclusively for PS4.
