Today, Square Enix released two TV commercials of its upcoming fighting game Dissidia Final Fantasy NT.
The two commercials show mostly cinematic cutscenes from the game’s opening by Visual Works, with an additional glimpse of gameplay.
On top of that, we also get more information on the characters that will be available during the second phase of the Japanese open beta, which will happen between 6 PM and 11 PM (translating into 9 AM to 2 PM GMT and 1 AM to 6 AM PST) on January 6th and January 7th.
To take part into the beta and download the client, you need a Japanese PSN account. If you don’t have one you can find out how to create it, alongside with a few housekeeping tips, in our dedicated article. Keep in mind that the western open beta starts on January 12th, so playing the Japanese one isn’t exactly all that necessary.
That being said, on January 6th the following characters will be available: Warrior of Light, Firion, Cecil Harvey, Cloud Strife, Squall Leonhart, Zidane Tribal, Jecht, Noctis, The Emperor, Golbez, Terra Branford, Y’shtola, Onion Knight, Barts Klauser, and Ramza Beoulve.
On January 7th the roster will change and we’ll get Garland, Cloud of Darkness, Cloud Strife, Sephiroth, Kuja, Tidus, Noctis, Kain Highwind, Kefka Palazzo, Ultimecia, Shantotto, Ace, Exdeath, Vaan, and Ramza Beoulve.
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT will launch in North America and Europe on January 30th, 2018 exclusively for PS4.
