Today Square Enix hosted a livestream dedicated to the upcoming fighting game Dissidia Final Fantasy NT, and Director Takeo Kujiraoka and Producer Ichiro Hazama showcased a tease about the new characters that will be introduced as DLC with the season pass.
Each of the six characters will also be available separately, and they’re summarized in the image at the bottom of the post.
The first character will be male and will come from the second half of the number Final Fantasy games. The second will also be male but will be lifted from the first half of the series. The third character will be female, from the second half of the Final Fantasy franchise. With the fourth character, we’re back to male, still from the latter half od the series.
The fifth character will be a girl and is the only one that appeared in a previous Dissidia title. She will also be from the second half of the series. Lastly, the sixth character will be male, also from the second half of the series.
If your personal picks don’t fit those descriptions, you should not despair, as the team is considering releasing more character beyond the extent of the season pass, and they’re thinking about various options on who those new members of the cast might be.
If you want to learn more about the game, you can check out a recent trailer featuring the cast of villains, a couple of commercials, and some screenshots showing the features available in the upcoming beta.
Of course, you should also read our interview with Director Takeo Kujiraoka and Producer Ichiro Hazama.
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT will launch in Japan tomorrow, while gamers from North America and Europe will have to wait for January 30th. It’ll come exclusively for PS4.
Incidentally, the picture at the top of the post should not be read as confirmation that Aranea Highwind from Final Fantasy XV will appear in the game (albeit she fits the description for the third character to be released). It’s simply my wishful thinking.
