The original arcade version of Dissidia Final Fantasy runs on PS4 technology, which was a quite peculiar, but ultimately successful decision. The home console version us going to release only on PS4, but nowadays not all exclusives remain so forever.
At Gamescom in Cologne, DualShockers had a chat with Producer Ichiro Hazama and Director Takeo Kujiraoka, and we asked if the team is considering an expansion of other platforms.
Hazama-san mentioned that the team isn’t thinking about any other platforms at the moment. They want to make sure that the relationship with Sony Interactive Entertainment is honored and that the game is perfected into the best it can be before considering anything else.
Speaking of PS4, Kujiraoka-san also promised that there are going to be improvements for the game on PS4 Pro, but at this stage he isn’t able to provide more details. All he can say is that the game is going to look more beautiful on Sony’s souped-up console. That being said, both PS4 and PS4 Pro will run the game at 60 frames-per-second.
If you want to hear more about the upcoming game, you can check out our hands-on preview, and the plethora of special editions that Square Enix will launch. Final Fantasy VIII villainess Ultimecia is the latest character to be added to the arcade version, but we don’t know whether she will be included in the PS4 launch.
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT will release in North America and Europe on January 30th, 2018 exclusively for PS4.
