PS4 Exclusive Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Gets New Videos Showing Story; Core Battle Mode Announced
Square Enix showcased new footage and info about Dissidia Final Fantasy NT for PS4, including story cutscenes and the announcement of the Core Battle mode.
Today Square Enix hosted a livestream from Tokyo featuring the upcoming Dissidia Final Fantasy NT for PS4.
Director Takeo Kujiraoka and Producer Ichiro Hazama were among the hosts, and Yoshinori Kitase also joined to talk about the game’s story.
Like in previous games of the series we had Cosmos and Chaos, the story of Dissidia Final Fantasy NT sees deities struggle by pitching warriors summoned from different dimensions against each other.
While the game doesn’t have a traditional “story mode,” it does include story and event cutscenes between battles. We get to see a few brief videos showing examples of that.
After that, we get to see gameplay from the Arcade Mode, showing the characters that have been announced so far in action. More gameplay further into the stream shows Brave Attacks and more.
A new mode was also announced, named “Core Battle.” We get to see how it works (in the second clip). It’s pretty much exactly what it says on the tin, a pitched fight in which teams have to attack the enemy crystal core and defend their own.
Lastly, we get to see two UI modes that you can select, Arcade and Normal. You can see the difference in the picture at the bottom of the post. The original Arcade version is on the left, while the much simplified Normal version is on the right.
You can watch all the footage below. If you want to read more, you can also check out our recent interview with Kujiraoka-san and Hazama-san. You can also enjoy the latest trailer featuring villain Cloud of Darkness from Final Fantasy III.
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT will release in North America and Europe on January 30th, 2018 exclusively for PS4.
