Return to battle in 2018.
Earlier today an Amazon listing went up for Dissidia Final Fantasy NT, a PS4 port of the arcade game that hit Japan in 2015. Now, Square Enix has officially announced the game for PS4, along with a trailer and release window. The console version of Dissidia will be heading West in early 2018, with a few new features to boot. Here’s a few details from the Amazon page that went live earlier.
- Final Fantasy, everything you could ever want – Over 20 playable Final Fantasy heroes and villains to play, over ten iconic battle arenas, legendary summons, tons of equippable weapons and moogles
- Legendary narrative – Dive into an all-new Final Fantasy story, written by writer Kazushige Nojima (Fantasy VII Remake, Final Fantasy XV, Final Fantasy X, Kingdom Hearts, and Kingdom Hearts II)
- Your fantasy. Your fight – Each battle you wage, you will gain XP and gil to deepen the customization of your Final Fantasy champion – from EX skills to weapons to skins, level up
- Only the brave survive – The bravery combat system allows a much deeper and more methodical approach to the fighting game genre, separating luck from skill
Additionally, a few new details arrived from the Japanese live stream as well, courtesy of Gematsu.
- There isn’t a “story mode” per say as it’s mainly based off of the Japanese arcade fighting game. However, the PS4 version will have a story not found in arcades, delivered through event scenes.
- You won’t have to fight other players, you can experience a single story no matter how you want to play.
- The game still uses the basic 3vs3 battle system found in the arcades, but will include brand new systems and battle modes as well.
- The arcade version will continue to be updated first.
- The game will be playable at E3 from June 13 to 15.
