Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is the third installment in the crossover spin-off that brings together iconic heroes and villains from the Final Fantasy franchise. Unlike the previous two games, this entry introduces three-on-three team battles along with powerful summons like Odin, Ifrit, and Shiva.
This fighting game originally launched in Japanese arcades during 2015, but it will finally be getting a PS4 port sometime next year. Incidentally, Jecht from Final Fantasy X was recently announced as the new character to join the arcade roster.
