Although we never got any groundbreaking PS3 announcements from Square-Enix this year, we did get the incredible Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII , and Dissidia: Final Fantasy is coming up fast.
For those of you who remember the golden age of RPGs, there may be a few soon-to-be-revealed Dissidia characters that'll kick your nostalgia into full gear. As Final Fantasy Union points out, Nikkei's TrendyNet recently conducted an interview with Dissidia 's senior director, Ken Arawaka, and he dropped some interesting names. Apparently, we haven't heard about all the FF characters to be included in the PSP title; the likes of Terra, Bartz and yes, even Cloud will be featured in the flashy, fast-action handheld experience. The game is on tap for the Tokyo Game Show this week, so that's when we expect to hear the confirmation; Arawaka did say there would be "6 playable characters" in the event demo. It'll be playable, too – as well it should be, by this time – which means we might get some gameplay feedback from attendees soon after TGS has concluded. Of course, this isn't the same as hearing that Terra and Cloud will have a secret romance in the Final Fantasy VII sequel, but we'll take what we can get.
We've already accumulated more than a few videos of the game, so if you missed 'em, feel free to peruse our frequently updated PSP videos . Remember, Dissidia: Final Fantasy isn't really an RPG; it's actually closer to a crazy action/fighting game, from what we can see.
