The first was a big hit, so it's not at all surprising to see a sequel. …the title might cause a double-take, though.
Anyway, Square-Enix has revealed that Dissidia 012 Duodecim: Final Fantasy will hit North American stores some time next year . It's hardly a solidified release date but at least we know it's confirmed for this region and we're hoping it isn't a long wait. The first Dissidia featured well-known FF icons squaring off against one another in a flashy arena of sorts; it wasn't an RPG, but the character progression was very reminiscent of a role-playing game. In that way, it kinda satisfied two sets of fans. The highly anticipated sequel will boast a bunch of new faces, too, including FFXIII heroine Lightning and FFIV's popular character, Kain. Returning Dissidia combatants include Tifa, Sephiroth, Cecil, Terra, Zidane, Golbez and Onion Knight. We'll get basically the same gameplay but the developers will be implementing an all-new assist feature; this will let you summon backup allies. If the chips are down, bring in a partner to help!
We'll let you know whenever Square-Enix decides to issue an exact US launch date but until then, just imagine the epic confrontations that lie within…
