This is already a great year for fighting game fans. Street Fighter V is finally closer to the game it should have been all along, and Dragon Ball FighterZ is one of the best takes on a seminal, but terrible anime game.
It’s also the year that sees Dissidia Final Fantasy NT, the arcade-brawler released in Japan in 2015 finally hit consoles. Made in partnership with Koei-Tecmo’s Team ninja, it pits characters from past final Fantasy games in a three-on-three team brawl.
Here’s what it’s all about, straight from the Square-Enix’s mouth:
- FINAL FANTASY, everything you could ever want
Over twenty playable FINAL FANTASY legends to play. Over ten iconic battle arenas. And legendary summons.
- Welcome warrior, there’s a mode for all
A mode for every player, whether it’s competitive online matches or custom lobbies for friends only, offline matches versus AI, or training to learn and refine combat techniques.
- The more you fight, the more you gain
After each battle, players will receive experience points and gil. With that, players can gain new skills and freely customize their character.
- Only the brave survive
The bravery combat system allows a much deeper and more methodical approach to fighting games, separating luck from skill. The way to win is to garner bravery points before unleashing critical HP attacks against your opponent.
It’s out today, and is a delight for Final Fantasy fans. And we’re making the launch even better!
