Square Enix will be revealing yet another new fighter for Dissidia Final Fantasy’s arcade version on August 27 during the game’s tournament finals event in Japan. According to Famitsu, the character in particular has not yet appeared in previous installments of the series, and will launch along with new content titled “Battle of the Gods” featuring Cosmos and Chaos.

Additionally, the company will be revealing new information on the upcoming Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: All-Star Carnival and details on a new smartphone title during a Special Session event at the show. This second part of the event runs from 17:00 to 19:30 JST and will feature appearances by Ichirou Hazama, Takeo Kujiraoka, and Tetsuya Nomura.

Since the game’s launch in arcades, a handful of characters have been added to the roster including Kain Highwind (Final Fantasy IV), Kefka (Final Fantasy VI), Garland (Final Fantasy I) and even Ramza (Final Fantasy Tactics). Dissidia Final Fantasy is scheduled to remain exclusive to arcades through the later part of this year.

    Wowww, a NEW one finally~

  • AzazelSC

    You are forgetting Kain from FFIV in that last paragraph.

    Wouldnt suprise me if it’s noctis

  • I know its in right now to never be impressed by anything. But legit respect his hard Square is working on this and some of their other recent games. Not all of them are for me but part of me still kinda loves them.

  • Dennis Gurkis Johansson

    Actually im hella impressed by every project square has accounced the last two years, feels like they have finally gone back to the roots of final fantasy and it feels like they have a good feel about the emotions they want to contribute to their players. Excited as hell about ffxv, VII and IX are my favourite game experiences ever and XV feels just as personal and epic.

  • Dennis Gurkis Johansson

    Been excited for XV since 2006 fyi

  • Randy Marsh

    Minwu or Sazh I guess to finally fulfill Nomura’s fanboy dreams?

  • Icarus Arkwright

    I would love to see someone from Type-0 join the cast!

  • Justice V

    Hopefully Zack or Genesis. Though I know that’ll never happen heh. Most likely will be a XV character, similar to how Lightning popped in Duodecim right around the time XIII released.

  • Randy Marsh

    Can’t be Noctis, too early and they wouldn’t want to spoil FFXV in any form. It was the same reason Lightning wasn’t in Dissidia like originally planned, since FFXIII wasn’t out. Lightning appeared in Dissidia about a year or so after the game came out.

  • SuicideSancti

    I’d be psyched if it’s Auron. sighs…

  • Luna

    Zack could get into the game eventually though, since he could represent Crisis Core. They mentioned him in an interview and said they wouldn’t make him a Cloud clone if they ever did put him in. So, I wouldn’t count Zack out yet!

  • Höckernase

    Noctis ;D

  • Martian Wong

    Me too, I had a crush on her…

  • ITALOpkg

    I think Dissidia is an amazing game, I just wish it was a Open World like the old FF’s.

    I know, I dream to much on this comment

  • Jesus Christ

    She’s beautiful

  • JohnCaseyCB

    I still think that UI looks a bit shit. D:

  • sonofa birchwood

  • Young Link

    It’s Noctis.

  • alef321

    not only the looks , it’s usefulness is shit ,pretty much covers the whole borders =/

  • Mina-P

    Celes, Ashe, Balthier, Auron, or Seifer. Anything else and I will be hella pissed. Oh vivi is acceptable as well carry on then

  • *sigh* There’s an arcade near me that gets some cabinets from Japan. They’re up to date on their fighting games. Then even have School of Ragnarok (also by Square Enix), yet still no Dissidia. 🙁

  • Justice V

    Nice. I can keep the dream alive heh.

  • Justice V

    Ah. Guess my memory of her inclusion was off.

  • Benjamin Tan Cheng Wei

    I don’t think it’s Noctis because it will spoil the game of ff xv. What I think is highly possible got to do with the new outfit the rest of them just got, so I’m thinking it might be Caius.
