  • Young Link

    Someone pick up the Phone because I called it!!

  • Danel Eder

    Oh sweet lord. So many simultaneous orgasms.


    sweet lawd he looks hot

  • StrikeParchment

    Wow, he looks really good in this game. It’s the pauldrons, the really broad shoulders makes him look a lot more imposing than he did in the PSP Dissidia games.

  • TektosBasics

    So much for PS4 port lol. At this point, it might not even happen.

  • Tom

    Looks really nice but lost it’s Nomura-charm. Like all other characters lost their original charm in this game.

  • All Seeing Eye

    I’d rather have Beatrix and Celes.

  • The greatest villain in FF history! Badass.

  • Wait for it. Might happen.

  • Shoulder pads always characters look like football players to me. I like a swift slim agile character.

  • StrikeParchment

    Sephiroth to me always walked that thin line of being both slim and agile, yet broad and imposing. I wasn’t a fan of his Dissidia design as it leaned too much to the former. The front front standing pose for this game looks like it leans too much to the latter, but in movement I think it hits that balance.

  • Stonespear

    To me they all look the same with different armour/hair.

  • At 1:17 random audio blunder.

  • Well, they do look shinier…

  • The look almost exactly the same as they’ve appeared before. I’m no really seeing any differences.

  • Stonespear

    I meant that all of the characters look the same. Androgynous faces that all look the same.

  • Yuntu

    actual not overused characters? haha :p

    no but seriously the characters so far have been lacking in terms of putting in new ones, Ace is cool though

  • Yuntu

    as in Nomuras artstyle for mainprotags?

  • Yuntu

    Wait for it. It will happen. Next year is 30th anniversary of FF, gonna be big.

  • Stonespear

    More or less.

  • Yuntu

    yeah thats a problem he has

    hope for a new char designer for XVI to change things up a big

  • Sephiroth was the only villain I played as in the original Dissidia.

  • NoctLightCloud

    He looks fantastic!!

  • NoctLightCloud

    Replacing Nomura? Now THAT would create a shitstorm the company might never recover from.

  • Sephiroth

    Naturally, I’m in full support of this.

  • Stonespear

    It’d make for an interesting change indeed.

  • I see what you mean. Sometimes she the stance and pose of the character can be more in tune with how the character is more often perceived. What fits best. He’s still plays well it seems.

  • Yuntu


    they litterally died after IX or XII …. oh wait no they didnt and people love those 2 games

  • NoctLightCloud

    You’re right. With the only difference that when IX was released, there was no internet coverage, so no shit storm. And how can we forget the hate XII received? (“Looks too much like a MMO” and more) – I loved both games a lot. I try to avoid internet critics of games anyways since nowadays the trend seems to be about criticising every detail of a game.

  • Yuntu

    Yeah they do. But Nomura not doing the character designs wouldn’t cause a shitstorm. Or else XIV wouldn’t perform as good as it does.

    And well XII really has a big cut following by now~

  • NoctLightCloud

    I think most gamers consider the 2 MMOs an exception anyways, so no one would really complain if they look different anyways. However, for a “main” title (off-line), you might know how sensitive the fandom is.

  • Yuntu

    Of course, still a diferent char designer wouldn´t cause a shitstorm :p
