Next Dissidia Final Fantasy arcade character reveal set for March 7 By Erren Van Duine on February 28, 2017 at 11:15 PM

Square Enix is preparing the next character reveal for Dissidia Final Fantasy‘s arcade version with a special live stream next week. Scheduled for March 7 at 21:00 JST, fans can check out the latest character reveal complete with new gameplay.

The company will also host a Q&A session and chat about the latest version update with producer Ichirou Hazama and director Takeo Kujiraoka on hand to share all the news.

Recently the pair sat down with Famitsu to speak at length about the console version of Dissidia Final Fantasy.

“I want to spread the amount of enthusiasm for Dissidia Final Fantasy even more,” Hazama said. “In receiving the opinions of players, I get the feeling that people are becoming gradually more interested in the game, so I want to deliver it to even more people. While we’ll also be talking about the console version in the future, it won’t result in disappointing arcade users, as both can be sufficiently enjoyed. And there won’t be any delay in updates as a result the console version.”

    **crosses fingers**

    Please be Quistis. Please be Quistis. Please be Quistis. Please be Quistis.

  • Eyoi

    Probably Noctis.

  • Martian Wong

    Noctis?

  • Casper

    Noctis Lucis Caelum is the proper name.

  • Casper

    Dissidia better come to Steam, Ultrawide 1440p would be the tits man.

  • Dave Bordios

    NOCTIS! NOCTIS! NOCTIS! NOCTIS! NOCTIS! NOCTIS!

  • RAGDEVIII

    Over the top finishers please

  • ◎הÎsu

    Auron or Vincent.

  • PvP4FFXV

    Please let it be Angeal.

  • Andrew Brown

    Lol I love Angeal, but I highly doubt it. Zack has a better chance.

  • Artemis Polara

    Angeal’s best chance would probably be an alternate costume to Zack (Though then again the same could be said for Zack and Cloud)

  • Dominic Jonnathan Yu

    Gaius van Baelsar please

  • stevenm281

    ? who is that? Caius Ballad?

  • stevenm281

    So many characters I’d love to be included:

    Heroes: Vincent / Barret / Quistis / Kimahri / Balthier / Fran / Snow / Noel / Noctis

    Villains: Genesis / Edea / Seifer / Jihl / Cid (ff13) / Caius / Ardyn

  • Dominic Jonnathan Yu

    Gaius is from FFXIV

  • stevenm281

    Alright, I don’t know much about XI and XIV, I don’t really play MMOs, I try them, but none ever managed to keep me involved.

  • stevenm281

    I created my character, and I played for two months approximately, but I got bored.

    I see it as me as a FF character.

  • NotCarolKaye

    That’s a really good list.

  • MajoraMan28

    Genesis? Really? From Crisis Core?

  • Ryuke

    Yes to all of these! Apart from Noel, switch him out with Fang, and also add Tifa and Celes.

    For the villains I’d switch Genesis out for Gaius van Baelsar but the rest are great!

  • Ryuke

    Great pick! We have the Scions represented by Y’shtola, so having the Garlean Empire represented would be a great addition.

  • David Thornhill

    Calling it right now. It’s Emperor from FF2.

  • David Thornhill

    Too much FF7, not enough FF10.

    Besides, I bet the March 7 character will be Emperor from FF2.

  • stevenm281

    to each its own, I hate most of the X cast.

  • stevenm281

    The reason I included Noel is to have more option for dual wielders, I didn’t put Fang (while I love her) because we already got Kain, and I suggested Kimahri and Aranea for Lance users.

  • stevenm281

    yeah I love the guy

  • David Thornhill

    If anyone from X, I wanna see Auron added in.

  • David Thornhill

    Nah, it’s Emperor from FF2.

  • stevenm281

    I agree, but we already got Cloud and Jecht that uses a big sword, and I suggested Caius as well so I think, for me, to make an interesting gameplay addition, I’d had Wakka even tho I’m not too fond of him in general.

    We definitely need more Physical Ranged characters.

    So far its mostly either physical melee or magical ranged.

  • Ryuke

    Ah see that makes much more sense. I didn’t even consider the type of fighter they are, I just picked preferred characters, whoops! You’re right, Noel would add a dual wielder and more diversity to the cast than another lancer user.

  • Dominic Jonnathan Yu

    Yeah idk why everyone want noctis.. complete the villains first

  • stevenm281

    Also, back in Duodecim, when they announced Yuna, I was hoping that her X-2 outfit would make her switch from Summoner to Gunner, but heh.

  • Noctis or nothing. Its long overdue.

  • Evangeline Efrata Ngelo

    I know that it is very impossible for you guys. But i hope Machina Kunagiri from Type 0 can join Dissidia. He deserves for this no matter what. His battle style is very unique…

  • One Eco

    This month (according to the pattern) should be a returning hero… So either Tifa, Laguna, Yuna or Prishe since they were previous heroes and they are they only ones of the heroes introduced in 012 that are not in the game

  • stevenm281

    he would be an interesting character, we need more dual wielders.

    But I prefer Noel in that department, but I wouldnt mind having both!

  • David Thornhill

    Nope. Emperor.

  • David Thornhill

    Nope, Emperor from FF2.

  • One Eco

    The Emperor will be yes or yes in the game since he was in the previous games, however he won’t be added nowhere soon (the next returning villain will be added in July)

  • David Thornhill

    Pandemonium was added, so it makes sense for Emperor to be added.

  • One Eco

    FFIX stage was added in April 2016 and Kuja in January 2017, so Pandaemonium being added last month does not mean anything. They’ve been following a pattern when adding characters to the game, that’s why I’ll stick with the pattern too

  • Evangeline Efrata Ngelo

    Yeah… Because it’s to boring to see one-sword wielders like Firion, Wol, Terra. But why Square Enix didn’t think to put Machina in Dissidia? Even Opera Omnia that just put Rem (that always alongside Machina), King, and Ace? It’s unfair. Just because he ia the latest favorite among fandom but that doesn’t he will be forgotten like that because of the haters.

    So, where ia the legal survey about FF characters that supposed to join Dissidia?

  • Evangeline Efrata Ngelo

    Maybe it’s about the villains. Who’s next villain?

  • David Thornhill

    lol just wait and see. It’s definitely Emperor.

  • One Eco

    Well, I’ll wait to mock you if is not Emperor (and I will remind it to you forever *muahahahahaha*)

  • David Thornhill

    So…. You were saying?

  • David Thornhill

    told ya!

  • David Thornhill

    haaaaa!

  • David Thornhill

    TOLD YOU GUYS

  • One Eco

    Congratulations, the character you wanted has been added!
    Sorry ’bout my attitude!
    So, this year is going to be the Year of the Villains, which villain do you think it’ll be added in May?

  • David Thornhill

    What? No, I don’t really care for Emperor. I was just being realistic, that’s all lol.

    I do know that Rabanastre stage was added a while ago, so Gabranth might be added. Either him, or Golbez for randomness.

  • One Eco

    LOL good to know! I would like having Vayne over Gabranth, however Gabranth is pretty much confirmed since he is a veteran…
