    We’ve got Bahamut now, maybe Noctis incoming?

  • One Eco

    It’s not even the same Bahamut…
    Noctis will appear in the game, but this year’s roster additions will be all villains, sorry.

  • One Eco

    In today’s strem they announced a change in the Bravery Break mechanic, some buffs and nerfs that affected the summons, they revealed Bahamut as a summon, a new BGM selector that FINALLY lets you to choose what music do you want in the multiplayer mode’s battles and details of the Theatrhythm All-Star Carnival event that is actually in-game.

    Plus, they said at the end that next month’s update will include another character. It will be a villain, since last month they said that all the characters that will be added this year are villains… EXCEPT one special surprise character that can be either a villain or a hero.

  • One Eco

    Oh, and I think a new tournament will be happening soon, but I could be wrong… I had connection problems when they were saying that.

  • CROWDS

    God I hope the surprise character is Angeal.

  • Jesiah Grant

    Holly crap that screen is crowded!!! I hope we can turn off some of the HUD. O_o

  • This REALLY needs to come to PS4 already!

  • Bobby/Godless

    lmfaoo

  • Soldier Blue

    and PC!

  • Yuntu

    ItΒ΄s most likely not how it will look on consoles.

  • SNK

    Not yet. It needs more characters before that happens or we’ll have another Street Fighter V situation.

  • Eyoi

    I think I’ve seen somewhere that they wanted 50 characters before they released it outside of the arcade.

  • Eyoi

    I mean.. XV Bahamut isn’t the only Bahamut. This isn’t even the XV Bahamut design. Noctis will most likely be released as promotion for the PS4 release which is a long way down the line.

  • Christian CΓ‘ceres

    I know you have said this before many times but, I really need to play this game, seriously. I’m from Chile btw πŸ™

  • Codes McGodes

    Still waiting on Kam’lanaut, Vayne, Barthandelus, Gaius and Ardyn >:[

    And SEYMOUR.

  • One Eco

    If SE is clever, the villain representing the XIII trilogy would be Caius better than Barthandelus

  • Codes McGodes

    I’m not against Caius, but but since Dissidia is basically a love letter to the series, I’m sure they’ll be adding a XIII villain before adding one of the sequel characters. Likeable or not, Barthandelus is the one who most fits that bill.

  • One Eco

    Even then, it appears that Cid Raines is actually taking the role of villain representative from FFXIII in other FF titles, like Theatrhythm All-Star Carnival. So in Dissidia this character role would be filled either by Caius or by Cid Raines… The main problem of Barthandelus is that he isn’t loved by the FF fandom, imo.

  • Codes McGodes

    Also to your point about Theatrhythm. Theatrhythm has a much larger cast than Dissidia since the characters are so much simpler to make, so they can ultimately cover more ground. But even going off of the “dark” unlocks, they have Seymour listed for FFX and Gabranth listed for FFXII. Granted I’ve always felt that Seymour is FFX’s main villain, but all the same Jecht was chosen for Dissidia in his place. And I don’t think anyone would argue that Vayne is FFXII’s main villain, despite the fact that Gabranth always seems to overshadow him. His and Shantotto’s appearances in the original Dissidia were intended to be special, being that one was an anti-hero and the other was an anti-villain, each without a real opposing counterpart.

    Ikr, I was joking

    It was a joke

    Oh, then LMAO

  • One Eco

    Don’t get me wrong, but Barthandelus story wise in FFXIII might be important, however his role could have being done by the rest of Fal’cie in that game and the ending would be pretty much the same.
    Plus, the religious/government lider turns out to be the main “demon” in the plot, where I’ve seen that before? Ah, yes: in Final Fantasy Tactics…

  • One Eco

    I would prefer having both Eald’narche and Kam’lanaut as FFXI villain representatives x’D
    The Zilart bros are too good to be bad (??

  • Jesiah Grant

    I hope so aye, the clutter takes me out of the game a little. Maybe if we cant remove it perhaps we can shrink it?

  • Caliburn

    They have about 24… now I think. At least as I counted them on the wiki. So that’s half of the characters. Some more would be great. All the old ones should probably be implemented, and some new ones are already there. Noctis should probably be there as well. I look forward to playing Dissidia again. Dissidia is the only portable game I have over 100 hours in (Current playtime 420 hours, on my most played save… God dammit I have no life.)

  • Codes McGodes

    Well you could just as easily argue that Seymour wasn’t the main villain, the cult of Yevon was. Vayne wasn’t, the empire was. Gaius wasn’t, the Garleans were. Like Barthandelus these characters were all either the leaders or the most direct-in-conflict with the main party, which would be what makes them all the main villains of their respective titles.

  • Codes McGodes

    Oh I agree. They definitely share the spotlight. Though if we could only have one, my vote would go for Kam’lanaut given his important social standing within Vana’diel and the fact that he’s much more charismatic and ‘in-your-face’ than his brother.

  • One Eco

    All the previous characters will be in, don’t worry (however, I doubt about Feral Chaos since they said that they won’t have characters that walk on 4-legs).

    However, as a player of this game, forget all the things that you know about gameplay in Dissidia, this game is totally different in comparison with the previous ones. The only things that it’s the same about gameplay is that attacks are divided in Bravery attacks and HP attacks, nothing more xD

  • One Eco

    The problem about the HUD is that all is necessary there…
    At least, if we get 1 vs. 1 battles the only HP bars that should be there would be the one from your character and the one from your rival.

  • One Eco

    Agreed

  • Khalid Alhindi

    so when we will play this game πŸ™ ?
