Rinoa Heartilly from Final Fantasy VIII joins the cast of Dissidia Final Fantasy By Tony Garsow on July 10, 2018 at 8:34 AM

The newest character to join Dissidia Final Fantasy is Rinoa Heartilly from Final Fantasy VIII. Revealed during an official broadcast this morning, Rinoa will use her slingshot weapon, magic attacks, and her faithful dog Angelo in battle. She can transform using her Angel Wing ability, and dons her white ballroom dress. You can see her in action in the video below.

Rinoa Heartilly will arrive in Dissidia Final Fantasy Arcade in July, and then in Dissidia Final Fantasy NT in late August.

You can check out the rest of the season pass additions here.

Via Famitsu:

  • Adding Angelo makes her a breath of fresh air.

  • ahh Rinoa, the Rebel Princess

    I feel like they made her head rounder than what I remember, her hips seem a lot wider too, assuming that she is the same age as in the original game

    although I do not like her stuck-up little brat personality in retrospect (too bratty for me to want to get to know in real life), I think it compliments her role as a rebellious teen well within the story of the original game, the same is true for both Selphie and Quistis, I think that both their personalities where portrayed well

  • Miqote

    How the hell is she a fighter?

  • KittyKatz

    I wish in Dissidia have gun user such like Prompto, Vincent and Irvine Kinneas

  • I still think her weapon is just…bad

  • some people be thinking “Rinoa cannot fight, Rinoa weak”

    with that crossbow looking attached to her arm, Rinoa will whoop yo ass!

  • Randy Marsh

    The same way Terra is a fighter, magic spam like a boss.

  • Noneofyourbusiness

    The same way she was in FFVIII.

  • Noneofyourbusiness

    I’m glad they kept him as part of her moveset.

  • One Eco

    Laguna is confirmed to return.

  • stevenm281

    Laguna is meh, I’d rather the ones he proposed, or even X-2 Yuna.

  • One Eco

    With Laguna confirmed to return, I cannot see Irvine getting in.
    This also applies to Vincent, it’ll happen A LONG time until he can enter since Tifa and Aerith are both Dissidia veterans and Zack is mildly confirmed at this point.

    About Prompto, sure! He’ll have to wait, though. Ardyn is going to be added yes or yes, and Aranea is both a fan-favorite and one of the characters that the developers have mentioned the most, so, she is a fan-favorite of the dev team too.

  • NoctLightCloud

    I’d love to see another dragoon like Estinien or Aranea.
    And Caius! The XIII series literally has ONE character. Better add him…or Serah.
    And Vincent. The most badass gun user. I think Prompto won’t happen (we don’t even have Ardyn), so Vincent would be cool, at least.
