Dissidia Final Fantasy (Arcade)

Dissidia Final Fantasy (Arcade)

Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is one of the hottest mobile games on the market. The free-to-play RPG, which teams up characters from different Final Fantasy games and sends them against monsters from throughout the series’ history, only launched in the United States a couple of weeks ago, and it’s already amassed over one million downloads.

However, Final Fantasy: Record Keeper isn’t the first game to pit Final Fantasy characters from various games against each other: that honor goes to Dissidia Final Fantasy, the 2008 fighting game for the Sony PSP. In Dissidia Final Fantasy, two Gods, Cosmos and Chaos, summon characters from various Final Fantasy games and set them to work battling for control of the universe. The game was well received, despite the fact that a one-on-one fighting title is a radical departure from the traditional Final Fantasy role-playing games. A prequel, Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy, arrived in 2011.

Now, it looks like another Dissidia game is on the way, and this time it’s being spearheaded by Koei Tecmo’s Team Ninja, the development studio behind Ninja Gaiden and Dead or Alive. Unlike previous Dissidia titles, the new version is being developed for arcades, with a three-on-three combat engine and over fifty characters plucked from Final Fantasy lore. While the previous entries in the series focused on the mainline Final Fantasy titles, this time around every Final Fantasy title is fair game; new fighters include Y’shtola from the MMORPG Final Fantasy 14, and Ramza from the excellent spin-off, Final Fantasy Tactics.

Dissidia Final Fantasy Arcade Machines

The arcade version of Final Fantasy Dissidia will run on hardware based on the PlayStation 4, and Sony Computer Entertainment Japan president Atsushi Morita revealed that Sony and Square Enix are currently discussing a console version of the game. However, a Square Enix producer said that the title would be arcade-exclusive for at least a year, if not longer. There was no mention of a Western release for either the arcade or console version of the game.

This isn’t the first collaboration between Square Enix and Koei Tecmo. Previously, the two developers teamed up on Dragon Quest Heroes, a hack-and-slash combat title that combines the gameplay of Koei Tecmo’s Dynasty Warriors series with the world of Square Enix’s long-running role playing franchise, Dragon Quest. Dragon Quest Heroes came out in Japan this past February to positive reviews, and sold over 594,000 copies in its first week alone. Dragon Quest Heroes is currently the second-best selling PlayStation 4 game of all time in Japan.
