The long-awaited arrival of Final Fantasy XIII may still be some way off, but fans of Square Enix’s popular series will be able to get their teeth stuck into a brand new outing in the shape of Dissidia Final Fantasy this September.
The PSP-only title boasts the largest ever cast in a FF game, bringing together some of the most popular characters from the series’ rich history in an unusual one-on-one fighting game.
A limited edition collector’s version will also be available at launch, including a soundtrack CD, 48 page hardback artwork book, Brady Games miniguide and two lithograph prints .
“With so many favourite heroes and villains contained in one game, Dissidia Final Fantasy is certainly going to appeal to fans of the series,” Square Enix’s president and chief executive officer John Yamamoto stated.
“The action-packed experience is a real showcase for the PSP and is set to become an instant classic on the system.”
Those worried that Dissidia Final Fantasy would follow in the footsteps of FFVII: Dirge of Cerberus, which received an exceptionally harsh critical reception, should take comfort in the incredibly positive talk emerging from Japan, where the game has already been released.
Dissidia Final Fantasy will be released on September 4th.
