Square Enix has officially announced Dissidia Final Fantasy NT, a PS4 version based on the Japanese arcade fighting game. Similar to previous Dissidia games, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT pits legendary heroes and villains from the Final Fantasy franchise together in epic and strategic battles.
Developed by Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT introduces squad-based battle gameplay by allowing you to wage war with over 20 of your favorite Final Fantasy characters. Combining unparalleled visuals, seamless gameplay, and your favorite characters from the past 30 years of the franchise, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT welcomes all gamers with three-versus-three battles and the series renowned "bravery combat system". While aiming for supremacy, call forth familiar summons like Ifrit, Shiva, and Odin to aid you and your party.
Unlike the arcade version, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT will feature a story mode which players will be able to experience through event scenes. The narrative will be written by writer Kazushige Nojima, who also worked on other titles, such as Fantasy VII Remake, Final Fantasy XV, Final Fantasy X, Kingdom Hearts, and Kingdom Hearts II.
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT will also include some exclusive PS4 features. This includes additional battle rules, an offline single-player mode, and a mode to create rooms that only friends can join. Despite this, the arcade version will continue to receive new updates first, which means that new characters and stages will become available first on arcade.
Finally, it has also been confirmed that Final Fantasy XV's Noctis will appear in the game as a playable character.
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT releases in Early 2018 on PS4. The game will be playable at E3 2017 from June 13 to 15.
