The person at Square Enix who comes up with game titles must be stopped!
Today, the publisher announced Dissidia Duodecim Prologus: Final Fantasy, a PlayStation Network-exclusive downloadable prequel chapter to Dissidia 012: Final Fantasy. The ridiculously named PSP download will be released on March 15 and is similar to Capcom’s bite-sized Dead Rising 2 prequel, Case Zero. At $2.99, the game carries a bite-sized price to match.
Prologus will star Final Fantasy XIII‘s Lightning in her first apperance outside her original adventure. The events of Prologus will lead up to the beginning of Dissidia 012: Final Fantasy, which will be available for the PSP on March 22.
In addition to getting a taste of Dissidia 012: Final Fantasy, players will be able to unlock a variety of items in Prologus that’ll carry over into the full game. And everyone who purchases the prelude will unlock Aerith Gainsborough (from Final Fantasy VII) as an Assist Character in the full game.
