The third game in the Dissidia Final Fantasy series has been available in Japanese arcades since 2015, but this morning, Square Enix confirmed it’ll be released for the PS4 in Early 2018 as Dissidia Final Fantasy NT. In development at Team Ninja, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is a team-based brawler that “pits legendary heroes and villains from the Final Fantasy franchise together in epic and strategic battles”:
Offering strategic online and offline play, players can select from over 20 legendary characters and familiar summons, including Ifrit, Shiva and Odin, to bring into three versus three battles. The game also brings back the Dissidia series’ unique “bravery combat system,” alongside unparalleled visuals and seamless gameplay.
The first trailer for Dissidia Final Fantasy NT has been embedded above, and Square Enix has announced plans to further unveil the game at this year’s E3 Expo. Geoff Keighley’s E3 Coliseum will host a panel for the game featuring Producer Ichiro Hazama, Director Takeo Kujiraoka, Echo Fox’s Justin Wong, and Kenneth “K-Brad” Bradley on Tuesday, June 13, at 6:15 PM (Eastern Time).
