Some likely choices for the new Dissidia Final Fantasy NT fighter include Final Fantasy IX’s Vivi and Final Fantasy VII’s Zack Fair.
Square Enix recently announced that on September 24th, they would reveal a new character for their fighting game Dissidia Final Fantasy NT. Said reveal will be done through an official livestream on Square Enix’s Youtube account. The stream is set for 20:00 JPT (7am EST):
While there has been no actual leaks so far as to who is the lucky candidate, rumors and hopefuls have been flying around the Dissidia community. Notable guesses include Vivi from Final Fantasy IX (my personal favorite) and Zack Fair from Final Fantasy VII.
Zack does have a bit more credibility due to Game Director Takeo Kujiraoka’s statement during a TGS interview last year. According to his own words: “The Japanese voice actor who plays Zack even came up to me and said he wants to appear in the game, so I think we’ll have to get around to him eventually.”
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT has been regularly getting new characters and costumes added, and a free trial version of the game was also launched by the company. Both Cloud and Squall’s Kingdom Hearts looks were recently added as well.
DualShockers also spoke with the game director about the future of the Dissidia franchise. For fans of the older titles, Kujiraoka stated he’d be interested in trying a more traditional one-on-one game but said it wouldn’t really be possible to implement anything like that in the latest title.
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is available now on PS4 and PC. You can also try the free-to-play version of the game on all of the previously mentioned platforms.
