In a new live broadcast that aired last night, Square Enix revealed that the latest character for the arcade version of Dissidia Final Fantasy is none other than Cloud of Darkness, the iconic final boss of Final Fantasy III.
The broadcast – which was broadcast across Youtube and Niconico on October 3 at 20:00 JST – is officially the 12th such stream for the game, also featured Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: All-Star Carnival heavily, in celebration of the arcade rhythm game’s one year anniversary.
Cloud of Darkness was one of the original Warriors of Chaos for the PSP version of Dissidia, and will be making her return to the series now. From the trailer (above), it looks like her fighting style is based heavily on magic and her tentacle strikes. She can dish out damage with both tentacles while also firing out dark projectiles at enemies.
For now, Cloud of Darkness will strictly be for the arcade version of Dissidia only, but there has been an announced PlayStation 4 port that will be released some time in January 2018. Make sure to stay tuned for any future updates.
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is out now in arcades, and is slated to be coming to the PlayStation 4 in January 2018.
