Last month, Square Enix collected all of the relevant information of the game since its announcement at E3 2017 and condensed it into one list. You can find a brief overview of that below:
Characters — there will be a total of 28 heroes and villains. My main right now is Terra (FFVI), but I want to master Ramza (FF Tactics). We just recently announced that Noctis, Cloud of Darkness (FFIII), and Golbez (FFIV) are joining the playable cast as well! The full roster can be found here.
Stages — a total of 14, from Final Fantasy I through Final Fantasy XIV.
Gameplay — it’s a three-on-three team fighting game where you control one Final Fantasy legend and party up with friends or other gamers online.
Combat — you’ll need to master the bravery combat system — which is a bit different than traditional fighting games. We’ve created some handy dandy battle guides on how you too can understand and master this combat!
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is set to launch for the PlayStation 4 on January 30, 2018.
