Square Enix just announced the Dissidia Final Fantasy game coming to the PlayStation 4 and players are more than eager to get their hands on the upcoming title already. The gameplay trailer reveals how the game has changed from the arcade to console, but there’s still so much more we’ve yet to know about Dissidia Final Fantasy NT.
From the get-go, players are probably clamoring to see the full roster of the game. According to Square Enix, the game will have over 20 playable characters and we might have an idea on who these characters are. Since the Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is a port of the 2015 arcade title, we can expect the lineup to be near identical. The characters from the arcade versions are:
- Final Fantasy I – Warrior of Light and Garland
- Final Fantasy II – Firion and The Emperor
- Final Fantasy III – Onion Knight
- Final Fantasy IV – Cecil Harvey and Kain Highwind
- Final Fantasy V – Bartz Klauser and Exdeath
- Final Fantasy VI – Terra Branford and Kefka Palazzo
- Final Fantasy VII – Cloud Strife and Sephiroth
- Final Fantasy VIII – Squall Leonhart
- Final Fantasy IX – Zidane Tribal and Kuja
- Final Fantasy X – Tidus
- Final Fantasy XI – Shantoto
- Final Fantasy XII – Vaan
- Final Fantasy XIII – Lightning
- Final Fantasy XIV – Y’shtola
- Final Fantasy Tactics – Ramza Beoulve
- Final Fantasy Type-0 – Ace
These are the characters that make up the roster of the arcade version of Dissidia Final Fantasy. One of the confirmed newcomers to the franchise is none other than Noctis from Final Fantasy 15 and he’s set to make his debut in Dissidia Final Fantasy NT. The roster is pretty impressive so far but fans are looking for more characters.
The prequel, Dissidia 012, had a total of 31 characters. Meanwhile, the arcade version only had 23 fighters. As with most fighting games, fans are wishing for an expansive roster. The characters missing from the arcade version are the following: Cloud of Darkness, Golbez, Gilgamesh, Tifa, Ultimecia, Laguna, Jecht, Yuna, Prishe, Gabranth, and Feral Chaos.
There were some new faces introduced in the arcade version but the overall count of the roster was smaller as compared to Dissidia 012 and some fans were disappointed. Hopefully, Square Enix tries to include all of the playable characters from the series in Dissidia Final Fantasy NT. If they use the arcade’s roster and only add in Noctis, then fans might not be too fond of the game.
