Cecil and Golbez officially join the cast of Dissidia: Final Fantasy

ffd Thanks to scans of Shonen Jump we have a first look at Cecil and Golbez, his villain counterpart, in Dissidia: Final Fantasy. This probably isn’t a huge surprise since Cecil and Golbez represent the core story of Final Fantasy IV best. A blurry second image shows Cecil can switch between being a good willed Paladin and his Dark Knight alter ego. No details are given on what abilities each class has, but it’s easy to imagine Cecil shooting waves of dark energy at the expense of his HP when he’s covered in he Dark Knight armor.


Now that these characters are confirmed Square Enix can move on to bigger mysteries – Final Fantasy V and VI. While Square Enix has not said if Cloud will be in the game it’s hard to imagine Tetsuya Nomura developing Dissidia: Final Fantasy without him.

    I’m hoping Cloud isn’t in it for some reason…

    Some things worth mentioning from the Jump article:

    -Paladin Cecil is an agile character good with air attacks and balanced all around with physical and magical attacks.

    -Dark Knight Cecil works better on the ground and has higher defensive properties.

    Not too shabby if you ask me.

    I’m hoping FFVI has Terra, as I feel she’s the best to represent FFVI overall. As for FFVII, why hide Cloud? If its not Cloud, then I’ll just be puzzled.

    FFVI’s character should be Sabin, although we’ll probably end up with Locke or Terra….
