You Put A Tarutaru In My Dissidia: Final Fantasy (Update)

By Spencer . November 24, 2008 . 6:11pm

image Dissidia: Final Fantasy still has some surprises even after the character roster was revealed and one of them is going beyond Final Fantasy I – X. Shantotto, a quest NPC that plays a key role in the Treasures of Aht Urhgan expansion pack, will make an appearance in Dissidia. The announcement was made at Vana Fes 2008, but what she does in the game and if she is playable hasn’t been revealed.


Shantotto will also get a new scenario in Final Fantasy XI entitled A Shantotto Ascension – The Legend Torn, Her Empire Born. In this side story Shantotto returns to Windurst claiming she rules an empire. Her “new” personality shocks her friends and adventurers in the MMO set out on an adventure to discover what happened to her. Perhaps, this will be a connection to Dissidia: Final Fantasy’s story line?


Update: Screenshots on Impress Watch make it look like Shantotto is playable! Thanks for the tip QBasic!

    I’ve only played FF XI for a total of 2 months so don’t have much affinity toward its chars. Cute though, voiced by Hayashibara Megumi no less :)

  • Shantotto’s actually a pretty significant character in every part of FFXI’s storyline thus far, including Treasures of Aht Uhrgan. Of all the ones they could’ve picked, I’m satisfied it’s her.

    Wonder if this means the Shadow Lord will be included too? I’d be okay with that.

    Although I am not really sure how “new” of a personality her claiming to be an Emperor is or why any of her friends would be shocked at such behavior. Shantotto is pretty full of herself right from the start. Of course when you are one of the greatest members of the greatest race in FFXI thats to be expected.
