Don’t Worry We’re Getting Dissidia: Final Fantasy

image Even though Dissdia: Final Fantasy is a shoe in for Square Enix to bring over it’s nice hear official confirmation about a North American release. The wait for Dissida: Final Fantasy won’t be too long either. Square Enix has Dissidia: Final Fantasy slotted for a “mid-year 2009” release.


So, we’re talking summer-ish? That makes sense since it usually takes Square Enix USA six months to localize a game after it comes out in Japan. Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII came out in Japan in September 2007 and North America got it in March 2008. We probably won’t get any Dissidia: Final Fantasy potion soft drinks, though. Instead Square Enix has a set of Dissidia: Final Fantasy Trading Arts planned. Volume one includes Cloud, Squall, Zidane, and Tidus.


Why are all the Final Fantasy characters fighting? This is what Square Enix says about the story.


Cosmos, the goddess of harmony. Chaos, the god of discord. Reigning from distant realms, the two gods had gathered warriors from all lands to lead them in savage war.


Cosmos and Chaos were of equal strength. It was believed the conflict would last forever. However, the balance is now broken.


Those who answered Chaos’s call created an inexhaustible force. And under vicious attack without relent, the warriors fighting for Cosmos started to fall one by one. The conflict that has continued for eons is now about to end in Chaos’s favor.


The world has been torn asunder, sinking into a vortex of disorder. As for the few surviving warriors … their fates have yet to be determined.

    I love the SE trading arts figurines and i’m all for them. But why on earth does the first series feature only characters that have already had figurines of them made? (Aside from Zidane, IIRC.)

    I’m sure we’ll see a series 2 and 3 anyways, but its nice to know ahead of time. I want my Warrior of Light and Terra!

    I wonder if they’ll add more content like they did to other games.

    I hope they would include Jpn track, but chances seem slim when looking at other S-E games. If not I need to get the Jpn version, the cast is just too good to pass, w/ the exception of Kefka perhaps. The Eng. dub for Crisis Core was pretty good though.

    Off-topic, speaking of dual track, the US Blu-ray release of Resident Evil Degeneration is including Thai but not Japanese? Do they think RE/anime fans are interested in watching the movie in Thai rather than Japanese? I know Eng. is still primary, but this really made me want to cancel my pre-order. I guess the reason why they do it is they don’t want Japanese ordering the cheaper US version.. major bummer.
