Vaan Appearing In Another Final Fantasy Game, Probably Dissidia 012

By Spencer . September 21, 2010 . 11:38am


The leading man of Final Fantasy XII… Revenant Wings is going to appear in another Final Fantasy title. Bobby Edner, Vaan’s voice actor, tweeted about doing voice work for another Final Fantasy game. He confirmed in another tweet that he is indeed reprising his role as Vaan.


One, perhaps likely, possibility is Vaan will be a character in Dissidia 012[duodecim] Final Fantasy. However, the tweet was done back in May. Maybe Dissidia 012[duodecim]’s North American release isn’t too far away. Square Enix confirmed the PSP game for the West earlier today.


A hat tip and a lump of Nethicite to DiipuSurotu for the tip!

  • The Final Fantasy playgirl poster boy is gonna be back~? :O

  • pridesin

    Seriously….They decided to put Vaan in the Dissidia ???
    FF12 would been fine without him. I do not get why would they even bother dealing with this character.

    • MGSBigBoss

      No FF12 would NOT be fine without Vaan. You sir are wrong.

  • Dissidia 012 is going to be great

  • joesz


  • Roses4Aria

    Hmmm. I honestly have no problem with Vaan. There were just other characters from FF12 that I liked better.

  • karasuKumo

    He’ll probably be in it, can’t see why not. I personally hate him lol

  • Guest

    I really hope he’s just a support character. Like why him? why not Basch, Ashe, or Balthier?

  • Worst excuse of a, “protagonist” in the history of Final Fantasy titles ever. Not ONLY does he have as much involvement in the story as random NPC 3, but he has also never heard of what a shirt is, apparently. If you were at least SOMEWHAT cool, I could understand, but Vaan is anything but that…

    Should have just given us Ashe instead, guys.

    • karasuKumo

      He has no manliness, Lightning has more manliness than him. I’d rather have Ashe too, Vaan would just be running around looking “fabulous” XD.

    • MrRobbyM

      I agree. Game would have been a million times better if the story focused more on Balthier and Fran.

    • Agreed. I’d rather see Ashe, Balthier, Basch, Fran or even Penelo in Dissidia 012.

      I never even used him in my party when I played FFXII, unless I absolutely had to.

    • Damn…

      Why does the internets hate Vaan so much?

      I like him since he is like the most regular character in Final Fantasy. I’m quite sick and tired of characters who can kill everything just by twirling their weapon around.

      • Guest

        I don’t hate him, I just don’t think he should be a Dissidia character

      • Sakurazaki

        Probably because his involvement in the game was pretty much nothing. He’s a useless character, story-wise; almost as if they needed a random kid to play protagonist/observer because the roles of other important characters were already planned out.Vaan’s design is pretty basic, but doesn’t look bad, imo. It’s just that Reks looks 10x better.

    • SolidusSnake

      Tidus, star player of the Zanarkand Abes, says hi.

  • I think it says “Revenant Wings” – not XII, though, I’ve never played Revenant Wings so I don’t know how much different he is other than actually being a sky pirate.

  • Give me Basch, Vossler or Balthier if you don’t want females.

  • MrRobbyM

    WHY? I want Balthier or Basch :/

  • Code

    rar, go away Vaan your taking up a character slot that can better spent on someone like Celes >O>; Seriously though, if there going to pick a character from FF12, I just think there were better characters to pick from.

  • shion16

    maybe he will be captain basch form dalmasca

    • Only if you don’t believe Ondore’s lies.

      • shion16

        xDDD you made my day

  • Eddie

    I have no problem with Vaan being in the game. I didn’t see anyone as a main character in final fantasy 12. Although Vaan and Penelo had like two lines. They were more like the face of the game and thats it to me. I really think final fantasy 12’s main focus was the story rather than characters. Some people just spoke more than others. I am just happy that one of the six characters is getting a chance to be in the game.

  • Ereek

    Edit: Never mind.

    I think some people need to look up the formal definition of Protagonist when used in Literature and Drama, though, not everyday speech. Vaan definitely fits the definition of protagonist – despite not being the central character.

    Penelo was my favorite XII character. She and Larsa were adorable together.

    • Roses4Aria

      I loved Larsa and Penelo too. Maybe they’ll add them to Duodecim as a team. :)

  • i liked his design (no homo)….not much else its like kuja’s semifaggotry + tidus’ body + cait sith’s usefulness = vaan. I more or less tolerated him than actually liked him

  • Vaan, ZOMG! I love him!!!!

  • UGH! I knew they had to include somebody from the disaster that was FFXII in Dissidia, but I was hoping, at the very least, it’d be Balthier, the only character in your entire party with even a hint of personality. God, I despise Vaan.

  • Why not Ramza? or any character from the original FF tactic, because they really represent the beginning of Ivalice Saga.

    • 4shiki

      >FFT>the beginningWhat.EDIT: Wait, do you mean “the beginning” as the first Ivalice game they did or as the first in Ivalice’s timeline? Because you’re wrong if it was the latter (FFT takes place millennia after FFXII, RW and the time travel portion of FFTA2).

  • SpiderCVIII

    Honestly, like many have said before me, I rather have Balthier than Vaan.

  • vadde939

    Ouch. So much Vaan hate. I never played FF XII but he was a decent enough protagonist in Revenant Wings.

  • Guest

    Vaan is so much fail ugh…

    • You, take those mean words back! Vaan is hot er awesome and we all know it. Vaan and Tidus in one game, can it get any better (oh wait Lightnings in here too), Hope would make this a wonderland for me, lolololol

  • karasuKumo

    There’s hope for Ashe and maybe a few more characters from XII :D

    “Nomura: Unlike the first game it won’t be the same number, or one character from each game, but it’s not something as small as 3 or 4. It’ll be a good number, so please look forward to the follow up reports.

    Takahashi: We’re not just selecting characters at random, but focusing on giving them a different feel when playing and on character popularity.”

  • 4shiki

    I love Vaan so I hope this is true (also because I think it’s funny watching people bawwing, heheh).Oh, and…am I the only one who found the rest of the main cast (with the exception of Penelo and Fran) okay but at the same time overrated-ish? Especially Balthier (I’m not sure how to word exactly this feeling…).Maybe I just need to play FFXII again since the last time I did was in 2007, huh.

    • Bruce

      i’m not a fan of balthier either , he’s cool just no cool enough

  • Bruce

    i rather play as ashe , vaan simply sucks because he has nothing going around for him , and i don’t remember him in the game at all ….

  • I don’t see any reason why vaan shouldn’t appear in the new dissidia game. I mean he IS the main protagonist of FF12 series after all, besides he’s not that bad, I mean yeah the story doesn’t revolve on him but still, let’s give the guy a chance :)

    I feel sorry for Vaan though,unlike Cloud and the rest, he isn’t that popular :(

  • I would play as him if and only if his alternate costume is the one from FFTA2.

  • MGSBigBoss

    Wow i posted a comment and it said pending approval, nothing derogatory and siliconera didnt put it up. It would of been end all to those who complained about Vaan. But I guess they are haters as well.
