Dissidia 012[duodecim]: Final Fantasy is scheduled to release in Japan on March 3rd, and Sony and Square Enix are commemorating the game’s release with a special PSP bundle, named “Chaos & Cosmos Limited.”


As you can tell by the name, supplies of the Chaos & Cosmos PSP bundles will be limited. These will go for 22,890 when they release in Japan, day and date with Dissidia 012. The bundle will include the system and the game in UMD form.


By itself, Dissidia 012 will cost 6,090 yen when it releases on March 3rd. A PlayStation Network download will be priced lower at 4,980 yen.

  • Oh wow. This looks better than the Dissidia PSP. Though they could have at least done something better for the back.

    Quick question… why are video games so expensive in Japan?
    (Just did a quick currency conversion…)
    6090 yen = $73 CAD

    • That’s because the JPY is rising in value. The CAD actually seems to be rising too albeit at a slower rate than the JPY. A little less than 2 years ago that same amount of JPY would be approx. $85 CAD. At the end of the week of Nov 2, 2007, when the CAD was strongest over the JPY in the past 10 years, that same amount of JPY would equal approx. $50 CAD.

    I actually think there’s a bit too much going on with the art on the front of the PSP. One side is more than enough, but both the left and right is a bit excessive and “busy” looking. They should have put it on the back, maybe.
    I like how Chaos is more heavily shaded though, that’s a nice little touch.

    hot damn thats a sexy PSP

  • Oh dear, the front looks really crowded. It looks to me like someone just drew Chaos and Cosmos on the PSP’s face with a marker pen. Still prefer Nomura’s art..

    • Aoshi00

      It’s like Amano drew it live or something, all it lacks in a signature :).. but anyway this is too distracting, that’s why I didn’t like the MGS PW camouflage one either, I like the way they do it for the DS where the design is on the outer cover, so this should’ve been on the back, and only has a Dissidia logo on the front.

      Too many LEs for the original PSPs alrdy, I think they should do at least one LE for the Go…

      • Yeah, they should’ve been on the back. The thumbs will just block the art if it’s positioned at the front. I think this deserves to be displayed in a display cabinet rather than for play

          I guess they wanted to advertise Dissidia with the back? Though that makes no sense, your hand gripping the PSP hides the Dissidia title.

          And the front would provide no knowledge to anyone what game it is unless you’re the player… Guess they wanted to emulate the sort of ‘wallpaper’-esque sides to non-widescreen PSP games via the PSP’s frame itself.

          Though… it does seem rather overly crowded… I’m sure they could’ve figured out some different piece of artwork for the front and applied this to the back, but hey. One way or the other, one part of the PSP would’ve felt somewhat crowded… Though, the idea of Cosmos and Chaos circling around the circular PSP logo at the back does feel far more appealing.

          • Ah well, one man’s meat is another man’s poison. Maybe they SE thought they released too many LEs which had art at the back of the PSP, so they’re just trying something different.

            Makes me wanna get custom artwork for my ageing PSP

  • PrinceHeir

    looks awesome :D

    Amano’s art FTW, square should use Amano’s art in every LE Final Fantasy Game ^^

  • thebanditking

    This PSP looks cool but I like the first one a lot more, too many systems rely on a black and white color scheme. Also they should have put the character art on the back so its not all cut up/off by the buttons..

  • Tokyo Guy

    Another Square game, another mindless PSP combo. It’s funny how they churn out this crap ad nauseum for Final Fantasy anything, yet when it comes to a game that needed more promotion and incentive to buy (i.e. The 3rd Birthday) they do absolutely nothing.

    Dissidia was a typical Square game in terms of sales: it was popular at release and then in no time at all there were stockpiles of used copies at stores. Additionally the price falls EXTREMELY fast.
