Dissidia Duodecim Prologus Is A Paid Preview, Adds Aeris As An Assist Character

By Spencer . January 18, 2011 . 1:44am

image If you guessed the Duodecim Prologus trademark was for a paid demo, you were right! Square Enix formally announced Dissidia Duodecim Prologus at their press event. It’s coming to PlayStation Network now and it exclusively adds Final Fantasy VII character Aeris as an assist character to the final game.


Dissidia Duodecim Prologus will have an original short scenario (read: short storyline) and arcade mode. You can get Dissidia Duodecim Prologus for 300 yen ($3.75)


Clarification: If you buy Dissidia Duodecim Prologus you can use Aeris in the PSP game, Dissidia 012[duodecim]: Final Fantasy.


Update: Downloaded Dissidia Duodecim Prologus and it’s actually two files. After you purchase it from the PlayStation Store you get Dissidia Duodecim Prologus (244MB) and a Dissidia 012[duodecim]: Final Fantasy assist character file for Aeris (486KB).

  • Ouch…. A paid demo? Why SE whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy ;______;

    • Shadow_Raskolnik

      While I also dislikethe idea of paid demos it’s only about three bucks overall, not that bad.

      • It’s not that bad for $3.75, but unlocking Aerith for the final game only by having this demo is… Unless she’s also unlockable in the final game and this is just a pre-order bonus

        • Gelsa

          It’s a paid demo in the same sense that Dead Rising 2:Case Zero was a paid demo. It has a separate “mini-storyline” that’s not in the full game. At least that’s what I’ve read.

          • Yeah, I got that… I’ll just try it, and if it leaves a bad taste in my mouth, I wouldn’t buy anymore paid demos.. My main concern is whether Aerith will be available to everyone, or only to those who bought the demo.

          • Billy Añonuevo

            I’m also concerned about multiplayer. If Aerith appears in VS matches and you don’t happen to have the demo, that essentially means you’re just paying to unlock something that’s already on the disc.

            Any chances this’ll also show up on the US PSN before the North American release?

          • altho she can;t be playable in the game and they give you her as support that dons’t make sense ????

    • Because they want to milk your pockets! >:D

  • karasuKumo

    If she’s just a support in the full game I wont bother -_-

    • PrinceHeir

      i also wondered about this. if she’s only a assist character what’s the point of paying if you can’t even used her as a main? they better make aerith a playable character and not just a assist only, and she better have her own story too in the main game.

      • i hope she is playable that would be mega awesome i mean if they can allow yuna to like air dash and dodge their sure as hell can make aerith plus she was’nt all white mage she like had the highest magic out of the team and did deadly black magic to plus HOLY^^ **** i wonder if she would cast it like sephy did

      • Yeah but.. well.. For certain obvious storyline reasons, she won’t be able to fight. And besides, do you *really* want Cloud to turn emo – more than he already is – and whine all the time?

        I think it makes more sense that she’s an assist. >__> Then maybe Zack can chip in a few.

  • Why Aeris ? T_T I want Vincent! xD Or even Yuffie.. anyone, but not HER. I’ll buy it anyway, but… wait, she’s only Assist? oh..so.. it’s ok, I guess..^^” At least we got Prishe ^^

    • we already have cloud in his kh costume i think thats enough vincent now now lets not be greedy

  • She’s most likely just an Assist. Either way, she’s going to feel Hell’s Gate.

  • Looks like Tifa is going to have to pay Sephiroth again to get rid of Aeris.

    • joesz


    • It’s not like it would change much… and with “it” i mean everything related to Cloud’s relationship with people, maybe a little less “buhh! don’t talk to me >=(“, but it would still be pretty much the same

  • Zonic505

    So it’s taking the same path as Dead Rising 2: Case Zero. Paid demo, though its own separate game, which contains a story not in the full game & you get content that’ll transfer over.

    Fine by me. I just hope that when it comes to the US, it’s as cheap as well (as in under $5).

  • I guessed it, so I’m patting myself on the back ;P. Wait, am I gonna have to buy a fricking PSN Card?!?! GAH!!!

  • Who the fk pays for a demo? Ah, well…. we got Prishe! And Gilgamesh! Now all we need is one more villian…

  • I called this ages ago, while you were all thinking it was going to be some kind of prequel.


  • Currently downloading this as i type. 300 yen well spent!

  • I have the ISO if anyone wants it? PM me?

    • How I PM you?
      I almost dont comment but could you share your ISO?? plz =)

    • same here on the pm thing, i sent a request on twitter. this is for the ofw users right? or are you talking about cfw users?

  • It’s on the HK Playstation Store for 25 HK$ (~265 Yen), the network card points for that store are slightly cheaper too (via P-A).

  • If you have CFW on PSP here ya go http://www.megaupload.com/?d=JIQH6OE9

    • MrSirFeatherFang

      Haha, I used to but thanks anyway!

    • Guest

      God damn it my stupid job blocks that website I’ll have to wait till I get home : (

    • What’s CFW?

      • neon6

        Custom Firmware that lets you play games as long as you’ve got the Isos/Csos of the game saved on your expensive memory stick.

  • AERITH!!!!! YAY!!!! YAY!!! YAY!!!! Its a dream come true!!!! T^T I dont care if she’s not a fighter!!! she WILL assist me at all times!!! ^_^ Hopefully they have CGI of her too! ^_^

  • If “this guy are sick” gets in the dialogue, I’ll be one happy man.

  • i wonder if she is sore about the whole dieing thing, or if they will play it off like “what are you talking about?”

    so she is pretty much a cheer leader?

  • I really wish they would have included Zack as the second hero rather than Tifa or even an assist like Aerith. Oh well, beggars can’t be choosers I suppose.

  • D_A_W_N

    Aerith will always be making Appearances no matter how many time she dies that’s how freaken awesome she is xD

  • Don’t see this on PSN in the UK…. do we not have it? :(:(
