See Squall’s Kingdom Hearts Look In Dissidia 012[duodecim]: Final Fantasy

By Ishaan . February 16, 2011 . 9:01pm

More costumes! This time, the spotlights falls squarely on Squall…or should we call him Leon, since Square Enix are adding his Kingdom Hearts look to Dissidia 012?


As reported earlier in the week, people in Japan will be able to grab Squall’s Kingdom Hearts costume via a download code in the April edition of V-Jump magazine, which goes on sale February 21st.


Europeans will be able to access the Leon costume via the Dissidia 012[duodecim]: Final Fantasy legacy edition. We don’t know yet how Square Enix will distribute the costume in the U.S.

    Wow that is a pure win costume looking ao forward to using it when i get my limited edition copy wooo PAL ftw!!

  • I bet there are gonna be a lot of custom quests revolving around that screenshot with Leon and Cloud.

    • All ending in slash, no doubt.

      Oh crap, we’re giving Ereek ideas now…

      • Yui

        Says the one editing the yaoi manga? ;P

        Don’t kill me! XD

  • alundra311

    Wow! Look at them belts!

    • Bakuryukun

      You don’t want your pants to fall in battle, that would be embarrassing.

      • Zero_Destiny

        Yes and likewise it would be a shame if his wrist fell down . . . O_O Wait a minute? Belts on your arms? Yeah that makes sense. lol

        • alundra311

          It’s for his gloves.

          • Zero_Destiny

            How could I be so Foolish?

          • alundra311

            At first, I thought it was for his wrist too. But then I did some very serious and deep thinking and realized my error. Shame on me for thinking it’s for his wrist.

      • Masengan

        It must be hell undoing all that just to take a piss though.

        • Bakuryukun

          Maybe the Toilet can “Draw” the magic spell “Urine” from Squall and once he gets 100 of them his “Smell” stat will be MAXED! =D

    • 7 belts unless you consider the three straps at his thighs making it 13. Then there’s also 6 zippers.

      • d19xx

        You know what those zippers hold? MORE BELTS!

        • alundra311

          You can never have too many belts. :D

      • The ultimate protection against fangirls.

    • PrinceHeir

      hell yeah Leon FTW :)

  • kupomogli

    I would have rather had Squall’s alternate costume be the costume he wore to the dance on FF8.

    • WizardoftheBlueOrder

      …wasn’t that essentially his SeeD Uniform?

      Which is already available as the 2P outfit.

      • MGSBigBoss

        I’d prefer Squalls outfit when he went on his mission with Seifer and Zell. On the beach. towards very beginning of game.

  • Testsubject909

    So… are we going to be seeing added costumes for only post-FF6 characters or what?

  • DanteJones

    Definitely like the KH version of Squall the best aka Leon. So much win!

  • Fonic

    Looks better without the fur. Definitely my favorite of the DLC costumes thus far. I might main him again after all.

    • MGSBigBoss

      The fur around the waist in Dissidia killed that costume and that stupid waist cape thing on one side of his leg. I liked his original FF8 costume.

  • Too bad Lean still has his emo side. Here’s hoping for a different voice set.

    • MGSBigBoss

      Squall and Leon (if you want to consider them almost separate personas) are not emo. Cloud is emo. Squall is a loner that believes independence is needed to never expereince the short-comings of allies, friends, and family. Emo is a word thrown on everyone now. Is Tetsuo from Akira “emo” as well?

      • You tell me. I never watched Akira. True, Squall is resolute because of solitude, but it usually pushes his friends away from him. Regardless on how strong he is, he can’t really accomplish everything by himself. (Squall vs. Ultimicia AND Garland anyone?) That doesn’t mean he didn’t change a little. Leon is that rendition of Squall that actually did change. He has friends by his side and he still kept his resolve.

        Forget the emo part, but now that you mention Cloud, I still feel pissed that Cloud was associated with Lightning. Looks are one thing, but Lightning is far more human than Cloud.

        • SE should return Cloud back to his character in FF7 rather than AC.

          • Hmm, that has me thinking Duodecim Cloud is a Mako poisoned version and was easily Sephiroth’s slave.

          • Fonic

            Yeah, AC pretty much ruined his character. All the development in FF7 down the drain for moody stares and angsting over things that had already been angsted over.
            He was a fairly interesting and well-developed RPG protagonist, especially for 1997. His more laid-back attitude towards the end of the game should have carried over into any “sequels” they made.

        • Guest

          Watch Akira. Now.

          • Joanna

            Actually read the manga. The anime doesn’t cover the whole story and leaves key character and themes underdeveloped.

        • If you value your sanity, don’t watch Akira. But watch it anyways, just to get the feel of it. And also, Paprika. Work of genius

  • If I do play as Squall again, this may be the costume I may end up keeping him in.

  • Honestly, I think this is Squall’s best design. If you could take off those stupid three belts on his left arm, it would be perfect.

    And yes, his Leon persona is way better than his annoying original “friendship sucks” attitude.

  • Oooooh, I always loved this costume
    He looks taller as well, or is that just me o_O

  • sweet, I might even have 2 change squall out of his Seed outfit… He looks badass in his school uniform ;D

  • Guest

    Nomura has a belt & zipper fetish. I wonder if he laughs himself off the chair when designing these what with the absurdity of it all…

  • darkfox1

    Gotta love Kingdom Hearts Belts and Zippers :D

  • What if he has to go to the bathroom badly? He’s never gonna make it with all those belts…

  • KyoyaHibari

    :D I love that costume for “Leon”

  • D: I missed so MANY updates!! DX Thank you laptop for hating me and rebelling against me.

    That aside….
    Smexy “Leon” is Smexy. <3 xD

  • ToSeektheChosen

    Nomura over-acceessorized him, maybe that’s what makes him look so badass.
