    Prishe, Tifa, WoL and the Emperor’s are my favourites :). I’m surprised that the Phantom Train is a stage, it looks awkwardly narrow.

    • If you can fight three ghost inside this train with a three-four member party, then it is possible. XD

      • karasuKumo

        Very true haha. Yuna fitting all those summons in it will be tricky though XD

    • I know right? The stage should be set on the rails while being chased by the train.

      • karasuKumo

        That would be so cool, “Now here’s my finishing move!” *gets hit by train* ^^ lol

        • Laguna’s like “THE GREATEST. ATTACK. EVA–” *mauled by train* lol

  • I don’t know whether you’ll get to fight on the Phantom Train, I think that it’s a mode of transportation on the World Map.

    But it would be cool if they make it a stage where the battles are fought from a 2D perspective (Something like the first Kratos and Zeus battle from GOW3) with the Phantom Train chasing after them

    P.S. Yuna you’re looking so beautiful.

  • I cannot wait for this game!!!

  • lightningrook

    Classic Bartz and WoL are probably my favorites. I don’t care if it’s based off the original Amano art, Bartz looked ridiculous in the first Dissidia.

    • Seconded. Even though Bartz’ first costume was inspired by Amano’s art and the original sprite, the costume felt like he was not Bartz.

      • i loved bartz official costume i mean his sprite version just looks boring and reminds me of the warrior of light with brown hair :(

    • Exkaiser

      Definitely agree. They were my two favorite characters in Dissida, and seeing them get costumes based on their sprites makes me pretty happy.

  • neocatzon

    oh, my.. where is Yuna?

    • Wiccan1109

      Its hard to tell since she lost so much weight to fit in it, she looks like a different person, but shes on the far left in the wedding dress.

      • neocatzon

        so it’s not Terra? Damn, must finish V fast and play VI

  • Testsubject909

    Boo. No new character from FF6? (Yes, very late complaint, but since the roster is now pretty much carved in stone.)

    Come on! I’m still hoping for Edgar here…

    Mind you. I’m very happy with Gilgamesh.

    • I suppose Edgar would’ve had a play style similar to Laguna and Vaan, although I’m satisfied with Tifa but it would’ve been really interesting if they had put in Sabin or Zell I suppose they would’ve allowed for a more combo based combat, also they didn’t include Beatrix the bad-ass Paladin.

      • Have they not announced anymore characters? Would have seemed only fair to add another FF character to the other titles. Hell, thief from FFI, Sabin or someone in FF6… the heeeccckk?? =((

        • From what I’ve read at andriasang, Square has plans of introducing a new characters then again it could also be a formal unveiling of Gilgamesh.

          Then again there could also be some secret characters.

          • I feel like it has to be a new one, since Gilgamesh is pretty much out there now…(at least, I’m just being hopeful that it’s a new VI character xD)

          • Testsubject909

            Wait, this could be all wrong…

            This could be their plans of making us pay 5$ per new character DLCs…

        • Games that didn’t get characters got levels. FF1 got the World map and, quite possibly, Desperado Chaos (Chaos is originally from FF1, so he DOES count). Every FF Is repped evenly.

          • Testsubject909

            I don’t think Cowboy Chaos counts…

    • kupomogli

      I’ve wanted Edgar or Sabin, but seeing as they’ve already added two more fist characters I’d rather go for Edgar.

  • rye

    wait. wait. wait. how many playable characters are there? will there be more unlockable or are they the final roster?

    • There were 22 playable characters in the first one plus 8 new ones, so that’s 30. Since the game’s coming out soon this week in Japan, it’s safe to say that it’s the final roster.

  • Christ

    I want FF6 characters!! This can’t be happening, at least put a assist only character…

    • Agreed. Imagine Interceptor running across the battlefield xD

      • Fonic

        Interceptor always killed the Phantom Train for me when I was a kid so he’ll always be my favorite assist, whether he’s in this game or not.

        • Testsubject909

          But that means, if they added interceptor. Wouldn’t it be impossible to play on the new FF6 world?

          I mean, Interceptor would always just rush in and destroy the entire Phantom Train world.

          • Fonic

            Good point. Alright, I forgive SE for leaving him (and Shadow) out; this time…

  • Methylene

    Look everyone, it’s Fantastic Fraulein Prishe. SHINING SUMMER SAMBA

  • why is there like characters missing from that pictures loool theres like what 20 characters there looool or are they not putting the colour swap ones

  • PrinceHeir

    Yuna is sooo lovely :D

    wow lightning on black palette? sooo awesome :P

  • Where’s Terra and Squall and Garland and Firion and Cloud of Darkness and Cecil and ExDeath and Sephiroth and Kuja and Jecht and Vaan?

  • Code

    rar, I don’t see Jecht! But I’m looking more and more forward to Duodecim as it draws near >w<' March is going to be a really thick month for how many games are coming out, but I'm still looking forward to some new content/characters in Dissidia.

  • I noticed they’re missing a couple in there O.o
    I sure hope there’s some secret characters or some DLC characters or maybe tomorrow’s little live broadcast thing is actually for a new character, not Gilgamesh…
    VI and IX!! Let’s go! Fingers crossed!!

    • Yu_TheKing

      Omegosh I can’t wait for this game. Hoping for IX’s Beatrix :D

      Personally I think they went all out for the female characters since the First Dissidia was lacking.

      • Yeah actually, to be honest, instead of Edgar or Shadow or other male characters from VI, I’d rather have Celes for some reason. They were lacking in female characters like you said. Plus, she can be unique in her own way.

  • ToSeektheChosen

    Is that Lulu behind Basch? I love Tifa’s costume btw, but not so much Tidus’s.

  • Kris

    Man, is that Golbez’s actual character model? It looks like he’s just drawn into that group.

  • Ultimate_Tifa_Fan

    Tidus: *sees Ulti*
    Golbez: NUUUUU SHE’S MINE!!!

    I see how you roll now Tidus.

  • Testsubject909

    You know. I forgot to mention but… Oh Yeah!

    Look at them up top, all pimp like. There’s my duo of chaos and insanity, Kefka and Gilgamesh just chilling in their sweet treads. Damn right they’re on top of them all.

  • I remember using phoenix down vs the phantom train,priceless and makes this boss very easy
