Square Enix On Final Fantasy X-3, The State Of Final Fantasy XV, And Dissidia

By Sato . April 8, 2014 . 11:48pm


This week’s issue of Famitsu magazine features a special article called “The Truth of Rumors 2014,” where the top brass of Square Enix took it upon themselves to talk about the latest rumors such as Final Fantasy X-3 and a possible sequel for Dissidia Final Fantasy. (Thanks, Game-Jouhou)


According to the report, Square Enix reiterates their earlier response to western media, when they said that Final Fantasy X and X-2 producer Yoshinori Kitase currently isn’t working on a Final Fantasy X-3.


On the subject of a possible sequel for Dissidia, series director Mitsunori Takahashi says “I definitely want to make it.”


Square Enix producer Shinji Hashimoto says that the development of Final Fantasy XV is going smoothly, and they just about wrapped up the new scenes for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix, which is nearing its final stage of development. He also says that they should be revealing more information about the game very soon.


We’ll have more on the rumors later this week, when this week’s Famitsu issue gets published.

  • Tenabrus

    this is stuff we already know about, so the famitsu issue will touch more upon these subjects or is that what it says?

  • Manny Being Manny

    They went out of their way to say that Kitase isn’t working on X-3, not that it isn’t in development at all? Isn’t that not a denial that it could be in development since someone else could be making it?

  • Roberto

    a new dissidia is awesome
    hope for new characters for V,VI and XII

    • tyhburger

      If they were to make a new Dissidia it would probably be after the release of XV. Yay for new characters! :D

      • Brendon Mitchell

        they could release dissidia at any point and have XV characters, they are clearly already designed from trailers

        • 324234

          Didn’t stop them from excluding Lightning from the original Dissidia.

    • SMT

      VI and IX didn’t get any new characters for 012, so these two games are top priority IMO (There’s not much to add to I-III… maybe II, but Warrior of Light and Onion Knight is already an amalgamation of the four playable characters).
      I mean, Vivi is just BEGGING to be playable. And I’d forever be in debt to SE if Sabin is playable and has a move where he suplexes a train.

      • Federico

        Maybe they could add a diffrent playable class from I and III.

        • SMT

          Although the “Warrior of Light” takes much after the fighter, it’s based on the original artwork, and he’s basically all 4 of the warriors of light, so technically he represents the full party. And the Onion Knight already represents the “ultimate classes” from the original III, able to change to both Ninja and Sage (They were not as balanced as the DS remake, they were better at everything compared to any physicalmagical job).

          For III they can add a villain, like Xande, but then that just begs the question of “why bother who cares” because it’s an insignificant addition.
          Though it could work along with a nerfed playable chaos as a FFI rep… The actual one and not the Feral type. Or an elemental fiend.

      • BalmungX

        With just these two additions,you already made me hype for a game that don’t even exists,put auron and Snow alonside these and i’m sold. Bravo ,sir

        • SMT

          Great picks from X and XIII! And Vincent, and Faris (I always like repeating my idea of making her a “Blue Mage” making her the Bartz version of Chaos characters, in the hopes that someone from SE sees it), and… ahhhh, this self hyping is not healthy! XD

      • SerChief

        FRAN!!! She would be sooo much fun to be! And think of the costumes :D

    • Revorse

      Faris or Galuf for V. Setzer or Celes for VI.

    • JoJo_718

      Celes and Locke from VI, Aerith and Vincent from VII, Vivi from IX, Auron from X, Balthier from XII and Noctis from XV, would be awesome!

  • りんごタルト@エスカのアトリエ

    Weekly Squeenix hate thread.

    • Herok♞

      Come on people need to vent somewhere, why not here?

      • Aspenharls

        But that’s what Gamefaqs is for.

        • Seraph

          Or /v/.

          • Or any other Blogging Hosting system ever made.

          • God

            First rule of /v/ you never talk about /v/… or was that /b/?

    • I love this post.

  • AAa

    New Dissidia? It’s Okay…but FF X-3??


    • LightningFarron19

      They already said that X-3 isn’t happening. Learn to read. >_>

      • Kaitsu

        They’re not working on it now. Is what it says. It’s not debunked yet.

    • dragoon_slayer12

      I actually enjoyed the story and wish they would expand on it one way or another

      • Ferrick

        except that the novel of 2.5 made readers go “the hell were they smoking?”

      • Federico

        If you’re talking about the audio drama then yeah i agree. I felt like people overreacted a bit on that. The novel on the other hand was just terrible.

        • I really liked the Audio Drama. But the Novel is all kinds of Mental Illness in Tangible, Printable form.

  • Kaihedgie

    And we definitely want it


    I would enjoy having a Final Fantasy Dissidia game for the PS4 and Vita (Mainly the PS4, with the system’s potential the game could be extremely well brought out, plus it would give me an awesome RPG Action/Fighting game to enjoy)

  • Nanaki

    Thanks for sharing this, Sato!

    • Sato

      Anytime, Nanaki, aka Red XIII!

  • chibiwall

    Dissidia 3? Cmon Square, can you feel it? It’s time for an exclusive vita game, I know you know

    • Aspenharls

      “Can you feel it now, Mr. Square?”

    • Herok♞

      I feel like Square doesn’t know that the Vita is a thing.

      • Gemlit

        I would be happy if they still made it for the PSP. I know Vita is a thing, but I don’t have one.

        • Harvey Tejada Loto

          they stop making games now on psp

    • Ronldbx6

      Exclusive!? That would be awful!

  • Malon

    A new Dissidia is always welcomed.

    • dragoon_slayer12

      Ps Vita would be lovely, but ps4 would be amazing.

      • Anthony Hadow

        Agreed Dissidia is always welcomed but Dragon Quest games would be even nicer

      • The Watcher

        No PS3 love?

        • Abysswalker90

          Sorry, PS4 needs a lot more love than 3 does.

          • Ronldbx6

            As a PS3 owner, I don’t want to miss out. I don’t plan on buying a PS4 right now.

          • 324234

            You’d be missing out on a better PS4 game then or later if they made it on PS3, and it’d be out ages from now anyways.
            (not that it wouldn’t be Vita)

          • MasterofMidnight

            Slightly prettier graphics isn’t worth investing in a whole console version over. I think people could live with a PS3 version. Me included.

            Of course, Vita would be even better. It’s been ages since I’ve bought a game for that system.

          • bkaSwordz

            that may be true, but it may be much easier to develop for on ps4 than ps3, due to the architectures, so it may come to the ps4 due to ease of development alone. not to mention it would likely not be out for at least two years, at which time alot more of the ps3 install base will have upgraded

          • domonkun

            This is Square Enix, not Atlus, so yes, prettier graphics means PS4 > PS3.

          • Abysswalker90

            PS4 doesn’t have any games that I like, I don’t want to waste my money on one.
            I’m not going to spend my money on a PS4, therefore I don’t want the games I like to be released on it.

            Do you not see the paradox?

      • DarkLight

        Agreed,most likely ps vita though.

    • DarkLight

      Like your profile pic,Manaka.

      • Malon

        Hehe, I like it too, thanks. :D

        • DarkLight


    • Ouryu

      I hope the new Dissidia isn’t a story with Lightning.

      • 012 kinda did that… and even then it wasn’t completely focused on her; it was more on the new characters– which she was one of.

        I don’t get this anymore, why do people feel the need to bring up something they themselves hate every time?

        Does this not get old the 300th time you read or post something like this?

        • Ultimaniacx4

          They don’t want to admit it but love or hate, Lightning has a special place in their hearts that they just can’t ignore.

        • Roney Desousa

          The thing is not everyone hates or dislikes Lightning or Final Fantasy XIII game. Final Fantasy XIII was the 4th best selling Final Fantasy game. I personally loved the whole series. But, I understand that it should have had a bigger emphasis on all characters, as apposed to the new characters.

          • Lastlight

            They focused on Warrior of Light in the original Dissidia
            In 012 it was Lighting
            My bet is that in a newest dissidia they would focus on the newest character(s) probably Noctis (for everyone) or Class 0 (For everyone who isn’t Japanese)
            P.S. If Zack isn’t in that game ima flip.

          • I’d love Zack but he’ll play like Cloud– I think the key to getting more characters would be a different playstyle.

          • Lastlight

            i just feel like Zack is the Bi*ch boy of FF7. He’s always in Clouds shadow (Hell even Crisis Core is in FF7’s shadow)
            I feel as if Zack would be in the middle of Squall and Cloud Not as heavy hitting as Cloud but not as “soft’ as squall (don’t get me wrong squall is a problem especially when I use him) After all Zack doesn’t hit to kill, especially when he received the buster sword. He used the bunt side. And by the way I see him using a standard issued SOLDIER blade which would make him a lighter hitter than cloud…..just my two cents.

          • My thoughts exactly even though I like Zack much more than Cloud.

          • Same here, I’d choose Zack over Cloud any day.

          • Harvey Tejada Loto

            yeah it will be cool if they put zack

          • Kemal Koçak

            He’d be a skin for Cloud at most I guess.

          • Lastlight

            ….That’s just insulting :(

    • LaserVision

      I really think a PS3/4 version with online play is the only way to go if they want a real multiplayer community

      • Lastlight

        It should stay on portable consoles
        I really hope it stays on the vita
        And its its cross consoles the vita owners should get a bonus or something…but that’s my two cents.

    • Ric Vazquez

      Amen, here, have all my likes.

    • Deva Ashera

      I just wonder if they’d put on Nintendo 3DS since the console is selling better then the Vita and they can re-use the PSP assets, or put it on Vita anyway, or perhaps even consoles, which would be amazing..but unlikely.

  • Rocco

    I say they shouldn’t make any more new FF until they get the 8-years-in-gestation XV out of the door. And leave Yuna and Tidus alone already, they deserve some peace after bringing the company so much money.

  • Jerry Hu

    Dissidia 3, please make it. Fantasy X-3, please don’t make it. You will destroy my wonderful memory.

    • The Watcher

      How does it destroy your memory of a game that never existed in the first place?

      • landlock

        I’d like to see X-3, the more set in that world would be nice.

      • Brendon Mitchell

        He is clearly taking about X/X-2 ……

    • Astraye

      It can’t be worse than X-2.

      • Alestaos

        I liked X-2 its battlesystem was amazing for its time, and after X, it was nice to have a fun not to heavy atmosphere game. Even if it was a little like Charles Angels it still was a fun game and gave Yuna some fun which after X she needed

        • Astraye

          I love its battlesystem too but i didn’t love its universe, what the world has become, srsly Yuna a popstar ?

          • Alestaos

            She had to earn her keep somehow?lol. But yeah i know what you mean i think if the game opened with something alittle different like an amalgation of XEternal Calm and then reasons behind YRP, its charles angels style might of been better recieved. However after playing X i guess X2 was cut lose phase. I kinda understand the popstar part more the reasoning behind it psychologically. But i can see what you mean regardless

    • Harvey Tejada Loto

      dissidia 3 on vita would be awesome

  • Shippoyasha

    I really wish they took a chance with X-3. The problem with SE nowadays is that they NEVER take chances anymore. They’re right up there with Konami, Capcom, Sega and others. Just take a chance and try to make great games and stop being so terrified of failure. Just be bold and earnest and hopefully the end result will pay off graciously.

    • Herok♞

      People don’t want them to that chance but then again no one really wants anything anymore.

    • buddyluv324

      After having played the Beta version of Final Fantasy 14: ARR and played bits of Bravely Defualt, I would say SE is starting back on the right track are are gradually realizing their past mistakes. I do hope they continue in making more of the right moves and take more chances on their future games.

    • Ethan_Twain

      I dunno. I feel like the Final Fantasy games have been pretty bold. FF X scrapped overworld maps, pushed voice acting and lip syncing, and built the entire game to scale. Then XI went multiplatform MMO. That was pretty bold. Then XII went massive open world, scrapped random encounters and turn based combat, and strained almost all of the anime out. THAT was pretty bold. A bunch of people hated that.

      A bunch of people also hated XIII, but good luck finding three games out there even remotely like it. It was a new thing. A brave thing.

      You know what I don’t think is bold? FF XIV. Bravely Default. Games that fit neatly into their genres and “innovate” only in how slickly they present the familiar game systems and tropes.

      You know what is bold? Turning Legacy of Kain into a multiplayer shooter. Like, does it even matter if it’s a good multiplayer shooter (which it is)? All anyone cares about with that game is how different it is from what came before.

      • Shippoyasha

        I don’t disagree. But a lot of those efforts were from 10-15 years ago. Many, many eras back in terms of gaming.

        I just feel that they are always finding ways to shy away from risky, bold projects the past 5, 6 years. The constant complaining over how making high definition games are hard to make, and all the weird graphics in presentations about how difficult it is to cater to audiences and etcetera. They just haven’t been giving off the impression that they want to talk about the difficulties of making games than just daring to make games again.

        Every time they make statements destroying the dreams of the fans, the more I lost respect in them. Making X-3 after so long would be one of the riskier things they can attempt, but I wish they would give it some more thought.

      • Lol every experiment only leads to more people bashing it for little reason and wanting the same stuff over again.

    • Ouch My Head Said Dionysus

      Square were *so* creative during the end of the 90s. I miss those weird experimental days when we’d see stuff completely out of left-field like Musashi, Einhander and Parasite Eve.

      • But can they afford doing that in this era, where so much risk and little chance for reward is put in new creative IPs?

        I dunno… I’d like it, but I honestly feel at this point everything SE does is lose-lose, everyone seems to want old school classical turn based, open world RPGs now, and anything without that is bad.

        But hey, I might be wrong. Just saying so much more money and risk seems to be put in game development over the years. More layoffs, less risks get put in to play it safe.

      • King Chibi

        Except when SE tries to make a new game you guys complain how its not turn base and medevil like FF1-5. BD gets a lot of praised because its nostalgic yet FF15 gets yelled at

        • Ouch My Head Said Dionysus

          Way to generalize, especially when I haven’t made a negative comment about a single game. I like Bravely Default for what it is, but I think FF15 looks incredible, personally.

    • EX+

      Why? Why should they make X-3 now of all times? The game was released 13 years ago and we still haven’t gotten the game that was announced 8 years ago, FF15.

    • Is making *another* sequel to a game within an extremely extensive franchise really “taking a chance” though?
      I do agree on how a lot of the big-name companies in Japan (and the West) are playing it really, really, REALLY safe these days though. Seems most of my favorite games are coming from smaller companies.
      (Note, of course, that I understand why big companies have to play it safe… Games these days cost so much money to make, and often take years of effort. It’s not like the old days, when it was five people who put something together in half a year with funding from a few successful weekends at the pachinko.)

  • Mαdασ「マダオ」

    I really Hope They make one for the PSVita, never enjoyed a game on my PSP the way I enjoy the 1st Dissidia & Duodecim.

    PLease Square Enix!

  • Prinnydoom

    A new dissida would be amazing.

  • Guest

    As I’ve always said, create a new Ivalice main FF game with Matsuno or Ito at the helm and I’ll be willing to marry you again, Squeenix.

  • Kawashima

    Please no X-3, after reading the comments on an earlier article about the novel, I’d hate to see the game after that

    • Daniel Bui

      Its even worse if you’ve heard the audio drama.

  • Makoto Yuki

    Dissidia 3 will definitely take my money for sure, been a fan of it since the first one

  • TheSegaMan

    A new Dissida would be amazing. I would assume the PS Vita would make the most sense seeing the first two were on the PSP, but I would love it on consoles like the PS4 too.

  • Yan Zhao

    Why the hell do they even need a X-3? X-2 gave the story a proper and happy conclusion already. If anything give a sequel to some of the more deserving games, like 5, 6, or hell, a REAL SEQUEL to 7 and not some dumb spin-off.

    • Daniel Bui

      It’s because of the stupid audio drama that they tacked on to the HD Remaster. It pretty much continues the story, and by god is it such a downer. So people are demanding that they either make a X-3 to fix that story or retcon it.

      • ogopogo

        Not as bad as the 2.5 novel where Tidus brag about the size of his “sword” repeated while leering at Yuna’s “nice body” (Tidus’s word) then they proceed to have sex in the middle of a storm which made them both maroon on an island because there was no one sailing the ship. This is not even the worst part but I’ll spare you the detail because they’ll potentially ruin the games for you forever.

  • Christ

    Hate mail, yes! here’s mine
    Don’t give a shit about FFX-3, buuut, Dissidia, yes please, make it NAO, not just “possibly”! All the Squeenix rumors are <> and so on for the last 6 years. And the only facts are ‘we are finishing some remade, milked shit we did 10 years ago, with new graphics and some extra shit scenes!’ WOW, much amaze.

  • Masa

    Dissidia for ps3 and vita with cross play, would love so much.

  • Seven of The Scions

    I want the new Dissidia will have system like Kingdom Hearts, where we can travel between Final Fantasy worlds as ‘town’
    we create our own character and meet FF protagonists as our party members.
    Because will be better to have our own story than to replay old characters background stories again and again.

    add Multiplayer missions (joins as drop in-drop out)

    Release for Vita and PS4 (i personally prefer PS4 than PS3 now)

    And more depth to it.


    Don’t give so much news and possible spoilers…


    We Love Surprise when playing games,


    • Ronldbx6

      Hmm, interesting.

  • Unlimax

    I don’t know how to feel about this , kinda crushed here :
    But Once they care about Parasite Eve franchise ( Not T3B )
    At this moment , the legendary Squaresoft is back to me

    • lackofstyle

      Did you not like T3B?

      • Ronldbx6

        A lot of hardcore PE fans didn’t like because they killed off Aya Brea and also they felt like the game was more like a 3rd person shooter. I personally couldn’t care and I’m still waiting on the 4th Birthday. I hope they still make it for PS3 or PS4. Would buy it in a heartbeat

        • lackofstyle

          Thank you! I actually really like the game, its better than parasite eve 2 imo

    • Ronldbx6

      I’m still waiting on the 4th Birthday. I hope they still make it for PS3 or PS4. I couldn’t care how many PE fans didn’t like The 3rd Birthday. I enjoyed it, besides the confusing time travel story. I also played PE1. I just need more of the PE universe! In any shape, way or form.

      • Unlimax

        Trust me , anything is acceptable in the PE Universe :]
        Except one thing = Motomu Toriyama

        BTW .. Aya >>isn’t Dead<< :P
        What you seen in this secret ending shows that the whole events that happens in this game isn’t from past or even from the present of Aya

        *Plot twist* Eve Brea is still on the Overdrive Machine

        Well played Aya *trollface* xD

  • Kotori Itsuka

    Is there a chance that Noctis could make it in a new dissidia game? And goddammit, I need a ps vita if a new dissidia is a ps vita exclusive. a ps3 version would be nice

    • EX+

      He’ll definitely be in if FF15 comes out before a new Dissidia (which it should). They wouldn’t want to spoil his abilities or downgrade him to keep his unknown abilities away from site.
      As for the systems, I would target a PS3 and PSVita version. SE already has their hands full with Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III coming to the PS4. You could say the same about the PS3 because of II.5 HD Remix, but it’s a remake and it’s almost done.

      • Kotori Itsuka

        oh right, there is a ps4 too….I wish someone would give me liek 99999999999k….I need a ps4 for FFXV and KHIII. life is a troll

        • EX+

          For a PS4 for those 2 games alone, you’d need $520.
          I don’t have a PS4 yet, so hopefully they announce an FF15 bundle at E3.

          • Kotori Itsuka

            omg, yes, they have to! I want a sexy noctis picture on the ps4

  • michel

    Dissidia (PS VIta?) with a story mode for the villains too!… :) But even without it, would be a minute one purchase for me… Too much fun, too much quality, too much gorgeousness….

  • Zer0faith

    Part of me does want this but another part fears that we’ll get them in the form of a free to play smartphone title.

  • X-3? No, thanks. I don’t want that, like at all. Please, no.
    What I want is a new Dissidia game, make it happen! ♥

  • megaten666

    FF VI-2 or Dissidia 3 for PS3 and Vita. Nothing more, nothing less.
    Your turn, SE.

  • Kroz

    Oh man if there is a third dissidia game i would flip out. one of my favorite sub series they have created. i still go back to 012 to play random matches every now and again.

  • Kornelious

    Good to know that KH 2.5 is almost done, and A new Dissidia on the VITA would be awesome, but I assume at this point that they would need to add more characters from past series.

  • urbanscholar

    Hmm so a new Dissidia is possible. Just they get things together and release things in a timely fashion.

  • Chido55

    Dissidia 3 for Vita!
    You already had your game sold before it even out.

  • fairysun

    Square, please listen to the fans comment in here. We would like a sequel to Dissidia. Preferably with more characters from more popular FF.

    Please use the picture as reference. :D

    • Lastlight

      They Need
      FF7 Crisis Core
      Zack Fair(Should have been in there since 012)
      Agrias (Need more females)
      All of Class-0 (The West needs to be introduced to FFT-0 somehow)
      Noctis (Thats a given)
      Nael Deus Darnus
      ….Thats all I can think about right now

  • shuyai

    “Final Fantasy XV is going smoothly”

    really? they pretty much said the something every year from 2006

  • 하세요

    Okay, I’ll buy a Vita if a new Dissidia comes out.

  • Fainaru Luna

    more Dissidia yes please!

  • kaotron

    I really liked ffx but honestly after x2 and the 13 trilogy I dont think square is any good at making sequels for the ff titles so an X3 would probably be a disappointment as well.

    • Mikari✘

      Well, I enjoyed Dirge of Cerberus and Crisis Core. Maybe they could stick to making spin-off-like sequels (with different gameplay and focus) and prequels.

      • kaotron

        i liked crisis core but never got to play Dirge of Cerberus since it’s one of those rare games that are still full price and cost more as they age.

        I feel like crisis core was mostly liked by many for the wrong reason though because it was a FF7 prequel.

        yeah, I also like when they try to mix it up, like it was a good thing that crisis core and dirge wasnt turn based.
        I havent play x2 in a long time so it’s hard to remember what I hated about i so much beside the dress spheres.

  • Ragna

    I would like see Dissidia add character FFXIV ARR Y’shtola and Gaius van Baelsar (Black Wolf)

  • CozyAndWarm

    Some Dissidia on 3DS or Wii U would be cool! I’m glad X-3 isn’t a thing though, after how XIII-3 turned out.

  • New KH 2.5 news coming soon? Really looking forward to replaying my favorite titles in High Definition!

  • Anewme…Again

    At this point i’m not sure if i want a X-3 or not.
    I would welcome a X-3 if Square would repair everything they fucked up with the novel and audio drama, but at the same times i can’t trust Square to do a good job with that.

    Dissidia would be welcome though.

  • Rogerrmark

    Dissidia was good, but I would love a traditional RPG with FF characters this time. Similar to Tales of the World, but better.

  • Neophoton

    Do want another Dissidia. I immensely enjoyed the first two.

    Aside from that, not surprised they’re trying to remain hush-hush on FFXV as per the norm.

  • if they make a new dissidia i would like some kh characters as guest appearances :P

  • King Chibi

    Gus you do know the only reason X-3 was brought up because it was asked in an interview. It was you the fans who asked.

  • Mikari✘

    Please, Final Fantasy VII-2

    Dirge of Cerberus’ secret ending could serve as base I guess.

  • Ronldbx6

    I would like to see a Dissidia 3, FFX-3, and where’s The 4th Birthday starring Eve Brea?

  • Instead of FFX-3 I would prefer a remake of other FF series.

  • HerosLight

    The fact that he is up for making a Dissidia sequel already has me hyped.

    Would flip-out if they announced Dissidia 3 during E3.

  • Ric Vazquez


  • yellowmage

    If they do make a third Dissidia, I have just two words: Shadow. Lord.

    Zeid would be nice, too.

  • A new Dissidia? Then, they should pick now as the time to use reps from the other FF titles outside the main numbered games. Sidegames, Spin-offs, BD, MQ, you know… more Final Fantasy.

  • As much as I liked a new sequel with a different spin than X-2 and even though I liked the concept art of Tidus and Yuna on the audiodrama Im very GLAD they are not making X-3 based on that incredibly BS novella: X-2.5.

  • Quan Chi

    2D sideways Dissidia with just fist/close range weaponed characters please:

    FFI – Monk
    FFII – Gus
    FFIV – Yang, Ursula, Edge
    FFV – Galuf, Krile
    FFVI – Sabin, Vargas, Shadow
    FFVII – Tifa, Vincent, Barrett, Rude, Reno, Elena
    FFVIII – Zell, Selphie, Kiros, Ward, Raijin, Fujin
    FFIX – Admarant
    FFX – Auron, Wakka
    FFXII – Balthier, Basche, Penello
    FFXIII – Snow
    Semi Boss = Neo Azul
    Boss Dark Titan, Vayne Solidor

    • Uh… Cosmos side could definetely use more mages though.

      • Quan Chi

        It doesnt have to be about cosmos or chaos though. Remember, dissidia was about to be named Ehergeiz 2. Could deal with new story with new enemies.

        • Maybe but I personally their original 3D fighter style and even with a different story the good guys need more mages.

          • Quan Chi

            Dissidia wasn’t about mages though. It was about lead sword characters. Also, you know dissidia is just a ‘mech’ game right?

          • Dissidia was about good guys vs bad guys, the first Dissidia was only the main protags and all happened to be swordmen so it was forgivable but then with 012 and forth they could definetely use more long ranged mages or gunners like Laguna, Chaos mages are also pretty darn cool although few and for Dissidia mechanics it works.

            And no idea what a “mech” game is.

          • Quan Chi

            Gears, Mechs, Gundams, ya know, the games that usually have giant robots fighting against each other. Dissidia is the play style that Gundam games always have. Evade and shoot. Limited buttons. Flying, floating, etc.


            Every piece of media is about bad guys versus good guys. Dissidia and 012 was about the main heroes vs the main villians. Basche’s brother was on their because it was on the logo of FFXII. He is kind of a main character and kinda not. Aeris is only a summon. And Shonatto was only there because the sword character for FF11 was too generic. Yu Yevon wasn’t on there because he was just a tick. The main bad guy on that game was Tidus’ father. Same deal with FF9. Necron wasn’t on there because you know nothing about him. And Kuja was basically the main villian.

    • Morricane

      So an oldskool Fighting Game? *o*

      • Quan Chi

        oh yea :)
        They already covered the powerstone type fighter and the mech fighter. Now it’s time for a current style fighter. square always has awesome artists for their serious type games.

  • Wesley Kenneth Houpt Mattingly

    Seems in all the hype for Dissidia people missed the blatant FFXV ain’t happening any time soon comment.

  • Nice Boat Quatro

    If X-3 is made, I really hope that novel is deemed as noncanon please

  • Dom

    IIII think they can leave Dissidia alone. BUT I’d like to see another final fantasy crossover game, hopefully on console this time so they can put more characters in there. It’d be cool to have it on PS3 and Vita, for those who want it handheld.
    But I’d like to see a new story, and honestly, new gameplay. It’d be cool to have 4 player battles aaaaaaand, I didn’t care much for the bravery system. Seemed waaaay too easy to one hit K.O an enemy, ya know? And I really hated the fact that the EX Bursts were kinda weak UNLESS you managed to throw in a bravery break during it. I mean, dissidia’s fun, still love it, buuut, that’s just my two cents that probably no one cares to hear XD

    FFx-3, I don’t really care, as long as that damn FFX 2.5 is NOT cannon. The audio drama (which I heard is the sequel to that novel), hmmm, I wouldn’t mind too much if that was a set up for X-3, buuut, nah, I dunno.


  • ffboi7

    Dissida on either Vita or PS4/One or PS3/360 would make me very happy :D

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    If they make a new dissidia I hope they make the story easier to follow

  • Sapitntapit

    Oh how I would love a FFX prequel that follows Braska and his guardians.

    • ffboi7

      That would be nice, but after hearing the bonus audio from the HD collection. I want to know what happens now! Don’t tease me Square D:

  • SomeLivingMusician

    FF X-3, not needed but it wouldn’t bother me that much if they went ahead and made it anyways. XV looks great so far and I’m hoping that the rest of the game is as good as it looks visually. Dissidia is one of my favorite fighting games of all time but I got really sick of fighting computers all the time so hopefully they can give us an online multi-player mode and maybe add Auron, Vivi and a new FFVI character to the roster. >.> Kingdom Hearts 2.5… I’m not the only one super excited to find out more news about it is coming soon am I!? *o*

  • Daniel Bui

    Square, regarding X-3, I would only want it if you fixed the mess you made with the novel and audio drama. That, or retcon the novel and drama entirely. Those two things are a huge stain to the great ending that X-2 delivered.

  • FreeLancers

    wonder how dissidia 3 story would be, (SPOILER!!) just in case (cause 012 new characters died/disappeared. Original story they defeated chaos and cosmos died and they got back to they’re homeland.) So how will the work out. Anyone got some examples.

    • Akemi Homura

      Considering 012 was technically a prequel to the original, why not just keep making prequels? Granted, it has been a loooong time since I completed both stories. Would it work?

      • I guess it woouuld but according to 012, Cosmos always lose the war of the gods until the 12th war where the Manikins were stopped and the 13th being the demise of Chaos.

        Then again, they might as well just reboot or start a completely new cross-over story.

      • FreeLancers

        and this is why i hate prequels, cause if you make a prequel telling the story about the original, then your gonna have to tell a story about the prequel after that and so on. But as long the story makes sense then i’m ok with it.

        • I think you’re having Zelda in mind lololololololololololol.

          • FreeLancers

            not really cause the original dissidia was basically the end, so all your gonna make is prequels. Or like you said make cross over story.

          • But 012 story pretty much told further prequels are not needed since the story is the same over and over again and Cosmos would never win so it’s rest assured no more prequels will come out from Dissidia.

            If there’s a sequel my bet is Shinryuu plotting something new.

          • FreeLancers

            my point exactly, a prequel right now would kinda be stupid. They’re only option would be to make a direct sequel or make a completely new dissidia with characters that didn’t appear in ether games. So I agree with you.

          • Well the point I was trying to make… or rather what I don’t get is why you hate prequels having 012 in mind since it doesn’t hint like a prequel would happen or would even be needed.

            Buut yeah, let’s just agree Dissidia doesn’t need a prequel heh.

          • FreeLancers

            I don’t hate prequels, it’s just that making prequels leads to more prequels, *Cough*StarWars*Cough*. 1 or 2 ok thats it. Or make 2 sequels then make a prequel. Like Kingdom Hearts.

          • *looks above*
            “And this is why i hate prequels”
            Now now megacool, make up your mind :P

          • FreeLancers

            Ok let me take a deep breath….. Now I don’t hate prequels but constant prequel that just keep coming out one after another. say they made kingdom hearts, then chain of memories. Then they made KH:BBS you looking like ok KH2 is coming, but nope they made a prequel to BBS. Then your like oooook… Now its KH2. Disappointment again now it’s a prequel or sidestory to KH Chain of memories. Something like that I hate. Sorry to be confusing.

          • Yeah I getcha, that’s why I said you might have Zelda in mind cause ever since the second game it started to go for more prequels, prequels to the prequels, branch stories oh dear lord lol.

    • leingod

      The plot could be just an interdimensional tournament for all I care :P

  • ogopogo

    So what was the point of ruining X/X-2 with the horrible 2.5 novel and drama cd that has “to be continue” for a freaking ending? I mean, beside using that as a terrible way to judge how well-received a sequel would be.

    • Chip

      They made it to see if people would respond well to a sequel idea. They didn’t.
      So they won’t make it. You’re free to disregard it now, since Square has.

      • The 30-minute Audio Drama included in the HD Remaster was kinda good. Had a decent premise. But the Novel and everything else about that CD was terrible. Just Terrible. If they do make an X-3, IF they do, they would have to discard everything about that Novel and Disk.

  • Reiswindy

    I would buy a Blitzball-only spinoff. But that’s just me.

    • Revorse

      I would too. If they fixed it.

  • Ricardo C

    Dissidia 3 would be cool, a remaster of the first two games on PS3 would be awesome with all DLC on disc and can be bought but thats just me.
    As for 2.5 ReMix…. when the hell can I pre-order my Japanese copy?!?! (Im buying the English version Day 1 as well so calm down)

  • WingsOfEternity

    If they make another Dissidia, just throw it on XBOne/PS4. I think the entire concept of a FF fighting game would just be so much more better if it was a home console game.

  • Radprofile

    Dissidia: Lightning strikes again.

    • Travis Frazier

      Final Fantasy Theatrhythm: Lightning Never Strikes the Same Place Twice

  • SerChief

    More excited about the prospect of Dissidia III than the release of FFXV.

    • leingod

      Just what I was gonna say. A new Dissidia on Vita or PS3/4 would be awesome!

  • Sylveria Shini

    So the future is “We’re working on XV and praying to every god we can think of that its well received cause we’ve got NOTHING else and we’ve wasted over 2 decades of good-will this generation.”

  • Kamen Rider Rayz

    I just really hope that it would be a Dissidia Final Fantasy Musou game exclusively for PS4, Xbox ONE and Wii U!

  • Moofarbubu


    • Moofarbubu

      Yeah, I don’t usually yell, but for the virtual waifu of my preteen years I’d say it was worth it.

  • YouGusta

    Crisis Core: FF X

  • wishmylove


  • TagAnarchy

    Guilty Gear’s release already has me commited to getting a PS4 on release. If Dissidia came out for the PS4 as well, don’t think I could handle riding that hype train.
