Q5: Please share a message for the fans looking forward to Dissidia Final Fantasy: Opera Omnia.

Dissidia Final Fantasy: Opera Omnia is a smartphone game based on the world of Dissidia Final Fantasy on arcade. Similar to the arcade version, Koei Tecmo is helping out in its development.
When the game releases, the game will feature over 20 characters from past Final Fantasy games. Rather than acquiring these characters using a gacha system, you’ll recruit them by advancing through the story and events. Since “most of the main-numbered Final Fantasy characters will appear,” you’ll get to create your own dream party.
The above screenshot gives us a look at its battle screen, where we can see the order of enemies displayed above the party status. You can also see icons next to the enemy’s HP to see who they’re aiming for, providing a strategic touch to the game.
While the game uses the “Brave Attacks” and “HP Attacks” from Dissidia Final Fantasy, there’s a limit to Brave, so you’ll get to enjoy battles with smooth tempo.

Again, characters have their own abilities and will all come with their own characteristic powers. There’s a limit to how many times abilities can be used in battle, so it’ll be important to keep that in mind while taking on enemies.
Dissidia Final Fantasy: Opera Omnia releases in Japan in early 2017 for iPhone and Android.
