Dissidia Final Fantasy NT’s key developers recently had a lot to say about its setting and many heroes in this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine. They also dropped a little hint for characters to be added via DLC. [Thanks, Ryokutya2089.]
The developers mentioned that they feared the story could get a little too complicated with so many characters on the roster. With the likes of Ramza, Kain, Ace, and such, there wasn’t much spotlight time for characters other than the main heroes. That said, they might be lacking a bit on event scenes but this is something Square Enix would like to add for them in the future.
It was mentioned that the reason they didn’t add many scenes was because the game will be adding more characters via Season Pass. Here’s a bit from the interview with a little more elaboration that gives us a little hint on what kind of characters we can expect to see:
Takeo Kujiraoka, Director: “There are some characters that have an extremely low amount of scenes in the story. This couldn’t be helped as they share relationships with characters that will be added through DLC later. Among them are some characters that will play key roles in the story.”
To put it simply, we still don’t know which characters got the short end of the stick when it comes to story scenes, but that means once you get to play the game you can keep an eye out and take a good guess, as the DLC characters will likely come from the games of the characters with less screen time.
You can read more details on the characters, setting and system info from the interview in our previous report.
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT releases in Japan on January 11, 2018 for PlayStation 4. The game releases in North America and Europe on January 30.
