Same characters, new art in Dissidia: Final Fantasy


I’m sure you’ve seen tons of information about Dissidia: Final Fantasy, Square-Enix’s dramatic action game by now. But something that younger Final Fantasy fans may not know is the characters besides Sephiroth were originally drawn by Yoshitaka Amano. Instead of having him do the character design Tetsuya Nomura, known for Final Fantasy VII and Kingdom Hearts is taking the job in Dissidia: Final Fantasy. On top you can see the original artwork for the Knight from Final Fantasy’s Famicom box cover and below that Tetsuya Nomura’s take on it. Square-Enix mentioned that there would be at least ten playable "hero" characters in the game, which seems to suggest one lead character from each Final Fantasy title up to Final Fantasy X. That would make Cloud and Squall shoe ins for Dissidia: Final Fantasy. What about the other Final Fantasy games where Amano-san was the designer. Which characters do you want to see appear in Dissidia: Final Fantasy? Locke? Terra? Kain? Faris? The Onion Kid? From Final Fantasy IX, Zidane makes an appearance and you can see his comparison past the break.
