    "No better way to start the day than with some news item on Dissidia! If yesterday, we had scans, today, we get a video!

    Square Enix's official website for the game was updated with a walkthrough video of how Story Mode works. It's mostly in Japanese, but we already know what's going on here: the video demonstrates how the chessboard (aka Dissidia's own reincarnation of the Sphere Grid or License Board) works - something we've already covered here.

    If you're too busy to read that previous article, the basics are these:

    * each character gets his/her own chessboard field
    * your goal: get to the other end and fight the boss
    * Destiny Points (DPs) are your standard mode of travel around the board (just like AP or LP in FFX and FFXII)
    * enemies and items are found randomly on the grid - accessing these need only that you're adjacent to their square
    * the big red X mark on the grid means you have a requirement to fulfill (say, clear all enemies or something) before it gets unblocked

    You can check out the video via the source link, or if you don't mind a video with slightly less quality, this YouTube embed would do:

    Wow, those fight sequences look AWESOME!
    (I love katakana, it makes Japanese games playable with non-fluent knowledge of Japanese)

    Can't wait to get this, will be perfect for those long christmas time trips XD

    Looks good. It's amazing how much love Squeenix keeps giving the PSP. First Crisis Core, then the Star Ocean remakes, now this... What's next?

    My friend wants this game so bad.

    I'll probably put the Japanese version on my PSP when it's out just to taunt him with it.

    Story mode looks incredibly short, though :/.

    Looks unique. I can't wait for it to come out. I'm currently hooked on FFT: War of the Lions.. AGAIN. Damn this game is too addicting for me.

    Would've been made better if the Chaos forces got their own story mode as well.
