    Amazon has let it slip that the ever-popular Final Fantasy arcade game, Dissidia, will be making its way to PlayStation 4 consoles early next year. The official press release is likely to arrive later today, as Square Enix will be holding a stream for the arcade version of the game. According to the retailer leak, the game will feature 20 characters, FFXV's Noctis as a playable combatant, and a "deeper and more methodical" combat system. Dissidia NT's story will be written by Kazuhige Nohima, known for his work on FFX, and Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2.

    I collectively put over 1000 hours into Dissidia+Duodecim. Unfortunately, trying to go back to them today was a drag, but I loved them in their day. I hope this game can bring back that feeling the original had when it first launched, but if they're going to do that, then they're going to need to at least; 1.) improve that terrible camera, 2.) make the game less rewarding to defensive play, and 3.) improve the AI+make it more aggressive. I don't know if they can make the quality of sequel that Dissidia deserves, but I'll definitely be keeping my eye on this game.

    EDIT: There's actually a gameplay trailer on Amazon's listing. It looks like they have 6 combatants on the field at once using more or less the same targeting system of the originals. How exactly to they intend to balance something like that? You could potentially constantly have your combos broken by attacks from another player you couldn't see coming. You'd just get dog-piled at some times, and be tangentially involved in an un-nuanced gangbang at others. What mechanic could be there to even out something like that? Looking at the footage again, it looks like there is none. I don't see a give-and-take possible like that, but perhaps I'm just jaded by how sloppy DBZ: Tenkaichi Tag-Team was. Still, I can't see how this is going to work out. Maybe it's just a mode, and the game won't force it on you, but I kinda doubt it. It might be interesting to note that Dissidia was apparently developed by Team Ninja and only published by Square Enix, while Duodecim was an SE refinement of the game. The 2015 Dissidia arcade game, of which I assume this is a port, was developed by Team Ninja again, and was apparently rebuilt from the ground up. In short, I don't know what to expect, other than quite a different feel from the originals.

    Overall, that trailer has me less than excited for this game, as it looks like it turned from a skill-based fighting game into a frenzied party brawler without room for technical cleverness.

    Oh PS4... I've never been so happy to have a PS4. All the PSP/PSVITA games I wanted to play are veing released on PS4. Is Sony trying something? I don't know what they are doing but it's working on me :D

    But everyone has been screaming for a proper console release, now we have it, and you're wanting to drag it down back to mobile? :P

    Has more of a chance on Vita than on PS4 where anything outside of EA/Ubisoft games flops hard.

    Right. It is not complete dead but a minor games are being release. Don't get me wrong that I really like Vita appearance however no major video games are supporting it at all like 3rd party supporting. So I don't bother to get it. 3DS is the stronger one of all. Again, I am not into 3DS either for other reason, lol.

    This trailer is too much confusion. First of all, why is everyone NAMELESS "********" They have names. Second, there is way too much stuff going on the HUD, this sounds a bit more complex than the 2 psp games i have. Third. this is a 3 vs 3 battle game now? Who is the gopher.... chipmunk reject known as "Nameless Matron"? And last why they replace the other two main characters cosmos and chaos? Now we got a horned human being with a sword and young princess looking person, hope they are playable at least. O_O
