    "The latest issue of Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu has just come out, and things are looking good for Square Enix's PSP-exclusive fighter, Dissidia. While Famitsu is known for inflating some of its scores for anticipated games, we're hoping this initial good review is the sign of things to come. Dissidia received a 36/40 -- a full point higher than Square Enix's other big Final Fantasy game -- Crisis Core.

    PSPHyper's translation of the issue suggests the story mode will take 40 hours to complete. To collect all the items, however, will take upwards of a hundred. It's going to take a lot of trips on the subway to get through the amazing amount of content Dissidia seemingly promises."

    The US doesn't even have a release window yet alone date. As far as if it'll be playable without any Japanese knowledge...too early to say. That story mode board thing seems simple enough, but I don't know how complex it gets as you play.

    you can't take Famitsu scores seriously. If it where for Famitsu everybody would play MGS4 and Nintendogs for the rest of their lives.

    True that. Same thing can said about Brawl. I'm such a huge Smash Bros. fan, but Brawl was a let down for me.

    Crisis Core's missions got tedious, the only saving grace for me was the epic summon battles! Still, looking forward to Dissidia, it's one of the reasons I got a PSP in the first place!

    Because he IS Tidus.
