Final Fantasy Fighting Game Gets A Sequel Struck By Lightning

Square Enix has revealed the follow-up to its portable Final Fantasy fighting game, Dissidia: Final Fantasy, in the latest issue of Japanese magazine Weekly Shonen Jump.

That game is the somewhat clumsily titled Dissidia Duodecim: Final Fantasy, a PlayStation Portable release planned for release sometime in 2011, the magazine reveals. (The logo looks like Dissidia [duodecim] 012: Final Fantasy, so just a touch awkward, but regardless of the full title, it'll be fun to say out loud.)

Fans of the original PSP game will likely be excited by the roster additions in Dissidia Duodecim. Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII and Kain from Final Fantasy IV appear to be confirmed, going by the new issue of Jump.


Dissidia Duodecim: Final Fantasy may be making an appearance at next week's Tokyo Game Show, so we'll see if the sequel to 2008's Dissidia: Final Fantasy is still like doing your taxes on the moon.

Dissidia is one of the games I've wanted to buy a PSP for. Regardless of how good it actually is, combining so many Final Fantasy titles just makes me happy.

If they do the protagonist/antagonist thing again, who would go against Lightning? Dysley/Bartandelus (or however you spell it, but then that would be either an old man or a giant moster) or her own emotions?

But also — Kain is awesome.

With two Dissidias, I might have to actually buy one of these things...
