Square Enix Confirms Horrible Game Name For North America

Illustration for article titled Square Enix Confirms Horrible Game Name For North America

After showing off the Lightning-infused new title at the Tokyo Game Show last week, Square Enix confirms a North American PSP release for Dissidia 012[duodecim] Final Fantasy. And we thought 358/2 Days was bad.

Coming to Japan and North America in 2011, Dissidia 2 continues the fight between Cosmos and Chaos that began in the original PSP game. New characters join the fight, including the previously revealed Kain from Final Fantasy IV and Lightning from FFXIII, trying on alternate costumes as they battle through two new game modes and various new story missions.

Other new features include a playable Chaos storyline and the ability to assign assist characters that serve as your back-up in combat.


Now if only they'd change that name. The only way it could possibly be more annoying is if they added HTML code for blinking text around it, like so: Dissidia 012[duodecim] Final Fantasy.

I probably shouldn't give them any ideas.

As silly as the title sounds, it actually makes sense if you take the time to research what it actually means (duodecim = twelve, as in the twelfth battle between Cosmos and Chaos) instead of just make fun of it.

And hell, I didn't even like Dissidia very much. But Duodecim's name is inspired, I gotta give it that much.
