Kotaku EastEast is your slice of Asian internet culture, bringing you the latest talking points from Japan, Korea, China and beyond. Tune in every morning from 4am to 8am.

I wasn’t really that excited after seeing the Dissidia Final Fantasy debut trailer. Nor did the news that Team Ninja was developing the game do that much for me. But this latest trailer? You have my attention, Tecmo Koei.


Make that, my full attention. The game will launch first only in arcades for a year in Japan, and after that, the smart money says there will be a PlayStation 4 version.
