Final Fantasy has spawned numerous entries in its world-renowned franchise over the past decades, with spinoff games like the 1v1 fighting game “Dissidia Final Fantasy” and the rhythm game “Theatrhythm Final Fantasy” paying tribute to the dozens of beloved characters and games. With the online MMO “Final Fantasy XIV” and the upcoming “Final Fantasy XV” releasing soon, video game company Square-Enix has announced a new entry into the Dissidia franchise with an arcade-exclusive fighter!



The Dissidia series, which has focused on free-flowing action battles between iconic Final Fantasy characters, will head to arcades in a new battle format. While previous Dissidia games have been entirely 2-player battles, the arcade version will feature battles between two teams of three characters, allowing up to six people to play together at once! The teaser video released earlier this week shows off the game’s new graphics and just a few of the playable characters scheduled to appear in the game. While not much else is known yet about the new game, or whether or not it will release in America, more news is sure to come as work continues on the game, so stay tuned!
