Dissidia: Final Fantasy

Just wanna give you an up-close look to the newest game in the Final Fantasy franchise that will commemorate its 20th year in the business.

Yep, I am talking about Dissidia: Final Fantasy which
would be released for the Playstation Portable this 2009.


The game can be classified as a RPG, since it uses progressive controls, and a fighting game, as well mainly because of the way the battles were illustrated and iterated for the game. The story goes like this: two entities of good and evil(Cosmos and Chaos) waged war on each other, causing the order of the multiverse to collapse. When Chaos' army of villains began overwhelming the peace of the universes, Cosmos recruits a couple of heroes from the diff. Final Fantasy universes in order to counter the villains and defeat Chaos to restore the order of the multiverse.


Here are the diff. characters that will be present for the game:

Each character will have a corresponding EX form or second form. Like for example, Sephiroth can transform into his One-winged Angel appearance, while Cloud can unlock his appearance on Advent Children.

There will be 50 summons on the game, each with a different effect and use. They can be accessed with the use of summon stones.The story will be narrated within the perspective of the Cid of Final Fantasy I.
