Sure, the new generation of Final Fantasy heroes and villains seem powerful, but how do they compare to past characters? The old guard had to appear moody and aloof without voices and fewer polygons. Were they Final Fantasy’s Greatest Generation, or is that just our rose-colored glasses in nostalgia frames?
Now, you can see for yourself. Starting today, you can answer those questions in Dissidia Final Fantasy NT’s three-phase open beta. Each will run for three days and feature a different roster for you to try. A new phase begins on the 12th, 15th, and the 18th of this month, so check back to see if your favorite character made the cut.
The open beta will feature quite a bit from the game. Each of the different rosters will fight online and offline across recognizable Final Fantasy locales, and you will be able to customize your character. Summons will be included as well.
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is being developed by Koei Tecmo’s Team Ninja. They are responsible for the Dead or Alive series, the Ninja Gaiden series, and Nioh, so they have a little experience in fighting games and action.
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT will be released on January 30th, giving you ample opportunity to recreate the fight between Cloud and Sephiroth again and again.
