Square Enix Will Do Its Best For Final Fantasy Dissidia Sequel

PSP game Dissidia: Final Fantasy features a smorgasbord of Final Fantasy characters. The game was a hit! It sold over a million copies. Do you know what means?

It means that there will probably be another one! Square Enix has never been known to shy away from sequels, spin-offs and franchises. When asked about the inevitable Dissidia 2, Square Enix game designer Tetsuya Nomura replied, "I'll do my best for a sequel to Dissidia Final Fantasy!"

OK then!

Mini Interview: Final Fantasy Versus XIII's Development Progress [Final Fantasy-XIII.net]


    man I bloody hope he can pull it off cause the first 1 was awesome

    yay!! maybe with a deeper story this time?

    While I really enjoyed Dissidia, I'm not sure that it really warrants a sequel. You've already got the major hero and villain from each main Final Fantasy game from I to X, plus two others from XI and XII respectively.

    The only characters I could see being worth adding would be Vaan (and opposing villain) from XII and Lightning (and opposing villain) from XIII. I don't feel secondary characters would really add anything to the game (despite so many people wanting this to turn into a FFVII love-fest), and the last thing we need is Sora from Kingdom Hearts or characters from other Square-Enix titles that are unrelated to Final Fantasy.

    In the way of other content, I can't see any way of adding additional content (except for maybe a couple of new stages) without convoluting the game further. Dissidia was already pretty convoluted for what was essentially a fighting game. And while I'm all for depth, there comes a point where you're just adding crap for the sake of adding crap.

    But then again, if Capcom can pass an incremental upgrade as a sequel, then so can Square-Enix. ^^

      Yeah but what if they add the sidekicks?
      Barrett, Tifa, Zell, Irvine, Steiner, Vivi, Kimahri, Yuna, Riku etc?

        I see now you mentioned that...heh...

    A protagonist and antagonist from the first 10 final fantasy games? Interesting. Didn't Final Fantasy 6 have, like 20 protagonist? Even if they can't dig up anymore antagonist, they have a slew of monsters and iconic mini-bosses at their disposal.
