Square Enix Confirms Horrible Game Name For North America

After showing off the Lightning-infused new title at the Tokyo Game Show last week, Square Enix confirms a North American PSP release for Dissidia 012[duodecim]Final Fantasy. And we thought 358/2 Days was bad.

Coming to Japan and North America in 2011, Dissidia 2 continues the fight between Cosmos and Chaos that began in the original PSP game. New characters join the fight, including the previously revealed Kain from Final Fantasy IV and Lightning from FFXIII, trying on alternate costumes as they battle through two new game modes and various new story missions.

Other new features include a playable Chaos storyline and the ability to assign assist characters that serve as your back-up in combat.

Now if only they'd change that name. The only way it could possibly be more annoying is if they added HTML code for blinking text around it, like so: Dissidia 012[duodecim]Final Fantasy.

I probably shouldn't give them any ideas.


    The blinking code doesn't work here, McCoy.

    I'm a doctor, not a flasher!

    358/2 Days actually makes sense though, once you've played through the game. Still a really strange name, but suitable. does duodecim actually mean anything?

      Duodecim is "twelve" in latin, and this game is actually a prequel to the first one, set during the 12th battle (as opposed to the 13th in Dissida) between Chaos and Cosmos.

      According to Tetsuya Nomura, anyway.
