Final Fantasy VIII's Other Main Character Joins Dissidia Duodecim

Some people forget that Final Fantasy XIII had a second main character to complement Squall Leonhart. Square Enix reminds them by adding Laguna Loire to the fighting roster of Dissidia 012[Duodecim] .

When I say some people, I include myself. I replayed Final Fantasy VIII on the PSP earlier this year and found myself completely surprised when play shifted over to the trio of Laguna, Kiros, and Ward. Hopefully the appearance of the president of Esthar in the sequel to Square Enix's PSP Final Fantasy fighting game will help cement Squall's possible father in my memory.

Check out the scan from Japan's Weekly Shonen Jump for a look at Laguna's flashy special attacks. Thanks to SlicedBread for pointing us to the image!


    Heeeeeeeeeeeeeey, well isn't that a surprise.
    It's good though, right? I know people wanted Siefer but then there was always the chance of making him a Squall clone in terms of fighting style.

      Well there's always the chance of each game getting two villains as well as two heroes, right?

      Yeeaaah....but, no one likes a pansy.

      btw, Laguna is Squall's father. though i don't know where Squall got his Leonheart surname from.

        IIRC, it's Raine's (Squall's mother) surname.

    I love the character, don't know if he's the best choice though.
    I think Zell was a bit of a tool but it would be fun tapping in his overdrives/limitbreaks/deperation moves.

    And not at all the same as Tifa even though she is a puncher too.

    Had Vaan from FF12 already been announced? cause that's him in that screenshot

    Best. battle theme. EVER.

    Hey that's pretty cool. I'd totally forgotten about the other characters like Laguna. It'd be cool if they culd stick Irvine in there somewhere, I always liked him.

      The only character I need to remember from FFVIII is Quistis - yum!

    No mention of the 3D rendered World Map, with a Party System in the two bottom screenshots?

    Words can honestly not describe how badly I want this game.
    I'm sitting here wanting to type more.
    But I cannot, the phrases that come to mind do not even come close.
