Bartz Klauser and Squall Leonhart are Playable in Dissidia: Final Fantasy

Two more fighters have been added to Dissidia: Final Fantasy, the upcoming arcade reboot of the Final Fantasy-themed fighting franchise. Final Fantasy V and Final Fantasy VIII protagonists Bartz Klauser and Squall Leonhart make their grand return to the franchise. Both characters were playable in the original Dissidia: Final Fantasy and its prequel, Dissidia 012: Final Fantasy.

Dissidia: Final Fantasy is a reboot featuring brand new game mechanics, new maps, and new characters. Upon the game’s initial release, there will be a total of fourteen characters, however the developers goal is to reach fifty characters post-release. Currently, the game is only planned for release on arcades, but Square Enix is heavily considering porting the game to PS4 somewhere down the road.  Square Enix is working with Team Ninja to bring their vision to life.

Dissidia: Final Fantasy is set to release in arcades fall 2015. A potential PS4 version wouldn’t launch until sometime in 2016.
