Square Enix Unveils New Dissidia Opening Cinematic and Cutscene

Square Enix has released two new videos for their upcoming Final Fantasy fighting game, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT. The new videos include the game’s opening cinematic and the introduction cutscene to Noctis from Final Fantasy XV.

The opening cinematic features iconic Final Fantasy heroes and villains fighting against each other. Heroes such as Lightning, Squall, Tidus, and Noctis are showing fighting against villains such as Garland, Sephiroth, and Ultimecia.

The video that details the opening of Noctis’ story within the world of Dissidia was also unveiled. Noctis is pulled into the conflict as a hero of light fighting for Materia, the Goddess of Protection. The other heroes all remember their previous fights in the other Dissidia games, but this is the first time Noctis has been pulled into the conflict. The video for Noctis features Lightning and the Warrior of Light both finding the prince and escorting him to an audience with Materia.

You can see both of the new videos in our First Fifteen, below.

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is a re-release of the arcade version of Dissidia Final Fantasy that was playable in Japan. This new version of the game includes all the characters from the previous installments and is the first time that this version of the game will be playable in the West and Europe.

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is releasing exclusively for the Sony PlayStation 4 on Jan. 30 of 2018.
