Dissidia 012[duodecim] Final Fantasy Official Character Tournament Trailer

The latest trailer of the ludicrously named Dissidia 012[duodecim] Final Fantasy, or Dissidia 012 for short, has the arch villain of Final Fantasy VIII, Ultimecia, facing off against FF XIII’s Lightning. As expected it appears to play very similarly to the original Dissidia, with rapid burst of strikes to build up your bravery and eventually unleash a massive attack to severely damage your foe. Individual character styles look to return, as Ultimecia continues to be a menace at long range, while the newcomer Lightning likes to mix up mid range projectiles and quick closing melee attacks. Noticeably more special moves appear in the trailer than I can recall from Dissidia, adding the potential for even more flexibility and personalization of your characters. The only disappointment from the trailer is the level design, which is reused from Dissidia. Hopefully this is to surprise fans with new levels when the game launches. Speaking of release, it’s closer than you think, with Dissidia 012 headed to North America on March 22nd. Pick your hero (or villain) wisely and get ready for another Square Enix-infused portable fighting experience like no other.
