Japan getting international version of Dissidia, coincides with PSP Go launch


Square Enix is planning on tapping into a time-tested recipe for success in the Japanese games market -- if a game you release is overwhelmingly successful, then ... release it again! This time around, the title receiving the revamp treatment is the soon-to-be-released-in-America RPG brawler, Dissidia: Final Fantasy -- or, as it will be called when it gets relaunched in Japan this November, Dissidia: Final Fantasy Universal Tuning. (That's fancy Squeenix-speak for "International Version.")

Japanese tech blog AndriaSang learned the titular Tuning will add features to the game that have been added in the European and North American versions of the game -- features such as English voice overs and an arcade-style time attack mode. It shares the same November 1 release date as the PSP Go -- and in a clever sale-boosting move, will be released both as a UMD (for ¥5,040) and a PSN download (for ¥4,000). Sweet! You can save up that extra ¥1,040 for the release of Dissidia: Final Fantasy Universal Tuning Deluxe Remix Turbo Fighter!
