We were sure Square Enix would localize the sequel to Dissidia Final Fantasy, its PSP fighting-RPG hybrid thing. But we also vainly hoped the company would alter the title for the American version to something that makes even the slightest bit of sense. No such luck. Square Enix announced that DI...

DISSIDIA 012 [duodecim] FINAL FANTASY may have a bizarre, head-scratching title, but its brand new features make a whole lot of sense. The follow-up to 2008's mash-up fighter offers the most obvious addition for a sequel: an expanded roster, including Final Fantasy XIII's Lightning and Final Fantas...

Flower This year had a number of terrific downloadable games (this list is a testament to that), however no game -- retail or digital -- connected with me like Flower. Jenova Chen's flOw was an interesting experiment, but Flower is an actual game. In fact, Flower is one of the few experiences I ca...

You'll be able to pick up the UMD for $28, including free shipping (with no sales tax, for most). Of course, beca...

Dissidia: Final Fantasy is just okay. While the time I spent with the game's combat was certainly fun, if repetitive at times, a truly awful story and seemingly arbitrary customization options weigh down an otherwise decent fighting game. After 10 hours and a handful of characters, I was left wond...

Dissidia will be making its way to European shores -- that's the UK and across all PAL territories -- on September 4. That's only a week or so after the American launch, but in return, European Final Fantasy fans will get access to the limited edition version of the game. The western release will ...

Sure, Europe still has some slight delay when getting Square Enix PSP titles, when compared to the US, but at least when they arrive, they come with extra goodies. Crisis Core had a bonus art book and now Dissidia will be getting the collector's edition treatment. This special edition will include a...

Square Enix's E3 lineup features two surprises, in addition to the expected Final Fantasy stuff: Front Mission Evolved and NIER. While we may have suspected that some kind of Front Mission game was coming, we wouldn't have guessed that it would be a third-person shooter instead of a strategy game, n...

See the full picture. Now, who would have thought you could print on both sides of paper? Apparently, Square Enix discovered it could do just that with its North American Final Fantasy: Dissidia box art. Taking advantage of the whole good versus evil theme, future owners of the title can choose whe...

Dissidia, the Final Fantasy fighter, is hitting western PSPs later this year. While series spokesperson Tetsuya Nomura says a sequel would be difficult to do, another Square Enix producer thinks differently. Speaking to Final Fantasy Union, Dissidia director Takeshi Arakawa said the team would "li...

The first official US debut trailer for Dissidia: Final Fantasy has made its way onto GameTrailers (you can watch it past the break) and, like most Square Enix trailers, is full of great music and lots of words. Oh, and CG. Square Enix loves the CG. But, we will admit that even though there's no g...

It's okay, Europeans. You can stop holding your collective breath. Dissidia, the Final Fantasy fighting game, will definitely be heading to PAL regions. The PSP exclusive will be available to purchase in the region this Autumn, a few months after the American "mid-year" launch. Hopefully, European...

A Final Fantasy game doing well? Who would've thunk it?! Square Enix's PSP-only Final Fantasy brawler has continued its dominance over the Japanese game charts in January, with over 186k units sold in January. This bumps the total number of copies sold to 846k. It's clear that it will only take a f...

The PSP-exclusive Final Fantasy brawler may be the only fighting game featuring the famed RPG characters for quite some time. Tetsuya Nomura revealed in the Japanese "Ultimania" strategy guide that a sequel isn't in the works, in spite of plans to originally make one. (Translation via 1UP) "There a...
