In a livestream earlier in the week, Square-Enix and Team Ninja announced their last DLC character for Dissidia Final Fantasy NT on PS4 and it’s Arcade incarnation. The new character is Snow Villiers of Final Fantasy XIII fame, though more specifically seems to be his Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII form, as he is also pegged as a villain.
Alongside Snow’s addition, more BGM tracks have been added to the game which will also arrive the same time as Snow.
As for release dates, Snow is out today in the Arcade version of the title and will be releasing sometime during February for PS4. He is the last of the planned DLC characters for the Dissidia Final Fantasy NT season pass, so if you have it be sure to download him when he releases. You can also buy him separately on his own if you so desire.

Square-Enix has also announced it’s future plans for continued support of the game.

Over the weekend Square-Enix and Team Ninja held a 3rd year anniversary broadcast, featuring a tournament showing off just how skilled many of the players in Japan are. At the end of the broadcast they announced some new upcoming details about the game.
Yuna (of Final Fantasy X fame) has been selected to be the next participant for DLC characters and will be arriving sometime during December. Alongside her release, the game will be receiving a free update that’ll add a new stage called “Final Battlefield”.
Below you can check out the trailers for both Yuna and the Stage in action:

It’s that time again where Square-Enix reveals their next DLC character for Team Ninja’s 3v3 brawler Dissidia: Final Fantasy NT. This time, releasing in late October is Kam’lanaut – what a mouthful that is – from Final Fantasy XI.
He wields a Sword that will deal elemental damage that will increase in power the more successive hits you make. He can also use the power Esoteric Region which forms a area of effect ring that’ll debilitate any who get caught within it.
Interestingly enough, this character was part of a leak a while back, which leads to speculation that the remaining two characters may also be right as per the leak (FFX-2 Yuna and Snow Villiers of FFXIII fame) for December and February respectively. But we will find out soon enough!
You can find Kam’lanaut’s reveal trailer attached below.
Dissidia: Final Fantasy NT is out now exclusively for PS4, and you can acquire this DLC character in Late October via the game’s Season Pass or purchased individually on release.

Critic: Shaun Player Date of Review: Sept 15th, 2018 Version: Nintendo Switch File Size(s): 75.0MB Region: PAL Game Page: RYGAR Game Page
RYGAR – known as Warrior of Argus in Japan – is a classic Arcade side-scrolling Platformer by Tecmo from the 1980’s, and with the capabilities of today’s generation of consoles we are seeing more and more true Arcade ports hit the systems. Thanks to HAMSTER’s faithful Arcade Archives series, we now have the opportunity to play RYGAR at our leisure from home (or on the go with the Switch) without the worry for our pennies being sucked up.
You play as RYGAR, a legendary – but dead – Warrior whom has risen from the grave to take down the Dominator. Set 4.5 billion years after the creation of Earth, you wield your Diskamor (a Yo-Yo type bladed wheel) to succeed in your adventure. There isn’t much story beyond that for the Arcade edition of the game, and quite frankly there doesn’t need to be.
Each level is separated into “Rounds”, which will pit you against a long side-scrolling stretch of land that you will have to navigate by platforming and launching your Diskamor at foes – along with a timer pushing you forward. The goal is to reach the end of the level with as high of a score as you can accumulate. You can do this by defeating enemies, smashing statues, and getting to the end without losing lives or in a speedy manor. This isn’t an easy feat by any definition of the word, but it is satisfying when you get your groove down.
However, this game is very trialling, as you’ll soon realise if you stand still for too long, or try and defeat every enemy you will only meet your doom. You have no health points, and only a select few lives. Every hit you take is a life lost. Thankfully the game is lenient in letting you respawn right where you died with all enemies on screen (and bonus items) removed from the screen, allowing you to get a fresh start.
The best way to get through a level is by getting use to dodging and avoiding enemies and booking it to the end as efficiently as possible. You will have pits to jump over, projectiles to dodge and hordes of oncoming enemies to avoid. You are able to jump on enemies to stun them for a short period, however this is hit and miss as the hit box is very particular with where you have to land, otherwise it’s a life lost.
This also leads to some other issues with the game, sometimes button inputs will feel delayed, so you’ll end up not jumping when you meant to, and there are also random times you won’t fling your Diskamor in mid-air, leading to a lot of unplanned lost lives. When you run out of lives (up to 5 depending on the settings you pick) you will get a game over, and have to start from Round 1 again.
There is a variety of enemies you will come across in your perilous journey, which will require different tactics to take down, if you so choose to. The game is very simple in that you can only jump and do a basic attack, so tactics will rely on when to strike, having to jump on them first or having to strike them from behind. You can also use your attack to hit oncoming projectiles if things get too hectic.
As you progress through each Round, the levels design will change up, more platforming challenges will appear and tougher enemies will spawn. There are some that feel very cheap, especially those that appear very quickly out of holes in the background. The ultimate goal is first and foremost to get as high of a score as you can, so it is meant to be played over and over again (like many of the Arcade games of that era).
The Arcade Archives version allows you to tweak various settings within the game, allowing you to increase live amount (up to 5), allow a continue option so when you run out you can have a select amount of continues to further progress, as well as things such as tweak how many points you need to get an extra life or make the game even harder if you’re the masochist type. You can also play two player with a friend locally, where you will take it in turns each time you lose a life (or complete a Round).
Is this game worth your time and money? Well the Arcade Archive series is a rather cheap purchase, though it depends how much you like high score chasers. You can get a lot of play time out of it if you are, or if not you probably won’t play it more than 5 or 10 minutes. There isn’t much motivation aside the score to push you through the game. As an Arcade game itself, it is fun, and definitely has that “one more try” addiction to it, just at least this time it isn’t costing you money each time!
