Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Free-to-Play overview
–The characters that can be used in the free-to-play will switch out at fixed intervals.
–This is a free-to-play title that specializes in battles. Story Mode is not playable, and the specifications of some game modes are also different from the full version.
–The free-to-play version can battle with other users of the free-to-play version, as well as users of the full version.
–Save data from the free-to-play version can be carried over to the full version.
–Some data from the arcade version can be carried over to the free-to-play version. (Only usable for content with lifted restrictions.)
There is no word if this will be making it’s way to the West, but that of course is up to Square-Enix, but it is quite likely. Also along this news a special announcement for a 9 hour (you read that right) 3rd Anniversary broadcast for Dissidia Final Fantasy NT will be happening on November 10th, being hosted on both YouTube and NicoNico. They will go live 12PM JST (3AM GMT / Nov 9 10PM EST), and will feature a tournament along with other news and announcements (likely a reveal of the upcoming next DLC character). You’ll be able to watch it here via YouTube, though be warned it is a Japanese hosted event.
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is available now worldwide exclusively for the PS4.
