Recently, in a closed press conference, Square Enix confirmed that Team Ninja – developers of Dead or Alive – are going to be making a Dissidia Final Fantasy game with the core technology from the PlayStation 4. It seems there may be a PS4 release, but for now it’s just going to stay a brawler game for people to enjoy in the arcade setting.

Below are a few photos from the conference showing the arcade machine itself. The controls appear a bit more modern than the retro arcade games you usually see, and it looks great! I can’t wait to see the finished product, especially if there might be a release for the PS4 at a later date. What do you think of Dissidia Final Fantasy as an arcade game? Tell us in the comments!

Our Verdict


Mariah Beem
I am very fond of video games, which is why I chose my major of Video Game Design with focus on Narrative. The idea of being able to make people feel the way I do about games through my own game is my main goal. I want to be able to give gamers a way to connect and be brought together by an experience that could be powered by elation, sadness, or even fear. It is emotions such as those that hook people into games and make them want more. By connecting a well-thought story with mechanics, character design, level design, and even audio, a game can be unstoppable - and ridiculously fun to play. I believe that narrative design is not a static thing. For narrative to be done well, it must be fluid and dynamic - something that is able to be changed by the player. Whether that be by choices, the knowledge the player gains from exploring, or simply who the player talks to, the story must bend and change and grow. This is why I want to be a narrative designer: there is definitely more to it than meets the eye, and I love a challenge.
