Final Fantasy IX Villain Kuja Joins Dissidia Final Fantasy Arcade

Square Enix has confirmed yet another playable character for the arcade version of Dissidia Final Fantasy.

The main antagonist of Final Fantasy IX, Kuja, will join the fray in an update this month. Featured above, you can view his reveal trailer.

While Dissidia Final Fantasy launched back in November of 2015, Koei Tecmo previously teased that the game could get a PlayStation 4 port at least a year after the arcade version, as the game is built on similar hardware.

    Was an FF8 villain announced or did they go right from Sephiroth to Kuja?

    Never liked Kuja. Thought he was lame.

    I want to see Noctis and Thancred. Literally all I want.

    And a PS4 release.
    And an American release.
    Also Minfilia.
    And Tataru.
    Plus a Switch release.
    With Link as a bonus character.

    Literally all I want. It’s not that hard Square.

    Hmm isn’t Ultimecia in Dissidia?

    Kuja looks so dumb when he’s not Chibified.

  • Eugenio Gil de la Madrid

    Hyped glad to see Kuja get in!

  • 真・女神転生

    Ah she’s pretty. Oh wait…

  • Fenrir007

    One of the most boring villains in the history of Final Fantasy.

    Back when I played FF9, I wasn’t in to anime really aside from the few shows that air on Toonami. It was my first enocunter with a bishounen. I legit thought Kuja was a girl at first.
