New Character Reveal for Dissidia Final Fantasy Arcade Coming August 7

Square Enix has announced (via Famitsu) they’ll reveal a new playable character for Dissidia Final Fantasy arcade.

The new reveal is coming via a Niconico live stream on August 7th, at 8 PM Japan time. The company revealed an image with the silhouette of multiple characters, which you can view above.

Square Enix will reveal one new character every month from August through November, meaning the above silhouette has at least four characters stacked. Who could the new characters be?

Dissidia Final Fantasy is now available in Japanese arcades. A PlayStation 4 version, titled Dissidia Final Fantasy NT, is launching worldwide sometime early next year. In case you missed it, you can find our exclusive, hands-on E3 2017 video preview for the game here.

    I see Golbez’s shoulder spikes, and I think I see Mateus’s hair horn things? I’m not sure who the other two could be.

  • ProxyDoug

    Oh, I wonder who could it be?
    Hey Golbez, what’s up, who do you think it is?

  • ProxyDoug

    He has the Golbez’s feet.

  • Justin Oursel

    We see the armor of Golbez, the hairs of Cloud of Darkness, the fur coat of Ultimecia and the sword and feathers from Jecht. They will be the fours next characters for the four next months.

    Hmmm, I don’t know. Could it possibly be that one Final Fantasy 4 villain? This is just so hard to figure out.

  • Ace

    Hmmm… I wonder….

  • DwightParkman

    hate to go with the popular opinion, but the shoulderpads give away that its golbez.

  • Tenabrus

    People just saying it’s Golbez, read the article they specifically mention its multiple characters, just because Golbez’s is the biggest and most prominent it shadows all the others but you can still get traces of each one they’ll reveal one each month Golbez may not even be the first one.

    Multiple characters making one silhouette.

    Marche, Seifer, or any characters from FF5 & 6 would be nice. Hell throw in Ashe From 12 for the sake of zodiac age coming out.

  • Forky

    I doubt any part of Mateus is in there. Mostly cause he was already revealed.

  • Captain Vidya

    So he has. It’s been a while since I looked at the NT roster.

  • Forky

    It’s building up nicely. I hope to see lots more without the DLC abuse that Square is prone to dishing out lately.
