I do hope this gets a console release some day, but I am going to Japan sometime soon so I might plan it to coincide with this being out haha.

I hope Nomura is doing alright, I'd love to read that interview.

Is a 3DS version even possible with this title?
We haven't really seen enough to make that determination for certain one way or the other. It'd probably require downgrading a lot though (which still isn't out of the question, but makes it less likely than a console port).

Man, this would be my most anticipated game if there was a chance I could play it without going to a Japanese arcade. :(

lol!

Might as well be a different game with the amount of downgrading it would take.

No way to know the news live? Like, someone tweeting or something?

Either way, nice to see that Nomura still exists (and that he's working on Dissidia, hopefully as more than just character designer).

The 3DS has already gotten some console game ports with downgrades. It's not out of the question.

I still find it extremely unlikely mind you, but I wouldn't say it's an impossibility.

Right now all we're going off of is a fairly unexplained teaser trailer anyways.

No way it has to be the lady whose tie stops at her cleavage
I was so disappointed that she was so hyped pre-release, and shes in the game all of 5 minutes, maybe.

My votes goes to:

Chocolina from FF 13-2: for the lulz.

Quistis or Selpie from FF8: One has a whipe, which could a neat midrange, fast weapon combined with her blue magic. The other could be a short range, fast attacked with a super that does random damage or something.

Baltheier, FF12: because hes boss, dangit.

When I saw the title I figured there was a 50/50 chance that "Dissidia Final Fantasy Closed Conference" was actually the stupid name for another dumb square game.

Stop murdering the English language please, Square.

I dunno why anyone would want a fighting game on 3DS with those controls. DOA: Dimensions and Smash Bros were a pain.

PS4 or bust for me.

Better than PSP controls. Dissidia was created to be a handheld series.

That's assuming this Dissidia is going to play like the PSP ones.

Anyway, I don't see them announcing a console port till the game is actually out for a while in the arcade.

That's what I thought of as well, the Vita controls would be ideal for this game. I can see them utilizing the touch screen, granted this would transition well to the PS4 also with the touch pad.

Square seems to be the only one supporting the Vita even somewhat nowadays like they did with the PSP. So maybe they might release on both consoles and they have duel support, you just have to double dip with the game.

... I'd totally double dip.

No way, bigger environments and improved performance is all Dissidia needs (not to mention this one is a 4 player game, so it requires even more from the console).

It's definitely a fantastic series on the PSP, but the potential of a full Dissidia game on consoles is just way too high.

This, hell Nintendo even hasn't said that Pokken is coming to WiiU already even though we all know it will.

Dissidia would work just as well on a console. Actually if anything it would just be better. Having a right stick to control the camera would be a godsend. Not to mention proper online play with good netcode.

Not all, there's also the manner of how local multiplayer works. Dissidia on handheld gives each player his own screen instead of split-screen. & given Japan being more handheld focused, Square could still prefer that.

Nevermind the controls, the real news would be if the camera isn't dogshit.

Dissidia, I love you, but holy shit. Playing indoor stages with that camera was a nightmare.
