This list is more likely to be our final base roster for Dissidia.

  1. Warrior of Light
  2. Garland
  3. Firion
  4. Onion Knight
  5. Cloud of Darkness
  6. Cecil
  7. Kain
  8. Golbez
  9. Bartz
  10. Exdeath
  11. Terra
  12. Kekfa
  13. Cloud
  14. Sephiroth
  15. Squall
  16. Ultimecia
  17. Zidane
  18. Kuja
  19. Tidus
  20. Jecht
  21. Shantotto
  22. Vaan
  23. Lightning
  24. Y'shtola
  25. Noctis
  26. Ramza
  27. Ace

Since we know there would be a season pass for 6 characters, I guess it might take the team four more years until they finally meet their goal, since they want to hit 50 characters roster. Also it may only take a season to get last 6 veterans character but I think they would spread it over two seasons.
To be honest I have a gut feeling Gabranth will be part of the base roster. No real reason why I think that but, to me, it'd seem weird that out of all the main entries that already has a Hero + Villain rep in the Dissidia series that XII would be the one left out. As for possible characters for a season pass, I'd feel Yuna and Tifa are really the most likely to be included in the first 6 characters while Laguna, Prishe, and Gilgamesh are pushed off for later. They just don't seem to have the the fanbase clamoring for their return like Yuna and Tifa plus if I was selling a season pass for the game, I'd make it a point to include mostly new characters in it and not have it just be returning ones.

thank you! now for the shipping...does it matter wich one you chose? surely y pre-ordering it you shoud get it on the release day?
As far as I remember, I've done Super Saver Shipping for all of my orders with the Square Enix store (cause it's ridiculous to pay so much for shipping) and they've always arrived either on or 1 day after the release date.

Happened with, for example, my FFXV UCE and my NieR Automata Black Box Edition.

I loooooove Dissidia, but this version doesn't look great and it seems to be a major cash grab. Why couldn't they have released something similar to the PSP versions? :/ Anyway, I'll probably pick it up when it gets cheaper.

Well, they already announced 4 character announcements back to back, starting this month (which is Jecht) and end with November, so we are aware that we are going to get villains for those four months which are Jecht, Ultimecia, Cloud of Darkness, and Golbez, then we are supposedly to see Noctis's reveal so I presume he might get his announcement like few weeks before release date.

I'm gonna get this day one and I've been waiting years for a third one but I totally agree that it seems unfinished roster wise, especially when they said that they planned to have 50 characters when there was only the Arcade version announced. I really dislike the idea of multiple season passes so I hope that isn't a thing.

I mean there aren't villain counterparts for XIV, Type-0 , XV or XI either.... Id love for them to put in Zenos from Stormblood as the XIV baddie.

Maybe later for the complete version. Not gonna pay $100 for all the characters.
Give or take 4 years if you can wait, I just want Noctis XD

Should be cheap by then, same with MvCI.. although the issues with MvCI is the cheapness of the whole game presentation wise. This sentiment is really prevelant throughout this gen I think it's a sign of the times.

i wish I could say I'm excited for this game, but the removal of a proper story mode, the removal of most/all RPG elements, and what looks like no CGI cinematics whatsoever, makes this a major letdown for me.

I am all in for Day One despite the story mode being watered down from the originals (though this was expected: Dissidia was designed for PSP to be largely single player). Still waiting to see what the level and weapon systems entail. The game looks a bit bland without a strong customization system in place.

Weapons are just cosmetic.

Season pass typically means all future DLC right? The wording here makes it sound like it's a partial pass of some kind.
Probably a partial pass, games as a service tend to do this sort of thing these days. People forget this is a GAAS game through and through and not a traditional 'experience'. I honestly think it might have worked better F2P, or atleast a F2P option similar to another Team Ninja game, DOA5R

To be fair to your last point, there's no point in wasting Visual works CGI on this game when the in game engine and real time character models are so good as it is.

You forgot Emperor.

I do hope we get at least all of the originals back before release. Paying for a season pass that is mostly just 012 veterans would be lame.

I'd rather that CE steelbook honestly. Again with the monstrously overpriced CEs though SE. I'm willing to even pay double for a nice CE. More than 3 times though? Fuck off.

I don't agree. Since CGI is still leaps and bounds ahead it's still always a reward and an enhancement to the presentation, IMO.

I see. How do levels work in the Arcade version?
Character level is for unlocking ingame voice quotes for your current character, unlocking costumes/recolors, HP attacks etc. and it effects matchmaking.

HP attacks are unlocked at lvl 2,5, and 10.

The higher the rank you receive in the battle, the more experience you get. You get more for winning.

You also get exp based on your account level.

I would say it doesn't make sense for a mid to low budget arena fighting game like this, outsourced to team ninja who generally don't do CGI or prerendered cutscenes at all.

While I adored old Dissidia games, my purchase of this one is dictated by two things only:

1. Have they redone the godawful battle UI?
2. Is there a 1v1 mode?
Even if there is a 1v1, I wouldn't expect it to be particularly good. The game is balanced for 3v3, so I can imagine scenarios where some characters can be completely shut down or dominant in a 1v1 setting

It's a FF game and even most spin-offs get some CGI, and Square Enix has made CGI for PLENTY of outsourced games.
sure, but team ninja proper rarely uses it in individual games, and sparingly even then. Again, they must have made the calculation that their in game graphics are good enough to stand on their own without needing CGI either from Omega force's CGI team or visual works from SE, and i can't really disagree with their conclusion

Day one. Really excited for the beta next week.

Hope we're getting more than six DLC characters though. I'll be really disappointed if that's all we end up getting for this game.

Who are the 012 veterans left?

Laguna, Yuna, Gilgamesh, Prishe?

Are those two, plus Gabranth and Noctis essentially going to be our DLC? That would kinda suck, I reaally want Eald'narshe or just proper villain reps for XI->XV

Ehh. I'm still not sure if I want to buy this day one. I think playing the beta will show me if the game clicks with me or not.

If Gabranth is the only original character cut for DLC I will be mad. Should have not included Kain before making sure every 013 veteran came back.

6 DLC characters is really weak considering how many awesome characters are in the FF franchise. I can think of six characters from FF6 alone that would be amazing additions to this game. I really hope they do more than 6.
