The Dissidia Final Fantasy PS4 version of the arcade fighting game will feature a story campaign and ‘other elements,’ according to producer Ichirou Hazama in an interview with Japanese magazine Famitsu.
“Many users are expecting a story for the console version, which we are of course preparing,” said Hazama.
“However, the focus of the game is battles and that has not changed. We will further enhance other elements as well, which will take a little bit more time.” Hazama did not reveal what the enhancements will be.
Dissidia’s director Takeo Kujiraoka has hopes for the game to become an esport, saying, “If we can export it to the world as a high-proficiency, competitive fighting tool, while also an enjoyable team battle Final Fantasy, it might even rise up as an e-Sports event.”
“If that happens, then next will be a global tournament, right? I can’t say too much, but I want to use these sorts of ambitions to make Dissidia Final Fantasy an even better game.”
Dissidia Final Fantasy is a reboot of the PlayStation Portable series of the same name and was launched for arcade back in 2012. The games feature characters from past Final Fantasy titles and new ones in an action RPG - fighting game hybrid.
