Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Gets a January Release Date

Team Ninja's Final Fantasy fighting game is heading to North America.

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT, Team Ninja's RPG fighting game based on the popular Square Enix RPG series, will come out on January 30th for the PS4.

As part of the release announcement, Square Enix released a five minute tutorial video that lays out what to expect from Dissidia Final Fantasy NT. The game will feature a team-based approach to combat allowing a player and two allies to fight against opposing teams. You'll be able to customize your character's HP and moveset, and choose from a roster made up of four category types: Heavy, Speed, Shoot, and Unique.

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is currently out on Japanese arcade machines, but come January will be available on home consoles. Square Enix is offering an Ultimate Collector's Edition for the game to purchase on the Square Enix Online Store. The Collector's Edition comes with the usual suspects including a steelbook case, collector's box, a Warrior of Light figurine, 15-track soundtrack, 80-page artbook, and the Season Pass for the game. It is available for a hefty $189.99 price.

A closed beta for Dissidia Final Fantasy NT will run in North America from August 25 through September 3. You can sign up for the beta on the official website, and selected players will receive an email with more details about the beta.

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is a follow-up to Dissidia Final Fantasy and Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy, both developed by Square Enix and released for the PlayStation Portable. NT by contrast is being developed for the PS4 by Koei Tecmo's Team Ninja who previously worked on games like Dead or Alive, Ninja Gaiden, and Metroid: Other M.
