Tifa Lockhart is bringing her fists to Dissidia Final Fantasy NT, Team Ninja's Final Fantasy fighting game. She will be added as a DLC character on July 2 for PC and July 3 on PlayStation 4.
After a big reveal at E3 for Final Fantasy 7 Remake, the Tifa craze continues as she joins Dissidia Final Fantasy NT's roster of playable fighters. She will be the third Final Fantasy 7 character to join the Dissidia Final Fantasy NT roster following Cloud Strife and Sephiroth.
You can watch her official reveal in the trailer below. Tifa is a speed-type fighter, and you can see her zipping across the stage and beating Sephiroth to a pulp. You can even see her Beat Rush Limit Break mechanic at the 52 second mark.
Tifa will receive a couple alternate costumes and weapons, including her outfit from the film Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children.
Dissidia Final Fantasy was first released on Japanese arcades back in 2015. A PlayStation 4 version was released worldwide in 2018 with a new "NT" subtitle. Despite the "greatest hits" feeling of being able to play as popular characters across the Final Fantasy series, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT lacks a certain smoothness its predecessors on the PSP had.
Tifa's been having something of a resurgence as of late thanks to the Final Fantasy 7 Remake. Though some small number of players are less than pleased with her redone appearance for reasons that really aren't worth getting up in arms about.
