Dissidia

A new character has been added to the arcade game Dissidia Final Fantasy currently out in Japan. Announced on the live stream earlier today, the new cast member is none other than the Primum Scelus himself, Garland. Here is the announcement video.

According to Crunchyroll he is voiced by Kōji Ishii (Garterbelt in Panty & Stocking, narrator in Terraformars) and now that I have that information I can kind of hear the similarity from Panty & Stocking, a hilarious anime. If you want to watch the archived livestream you can go to the NicoNico Live post here, but you should be warned that you need a premium account to access previous streams.

Still no word on if or when we will see this title here in the west. But given the arcade architecture that was used, it has been long theorized that a PS4 release is a matter of time. So we’ll continue to keep you updated at Operation Rainfall.

About William Haderlie

Born in the 1970's, I've been an avid participant for much of video game history. A lifetime of being the sort of supergeek entrenched in the sciences and mathematics has not curbed my appreciation for the artistry of video games, cinema, and especially literature.

    Yeah they released both Dissidias on the PSP long ago in the west; a port to the PS4 will only make sense.

    Garland is great but I am hoping for new characters, like another Tactics character (even if it is unlikely that series will get another rep).

      Agreed, I love it when FFT characters show up in other SE properties. As lukewarm as I am in general over FFRK, playing those FFT stages they recently added left me very wistful.
