Final Fantasy 8 fans that have been playing Dissidia Final Fantasy NT are in luck, as a character from the eighth main installment in the franchise is coming aboard. The character is Rinoa Heartilly, with Square Enix announcing that she will be joining the game’s roster at the end of August.
For those unfamiliar with the character, she served as the main love interest for protagonist Squall Leonheart. She will be added to the game’s roster via DLC, though a specific release date wasn’t provided. She’ll be joining the arcade version of the game first via the July update. A video was released showing the character in action, which you can watch at the bottom of this post.
The following is a synopsis of the game from the official website:
“Dissidia Final Fantasy NT, the next evolution in squad-based brawlers, is a fast-paced, strategic brawler where you can choose from over 20 iconic Final Fantasy characters and battle in a 3-versus-3 arena with your friends and other players online, or by yourself. The most fun comes with teaming up with or fighting against your won friends. Call upon your squad and battle other teams!”
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is available now for PlayStation 4. It is the first game in the series to be a home console release, with the first two games being PSP-exclusives. The game released earlier this year to mostly positive reviews.
