Square Enix announced on Monday that it has delayed the Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia smartphone game to 2017. Square Enix aims to release the game in "early" 2017. The game was previously slated to release this year on iOS and Android devices. Square Enix stated that the delay was necessary to improve the quality of one part of the game.
Square Enix also confirmed that new characters will join the game, including Galuf Halm Baldesion (Final Fantasy V), Sephiroth (Final Fantasy VII), Squall (Final Fantasy VIII), Eiko (Final Fantasy IX), Shantotto (Final Fantasy XI), Vanille (Final Fantasy XIII), and Ace (Final Fantasy Type-0).
Other confirmed characters in the game include: Warrior of Light (Final Fantasy), Firion (Final Fantasy II), Onion Knight (Final Fantasy III), Cecil Harvey (Final Fantasy IV), Bartz Klauser (Final Fantasy V), Terra Branford (Final Fantasy VI), Cloud Strife (Final Fantasy VII), Seifer Almasy (Final Fantasy VIII), Zidane Tribal (Final Fantasy IX), Yuna (Final Fantasy X), Vaan (Final Fantasy XII), Hope Estheim (Final Fantasy XIII), Y'shtola (Final Fantasy XIV), and Rem Tokimiya (Final Fantasy Type-0). The site lists one more unannounced character from Final Fantasy XI.
Square Enix is running a pre-registration campaign for the game where the more people pre-register for the game, the more free items those who pre-register will receive when the game arrives. The game will be free to play, but in-game items will cost extra.
Square Enix released Dissidia Final Fantasy, a PlayStation Portable fighting game featuring Final Fantasy heroes and villains, in 2008 in Japan, and in 2009 in other parts of the world. The company then released the Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy sequel in 2011 for the PSP with new characters, stages, and story.
