Square Enix began streaming an open beta trailer on Tuesday for Dissidia Final Fantasy NT, the PlayStation 4 version of the Dissidia Final Fantasy arcade game. The trailer previews the game's cast and the four battle types featured in the game.
The open beta test is running from January 12 through 21 on PlayStation 4.
The beta test features 15 playable characters that will change periodically throughout the test. The test also features two modes: a ranked match mode, where players can join two other players or team up with friends in 3 vs. 3 online multiplayer party battles in over 12 different arenas, and Gauntlet Mode, which is an offline single player mode where players are paired with 2 AI companions in 3 vs. 3 battles.
The game shipped in Japan on January 11. The game will ship in North America and Europe on January 30.
The North American release will have four editions. The launch edition will come with the game, mini soundtrack, and Nameless Warrior DLC. The digital deluxe edition will include these bonuses and a season pass for other DLC including six additional playable characters and weapons for each. The SteelBook Case Brawler Edition includes three Final Fantasy trading cards and one of three SteelBook designs (randomly selected). Finally, the Ultimate Collector's Edition includes the trading cards, a different exclusive SteelBook, the DLC season pass, collector's box, soundtrack, 84-page art book, and 8.25-inch Warrior of Light bust.
The game features a 3 vs. 3 battle system, 28 heroes and villains, and 14 stages. The game also includes a summons gauge that players can use to summon Ifrit and other popular Final Fantasy summons when the gauge is full. KOEI Tecmo Games' Team Ninja (Dead or Alive series) developed the arcade game, which uses technology from a PlayStation 4 core system instead of a dedicated arcade circuit board.
Dissidia Final Fantasy launched in Japanese arcades in November 2015. Square Enix also 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.
