Square Enix announced on Thursday that the "Free Edition" of its Dissidia Final Fantasy NT PlayStation 4 game will launch digitally in the West on March 12. The game will be available for PlayStation 4 via the PlayStation Store and for PC via Steam.
The release will have a limited roster of characters that change weekly. Characters and weapons will also be available for purchase individually. Players with the free version of the game will be able to play online against players with the full version.
The free version of the game launched in Japan in November. The free version does not have a story mode but includes a tutorial and online battle features. The version has four playable characters to choose from that change each week.
The paid PlayStation 4 version shipped in Japan, Europe, and North America in January 2018. The game previously added DLC characters such as Snow Villiers from Final Fantasy XIII, Yuna from Final Fantasy X, Vayne from Final Fantasy XII, Locke from Final Fantasy VI, Rinoa Heartilly from Final Fantasy VIII, and Kam'lanaut from Final Fantasy XI.
The Dissidia Final Fantasy arcade game launched in Japanese arcades in November 2015. The game features a 3-vs.-3 battle system, and 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 both the arcade game and the PS4 version.
