In this day and age of video gaming, waiting for a release date can be very hard, especially with the uncertainty that follows certain games. If something is a new IP for example, you honestly don’t know how it’s going to play. Or, if something starts out on one kind of platform, but then grows into something on another, you’re going to wonder if the transition was good. For Square Enix, this is something that’s going through the minds of their fans with Dissidia Final Fantasy NT.
For the original duo of Dissidia titles came out on the PSP, but Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is coming out on the PS4. This is no doubt a great thing, as the console can no doubt handle what’s going to be on screen, but, with new gameplay formats like the 3v3 battles, there is a bit of worry about how it’s going to play.
Thankfully, Square Enix is giving fans the chance to allay those fears via a beta that’ll be available in January:

Having 9 days to play Dissidia Final Fantasy NT will be big in many ways, not the least of which is it’ll give Square Enix the chance to change things should players find out something. More than likely, it’ll be balance issues that’ll be fixed within the first week of the game’s release. But even these small changes could have a big impact on the game.
After all, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT features a lineup of characters from every single major Final Fantasy game, and characters from Type-0 and Final Fantasy Tactics. So this is going to be a true collection of the franchise in an epic fighting game.
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT arrives on PS4 on January 30th, 2018.
