Fans will find those fists pretty familiar.
Yesterday, the fighting crossover, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT, got an announcement for its next DLC character in the form of Final Fantasy 7‘s primary female protagonist, Tifa Lockhart. The boxing fanatic got demoed today ahead of the official release, which fans should find familiar.
In a livestream from publisher Square Enix (which you can view in its entirety below), we got the first look at how the character will play, along with her costumes and weapons. She’s a speed-based character and, just like her original incarnation, uses her fists in combat, along with a swift kick or two. Her weapon of choice does get some enhancements, however, with various gloves. You can check those out below, some of which will look very familiar to Final Fantasy 7 fans.
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is available now for PlayStation 4 and PC. Tifa will release June 27th to Japanese arcades, July 2nd on PC, and then July 3rd for PS4. Look for her in the much anticipated remake of Final Fantasy 7 as well.
