Square Enix’s crossover fighting game Dissidia Final Fantasy NT now has a free version that’s available in Japan and Asia (supported languages include Chinese and Korean). Exclusive to the PS4, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Free Edition is on the PlayStation Store in those regions. As the name indicates, it’s free, but you still need PlayStation Plus to access online multiplayer.
Though Story Mode isn’t available, players can partake in online and offline battles. There will be four characters available, and they change on a weekly basis. Characters can be purchased (a starter pack is available as well) and they can be used at any time. Keep in mind that the weekly free characters only include those from the base version – DLC characters are not included.
Competing against those who own the full version is possible. However, if you want to try out the free version for some time and then transition to the full game, then your save data will carry over. While a release in the West hasn’t been confirmed, Exophase does have English Trophies for the same. Expect an announcement in the future, but check out the trailer below in the meantime.
