Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Ending
No more Dissidia Final Fantasy NT
The developers of Dissidia Final Fantasy NT & Arcade have decided to stop updating the game. The arcade version found some success in Japan, but the console version didn’t fare as well.
The game doesn’t have much single-player content and the net code isn’t exactly perfect, crippling the game’s potential. The console version went free-to-play in November, but clearly didn’t get enough new users to save the game.
The final character added to the game was Final Fantasy XV villain Ardyn Izunia, and the servers will stay online – for now.
Game Director Takeo Kujiraoka said: “We don’t want to make false anticipations, so we want to make it clear that right now there are no plans for a [Dissidia Final Fantasy] 2 at all.”
The final update to Dissidia Final Fantasy will hit arcades on February 20th, and arrive for console on March 5th.

Final Fantasy VII started out as a noir
Final Fantasy VII is one of the most influential games of all-time, not least on Square’s own productions – but it had a long journey to get there. The game was originally intended to be a detective story starring a character named Joe.
However, the concept survived and the near-future New York noir plot ended up in Parasite Eve. Other discarded script ideas were used in Xenogears. Not only did Final Fantasy VII revolutionize gaming in 1997: It ended up inspiring two more all-time classics.
