DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY NT Free Edition coming to Steam and PS4

Battle fan favorite FINAL FANTASY characters online - absolutely free!

You know who I hate? Kefka.

Sure, he’s one of the greatest villains of all time, but after the shenanigans he gets up to in FINAL FANTASY VI… well, he’s one seriously messed up dude.

That’s one of the reasons I adore DISSIDA FINAL FANTASY NT so much - there are few things as satisfying as flinging fireballs into his evil, gurning clown-face. For me, it justified the cost of the game alone.

But now things are even better - with the March 12 release of DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY NT Free Edition, you can play the game at no cost at all on PS4 and - for the first time - on Steam.


As the name implies, DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY NT Free Edition is a free to play version of the epic team-based fighting game.

Developed by Team NINJA from KOEI TECMO GAMES, it lets you choose a character from the FINAL FANTASY series, and compete in three-on-three arena battles, in a variety of classic locations from the games.

The Free Edition lets you take up to four characters from the roster online, to compete against other players who have either the Free Edition, or the full original retail release.

What’s more, the four characters you have access to rotates each week, so you’ll regularly be able to try out new fighters, with different styles.

But what do I do if I find a fighter I like?

I’m glad you asked that question (or rather, I asked it on your behalf). If a member of the roster works for you, you can buy characters and weapons individually. You’ll then be able to use that character, even if he or she rotates out of the weekly selection

Alternatively, you can pick up the complete edition of the game. This gives you access to the full selection - more than 25 fighters - as well as extra single player content like Story Mode.

How do I get DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY NT Free Edition?

You don’t have to wait long to get your hands on the free version of the game - it’ll be released for PlayStation 4 and Steam on March 12, 2019.

If you can’t wait until then, or you want to join me in giving Kefka his just desserts, the full DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY NT game is available to buy now on PS4.
