The Story of DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY NT
Hi DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY NT party people!
We only got a few more months until its launch and I wanted to touch on a subject near and dear to FINAL FANTASY fans, myself included.
And that, is the story.
What is the story of DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY NT? And who wrote it?
Well first on the story itself, we’re not going to spoil this story for you here… that would be the worst!! I mean who wants the story spoiled? For you fans out there, did anyone spoil the ending of FINAL FANTASY VII for you? Or FINAL FANTASY XV? Well, it happened to me on both games – and it was THE WORST DAY IN HIGH SCHOOL! On FFVII, it was my friends in high school who sped through the game in a few days and couldn’t hold back on telling me. BAH! I’m still salty!
But FFXV, I had to know the ending since I worked on the marketing for it. haha so maybe it’s not the same.
But my point is, it’s terrible when someone spoils the story of a FINAL FANTASY for you!
With great pleasure, I want to let you all know, that Mr. Kazushige Nojima is working on the story for DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY NT.
His track record is amazing, I mean come on. Look at this resume! We’re truly blessed to have Mr. Nojima overseeing the story for this project.

I was lucky enough to interview him for the artbook featured in the Ultimate Collector’s Edition. I don’t want to spoil too much here, but I picked my favorite answer he gave, just to give you a taste of the full interview.
How difficult (or easy) is it to write a story that incorporates the entire legacy of FINAL FANTASY?
Each character has their own fans and they are all loved equally. Creating a story can be easy or it can be difficult, depending on how much one chooses to respond to that love. Of course, like I usually do, I challenged myself and took the difficult route with this story.
I don’t know about you, but incorporating and showing love to every FINAL FANTASY character sounds impossible, so we hope you not only get to experience what Mr. Nojima means by the “difficult route he took”, but also the full interview in the artbook – his other answers are pretty awesome. You probably didn’t even know there were interviews in the artbook, did you?
And of course, you can experience the full story in DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY NT on January 30th, 2018!
