Dissidia Final Fantasy’s Menu Details

Dissidia Final Fantasy

Update: I’ve made a quick guide for beginners here.

Famitsu uploaded four direct screens of their latest report on Dissidia Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy IV’s Barbariccia above is one of the latest summons to be revealed (Leviathan and Bomb can be seen in the scans). There are character arts of Cefca, branded as a Trickster by the developers, and Tina, a Magic Master. Let’s get to the menu, something important for us importer and non-Japanese speaker :)

Dissidia Final Fantasy

Story Mode
Select a character, battle your way through and check out their story. Story will be different based on the character you selected.
Quick Battle
No story elements here, just head straight into fighting. Experience points earned in these fights can be carried over to the Story Mode.
Communication Mode
Fight with your friends via the Ad Hoc Mode here. “Surechigai Tsushin” is mentioned here too, not sure about the details but Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G or Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops Plus players will be familiar with this. It basically involves turning on your game and the Wi-Fi mode all the time so that when another player who do the same is around, there will be some form of data exchange.
PP Catalog
Buy costumes and battle BGM here with your PP, the points your character earned from battles in Story Mode and Quick Battle.
Museum
Check out movies unlocked in the game or battle BGM purchased in PP Catalog.
Player Data
Beside normal stuff like changing your name, it seems that you can plan your play time here.

Option
Adjust all the typical game settings here. Data Install can be found here as well.

The Customize Menu found under Player Data, the Chocobo in the screen will move forward as you fight more battles. When it touches an item on the screen, there will be extra experience points or special items for you.

Abilities, Items, Accessories, Summons and EX Mode
The first five menu items, customize these items here.
Battlerize
During battles, there will be conditions like inflicting certain amount of Brave Point damage to a character that can invoke Battlerize, a system that will unlock certain materials. These materials can then be used to exchange for rare items in the Shop.
Missions
Get even more items by playing through missions.

Shop
Buy items with Gils earned during battles.

As mentioned previously, there are options to install certain amount of data to your Memory Stick to reduce the load time. Another nice touch is you can choose to install 245Mb, 373Mb or 528Mb of data and the installation screen is Final Fantasy V.

    Metallimaniac,

    There will be a costume option. Every character will have at least one alternate costume. As you hoped, Squall’s will be his SeeD costume, but Cloud’s will be his AC costume, which makes much more sense, as Zack and Cloud have different fighting styles. They’d have to make him fight differently in the alt costume.

    The game puts you in control of a four-man team of augmented cyber-warriors in various infiltration missions.
    Be cautioned though, if you’re not going
    to throw down a couple of bucks– as in, spend for the video
    game instead of consider it a giveaway – you’ll be investing numerous hrs between construct times puddling your thumbs.
    Lastly, one can have fun by creating and edit ringtone and message
    alerts by the Ring droid app.
