Dissidia: Final Fantasy Universal Tuning: Mogli Events & Data Transfer

Dissidia: Final Fantasy Universal Tuning

I think quite a few of you here bought the Japanese version of Dissidia Final Fantasy. So will you get Dissidia: Final Fantasy Universal Tuning as well? I’m not sure actually, English voice, the tuning and the new additions seem attractive but probably not at full price again…

Previous reports told us Universal Tuning will has extra scenes, voice-over for some of the previously text-only scenes, the inclusion of English voice, Arcade Mode and Level 100-150 enemies in Duel Colosseum. However, there are more content to justify the price, as shown from the screens after the jump.

Dissidia On PSP For Single Screen Multiplayer & Radiant Mythology 2 Almost Delayed Due To Tales of Innocence

Dissidia Final Fantasy

We have just past the halfway point of the year and Weekly Famitsu has a feature that offers a look at the big gaming news in the last six months. The feature also lists the five best selling game of each month and developers from the top sellers were asked to share the “secrets that can only be revealed now” of their titles. PSP have a couple of titles, Dissidia Final Fantasy and Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology 2 are the top titles for January and February respectively, check out their “secrets” below.

Dissidia Final Fantasy

Dissidia’s Tetsuya Nomura, who proved to be the most prolific producer with two titles winning the top spot for three months ( is the winner of May and June), shares the origin of the fighting game with characters from past Final Fantasy games. It was during the development of Kingdom Hearts, when he thought it would be interesting if fighting can take place in Traverse Town. The originally intended platform was PlayStation 2 using split screens. However, when the project was green lit, Nomura felt it will be better if players can fight against each other with just one screen and decided to move the game to PSP (the same point was brought up during an interview in May 2007).

Dissidia Limited Edition Pack Announced For US

Dissidia: Final Fantasy PSP Entertainment PackAnd it isn’t cool at all… The GameStop-exclusive “Dissidia: Final Fantasy PSP Entertainment Pack” contains a Mystic Silver PSP, the game itself, Final Fantasy VII Advent Children UMD and 2Gb memory stick. There’s not even a sticker with Dissidia logo on the PSP and the cover is a mess (click on the image for larger view). I remember Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII sold quite well when it was launched in US, looks like it’s not enough to justify special edition PSP (Japanese version can be viewed here). At $200, should be a good deal for non-PSP owners. Also I know many of you have the Japanese version already, would you buy the English version again? I’m considering. The date is August 25th
