Dissidia Final Fantasy Could Feature Noctis After His Appearance in FFXV

One of the key characters in the highly awaited Final Fantasy XV is Noctis. Team Ninja’s Yosuke Hayashi, Koei Tecmo director Takeo Kujiraoka and Square Enix producer Ichiro Hazama, spoke during an interview about the possibility of Noctis making an appearance in Dissidia Final Fantasy.

Kujiraoka said that the team is thinking about his appearance and how he can use his Phantom Sword.

We’re thinking about it, of course. He would likely use something like his ‘Phantom Swords’.

Hayashi added:

There are even some among us that have been thinking about it, saying ‘if Noctis will be in it, how will he perform those warps?

Lastly, Hazama shared his thoughts on the matter by saying:

However, this will have to be after Final Fantasy XV releases. It would be a bit too much to play as a Final Fantasy XV character in arcades right after the demo.

Since Team Ninja is a part of the development, developers were asked if we will see some characters from Dead or Alive in Dissidia Final Fantasy. Hayashi responded to this by saying that the game is being developed with Final Fantasy fans in mind, so it’s best that Team Ninja’s role is limited to providing technology, experience and know how.

Developers are planning to add around 50 characters, so there is a chance we may see characters from other games. However, Hayashi said FF is a franchise with plenty of characters, so we won’t be short on choices.
