I got the game and have played it for a week, give or take a day or two, and I think it's pretty cool. Definitely a "must-have".

Only two disappointments I have...watch the Now Playing vid of this, you'll see the character select screen. You'll see they have 10 empty spaces for characters. However, after researching the game that's out in Japan, those spaces are not getting filled. We have space on the game that can easily be filled, and it's not getting filled. Secondly, I understand why maybe not every FF will get a new character(though they can still add more), there really isn't much a reasoning to not include more stages. But it would appear each game in the series is getting either one or the other. Either a new stage, or a new character. XI, XII, and XIII being the only exceptions due to them not being fully represented in the first game. They said something about DLC, so I expect to see downloadable characters and stages(though let me guess, I'm going to have to pay for material that could've been in right from the start?)

Maybe they should ask him why the game is incomplete. It has only one person from XIII.

The last one became a dust collector in 1 or 2 days. This one looks like the next dust collector..only not mines. Yours if you buy it.

Is this an old interview? He said he could only reveal 4 new characters when we know that Laguna and Yuna wil also be involved and that Aerith is a possible Assist character. Didn't reveal anything we didn't already know. Disappointed.

I hope I can use the first Dissidia's save games. I've played it for at least 120 hours, doing all that levelling and it sucks if I get my hands on Duodecim and I'd have to start all over again.

@Mc_Trickz IMO it would be better to use Zack as Cloud's alternate outfit like in Tekken games (if you purchase Christie's alternate outfit, you can play as Eddy). They both use the same sword and fighting style, only change the voice acting.

[quote="OrNiGhTZ"]so its just lightning that was added, don't see any other difference from the first game[/quote] Try opening your eyes. ;) Lightning, Tifa, Vaan, Prishe, Gilgamesh, Kain, Laguna. At least 3 new Stages. New Songs, New Costumes. A World Map. New Systems like the Assist Characters. A new Story PLUS the story of the original Dissidia with new cutscenes. And other stuff.
