Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Expanding its Roster With the Iconic Tifa Lockhart


Since releasing Dissidia Final Fantasy NT on PS4 last year, Square Enix and developer Team Ninja have continued to support the game with a steady flow of new characters, but the latest addition to the brawler will likely generate a little more excitement than the rest – yes, Final Fantasy VII’s Tifa Lockhart is joining the fight next week. Two other Final Fantasy VII characters, Cloud and Sephiroth, are already in the game. You can check out a Tifa trailer, below.

New Final Fantasy VII Information to Be Shared Next Month to Celebrate Game’s 25th Anniversary, Tetsuya Nomura Confirms

Tifa has been in the news recently for, uh, extremely Internet-ey reasons. Last week it made the rounds that the very serious people at Square Enix’s ethics department had insisted the size of Tifa’s chest be reduced for the upcoming Final Fantasy VII Remake. This elicited exactly the response you’d expect. Later it was clarified that Tifa’s dimensions weren’t changing, she was simply being given proper supportive undergarments for FF7’s HD debut. Based on the trailer above, it seems like Team Ninja may not have fully read the memo on Tifa’s new wardrobe.

Haven’t tried Dissidia Final Fantasy NT? Wccftech’s Dave Aubrey criticized the game for a lack of content in his initial review, but the game has expanded since then. Recent additions to the roster include Yuna from Final Fantasy X, Snow Villiers from Final Fantasy XIII, and Zenos yae Galvus from Final Fantasy XIV.

Tifa Lockhart will join the roster on July 3 in Japan. A Western release date has yet to be confirmed, although it will likely be the same. We also don’t know for sure how much Tifa will set players back, although past DLC characters have cost $6 to download individually.

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is available on PC and PS4. The game is available in a standard edition, which includes 28 base characters, and a free edition, which includes a rotating selection of four fighters.
