Game news This episode of Final Fantasy could make its unexpected comeback, its creator wants to make a new game
The Final Fantasy saga is undoubtedly one of the most extensive in the entire video game landscape. In addition to its 16 main episodes, it actually offers a whole bunch of spin-offs. As one of them prepares to close its doors, a new one could perhaps appear.
An unexpected return for this Final Fantasy?
If you are a fan of the saga Final Fantasy, you necessarily know the 16 episodes of its main line. But would you be able to name all the spin-off episodes that may have been developed in parallel? Among them, we find in particular the famous Dissidia: Final Fantasy, a fighting game released in the late 2000s on PSP. Very popular with players, this parallel license has not, however, had many different episodes. The latest, Dissidia Final Fantasy: Opera Omniawas also a mobile game which mixed role-playing and combat system inspired by the PSP game. Unfortunately, the latter will soon close its doors on February 29, the same day as the arrival of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.
If the game did not make as much noise as an episode of the main branch, it must be admitted that Dissidia Final Fantasy: Opera Omnia had a pretty solid fan base. Rather than leaving them completely orphaned in a few weeks, the creator Tetsuya Nomura (at the origin of many Final Fantasy games, including Dissidia) wanted to reassure them by offering to publish the entire history of the mobile game on YouTube. It must be said that the latter served as a bit of an ultimate mix between all the universes of the saga, and that its story had convinced many of its players.
A few days ago, Tetsuya Nomura also took stock of the Dissidia Final Fantasy: Opera Omnia experience. He thus underlined the quality of the work of the teams responsible for the scenario and thanked the fans for being so passionate about this mobile game. If making the decision to close the game’s doors seems heartbreaking for Nomura, however, he assures that he is currently thinking about what the future of the Dissidia Final Fantasy license could be. He even mentions the possibility of a probable return of this series, even if he has not made anything official yet. We hope that he will manage to follow through with his idea, and that it will have a better scope than the last Dissidia Final Fantasy: Opera Omnia.
Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth prepares for its arrival
If you enjoyed Final Fantasy VII Remake when it was released, you are probably impatiently awaiting the arrival of its sequel! I have to say that Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is still expected for February 29, 2024, or just a few weeks. Recently, Square Enix’s game has started to reveal itself a little by communicating its total weight, and suffice to say that you will have to make space on your PlayStation 5 if you want to be able to install it on it. Even better, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth was especially entitled to its own State of Play a few days ago during which we were able to discover a large portion of gameplay.
But if you’re the type who wants to test it out for yourself before throwing yourself into a game, know that the developers had the brilliant idea of releasing a Final Fantasy VII Rebirth demo! Already available on the PlayStation Store, it should keep you in suspense for a good 90 minutes. We have already tested it for you, and you can find our opinion by clicking here. Now all you have to do is arm yourself with a little patience before discovering the rest of the adventures of Cloud and his gang.
