Dissidia: Final Fantasy TGS 08 gameplay videos

Square had Dissidia: Final Fantasy playable at the 2008 Tokyo Game Show. Dissidia does not have an announced release date outside of Japan (where it hits on December 18th) but Square Enix would be foolish not to release this celebration of the Final Fantasy series 20th anniversary stateside.

If you haven’t heard of Dissidia, it is an upcoming PSP “fighting” game where you use everyone’s favorite characters from the entire Final Fantasy universe and fight in one-on-one duels with other all-star characters. You can think of it as Square Enix’s answer to Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. Brawl (although it’s apparently only a single or two-player game, no hint of online support).

Major characters that you can play as in Dissida include: Titus from Final Fantasy X, Squall from Final Fantasy VIII, Kefka from Final Fantasy VI, Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII, Zidane from Final Fantasy IX, Cecil from Final Fantasy IV, Garland from Final Fantasy I and, of course, Cloud from Final Fantasy VII (although he’s yet to be fully revealed), among many others. The group of heroes and villains is truly an all-star cast.

And like Super Smash Bros., the game does not play like a traditional fighting game. As you can see in these gameplay trailers from the 2008 Tokyo Game Show.

And here are the previously released Characters trailer and the second released trailer for the game.
