If there’s one type of Final Fantasy game that’s popular on mobile devices, it’s “collect heroes from other Final Fantasy games and have them fight for you”. Final Fantasy Record Keeper and Final Fantasy Brave Exvius already provide turn-based FF mash-ups. Now we have a new entry to this growing sub-genre, and that’s Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia.
The game was shown off in a trailer, which gives a general idea of how it works. Similar to the Dissidia series of video games, you’ll partake in battles by using bravery attacks to earn bravery points before converting those points into HP attacks to actually do damage. Unlike the past Dissidia games, Opera Omnia is a turn-based RPG rather than a fighting game. The trailer shows characters able to jump in to assist during combat, allowing them to perform combos.
The trailer also showed off some of the characters would be joining your party. It seems like if the character was in one of the Dissidia games then there was a safe bet they’ll be in your party at some point or another. In addition to this, we got to see quite a few new characters that have yet to show up in the series. Final Fantasy IV‘s Yang and Edge, VI‘s Setzer, IX‘s Vivi and Steiner, and Type-0‘s Rem and King were just some of the new faces that we see in the trailer. The trailer ends saying that the game will be available to download on iOS and Android some time in January.
Opera Omnia isn’t the only Dissidia game releasing in January. PlayStation 4 owners can also grab Dissidia Final Fantasy NT on January 30th, a fighting game that sees various heroes from the Final Fantasy series come together to beat the snot out of each other.
