Dissidia Final Fantasy NT coming to North America early ’18 for PS4

Square Enix is getting back into the brawler business with Dissidia Final Fantasy NT. The follow-up to 2011’s Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy is actually a reboot of the series, however, rather than of a direct continuation. The team-based fighter was co-developed by Koei Tecmo Games and Team Ninja, and is set to make its home debut early next year. The game will feature solo and online multiplayer, a roster of over 20 characters, and three-versus-three combat. Fans of the series can learn more by streaming a panel with producer Ichiro Hazama, director Takeo Kujiraoka, Justin Wong of Echo Fox, and K-Brad at the E3 Coliseum on Tuesday, June 13, at 3:15 p.m. (PST).

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice to launch online for PC, PS4 on August 8

Ninja Theory has revealed that they will be releasing their latest action title Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice on August 8. The studio is positioning it as something of a AAA-lite title, clocking in at about half the time of most games but being priced accordingly at around half off the going rate, $29.99. The story follows Senua, a Celtic warrior who must make her way through the Viking underworld. The studio worked with “neuroscientists and people who experience psychosis” in order to more accurately convey a journey through Senua’s mind. Pre-order bonuses were also announced, with PS4 players receiving a dynamic theme featuring the game’s burning-tree scene, while PC players receive a digital comic short titled Hellblade: Senua’s Song from Valiant Entertainment.

I’d go for the former. No shame in admitting that. Additional assistance can be found in an in-game Academy that teaches players the finer points of the system’s mechanics. Dirt 4 also features Your Stage, which is said to “produce a near infinite number of unique rally stages at the touch of a button.”
