Dissidia II Will Happen, If Fans Want It

Written by Darryl — 01 Feb 2009

So far, Dissidia: Final Fantasy can't be seen as anything other than a huge success. It outsold Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII in a very small period of time and it continues to sell reasonably well on the PSP almost 2 months after its initial release. It's inevitable that Square Enix are already planning a full-blown sequel to capitalise on their new found riches, right? Wrong.

Tetsuya Nomura has disclosed that while Dissidia II was something at the front of their minds, other projects have gained more importance and Dissidia II has been shelved indefinitely. However, he did leave the door open by claiming that if enough fans ask Square Enix to make the game, they will strongly consider developing a sequel.

This is effectively the same thing as saying "there will be a Dissidia II", as almost 1,000,000 Japanese gamers have bought the game so far, and only positive things have been circulated. Whether or not it actually happens remains to be seen, but Tetsuya Nomura wants to make it and he has considerable weight within Square Enix.
