God. That name is surely the spawn of some foul nether creature. Anyway Square Enix just announced that Dissidia duodecim prologus Final Fantasy will be will be available for download exclusively on the PlayStation Network beginning March 15, 2011.
Of course the question remains: What the hell is a Dissidia duodecim prologus Final Fantasy? Hit the jump for more details.
Prologus is a just the fancy name for the prologue to the upcoming Dissidia 012[duodecim] Final Fantasy game for PSP. And starting now, I’m not typing out the full title for the rest of this article. According to the press release,Prologus focuses on Final Fantasy XIII heroine Lightning.
Essentially Prologus is a demo for the full game, however it also marks the first time that Lightning will be a playable character outside of Final Fantasy XIII. Prologus will cost $2.99, but it will come with a couple of bonuses to make up for the price.
By purchasing Prologus, players can unlock the hugely popular Final Fantasy VII character, Aerith (I still call her Aeris) Gainsborough, as an Assist Character. Also there are several carry over items that will transfer from Prologus to the full game when it releases on March 22, 2011.
I liked Lightning, even though I ended up disliking FF XIII. I think it’ll be cool to see her in another game, but even with the carry over features, I can’t see myself paying money for what is essentially a demo. Square Enix could take a page out of BioWare’s book which granted players an item for completing the (free) Dragon Age II demo. Anybody going to try out Dissidia duodecim prologus Final Fantasy? (Damn, I broke my promise).
