Square Enix's Dissidia Final Fantasy NT just got a tutorial video. The five minute clip shows us the basics from moving, guarding, and dashing to attack strategies. The game will be out in early 2018.
According to Square Enix's E3 lineup, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is a team-based brawler which pits legendary heroes and villains from the Final Fantasy universe against each other in "epic and strategic" 3 vs. 3 battles. You will be able to choose a team from a roster of more than 20 Final Fantasy characters, across ten battle arenas.
Players will collect experience points in order to unlock EX skills, weapons, skins and more. The game will be available in early 2018 for PlayStation 4. Even though the release date is a long way off, Final Fantasy YouTube channel shared a tutorial video for Dissidia Final Fantasy NT.
The first thing you'll want to do is choose your character type. There will be four different character types on offer: Vanguard, Specialist, Marksman, and Assassin.
Each type has different stats, so the Vanguard will be slower than an Assassin but have more wide-ranged attacks that deal more significant damage. Assassins will in turn be able to jump twice while airborne.
Marksmen will, you guessed it, be good at long range attacks, but they will be useless at close quarter combat. Specialists will hang around, using their "unique" skills to enhance their party members.
After you've weighed your options and chose the right character for you, you'll be faced with yet another choice: Battle sets. The set you choose, further fleshes out your abilities in battle. You will also be able to call summons to your aid. They will either weaken your enemies or buff your own stats.
So the battle has begun. You should now get to know the controls such as: you move with the left stick, camera is controlled using the right stick and so on. The tutorial goes on to explain the game's interface and combat mechanics.
