How has response been to Dissidia Final Fantasy NT? Are there plans to bring competitions centered around it?
Dissidia Final Fantasy NT was meant to be a major reboot for the beloved fighting game series, especially since its the first console release for the franchise. However, despite the buildup and hype, Square Enix has noted that the game has performed below expectations. And what’s more, the game hasn’t been doing many eSports tournaments. However, there is hope for more:
“While we are unable to confirm anything at this time, we are in discussions with the goal to hold more events both physically and digitally,” said Mat Kishimoto, senior product marketing manager at Square Enix America. “Our ambition would be to have events not just in Southern California but all over North America and South America. We want to make sure the game is as accessible as possible to everyone.”
For right now, things are a bit uncertain, so if you’re a fan of Dissidia Final Fantasy NT, cross your fingers that the game will blow up on the eSports scene.
