Dissidia 012 getting paid 'prologue' next week


Square Enix is giving a taste of Dissidia 012: Duodecim Final Fantasy next week, in the form of a paid prologue. Titled "Dissidia Duodecim Prologus Final Fantasy," the game will go on sale for $2.99 on the PlayStation Network on March 15.

The prologue includes a Story mode starring Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII, and quick battles in the Arcade mode. As incentive, players can unlock items in the prologue that will carry over into the main Dissidia 012 game. Plus, simply purchasing the prologue unlocks Aerith from Final Fantasy VII as an Assist character.

Dissidia 012 Duodecim launches the following week, on March 22, for the PlayStation Portable.
