Dissidia Duodecim gets a Proper World Map

December 8, 2010

While most websites online will be focusing on the fact that Final Fantasy VIII's absent father, army man and kinda-sorta hero Laguna Loire will be joining the fight in Dissidia Duodecim Final Fantasy, a closer look at the scan from this week's Jump reveals something new and interesting: a world map.

Below the introduction to Laguna in the magazine there's a box which says "Some sort of world map has appeared?!" - it shows screenshots of a traditional FF-looking world map and of Lightning, Kain and Tifa walking around the map.

The text tells us that the game will have a PS1-era style world map in full 3D where players can run around with a party of three characters of their choice, old-school style. There's no word in the magazine on how the world map feature will factor into the story. Closer inspection reveals that it's the world map from Final Fantasy I in its entirety, though it's unlikely that it'll feature Final Fantasy I locations you can enter.

You can see the full story on Laguna's entry into the Dissidia series and the full-page version of the scan over in this story.
