Dissidia Final Fantasy just got another huge update with a fan-favorite character from the franchise. Kain Highwind, the best friend of Final Fantasy IV’s protagonist Cecil and a man of questionable loyalties, will become available as a playable character in Square Enix’s hit arcade game on July 28.
I don’t know if we are going to label him as a protagonist or an antagonist…
As expected, the dragoon knight is primarily a melee fighter with a heavy emphasis on using his lance to pierce opponents from above. With every other male character in the game using a sword, a spear is certainly a nice departure from the norm.
We’re still waiting for news on home ports or localization attempts from Square Enix or developer Koei Tecmo. Nothing has been made official yet, so we’ll keep you updated.
