Your eyes do not deceive you, Jecht is on the Cosmos Side. 
Terra, Cloud, and Tidus are on the Chaos side.

I really like it, although Lightning looks a bit strange for some reason

If you look at the FF13 chick and the girl to her left you can see they are differently lighted (also the two front characters on the bottom), which is kind of messed up.

I don't get it, why is Jecht up top, and Tidus, Terra, and Cloud on the bottom?

Why is Vaan smelling his finger? That's messed up.

As I clicked the link I guessed it would be two clusterfuck sets of characters randomly arranged with very little thought into it and I was right. Excellent :)

@CL60:
I remember seeing in the trailer something about Tidus being under mind control and terra not being able to control her powers. As for cloud fuck knows, some crazy ridiculous justification no doubt.

@EuanDewar: Cloud has probably gone back into his emo  'I am just a failed clone so what is the point' mode again

Yuna looks weird. Seems like a different face than what I remember.
And really? They're gonna call it Duodecim in the US? Thought the American distributers would have put a stop to thatmadness. It's Dissidia 2! Not Dissidia12!

Looks like a Final Fantasy cover alright. Also, doesn't Lightning look a bit different?

I liked it better when it didn't have Lightning. I find her to be probably one of my most hated characters, though I can't really put my finger on why.

I want Balthier and Fran not Vaan...

#14 Edited by PK_Koopa (583 posts) -

Jecht is on the good side because of what happened in the first one, Tidus is indeed being mind controlled or something (He probably doesn't wanna be on his father's side, but thats a pretty lame reason), Terra has lost control of her powers and Cloud... well.. 


 Yup.

Same here. Why would Terra go to the dark side, damn it? I can understand Tidus (daddy issues) and Cloud (Sephiroth has mind control or whatever), but why Terra? I doubt that she'd put the crown on again.

The first one? Isn't this a prequel?

Terrible title.  
 
Also, looks nice when blown up on my super-neat 720p laptop monitor. It's gonna look crowded as fuck on a PSP case, though.

I think I read something about her losing control of her esper powers and being under Kefka's control (this is a prequel to the original Dissidia, in which Kefka mentions at some point Terra fought for Chaos, so this definitely ties in with that) - similar to the slave crown she had on at the start of FFVI. She eventually breaks free of the control and joins Cosmos's side, as do Cloud and Tidus, but I'm not sure how/why they're Chaos in the first place. Maybe you're right about Tidus, and he just wants to be opposite to whatever his Dad's on (and I assume it'll be Yuna who convinces him to join Cosmos)?

@VelvetLore04: ...Seriously?
 Ugh.
 
Guess I must've been misinformed or something. Damn confusing Squeenix plot.
#24 Edited by JackSukeru (5949 posts) -

I can't tell if Tidus costume is still asymmetrical. It'd be cool if it wasn't. 
 
Edit: wait it is.

#25 Posted by dungbootle (2458 posts) -

It looks like Final Fantasy. The first Dissidia is some of the most fun I've had with FF, so my PSP might get played again soon.

She seems to be rendered better in this boxart than the FF13 one.
#27 Posted by danimal_furry (1453 posts) -

Nice, Rec. Where did you find that?

#28 Posted by AngelN7 (2972 posts) -

Prishe not being on the cover confirms that theres still some characters unannounced?, Im still wating for Auron how can you not have Auron in this game?, also theres only one new Chaos Character wich is Gilgamesh so they just put some of the Cosmos charcters on the chaos side? I know this is a precuel and some Characters do stay that they were on the oposite side at first but still theres no more villans to pick?
