Square Enix is gearing up to release yet another character for #Dissidia Final Fantasy Arcade. According to Twinfinite, the company recently revealed a teaser featuring several shadows of future characters stacked together. It’s a bit hard to make out just which specific characters are included in the teaser, but we can make a few good guesses based on the heroes/villains previously included in the past two installments. With that being said, here are some characters that might be the next playable fighter in Dissidia Final Fantasy Arcade.

Golbez (Final Fantasy IV)

This antagonist appeared in the first two Dissidia games as a warrior of chaos.

Based on the large structure and horns on the image, it might be safe to say that he could be one of the future heroes in Dissidia Final Fantasy Arcade. In the PSP versions, Golbez is a powerful sorcerer who makes use of his magic to create a string of combos. He’s an expert in both close and ranged combat and is quite agile despite his large figure. Since he already has a set playstyle, it wouldn’t be all too surprising if Square Enix decided to put him back in the game.

Ultimecia (Final Fantasy VIII)

Another villain in the series, Ultimecia is no stranger to the fighting game spin-offs. Like Golbez, she also appeared in both games as a warrior or Chaos who opposes Squall. She is a narcissistic witch who can control the very fabric of space and time itself with her magic. Her playstyle, on the other hand, revolves around timing her powerful spells.

She can choose to charge her attacks and set traps around the battlefield while bombarding the enemy with another set of skills. Square Enix could easily incorporate her old play style in “Dissidia Final Fantasy Arcade” as the game still needs another representative from “#Final Fantasy Viii.”

Tifa Lockhart (Final Fantasy VII)

This warrior of Cosmos appeared in “Duodecim” as the third representative for the seventh game in the mainline series. She specializes in close-quarter combat along with being able to feint before striking. Tifa can teleport behind the enemy before striking which leaves her enemy open to a barrage of kicks and punches. This “#Final Fantasy Vii” heroine is a popular character from the franchise so it’d be great if she could make her return to the arcade version. While there isn’t actually anything in the teaser that points to her, her character model might be have been sneaked into the silhouettes.
