Final Fantasy's Vaan isn't a street rat: I don't buy that

'I'm gonna be a sky pirate'

I've always had a lukewarm relationship with Final Fantasy XII, and its protagonist, Vaan.

The only thing it really did for me was ape Final Fantasy XI's combat and add in gambits. Post-game content was pretty cool compared to most of the series, but the story and characters (outside of Balthier of course) didn't grip me throughout. I felt this way at launch, and a few years ago I replayed it and had the same outcome. I'd definitely play an HD version though.

As for Dissidia itself, it's set to launch in arcades this week in Japan. One cast member has been introduced per game, and now that we're on Final Fantasy XII, the only characters left to debut are Lightning, Y'shtola (from XIV), and Ramza (from Tactics). From there, Square says they want to work on "over 50 characters" to add in over time.
