FFV's Gilgamesh throws his hat in the Dissidia sequel ring

As the Dissidia sequel (don't make us type out the full name) releases in Japan in a couple weeks, there isn't much more time for new surprise character announcements. Nevertheless, details have just surfaced on the appearance of the ominous enemy Gilgamesh from Final Fantasy V.

The news was broken via a promotional poster that Square Enix sent out to Japanese retailers. However, some eagle-eyed players had already spotted the creature in a recent trailer, so it's not a complete surprise.

According to some new hot dish in Shonen Jump magazine, timed to correspond with the posters, Gilgamesh's weapon will constantly change each time it is used. No further information was disclosed.

The game's official title is Dissidia 012[duodecim] Final Fantasy, but, as mentioned, we prefer to just call it 'the Dissidia sequel,' or maybe 'Dissidia 012.' In addition to all the classic FF characters like Cloud, Sephiroth, and Squall, the sequel adds in new characters including Vaan and Lightning, as well as more legacy heroes, including Tifa and Kain.

With the Japanese version releasing on March 3rd, there can't be too many more reveals, but that doesn't mean there aren't more surprises still hidden in the game. We'll just have to wait and see.

    Actually, we've known about Gilgy being in the game ever since that demo was hacked about a month ago. :P Still fucking awesome though. Dissidia can never have too many hams.

    Corasir89, ah but he was in FF9 as well as a character. You probably just didn't notice him.I reckon he's the only person to be in more than one FF game. He exists in between the different realms of each universe.

    Final Fantasy fan boys just came before they had a chance to get an erection after reading that headline. Square should take a page out of Capcom's book and make this series a developer wide thing. Square has so many characters they could use for a fun fighting game across all their IPs. Bart with his chain whips or Lucca with her gadgets and shit would be interesting.

    Poor, poor Gilgamesh XD Ne'er got it right. Glad to see him in ^^

    @gilgamesh310: True, but FFV was not only his debut, but the only FF where he was an actual character and not a summon or an optional boss.

    That's pretty cool, but I don't exactly have it high on my to-buy list. Dissidia was awesome, but I can't say it takes priority over the likes of the 3DS and stuff.
