Special edition Dissidia PSP is too cool for school

The sequel to Final Fantasy brawler Dissidia is perhaps one of the few PSP titles still worth waiting for, so it's also one of the last chances for Sony to make all the fanboys go out and buy new PSPs.

Square Enix and Sony have worked together on this very intricately designed Dissidia Final Fantasy PSP. It'll be available exclusively as a retail bundle with the new Dissidia game packed in, and probably some other bundled accessory or voucher to pump up the price.

Officially titled Dissidia 012 [duodecim]: Final Fantasy (commence eye rolling), the new fanboy-drool-inducing title will be available in Japan on March 3. The bundle will launch right alongside the game's release there.

We don't know if this awesome PSP will be coming out west, but we do know that Dissidia 012 will... we just don't know when. Whenever it hits, though, it will be available as both a packaged, retail product as well as a downloadable title on the PlayStation Network. Interestingly, at least in the Japan, the downloadable version is cheaper than the retail version.

    I put over 100 hours into the first one. All it needs is a ton of new (well, technically old) characters from the series and I'll buy it.

    The Dissidia bundle in Japan for the first game was awesome. The one in the US was lame. My guess is the US will get the shaft again.

    One of the few reasons why I still play my PSP.

    I've been thinking about getting a PSP sometime soon, and this new one looks quite appealing. @paganpoet Exactly what I was thinking. It broke my heart that bloody Tifa was annouced, but no Celes.

    Still holding out hope that Celes is going to make her way into the game, although that hope dies a little more each time they announce a new character.
