Square Enix Co, Ltd.'s Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia is now available for download on Android, as of January 31. Although this may not be the Final Fantasy title many players are probably waiting for, Opera Omnia appears to a be a worthy title in its own right. Dropped into a crumbling world, created by Spiritus and Materia, players must team up with heroes and baddies from across the expansive franchise to fight through a new original story campaign. As with other entries into the Final Fantasy series, combat takes the form of series-familiar turn-based battles and players will need to evolve their own strategies as they play with a variety of weapons and abilities varying from character to character.
However, Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia also has a few features that are mostly unique to this title. For starters, because there are dozens of characters to choose from previous Final Fantasy titles players are going to need to be thoughtful about setting up their various teams. As mentioned above, each character will have their own weaknesses and strengths, as well as their own weapons and abilities. So picking the appropriate characters to take on any given enemy is going to be crucial. Beyond that, there are separate multiplayer quests to be undertaken by two or more players working as a team. Those will also typically involve bigger rewards for participants since players will need to work together in order to bring down even larger or more dangerous enemies than they might face in more standards quests.
Meanwhile, this particular Final Fantasy title is also free to play with in-app purchases but also comes with some interesting bonuses for players who download it early. In fact, because the developers saw such a big response when Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia first went up for pre-registration, Square Enix is offering those pre-registration perks to everybody who logs in before February 28. Those players will receive 5,000 in-game currency – called gems – a 300-gem login bonus for the first 20 days logging in, exclusive gear for the 25 available launch characters, one half-priced summon before February 28, and discounts on gem bundles.
