One of the biggest PSP games coming in 2009 is getting a bundle. The Limited Edition Dissidia: Final Fantasy PSP Entertainment Pack is exclusive to GameStop retailers and will be released on August 24th for the price tag of $19.99.
Dissidia: Final Fantasy is a fighting game similar to the premise of the Super Smash Bros. series. The upcoming PSP title features some of the most popular characters in the Final Fantasy series, including Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII, Squall Leonhart from Final Fantasy VIII and Tidus from Final Fantasy X.
All twelve of the mainline games released so far in the series are represented in Dissidia: Final Fantasy. This includes the lesser known games in the series like Final Fantasy II, III and V in addition to the online only Final Fantasy XI. Dissidia: Final Fantasy is truly a game made for the hardcore fans of the series.
The PSP title came out in Japan on December 18, 2008. It was an immediate smash hit with close to a million units sold so far, making Dissidia: Final Fantasy one of the best-selling PSP games worldwide. The number will only go up when the game is released in North America this summer and later in Europe.
Along with Dissidia: Final Fantasy, the Limited Edition Dissidia: Final Fantasy PSP Entertainment Pack includes a UMD movie of Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. This 2005 film follows the events directly after the conclusion of Final Fantasy VII, the most popular game in the series by a wide margin.
Along with answering some decade-old questions left by the cliffhanger ending of the game, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children features spectacular computer generated visuals. The movie really shines during the super fast and very stylish fight scenes. So like Dissidia: Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children also caters to the hardcore fans of the series.
The Limited Edition Dissidia: Final Fantasy PSP Entertainment Pack also features a PSP-3000 system with a “Mystic Silver” color. Finally, a 2GB Memory Stick PRO Duo is also included for storage.
The entire pack will retail for $199.99. This is quite a bargain considering that a PSP ($169.99), UMD movie of Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children ($14.99), 2GB Memory Stick PRO Duo (about $19.99) and Dissidia: Final Fantasy ($39.99) will costs a lot more when bought separately.
The Limited Edition Dissidia: Final Fantasy PSP Entertainment Pack is a great value for Final Fantasy fans that are looking to buy the PSP. They can find the bundle at GameStop retailers beginning on August 24th.
