Square Enix has been doing a good job with regular content updates to their arcade arena fighter Dissidia Final Fantasy Arcade throughout most of last year. That trend will continue into the new year it seems, as Square Enix is set to announce yet another new character to the game.

The new character will be revealed during a live stream on NicoNico, set to take place on January 10 at 9:00 JST. In addition to the new character, Square Enix will also be talking about the content of the game’s latest version, as well as answering questions from players and fans.

Sephiroth was the last character to be revealed for Dissidia, so it’s fair to assume we’ll be getting a hero as the next combatant. Based on Final Fantasy XV’s recent release, it would not be surprising if Noctis was announced as the newest fighter. And with Final Fantasy’s 30th anniversary being at the end of this month, there may finally be a release date announced for the console version of Dissidia Final Fantasy Arcade.
