Revealed during one of Square Enix’s regular Dissidia livestreams, the dark wizard Golbez has been announced as the latest character to join the Dissidia Final Fantasy Arcade roster.
Golbez is a powerful spellcaster who excels at keeping opponents out with his various magic attacks. While many of Golbez’ spells are slow-moving energy orbs, his impressive speed allows him to pepper the screen with these projectiles and trap his opponent in a corner. In a change from his Dissidia 012 incarnation, Golbez’ Shadow Dragon fights alongside him at all times, even assisting the wizard during certain attacks.
Golbez will be added to the arcade version of Dissidia later this month, so expect the dark moon mage to be present in Dissidia Final Fantasy NT when it launches January 30th. Square Enix are also adding a new stage as part of this arcade update — the Stellar Fulcrum from Final Fantasy XI.
Expect more character announcements and news during Square Enix’s special 2nd anniversary livestream for Dissidia, happening on November 26th.
