You really can't classify Dissidia: Final Fantasy as a role-playing game, especially after you watch this latest gameplay video that popped up at the Tokyo Game Show this week. Just about all the footage we've seen of this game features an epic one-on-one encounter, which is most certainly played out in real-time. But of course, we're expecting a whole lot more depth than you'd typically find in a fighting game, so it's tough to categorize Dissidia. Even so, we can say - beyond any shadow of a doubt - that it'll be a huge PSP title that ought to be a fantastic addition to the handheld's library. Square-Enix might be alienating the PS3 owners, but they continue to give portable owners plenty of very promising games. ...we suppose we can live with that.
