Final Fantasy VIII’s Rinoa Heartilly Joins the Cast of Dissidia Final Fantasy NT

Square Enix today confirmed that Final Fantasy VIII’s Rinoa Heartilly will join the Dissidia Final Fantasy NT cast.

Final Fantasy VIII fans will be pleased to hear that the beloved Rinoa is the third DLC character for Dissidia Final Fantasy NT. The sorceress joins the fray with her companion, Angelo, in tow. She is the third character from Final Fantasy VIII after Squall Leonhart and Ultimecia. Laguna Loire, who was in Dissidia 012, did not return for NT.

Rinoa’s appearance in NT is lifted straight from Final Fantasy VIII and is classified as a Marksman character. In combat, Rinoa can switch between Angelo and Angel Wing. When in her Angelo form, Rinoa will attack with her wrist-mounted weapons. Her Angel Wing form focuses more on magic.

Rinoa is the third of six planned DLC characters. Both Vayne Solidor (XII) and Locke Cole (VI) have already been released. Though nothing has been confirmed, a leaked list that has gotten everything right so far suggests that Yuna (X), Kam’lanaut (XI), and the Lightning Returns version of Snow (XIII) are the remaining three characters.

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is available now on PS4. Rinoa officially joins the cast in August, and will also be added to Dissidia Final Fantasy Opera Omnia.
