Square Enix has just announced Dissidia duodecim prologus Final Fantasy – a spin-off of forthcoming franchise spin-off Dissidia 012[duodecim] Final Fantasy.
According to the European PlayStation Blog, it's a brief pre-amble to Square's brawler that introduces Final Fantasy XIII protagonist Lightning to the series for the first time. You'll get to play through a unique scenario that recounts the events leading up to Dissidia 012[duodecim] proper.
No European release date has been confirmed yet, but it will be available in the US on 15th March for $2.99.
Those purchasing the add-on will also unlock Final Fantasy VII's Aerith for use as an assist character in the full game and any items you pick up in the download will carry over too.
