If you’re a fan of Final Fantasy VIII, then we got some awesome news for you as Rinoa Heartilly joins the battle in Dissidia Final Fantasy NT. Square Enix and Koei Tecmo made the announcement today as she becomes the third character added tot he game in the season pass, and downloadable by herself if you so choose. Here’s her full description and trailer for the game.
Rinoa brings a brand-new fighting style to the game, using her versatile Blaster Edge weapon to attack enemies from afar and protect her allies. She can also partner up with her loyal canine companion Angelo to disrupt her enemies’ attacks and keep her rivals at a distance. Rinoa’s unique EX Skill “Angel Wing” transforms her into a powerful sorceress, completely changing her move set and allowing her to wield powerful magic at the cost of reducing her HP over time.
With her blaster edge at the ready and Angelo at her side, Rinoa is not only versatile—she is a force to be reckoned with. By calling upon the sorceress power with Angel Wing, she can cast magic spells in battle, but at a price. Back home, she is part of a resistance group known as the Forest Owls. She enlists SeeD members to assist in kidnapping the president, but ends up getting involved in their battle against a powerful sorceress.
