Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is receiving another DLC character from Final Fantasy XIV, as Zenos yae Galvus will be coming to the game in the future.
Zenos is the main villain of the Stormblood expansion of Final Fantasy XIV. The last battle of the story involves taking on a version of Zenos who is wielding the power of Shinryu. The announcement of Zenos joining Dissidia NT was made during the Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival, where a trailer was shown of Zenos decimating Y’shtola in battle. In Dissidia NT, Zenos is a specialist character with the ability to switch weapons using his revolving sheath.
The most surprising aspect of Zenos’ presence in Dissidia NT is that he was not mentioned in an infamous data mine of the game that took place in 2018. It was revealed that all of the DLC characters for Dissidia NT had been planned and that they had assets in the game already, which resulted in the entire content of the original Season Pass being spoiled. It was also revealed that all of the characters from the earlier games that were absent would be returning (most likely as DLC) and that Zack Fair from Final Fantasy VII and Vivi Ornitier from Final Fantasy IX would be coming to the game.
However, there was no mention of Zenos in the original data mine, which suggests that he was either added at a later date or that Square Enix learned of the leak and decided to change which characters would be added to the game.
The fact that more DLC is coming outside of the original Season Pass means that we might still be seeing Vivi, Zack, and the missing characters from the previous Dissidia game. However, the fact that Zenos has been announced means that there may still be more surprises to come in regards to future DLC for Dissidia NT.
Zenos yae Galvus will be available in the arcade version of Dissidia NT on March 26, 2019, and he will be added to the PlayStation 4 and Steam versions of the game as paid DLC on April 11, 2019.
