Keep your eyes on Dissidia Final Fantasy NT for a new character. Introduced as the third addition to the Season Pass, Rinoa Heartilly from Final Fantasy VIII is now playable in the fighter.

When you use Rinoa in the game, she can utilize her EX Skill "Angel Wing" to go into full-on Sorceress mode, blasting her targets with powerful magic. There's a tradeoff, though....if she could do this all the time she'd break the game's difficulty, so as long as you use Rinoa in Angel Wing form, her HP will constantly drain. It's not like Rinoa is completely defenseless without that form -- she has an attack dog, remember?

More in Square's press release.

LOS ANGELES (Aug. 16, 2018) – SQUARE ENIX® announced today that Rinoa Heartilly, the powerful resistance fighter from FINAL FANTASY® VIII, is now available as the third character in the Season Pass for DISSIDIA® FINAL FANTASY NT.

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.

Rinoa is available now as a standalone purchase, or as part of the Season Pass, which further includes Vayne from FINAL FANTASY XII, Locke from FINAL FANTASY VI and three additional unrevealed characters, each with two additional skins and weapons. More information about the Season Pass is available at: Season Pass.

DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY NT and the DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY NT Season Pass are available now for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system.

The title is rated T (Teen). Please visit the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) website at for more information about ratings.

Her voice is not how I expected her to sound like in my head. But yeah she is more of the energetic cutesy type of girl who is the opposite of the quiet and mysterious Squall. In my head canon though she have a pure maiden voice like Fluttershy from My little Ponies.
