Square Enix will host a “Dissidia Final Fantasy Finals Tournament and Special Session” at the Maihama Amphitheater in Chiba on August 27 where it is planning various announcements. (Update: It will be live streamed on YouTube.)
The event will consist of two parts. The first part, which runs from 13:15 to 16:30 JST, is the Dissidia Final Fantasy Finals Tournament, which will see the top 16 teams in Japan battle it out for victory.
The second part, which runs from 17:00 to 19:30 JST, is the “Special Session,” which promises “all sorts of new information” and features Square Enix staff Ichirou Hazama, Takeo Kujiraoka, and even Tetsuya Nomura. Expected reveals include:

- The gods Chaos and Cosmos will finally make an appearance in the new content, “Battle of the Gods.”
Outside of Dissidia Final Fantasy, there’s also:
