    With this game's existing summoning mechanics, it would make a lot more sense for Yuna to be based on her Final Fantasy X-2 incarnation, perhaps using her EX Skill to switch dresspheres between Gunner and one or two others (Songstress and Mascot, maybe?).

    That the entire story is gated behind the game's competitive multiplayer was a massive step down from Duodecim's wealth of single-player content. I can watch every bit of story that Dissidia NT has to offer on YouTube because most or all of it is in cutscenes. That's a real pisser compared to the branching, muti-tiered Duodecim narrative.

    I can see this; or maybe a version that greatly augments existing summon powers or even allows her to channel her own summon on a really long cool down.

    I've been playing it a little and I appreciate the changes made to make it a more balanced fighter; still don't care for the new block mechanic though. I've been playing Kain and Zidane mostly. Kain's Avenger HP attack is awesome versus predictable players; it's almost like a guaranteed hit.

    I need to find a team to queue with. This solo shit is a bummer and I can't figure out WHY people are picking Alexander so frequently as a summon.

    Dissidia is very easy to play (especially this one) and I think it's a good choice for someone that doesn't have a ton of time to devote to yet another game.

    Can't speak for DBZ but it is almost definitely a more complex, more time consuming game.

    Duodecim has more summons than NT, and devs still picked summoner Yuna.

    FFX version of Yuna is still the more iconic version, matches the logo and origin priorities Dissidia tends to do (
    Dissidia completely ignores the FFIII remake, so Onion Knight got picked instead of Luneth, even Lightning has her XIII version as default instead of LR.) ,

    and it would make more sense Summoner Yuna having X-2 costume as alternate,
    than X-2 Gunner Yuna having Summoner outfit as an alternate.

    regardless of summon mechanics, FFX version of Yuna is just as likely.

    not sure if the devs would really be ambitious enough to completely reinvent Yuna playstyle when she already has a blueprint from Duodecim. a hybrid garment grid changeable X-2 Yuna would be very surprising. though if she gets 3 dressspheres, it should be
    Gunner, Songstress and Floral Fallal or Psychicer/Psychic

    Duodecim story was mediocre time waster anyways, these games should not invest in storytelling,
    no matter what, it would still boil down to the terribly written fanfic excuse to bring the characters together
    and try to make sense out of the obvious crossover fanservice when it doesnt need excuses.

    Playerunknown's Battlegrounds is being played by millions more players and don't need story to have meaning and significance.

    all the story and cinematic budget could be used to expand the actual gameplay content further, complete characters faster,
    new locations faster, etc.

    c'mon Square Enix, if you want more to purchase and play Dissidia NT, make Rinoa playable already!! Her return is long overdue.
    one of the 2018 season pass playable character DLC additions should be Rinoa Heartilly
