NCS Game Synopsis
When two gods have enmity between each other, they don't go to fisticuffs by themselves. No, they're gods and are loathe to soil their robes with brute behavior. When gods go to war, they summon underlings and minions to do their bidding. In the case of the gods named Cosmos and Chaos, the heroes and villains of the Final Fantasy games are brought in to do some fierce 3D fighting on their behalf.

   Cosmos' champions are the heroes from Final Fantasy games such as the Warrior of Light from Final Fantasy I, Cecil Harvey from Final Fantasy IV, Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII, and Tidus from Final Fantasy X. On the side of Chaos are the villains of the Final Fantasy games including the Emperor from Final Fantasy II, Exdeath from Final Fantasy V, and Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII.  It's a mostly male affair with only a couple of heroines such as Tina Branford (FFVI) in the playable cast though we think Payne would have kicked ass. There is a secret heroine from FFXI who can be unlocked by meeting certain conditions while playing.

   At the outset of the game, only ten fighters from the heroes side are playable. In our test game this morning, we pitted Onion Knight from Final Fantasy III against Squall Leonhart of FFVIII fame and selected the eight stage which features a bunch of craggy platforms against a hazy aquamarine backdrop. The heroes can jump from platform to platform to attack but since they're being supported by gods, they're able to jump twice in midair and attack while airborne. Light trails and clanging special effects provide visual fireworks to spice up every battle.

NCS Game Notes
The STORY MODE starts off with a stunning introductory cinema where the two factions meet and then square off in one-on-one battles filled with melee attacks as well as magical fireworks. The game starts off with the Warrior of Light as the hero where he navigates through a grid-based playboard and battles assorted enemies in full 3D fighting action. Movement on the board is governed by "Destiny Points" that are granted at the outset of each stage by pressing the "O" button.

» The cast of characters is as follows:

Final Fantasy: Warrior of Light, Garland
Final Fantasy II: Frioniel, The Emperor
Final Fantasy III: Onion Knight, Cloud of Darkness
Final Fantasy IV: Cecil Harvey, Golbez
Final Fantasy V: Butz Klauser, Exdeath
Final Fantasy VI: Tina Branford, Kefka Palazzo
Final Fantasy VII: Cloud Strife, Sephiroth
Final Fantasy VIII: Squall Leonhart, Ultimecia
Final Fantasy IX: Zidane Tribal, Kuja
Final Fantasy X: Tidus, Jecht
Final Fantasy XI: Shantotto
Final Fantasy XII: Gabranth

» The analog nub controls the fighter's movement while the D-pad swivels the camera around.

» One of Tina Bradford's special attacks is a trio of miniature tornadoes that'll sweep an opponent off his/her feet. The tornadoes will initially circle the opponent before they coalesce together for a final spin-attack.
