Story Mode

In the Story Mode of Dissidia, the player can select any of the 10 heroes on the side of Cosmos. Each character has their own adventure complete with voiced cutscenes and stages. The stages are presented like a board game, and the player spends Destiny Points to move character piece around the board to encounter enemies and treasures. When the stage conditions have been met, the path to the boss piece will be open leading to the conclusion of the stage. Players will be assessed on how well they performed at the end of each stage and receive bonus points and items.

Summons in Dissidia act as support skills that influence the Brave Points during a battle. Each Summon has a unique skill, but only a single Summon can be equipped for a battle at any one time. The skills that the Summons provide can vary from copying the Brave Points of the opponent as your own, to draining away your opponent’s Brave Points. There are also skills that have certain on-going effects on the Brave Points of either the player or the opponent for a limited amount of time. The game will feature over 50 summons that can be acquired throughout the Story Mode.

Wireless Mode

Over ad-hoc or using Ad-hoc Party on the PS3, players can challenge each other using characters they have trained and customized. Players can exchange Friend Cards containing their statistics and Ghost data, and there are several different rule sets to choose from when engaging in a battle. There are hundreds of unlockable avatars to choose from to use in your Friend Card as well. There are also Artifact Items that evolve as they change hands between players. An Artifact is a basic item that can be renamed. As its name changes, it may gain special properties, and as the item changes hands from player to player and it will evolve with each renaming into a stronger and more unique weapon.
