The Fantasy Dies Again

If you haven’t seen this, shame on you.

The brainchild of Monty Oum, the Dead Fantasy series pits the iconic heroines of Final Fantasy (Yuna, Rikku, Tifa, Rinoa, and one other special guest) against the sexy divas of the Dead or Alive franchise (Kasumi, Ayane, Hitomi, and a special guest of their own). To date, Dead Fantasy I and II are the only parts of this ongoing fan project. However, the end of part II leaves the door wide open (read: promises) a sequel. Actually, a series of sequels.

Well, it’s been awhile since Mr. Oum graced us all with DFII. Now, the wait may finally be over. Guests at several anime/comic/geek/etc. conventions this season have been treated to a glimpse of unfinished footage from the upcoming Dead Fanatsy III and IV (and possibly V). These new shorts pack more intricate choreography, more devastating blows, more use of character powers/abilities, more fan service, more story, and even more characters. There also seems to be hints that combatants may not just be bested in battle, but killed altogether.

If no one else is excited about this, I certainly am. Especially DFIV – one word for you… Aeons…

The Fantasy Dies agin, next month. Maybe. The summer… hopfully…
