Lightning and Kain are set to appear in it, nothing about other new characters at the moment or whether all of the old ones will return, looks like Cecil and Garland still are though.
Will likely hear quite a bit about it at TGS later this month, as this seems like the title Nomura was teasing will be appearing there.

    While I doubt the plot will do anything but send me into a rage, I would like to play some more, especially if they make the roster a bit more interesting. Opening the roster up to characters that aren't just the main protagonist and antagonist can get us some good characters outside of sword and spells (TIFA PLEASE).

    I'd like Gilgamesh, Leon, Galuf, Locke, Cait Sith, Irvine, Quina, Auron, Shadow Lord or Eald'narche, Zeid, and Balthier.

    Yuna and Seymour would be interesting on the X side as well.

    Heh. Not surprised. Opening up the roster would be smart, I thought it was pretty lame they only had one character from XI and XII.
    So long & thanks for all the fish!

    Apparently that's because Nomura started thinking of Dissidia around 2001... So only FFI-X existed. Now... why they decided to still ignore the next seven years makes no sense, but the developers have tried to handwave it.

    Knew it was only a matter of time. Looking forward to a more diverse set of characters.

    Well... not a whole lot happened in those 7 years :p

    The roster would get big very fast if they included spin-off characters and ones from other projects like Kingdom Hearts.

    Hopefully they will just focus on FFI-XIV and get 2-3 characters for each.

    Sweet! I don't really care if the story was lame and mostly incomprehensible, there was hardly any of it there and the gameplay was so addictively fantastic that it doesn't matter. I think I put about 80 hours into the first one, and that was before it was even released :D

    Can't wait to hear more.
    Maybe I'll log out and check my e-mail or something...

    I really groaned when all we got from FFXI was Shantotto...although an important NPC in some of the missions I thought that there were better choices like Lion, Zeid, Aldo, and Prishe. This is also not mentioning that the Shadowlord, the Zilart (Kam'lanaut and Eald'narche) and Gessho would make good additions to the dark side.

    edit: Also if you're talking stages I'd love the Throne Room from FFXI...that would be a fun arena!

    I'll agree that FFXI has a lot of good stuff that could be added in. The Shadow Lord or Raogrimm, Zeid, Lion, etc. Would love to see more from all the games, honestly.

    Yeah. While I hope other series favorites like Kain make it, I hope most of the focus goes to representing FFXI-XIV.

    As would I but I thought I'd focus on new things/other stuff. I believe people said spinoffs? I'd probably go with Ramza(FFT), and Benjamin/Hero(FFMQ) for starters.(can't think of anyone else cool off the top of my head)
