Dissidia 012 Title Screen Voices

by April 17, 2011 0 comments

If you’ve been playing Dissidia 012 — or watching videos of it on YouTube — then you know by now that the voices of the game’s various characters can occasionally be heard saying “Square Enix” and “Dissidia Duodecim” at startup. You may have even noticed that the game of origin for some of the characters seems to correspond to certain days of the month on which you hear them (e.g. you heard Steve Burton/Cloud on the 7th of April).

You may be interested to know exactly what circumstances determine who you hear on a given day — and perhaps even a given time on a given day. Read on for more.

We now have the answer to this cute little mystery thanks to pg. 570 of the Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy Ultimania: RPG Side. A scan of the relevant part of the page — a title call chart — was made available to fans courtesy of toffeethesnob over on the ffchaoticcosmos blog.

Basically, it works like this: The first 10 days of each month, you’ll most likely hear one of the 10 heroes featured in the story from cycle 013. After that, the timing for most of the remaining characters roughly corresponds to double-digit days ending with the number of the game from which they originate. Things do get somewhat more complicated than that with some of the characters, though.

Below is toffeethesnob’s scan (click on it to enlarge it) of the chart from the Ultimania page in question, as well as my translation of the chart. Enjoy.

    I think it’s also affected by the encounter voices you have.

    I have Kuja’s encounter voices and it gave his sound off to me but my friend and sister (who do not have his voice) aren’t getting anything.

    I think it started off just like that when you finished the tutorial or storyline… At first, I was like “Uhh did I hear something just now? Hmph, must be my imagination… – then after which it says duodecim… That time I know now that its not just me…”

    Heres something else I noticed…If you to Museum and go to the Cutscene timeline.
    If you go to the end 013 cycle timeline end bossfights of Shade Impulse, in them the little window of the picture thing shows moogles. They will randomly pop, I’m not joking. I wnet to the FFVII cutscene “Relax” and Moogles were around Sephiroth in the picture.o_o
    Jjust a little Easter Egg I guess.

    I noticed so far that Cosmos and Garland say “Square Enix” but not the game title. I wonder why? :\

    the first time i heard it, i jumped out of my chair… literally! i thought i was going crazy or somethin’ like that but then i also freaked out when the voice changed after a few days… at first it was a female voice, not sure whose voice though, then it became jecht’s voice then became yuna’s then right now it’s vaan’s voice… but why is it sometimes it only says “square enix” but not the main title?
    anyway, i’m really looking forward to the next voice i’ll be hearing when i open the game!

    p.s, thanks for the information, it really helps!

    When I Played the game At the beginning. I didn’t stop playing until unlocking PP Catalog ( and bought new headset )
    after logging in xD To The Game again. Jacked headset. then so VERY QUITE NIGHT… Kefka’s “SQUARE ENIX” I just felt like my stomach ( just ate then ) and heart will pop out of my body ( MAX VOLUME )

    Kinda sad… never have the chance to hear the others.
