Finishing Touch! By far my most anticipated Limit Break for Cloud. Seeing the original after both Dissidia PSP and Arcade’s and Smash Bros’ interpretations felt like getting closure to the move’s origins.

It’s been an ascending multihit move with intensive spinning,

a destructive single hit that covers both sides in quick succession,

and now a multi-hit tornado projectile that homes in on opponents.

That one I’d say is closest to the original. It’s a surprisingly viable projectile in Dissidia Arcade’s 3v3 combat as long as he isn’t at the center of the action. Fully charged tornado travels very far easily dealing over 400 damage and more with Mighty Strike and Limit Break buffs. It feels very satisfying to watch, as does most of Cloud’s moves in that game in my opinion~

Every incarnation of the move appears to have a tornado motif that is closely tied to spinning around in place. Cloud’s name is supposed to refer to his life of turmoil and conflicted nature, right? A fierce tornado fits right in.

Easily one of my favorite moves in Cloud’s repertoire.

A rich, creamy dessert without all the work

Treat yourself to our raspberry mascarpone dessert! The pleated chocolate shell is filled with rich and creamy mascarpone filling and towered three layers high with fresh raspberries. It’s then topped with a light glaze to keep it all together, along with drizzles of chocolate. 

This is one of our best-selling desserts and is available in all of our stores!

The perfect dessert for any Italian meal

Want an authentic Italian dessert? Try our cannoli, available in our bakery.

Large, crispy cannoli shells are filled by hand with a rich, creamy mascarpone filling. Each end is dipped in chocolate shavings or pistachios and then the whole thing is drizzled with chocolate.

It’s a wonderful treat to complete your favorite Italian meal. Delizioso!
