I made an error in the previous post stating that Gilgamesh is going to be a summon in Type-0. He is, in fact, going to be a boss character. He is a l’Cie who has received the power of the Genbu crystal but has forgotten its mission. Also, he’s three times the size of the game’s main characters.
Genbu is the name of the game’s four Peristyliums, which are the organizations that handle each of the crystals in the game. Suzaku is the name of Rebrum’s Peristylium and it’s the magic school where most of the story takes place. The Genbu people reside in the mountains and augment their bodies with the power of their crystal; making themselves more resistant to magic and weapons.
Here are some introductions to some of the characters you’ll find in the game:
Sice: Wields a scythe and has the ability to use a Black Hole move.
King: Wields dual guns and uses the Power Bullet ability to deal damage to multiple targets.
Eight: Uses hand-to-hand combat. He’s a male with short, red hair and abjures the use of weapons. He has a special ability that involves using the d-pad to unleash a variety of actions.
The game features an Active World Map. Enemy forces will constantly be waging war on the map and you will be called upon to defend key locations. Cities can be taken by enemy units. You can take back the city by destroying the commanders that have garrisoned there. Once you have recaptured the city, you can use it to shop for items. It’s rumored that specific items reside in specific cities. So…Uh… Guess you gotta catch ‘em all, right?
This game is set to be released at the end of summer for Japan. No word for an American release date yet.
