Blood Of Bahamut Summons Square Enix’s Favorite Ice Queen

By Spencer . March 24, 2009 . 8:26pm


Square Enix’s take on Shiva joins growing list of Final Fantasy Espers that appear as Gigants in Blood of Bahamut. She fires ice beams from her hands and a screenshot hints at least part of her armor is destructible.


So far, every Gigant has been introduced with a playable character. Shiva is no exception. Ryuma, the man with locks of carmine colored hair, is part of the Shiva tribe. He attacks with a machine gun which means he’s effective at a distance, but vulnerable to an in your face monster ambush. Close to the end of every month Square Enix pours out another batch of Blood of Bahamut screenshots. Surprisingly, they still haven’t set a release date.

  • I know she’s the Ice Queen but… HOT. Is she topless in that one shot? Definitely getting an M-rating here then, unless they cover her up.

    • Rciwws

      Of course it will be edited for any stateside release. We can have vulgar violence and language but the slightest hint of sex and it gets cut instantly.

  • Mr. Persona

    Very nice. I can’t wait!

  • fallen

    oh my dual-screen topless shiva. i didn’t realize how empty my life had been until now~

  • Kai_Rule

    Square-enix… please keep this M rated.
    Btw, does anyone know why the graphics are so good? Looks a bit like PSP graphics.

  • …I can’t believe anyone thinks there’s going to be detailed nudity (or even any nudity that isn’t hidden by an arm or a fan) in this. Seriously?

    I think Shiva’s gorgeous, but I’m rolling my eyes at how Squeenix felt the need to put in fanservice (in the form of “destructible armor”) for the only female Gigant in the game (so far). Good job pandering, guys!

  • Euthanasian

    It won’t be pandering if we can bust open some man-armor too, right?…



  • Pichi

    I really don’t think that’s even close to M-rated. There are worse out there.

    I’m really getting that SotC vibe, so I hope SE brings it over.

  • Wishy

    Funny thing is, Shiva should technically be a male. But I’d prefer a half naked Ice Queen over an Ice King. :P

    Can’t wait for this game!!

  • Oh I had dropped this game off my radar, but now I’m interested. Her styling looks gorgeous in this game, hmmm.
