Battle Chaos Bahamut In Blood of Bahamut

By Laura . July 27, 2009 . 7:10am

image So it looks like Square Enix, is finally releasing information about Blood of Bahamut, their new DS game.  Thus far, we have seen fantastic pictures of giant monsters who share names with Final Fantasy summons we know and love.

 

Well, it looks like summons are back, but not with Shiva and co. as your allies. Ibuki, the protagonist, is the sole summoner left in a world filled with gigantic monsters.  The power of a summoner is obtained from the power of the souls of dragons residing within his body.  This allows the summoner to transform and is the cause of much envy and hatred towards them.

 

It seems that Ibuki’s original inherited power is the White Dragon.  However, there is also a Black Dragon, who may very well be another summoner, suggesting that Ibuki isn’t quite as alone as he thinks he is.

 

Ibuki’s struggles against Ifrit and Gilgamesh lead up to Chaos Bahamut, a new version of the dragon that appears before those who have defeated all the other giant monsters. He’s even more powerful with godlike powers.  Good luck beating him.

 

All of this beautiful art really makes me want to play the game.  The good news is that there’s not long to wait.  Blood of Bahamut is coming out in August 6th in Japan, so look forward to a playtest sometime after that!

    Love the look of the monsters! Hope this comes overseas soon. A bit concerned because Stigma Harmonics and the Chocobo sequel haven’t.

    you know, I really want to love Think & Feel (as I really did kind of love Monster Summoner), but the more I think about Blood of Bahamut, the more I just wish it was a remake of Bahamut Lagoon. Which I didn’t even really like all that much!

    I want it so much.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if SE never brings this over.

    The music is epic and the char design likable. Hopefully single player mode would be just as fun.

    Square Enix has so many Bahamuts they should star in a Bahamut battle royale mini-game.

      They’re saving it for Dissidia 2: Battle of the Summons.

      Edit: Scratch that. Fantasy Hunter, on PSP. Everyone goes out hunting different Bahamuts / other summons together. 4-player adhoc MH clone.

        May I propose “King of Espers 2009″, although I’m not looking forward to KOE XII, in which they’ll charge us extra for Shiva DLC…
