Lord of Arcana Has Rather Cute Succubi

By Ishaan . October 15, 2010 . 9:39am

Lord of Arcana has some pretty interesting — and different, as compared to Monster Hunter and God Eater — monsters for players to take on. They’re less monsters and more mythological or fantastical beings. Minotaurs, goblins, succubi. You get the idea.


Here’s a quick look at them. Keep in mind these don’t include the grander “bosses” in the game:

Lord of Arcana released for the PSP yesterday in Japan. Square have a 2011 released planned for the game in North America and Europe, but haven’t mentioned a date yet.

    Since when did medusi have wings?

  • Isn’t it supposed to be Genbu, Lich, and Serket? Also… the Qwar wouldn’t happen to actually be a Coeurl, would it? And er… Spika wouldn’t happen to be referring to the star Spica… Then again that last part is probably too far off…

    • kupomogli

      Haven’t you played FFTactics? Everyone knows it’s supposed to be Rich. :P Jk.

    • Ah, I used the “m” in Genbu mostly because that’s how I imagine one would pronounce it. Serket can be used with an “l” or an “r”. Had no clue what Coeurls were though…thanks for pointing these out!

  • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

    That phantom is pretty freaky. I like the silly looking mandrake. Rich looks like a pimp grim reaper, and boy does that succubus have a booty.

  • Code

    rar, that’s some nice artwork, not usually a style I’m particularly fond of either, but I just don’t feel like the game had enough substance from what I played, Monster Hunter’s spoiled me and Square’s going to have to try a lot harder.

  • SolidusSnake

    It’s gonna feel weird hacking that cute succubus into bloody chunks.

    • i wont… hehehehe

    • ikiryou

      If she drops a rare item, I’ll hack her up all day long.

  • Hraesvelgr

    So, this is the succubus that targets lolicons.

    • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

      What? That succubus is all curves, all woman. Look at those hips! Those thighs! Those legs! Just because she has a cute face and her boobs aren’t the size of her head…

      • Hraesvelgr

        The face kills it. Too “loli” for me.

  • Gah! I hate those freaking skeletons in the demo. I admit that I was being aggressive and that these guys are good at countering.

  • number313

    actually the original depiction of gorgons have wings of gold, brazen claws and tusks of boars. it’s just that the movie clash of the titans(1981 version) solidified the image of medusa/gorgon we know today. I kinda applaud them for this depiction

    this was meant as a reply to godmars

  • Ereek

    The art is lovely. That alone might convince me to buy the game.The Phantom looks awesome and Green Slime is cute. Mandrake tries to be cute but actually ends up as the creepiest, to me.

  • ikiryou

    Just bring it stateside already, Squenix. Geez, Japanese devs/publishers are such teases XD

  • Chow

    Gosh, the mandrake is something right out of Cho Aniki (and I’m not kidding).

  • It’s been bothering me for awhile, but that Green Slime looks like the Green Dragon from Chrono Cross.

  • neocatzon

    succubi.. please do me when I sleep…

    • Bruce

      good luck buddy …. just hope you won’t end up with a fat succubus

  • badmoogle

    Needs more Todd McFarlane.
