Gilgamesh Changes Weapons Each Time You Attack In Dissidia 012[duodecim]

By Spencer . February 15, 2011 . 6:28pm

imageV-Jump has the first details about Gilgamesh, a new character for Dissidia 012[duodecim]: Final Fantasy from Final Fantasy V.


Being a weapon collector, Gilgamesh brings a number of arms into a fight. Each time he attacks he changes weapons. It sounds like you won’t know which sword Gilgamesh uses for each strike because he doesn’t even know himself. During what appears to be Gilgamesh’s EX-Burst, he drew the powerful Excalibur sword.


V-Jump also mentions the magazine will give readers a code to download a Leon costume for Squall. The Dissidia 012[duodecim]: Final Fantasy legacy edition found in Europe includes a code for this extra outfit. Square Enix has not mentioned the Leon costume or how to acquire it in North America at this tiime.

  • Can’t wait to try and deliver a final breaking blow, only to hit with excalipoor and crit for a whopping 2.

    Oh well, as long as he has decent air attacks he should be fine.

  • What’s with all the weapons swapping characters? lol.
    Whatever, Gilgamesh’s still cool.


  • At least we finally get SOME sort of info on Gilgamesh. Now we just have to wait for a gameplay video of Gilgamesh and Prishe and the mysteries of the two shall be revealed.
