By Spencer . August 2, 2012 . 1:15pm

Unchained Blades brought over a dozen anime artists together create character designs for a first person dungeon crawler. Furyu upped the budget for the sequel, Unchained Blades Exxiv, and hired even more illustrators like Suzuhito Yasuda (Durarara!! and Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor) who drew the game’s protagonist.



Unchained Blades Exxiv also has notable artists for the main enemies, the Five God Generals of the Abyss.



Etrian Odyssey artist Shin Nagasawa drew Zagan, a battle hardened warrior and the leader of the group.


Kumiko Suekane from the Ace Attorney series created Belial, a hot blooded character who’s attack power surpasses Zagan.


Kämpfer artist Senmu drew Shax, a sorcerer with a sharp tongue.



Arcana Heart artist Mizuki created Astaroth, the brains of the group and Shax’ sister.



Eiji Kaneda (Genesis of Aquarion) designed Vepar who has a lust for blood and is the most sadistic member of the group.


Unchained Blades Exxiv comes out on November 15 for Nintendo 3DS and PSP.

  • Look at Astaroth. Her jugs are so heavy she can barely stand.

    • XiaomuArisu

  • Davide Costa

    I wonder if they’ll hire more famous artist in the next game of the series (if they can).

  • klkAlexar

    I misread the title and thought that the Belial dude was a new character in the Ace Attorney series. And oh, hey, it’s Yamato. Why couldn’t we get some Yamato fanservice.

  • Gael Summers

    Is the name of their group an obvious nod to Tales of the Abyss’s 5 God Generals?

    Yknow, cuz the name.

  •  Kampfer? I’m amazed that that character doesn’t have big breasts.
    *Looks at sister*
    Oh, would you look at the coincidence.

  • Is it becuz of SAO tht Hilda looks lk a gender bended Kirito to me???
    Gender bended Astaroth LOL!! Well compare her to SMT counterpart….. 
    Shax reminds me of a certain Chidori…… Does she lk to smash things??
    Vepar….reminds me of EVERYONE OF THOSE CRAZY LOLIS. It seems lk they r hot stuff for every evil group in ANY games….
    Belial look lk a playa.
    Zagan looks lk Thor IMO lol.

  • Astaroth looks like the dumbest of the five to be honest…

    • Davide Costa

      Big chest isn’t equal to being stupid, same thing having blonde hairs.

  • Göran Isacson

    … I wouldn’t have thought that Belial was designed by the Ace Attourney art-person, truth be told. Doesn’t quite look… Ace Attourney-ish, but I guess that the designer really cut loose with their design this time because it was a fantasy-game?
