A Few More Details About Gilgamesh, Dissidia 012[duodecim]’s Scramble Fighter


imageDengeki Online also had a bit more information about Gilgamesh, a new character in Dissidia 012[duodecim]: Final Fantasy. As mentioned earlier, Gilgamesh is a "scramble fighter" and he pulls out a random weapon each time you attack. Gilgamesh has eight arms and fairly long reach. One of those arms is holding the Excalipoor, which deals 1 point of damage.


Director Takahashi Mitsunori says creating Gilgamesh felt similar to how he developed Kefka’s and the Final Fantasy VI villain’s reverse magic. The staff enjoyed brainstorming different attacks like rocket punch missiles which allow Gilgamesh to attack from a distance.


Gilgamesh’s another form wraps a turban around his face. His third form is based on pixel art and has Gilgamesh wearing full plate armor. Bartz’s third form is also based on unreleased pixel art from Tetsuya Nomura’s sketchbook. Exdeath’s third form is a Neoexdeath motif.


Yuna, as you may have seen before, has a wedding dress sans veil as her third form. Newcomer Prishe has a blue swimsuit.
