Gilgamesh is back… as an enemy in Final Fantasy Type-0. He’s a l’Cie with the power of Genbu’s crystal. The cast of characters you control are from Suzaku, so the two groups will clash.
Famitsu also has details on Eight, another one of the characters names after a deck of playing cards. Eight believes weapons snatch lives so he chooses to fight with his fists. He’s an excellent observer and can survey a battlefield immediately. While he has inner strength, Eight needs to learn how to hold back his emotions. At times he can be quite competitive.
Alecia Al-Rashina is another new character, but she isn’t playable. She is the mysterious director of magic at Suzaku’s peristylium. No one knows when she arrived in Suzaku, but she’s quite famous for her unprecedented magical talent. Regarded as a genius, Alecia’s job is to develop and reform magic.
Final Fantasy Type-0 is slated for a summer release on PSP in Japan.
