TGS: New Final Fantasy X character details
[03.30.01] » More information on FFX's growing cast -- including
a new party member.
The second day of the Tokyo Game Show has come
and gone, and our man in Japan, Andy Church, was back at the tightly-packed
Final Fantasy X display for more details and new
screenshots. In addition to the impressions posted
yesterday, new information has surfaced on the game's playable characters.
We previously translated FFX's black-clad
woman and spikey-haired
brawler as Lulu and Wakka, respectively -- these are now confirmed
as the Japanese names for the characters. More importantly, the four
previously-revealed characters will be joined by fifth, Kimari Lonzo.
Kimari is first seen
at the beginning of one of the demo's two scenarios in an impressive
fight with hero Tidus. The battle abruptly ends when the two discover
they are on the same side; Kimari is described as Yuna's guardian.
The imposing beastman joins the party as a traditional blue magician.
In addition, Wakka's Blitzball isn't the only unusual
weapon; magic-user Lulu employs an animated moogle doll to assault
Once again, our thanks go out to super Special
Agent Andy Church.
