GamesCom has almost ended and according to twitter the SE staff is back in Japan and LA (or on their way to). For me it’s a great time to read all the FFXIII news, interviews and scans from GC on my own pace instead of the -OMG OMG- quick copy, paste without even properly reading the news.
The first thing I’m going to discuss today is not from GamesCom but from a scan which sufaced a few days before this event. It features the “glasses woman” now named as Jill Nabaato (English localization might slightly differ <maybe Navaato?>.)
I don’t think many people noticed that there is a man (?) standing behind her. The image is clearly in-game.
What we know about her (Jill Nabaato) from GamesCom:
- She has a direct relationship with Vanille
- She is an Lieutenant Colonel of the Holy Government.
- She wears glasses (nearsightedness, judging from the E309 trailer)
What I assume of the character in the back:
- It’s a cutscene and he doesn’t wear a normal soldier outfit, so he’s an important person involved with the Cocoon army and the cutscene.
- It could be a boss which you will encounter during the game.
I think this will be a pretty important character. We’ll probably get to know more about her next month as well as 2 other characters. Maybe we even get a Japanese website update with a “villain” section.
That’s it for today! Be sure to check back tomorrow for another in-depth article.
