Type-0 Shiva freezes up this week’s Jump

July 23rd, 2011 by Tony Garsow

This week’s issue of Jump features a look at one of Final Fantasy Type-0‘s summons: Shiva. While we’ve seen her in footage in the trailer, the magazine shows off the CG render of the classic Final Fantasy summon. Summoning in Type-0 can be accomplished by pressing the triangle and circle buttons together in combat under certain conditions. The player character will be terminated, and in their place a powerful summon will become playable to deal major damange to enemies.

In the case of Shiva, she will skate around on (brace for it) ice skates and attack enemies with the element of ice. Her attacks will freeze enemies in place and will allow her to easily use her close range abilities to take them down. Jump also explains more about the Phantoma system. When enemies are defeated they will sometimes offer “Phantoma” to be drawn from their corpses to the player character. This system functions as a method of restoring MP (or sometimes HP as my associate who attended the Odaiba event indicated) on the field. Phantoma will come in three colors: red, yellow, and purple which may differ depending on the strength of the enemy you face.

    Shiva in lingerie, alright…

  • Rattyinc

    Shivas always worn lingerie, icy lingerie though, they just went all sultry on this design looks great but doesn’t have that ice feel to her. Well… She MUST be cold in that outfit….

  • Aluminah

    Not really, it was never like this.
    Don’t confuse being semi-naked with wearing lingerie, because indeed, she’s always been semi-naked but she had different aspects to her image.
    In VII and VIII she looked like a goddess of some sort and for example in X, she looked all tribal and whatnot. Of course I agree on the icy aspect, which is actually weird as in game footage makes her look pretty icy, as in, blueish pale.
    In this image, she really just looks like a woman in lingerie.

  • SlappyTheHorse

    Is it just me, or does Shiva ice-skating seems very unsurprising? I personally preferred her in VIII, but then again, I thought VIII was their best game (tied with VII) and the most the summons there looked their best. If I got laid off as a GF and I were looking for a new job as an Aeon or Eidolon, I would definitely list FFVIII as a previous place of employment.

  • rattyinc

    I see your point about the previous versions of her. She does look goddess like in her previous incarnations. If you look at her from the revenant wings title its somewhat similar to this design, she has a blue bikini but a cape to look more emperess like. Anyway i think its SORTA difficult to say from this one shot, in game shots show her been all icy and all, so maybe like iceman she can make her body icy at will.
