There are various intense moments in Ultimate Fantasy 16; even from the start of the sport, the place you’re engaged in a large-scale chase scene involving a pair of grilled Eikons, Sq. Enix retains the adrenaline excessive within the greatest RPG hit of 2023. However one of the crucial extra time concerned one of many recreation’s nice villains, Hugo Kupka, and the god who resides inside him, Titan.
Warning: Spoilers for mid-to-late gameplay Ultimate Fantasy 16 forward
The fight between the Titans, foreshadowed and telegraphed from the beginning of the sport, is necessary. No pun supposed. Occurring in a number of locations and in a number of sentences, the grudge between grizzly protagonist Clive Rosfield and human mountain Hugo Kupka is among the central conflicts studied within the recreation.
And with good motive; each males suppose they’re vindicated of their hatred for one another, each would put their lives on the road to defend their concept of justice. Each are cussed and self-destructive in pursuit of their beliefs. This battle, in essence, enhances lots of the principal themes of Ultimate Fantasy 16. So it stands to motive that the (eventual) struggle between the 2 is so climactic, and is such a giant a part of the sport’s focus.
Anybody who has managed to subdue Titan not less than as soon as is aware of the destiny of poor Hugo’s arms; he’s actually disarmed by Clive within the closing moments of their first shattering assembly. Kupka is rapidly retired, although; dragged away by unknown forces to an undisclosed location which Clive later units out to seek out because the hound that he’s him.
However that second – seeing Clive’s blade rise, lower and burn with a searing flame – is kind of impactful. A couple of moments in the past, Titano boasted that he “ended your life along with his naked arms.” Ah, the irony. For the participant it’s a second of surprise; Clive, along with his untrained and unreliable energy, can sever the arms of a god. His energy is simply beginning to present.
So to see Sq. Enix launch one among their very top quality Play Arts Kai figures of Kupka with replaceable arms… is plenty of enjoyable. I am going to word that perhaps it is a missed alternative, although: Within the facet picture, you may see that there are a set of expressive arms you may match the mannequin, however there are not any steel arms (these you may. We’ll see Kupka tailored later within the recreation, when all the pieces “will get a bit Jamie Lannister”).
Kupka is not alone: there’s additionally a determine for each Dominant/Eikon in Ultimate Fantasy 16, in addition to the most effective boy Torgal. Every digit will web you a handful of gil, weighing in at $129.99. Sq. Enix notes that shipments are anticipated to happen at varied occasions over the following 12 months.
Is that this the type of factor you are desirous about gathering? I can even embody a picture of Torgal on this piece, as a result of – effectively, take a look at the standard!
