Shiva makes Revenant Wings a family affair

Jeux France is reporting a juicy rumor about espers in FFXII: Revenant Wings. Not only is Shiva rumored to be included, but the super hot (cold?) ice goddess is bringing along a few members of her family. Apparently, there will be others, like a male version (Shiva's husband), and a young female child Shiva. We're not sure what role these might play, but it definitely makes for an interesting rumor. Jeux France expects confirmation (or negation) soon.

If this is true, we just hope that Little Shiva finds a few more scraps of clothing, or it may change the game just a little, and we'll be facing another one of these situations.

It's funny how one can use "Shiva" in a video game like this. Shiva is the God of Gods, the Supreme Ruler in Hinduism...

but meh, let's slap the holy and transcedent name 'Shiva' onto a hot ice-woman and gamers will love it.

Shiva sounds like Shiver. It may be sacrilege, but the power of the pun pwns all.

Pun Man: I love you.

dis_guy: Nice try, but if you read past common misconceptions, Hinduism is monotheistic and polytheistic. There are many gods but they all are manifestations of the One. Ponder that for a while :)

Pfft, since when has reality (as far as that extends to religion) had any bearing on games in this way? A cool name is all they need, and the rest can be made up or mashed together from various sources.

It works, and I've got no problem with it.
Anyone here drive a Mazda?

I thought Shiva was pretty cool, although my personal favorite has always been Bahamut, just because he could strike from above. I would love to see what powers these new aeons have.
