Blood of Bahamut - New Square Enix RPG Game

Blood of Bahamut is a role-playing game by Square Enix, in which up to four players battle giant beasts that are featured on both screens of the DS.

The giants can summon smaller beasts, which the players must battle simultaneously. Defeating a giant's body parts and the smaller beasts will grant players "materials" which can be used to produce powerful weapons. The game will contain over 130 missions.It was released for the Nintendo DS in Japan on August 6, 2009. The game has not been announced for release outside the region.

The city suddenly comes under attack and protagonists Ibuki and Yui must defend it as well as other cities that were built on Gigants that are awakening. The story features seven main characters in total. The Gigants are sentient, and will also attempt to defend themselves, taking part in battles. The Gigants include Chaos Bahamut, Ifrit, Shiva, Fenrir, and Gilgamesh, many of which are also the names of summon monsters depicted in Square Enix's popular Final Fantasy series.
