Thanks to Japanese gaming mag V-Jump, we've learnt a little on one of the new characters set to appear in Final Fantasy XII. Pannero is a 16 year old blonde girl who is apparently a "friend" of strapping lad and main character Vaan.
Of course, the main heroine of the title, Ashe, has already been revealed, and the two main characters tend to get it on in FF title. But maybe Square Enix is cooking up some kind of unrequited love, soap-opera-bizarre love triangle thang. Or maybe it's just decided to go for the adult market and stick in a saucy menage a trois.
Whatever, with the game not set for release until 2005 - and late 2005 at that - there's plenty of time for more juicy details to do the rounds before we actually get to play the title. Expect a slew of info on Final Fantasy XII to emerge at this year's E3, which is just a few short weeks away now.
