    I'm not too fond of Nomura's re-envisioned design for Bartz, but oh well.

    Agreed, his take on Bartz is pretty gay, unfortunate, as I thought the designs up to this point were well done. At least Exdeath doesn't look bad.

    I would have preferred the Bartz that wears casual clothing. That'd be awesome, everyone all dressed in serious gear, and Bartz just walks in with a t-shirt and jeans.

    Bartz is his real name. Butz is a poor translation. It happens.

    Also, Ex-death is supposed to be a tree. WTF SQUEENIX!!!

    Yeah it is exdeath, i got confused for a moment because i accentually placed the ex death artwork in the final fantasy 4 galley, i corrected it.

    edit: dammit im confusing myself... off correcting the galleries once again.

    "Neo-Ex Death", Ex Death's final boss form, is a tree. I think regular Ex Death is the evil spirit of a tree in the form of a man... or something. All I know is that he's really, really fucking hard.

    The only one that is confirmed is Kefka.
    EDIT: I was looking for info on the game, and came across this article. It is old, but interesting. It is also completely wrong about Final Fantasy V, and I'm positive whoever wrote that never played the game. Apparently, only 9 titles will be represented, and with the revelation of Bartz and Exdeath, that makes 9 Final Fantasy games: I, II, III, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, and X. First, I'm disappointed that only nine games will be represented, and second, who the *!#$ made the decision to cut FFIV characters? Of all of the games you could possible axe! You cannot argue against it: IV is one of the most influential RPGs of all time, and perhaps the most influnetial in the FF series. Sure, others may be better, but IV is the landmark. Not to mention, so many characters from the game are awesome! Xeromus, Golbez, Cecil, Kain, Tellah... and they put FFII characters in over these guys! Ridiculous! I
    I also thought Vayne from FFXII would be cool, and had fingers crossed for Balthier. Well, at least there is still hope for Gilgamesh.

    Sorry but the last Square fighting game was total shit, this will be no different, square is not good at making games that aren't primarily rpgs.

    Yes Will, but being a total fanboy, I'll love it anyways. I could find hours of entertainment just beating up Tidus.

    I like Nomura's Bartz, but then again I like a lot of the stuff he designs.

    His real name IS "Butz Klauser".

    This is similar to the added "e" on "Locke" ("Lock" as a name would seem weird in English), "Sabin" (though "Mash" is still less silly), "Balthier" (original: "Balflear"), and perhaps the "h" on "Tellah" ("Tella" may look feminine in English and Romantic languages).  Then there are cases like "Kain" ("Cain" is too obviously Biblical), "Terra" ("Tina" is apparently too plain (or badly-associated) in English/the States), and "Kefka" (which I support, since "Cefca"'s pronunciation in English isn't apparent).

    Also, it's just "Exdeath", all one word (FFVA's music player be damned ('and your little 'Reina', too!')).

    EDIT: "Baflear" -> "Balflear"; side note: Add "Freya" vs "Freija" to the list (both are roughy said the same, though).
