Square Enix Announces Xenogears Bartholomew Fatima Bring Arts Figure for Pre-Order

Square Enix has announced that pre-orders are now available for a Bring Arts figure of Bartholomew Fatima from the classic PlayStation JRPG Xenogears. He’s a party member who manages the Yggdrasil ship, which has played a significant role throughout his lineage.

In addition to the interchangeable face and hand parts characteristic of the Bring Arts figure line, users can attach optional parts like two whips that can be held in Bartholomew’s hands and one that can be fastened near his waist.

Xenogears is a PlayStation 1 JRPG that is often considered masterclass due to its intricately woven narrative and compelling setting. Many fans have been clamoring for it to receive an HD-2D remake as it has remained largely neglected aside from a PlayStation 3 PSN release.

Set in a world suffering from war, protagonist Fei Fong Wong eventually finds himself confronting a machine perceived as a god, Deus. Combat featured mecha-like components with useable mechs called Gears.

Xenogears was the first entry of the Xeno series, which is well-known nowadays for Xenoblade. However, unlike the rest of the games, Square Enix owns Xenogears, making the idea of a remake a curious one. Other Xeno games include the Xenosaga entries, which weren’t exactly significant commercial successes. Xenoblade on the Wii is when the franchise started to grow in popularity, especially in the West.
