New gameplay footage for the upcoming Final Fantasy game from Square-Enix has just hit the net and it’s in the shape of a summoning montage. Shiva and Odin are back baby, although this time things have changed.

Shiva, the ice summon, can be seen spinning tyres and unleashing some seriously frosty firepower onto her foe. Yeah, you read the first part right. Shiva, the biker goddess!

Odin, the not-so-headless-horseman, has lost his head.. and apparently the rest of his body too. The fearsome fighter is now a stampeding steed which you can climb aboard and utilise in battle.

And if you thing I’m talking a load of Odin manure, just take a look for yourself.
