Rhinoblade (Blade of Rhinoceros)

Artwork of the "Rhinoblade", Ngarba Evou’s combat weapon, brother of Erine Kori-Odan. Rhinoblade artwork model

The Rhinoblade or blade of Rhinoceros or simply Rhino (as we call it in the studio), is Ngarba's combat weapon.

The image below is his artwork version.

It enabled us to reproduce the in game version whose sprites in game are below.

"Sprites in-game" of the Rhinoblade: here, you will discover the different forms it can take when Ngarba handles it. Rhinoblade's sprites in game

The Rhino is a sharp, powerful and heavy weapon like the rhinoceros. Its blade was made in Zama. It is so hurtful and heavy that we put a protection bracelet on Ngarba's arm so that the weapon would not break his arm. Ngarba must hold it well if not he runs the risk of loosing his arm or wounding himself. As you can see in the image below, we designed it having in mind a hook which will enable him to absorb recoil.

Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan is an incredibly interesting game...The closest comparisons I can make are the very different games Dust: An Elysian Tail and Dusty Revenge, who all have a similar flow to their combat.
