A magazine scan has hit the 'net revealing a hithertofor unseen character in upcoming Final Fantasy XIII: the black, be-afro'd Sazzu Kattsuroi (“Sazzu”? What is he, a bird from the Lion King?). Sazzu bears two pistols in knee holsters (which seem like they'd be a pain to get at), and a chick. As in, a baby chocobo. Aww!


Kattsuroi's appearance has made a splash on the Japanese intarwebs, who are amazed to see a character with an afro in a Squenix game.

He looks really familiar. Like someone I should know in real life...

I love his green coat.

RedRoses: Some people are comparing him to a young Eddie Murphy =P

Disco: Hey, Barrett didn't have an afro!

The guy looks like John Shaft!  The Japanese article had Eddie Murphy (a little), Lionel Ritchie (perhaps in his days with the Commodores where he did sport an afro), Martin Lawerence (certainly because of his smile), and the actor from the 70s, Richard Roundtree (spitting image!) as the character's lookalikes.

I think you mean he looks like John Marshall Jones

That guy will never leave my party. Nice to see something other than "female Cloud", a generic prettyboy and a generic girl.gia said:

I think he meant a black person.

If the Chocobo lives in his fro, as RedZBabylon mentioned, I may DIE of glee. That would be epic.
