Steel Claw

Image of the Day - October 03, 2012

In the English localization of Phantasy Star II, the weapons used by Nei were called Bars. The name might conjure an image of rounded stick weapons, like escrima or nightsticks. But in the original Japanese game, these weapons were something vastly different: a trio of razor sharp claws mounted on a glove-like device. The claw design appears much more deadly, especially in this depiction from the game manual. Each blade looks to be about three times the length of the back of the hand. Hitting a monster with a steel bar might hurt, but would probably have been a lot less lethal than slicing the same target up with a claw on each hand.
