Not underage-looking enough? Ugh...
The original was a pretty anime game.
It's not the eyes actually. In OP's shot, her hairline appears too low and gives the illusion that her eyes are placed too high.Actually the right one looks like it's the original one and the left one looks like someone took the right one and just stretched the upper part of her face. The eyes are really far up, it does look a bit weird I gotta admit. Doesn't really matter though as only one FF7 exists and I don't care about whatever this episodic butchery is supposed to be.
The thing to me is, if they wanna have their own weird aesthetic tastes they're welcome to it, but this sort of... possessiveness of other fictional characters; it just strikes me as unhealthy.
It's not just the cheek puff. They reduced her jaw considerably while also inverting the slightly convex slope of her nose into a more typical post-op nose.
See: The most popular Dead or Alive 5/6 characters in Japan.
I agree with you but with the remake, I guess they can show a little more her mixed blood so it's okay for me. But even if I'm wrong with my speculation, I will still like this design ahah.
