Meme this. Looks like Cloud is some open carry proponent with this huge ass sword on his back while he's sitting.

looks like he is compensating for something with a sword that big.

i could cleave you in half with my "sword", babey
my sword is too big for your sheath (i guess this works better in german)

if that chair was just a little bit lower, he would not be able to sit straight like that. some real careful measuring they did.

when he wants to stand up he can't lean back even a bit or he will pierce the floor

It's pretty depressing, but my expectations were so low that I'm over the moon that they gave the poor girl a decent sports bra, shorts (or a skort, can't tell), and some semblance of abs.

That being said, I still wish she had a bit more muscle considering her background as a martial artist - her legs in particular don't look quite like they're in proportion, and it's a bit unnerving.

I would have loved if we'd gotten something similar to this:
I would love it if Square made her more buff.

Since this is UE4 and also coming to PC at some point, I imagine people can mod some more toned muscles onto her normalmap or something.
You know darn well that's not going to be what gets modded....

It'll take several years of foreshadowing, but I would love it if at some point during the final part....

they revisit this shot, except now Cloud has moved to the middle stool to sit right next to her

I still prefer her Advent Children design but this looks fine for the most part. The faces as a whole are bothering me. It’s like a mix of Kingdom Hearts and something else.

well tifa has always been depicted as a bit bustier (not talking about the comical fmv model here). so portraying her with a big but not comically large chest is alright imo. its as in character as it can get
Yeah her CG model was busted...pun...probably intended. Her being more fit looking makes sense, I wouldn't mind her slightly more buff, but nothing in the way that makes her look like she's on PED's though. I fell in love with her all over again the moment I saw her.

god, the amount of fans that are legitimately angry her boobs aren't oversized is astounding.
or that putting a sports bra on her is somehow a radical change.

especially with the claims that anyone talking about her being sexualized are somehow body-shaming... a fictional character.... that can't grow her own boobs......

All the updated designs for all the characters are great so far. I think I'm most excited for Red XIII and Cait Sith because they are most at risk for being out-of-place with the human characters.

I wish they'd increased muscle tone about a quarter turn on the dial but I’m 90% satisfied. Which is more than I was counting on from contemporary SE. Big wins with the sports bra and skort.

Basically I’m at “just don’t faceplant on writing her and don’t be an asshole with the camera angles and we fine.”

I love that Square Enix's marketing department knows full well that Tifa is Best Girl and designed this entire phase of the marketing campaign around her reveal.

this thread is weird.

on the one hand we got people laughing at 2chan/4chan tears about Tifa getting nerfed and not being sexy enough.

on the other hand you got some unsubtle thirst and entitled possessive creepiness about how everyone would tweak the looks of a fictional waifu to conform to their fetish about bust size, toned, bare skin and THICCness.

Have fun and like or do not like the new designs as you see fit. But this, this here? it ain't great.

Just be prepared for some particularly creepy takes about how she doesn't look "loli" enough.

It's like I said, characters like Cid, Vincent and the Turks are going to come and go without much blowback at all. This is primarily aimed at the ladies.
Did you miss the threads complaining about Barret's voice sounding too stereotypically black or the other thread about him not looking black enough?

I feel, at least in my case, that if people want to see more muscle toned Tifa is because SE games and specifically Nomura designed ones are filled with this skinny model female body type and would like to see some more distinct and different female body type, just like we have on men.

Cassandra for AC was so well received because she wasn't accommodated to the ideal model female type and was presented as a hardened warriorzwhich made sense for the character.

Tifa is a martial artist warrior, a very strong one, yet she has the body of a model. She is supposedly trained for years, it would made sense to have more muscle definition.

But yeah, but all means put us in the same camp of "I want watermelons titties with bouncing" group.
