Assuming you're actually speaking in good faith, it's not about shitting on body types. Tifa Lockhart isn't a living, breathing human being who simply happens to have large boobs and likes showing them off; she's not a real human being that has a body type we don't associate with martial artists. When people talk about female characters in gaming being sexualized, being unrealistic, or having way bigger boobs/butts than particularly realistic, it all boils down to one thing: these characters are, the majority of the time, designed by men.It's those kinds of statements that bother me. People trying to be inclusive but then shitting on people with body types further from the norm. My ex had a really fucked up body image because of people acting like she was somehow unrealistic, or ridiculous, or absurd.
I’m fine with sexy costumes as long as it’s not exclusive to Tifa.
OMG, where is the elevatorAt this point I've exhausted anything I want to say in regards to the design change and the abject stupidity the usual circles are displaying. Further discussion on either would be pointless.
Instead, I want to talk about one particular scene that really stuck with me the more I think about it:
Yes, as the compilation furthered they got darker/browner.
Probably just stairs behind the pizza sign now, RIP.
Ooh, you think there could be Cloud-less segments of this game focusing on TIfa? There's already a bit of a gap in the story they could fill, showing what she and Barrett are doing after Cloud's fall.
All I ask is that they have Tifa show the same level of rage towards Sephiroth that Cloud does.
Yep. Her official eye color is red. It's a contrast to Cloud's blue eyes. Makes her look like an Uchiha.
Where'd she get stabbed again? In the chest?
IIRC, she actually got a wide slash, didn't she? So the scar would probably be even larger than Cloud's.
Not to mention she's like one of the few that actually knows what happened.
Seventy year development cycle for the full game confirmed.
Her outfit is pretty much the classic, just some minor changes.The more I see of the new design I like it less and less. Not only too busy but there is so much black now.
Her long dark brown hair and the sleeves she previously had, now with the sports bra you got black on her upper body, black on legs with the thigh highs, the black thigh highs make it so her boots don't stand out much as the contrast to her skin isn’t there anymore
Classic dlc pls Nomura
Its her classic outfit with needlessly added stuff. Oh yeah and she lost her red gloves as well because of course the design needed more black.
Square Enix always mix the best feature of each race into there character ( or what seems to be beutiful in their point of view ). So no, there is no definite race here , she look like the mix of everything with more asian influence. To be fair, she looks a lot more asian than anything else ( and I am asian person ).
Undoubtedly her fist weapons will show on the model. At least for anything in engine (which going by KH3 was actually a lot) maybe they chose a more neutral color to let them play with more colors in respect to her weapons.
What you mean like modifying thier model and rigging just to add proper stomach roll, and skin folding for then charcters are sitting or crunching?In the bar scene you see her from the side. Her stomach is shockingly thin. Like, does she eat well...? Does she have intestines? =P
Making her less extremely thin would give a better signal to women playing the game - high-profile games like these can have a beneficial effect on that front.
That happens with any realistic portrayal of comic or videogame characters. It happens all the time in super hero movies too. Adding black clothing is the easiest way to make a character look "cooler." It's a creative crutch, but it's so common I don't feel like wasting my breath on it. I don't like it, but I'm not that worried about it either. I have no doubt there will be a classic costume DLC that will solve that problem. Sucks that we'll have to pay extra for it, but that's how it goes these days. And I wouldn't complain even if there wasn't because otherwise Tifa's design is perfect.The more I see of the new design I like it less and less. Not only too busy but there is so much black now.
Her long dark brown hair , skirt obviously and the black sleeves she previously had, now with the sports bra you got black on her upper body, black on legs with the thigh highs, and the black thigh highs make it so her boots don't stand out much as the contrast to her skin isn’t there anymore

I mainly meant more width generally in the belly. It's out of proportion the way it is now.
Personally, I think she looks more Japanese than hafu or hapa. I'm disappointed she doesn't look more hapa. I prefer her face in the Riot Games concept art. That was nearly perfect.
If I had a dollar for every time people speak to me in Spanish....
It's almost like people don't understand how sports bras function. She's still big, just more reasonably supported.
