Let's Speculate on Tifa's Design in Final Fantasy VII Remake

I mean they already toned down Barret's everything and Cloud definitely got a leg nerf, I don't see why Tifa's breasts would be exempt.

Still gonna miss the stylized characters though.

She has official bust-waist-hip measurements, so I think they will use those when creating her model. As for clothes, one way or another her original outfit will always be available in the final release.

Has anyone posted this one yet?



I don’t like it, but I guess it matches the old source material. I’m sure it will be great if the redesigns in Advent Children and Dissidia are anything to go by.

Edit: posted on the previous page I see
 
I hope they make her cut, but no woman specializing in a striking based martial art would be this big. It’s a huge amount of extra weight to carry.

Actually even functionally oriented power lifters wouldn’t be this bulky, as they prioritize flexibility and speed, just body builders.

But, seriously, I hope they don’t make her a waif. As someone suggested earlier a Korra-esque build would work.

While I understand that remake FF7 is trending more toward realism, I think Barrett is already representative of “more muscle mass than is practical” argument used for Tifa here.

Sure it doesn’t (nor could it) need to be completely realistic. I’m just responding to the general idea that she should be super buff because she’s a martial artist, which is itself an argument based in desire for realism.

And not to be too nerdy but Barret’s build isn’t beyond the realm of plausibility and might be pretty practical for absorbing the kickback from a Vulcan cannon =P

Give players option. Have a default design that fits the artistic style of the Remake, an Advent Children skin, and a revamped OG skin. Options are great especially if free!

Doesnt look like it, Barret's old VA has already been deconfirmed, and Cloud and Aerith sound significantly different.

As much as I'd love Steve Blum back, I think it's a total recast
Steve Blum voiced Vincent Valentine. Cloud is voiced by Steven Burton who, to the best of my knowledge, has written in his contract that he will always voice Cloud in English. No if nor buts.

I don't believe he would be replaced so easily.
 
I expect it to look super similar if not the same in a general sense. Honestly just change the skirt to some shorts and its cool. You know damn well they'll pull some dumb ass panty shots if they go the short skirt route.

You know, I was thinking that perhaps SE is planning the remake to be a reboot of all things FF7. Wipe the slate clean and start from scratch. The character's old VAs would have to go.
its not a reboot, its a remake. everything still exists as it was...its not an intent to wipe away the past or redo things. rather, this is a rebuild for a new generation.

I don't expect much, her breast size is not an issue, it's more how she's presented, having Tifa fit like Korra would be pretty neat to see. If they don't give her jiggle physics I'll be happy, it always looks bad.

13 plus years discussing Tifa.
I felt it was always fairly obvious, but judging by the increased reactions since last week's teaser, I think it's safe to say that she's the most popular female character in the whole FF franchise, and one of the most recognizable videogame heroines period (for better or worse).

I'm even willing to give a little benefit of the doubt that not every person hoping there isn't a "boob nerf" speaks out of a shared sentiment to see her given the best design treatment. The problem is few people can agree on a "middle road" look: it's either "flat" or "gigantic" with no in-between.

At the end of the day I'm not hoping for any extreme makeovers. As long as it's a design where most people can go "Yeah, that's alright. It's sexy but not in an overly Cindy way", then that's all I could hope for.

There's no winning with her design, especially online.

OG Design = Too Sexualised
Smaller breasts = Censorship
Different design = Changing things

It doesnt matter what she looks like, SOMEONE will complain

It won't matter as long as the design itself reaches some objective metric, even if that is also debatable.

Which is why the Scarlet slap fight is also a low mark seeing how it's obviously tailored around "Woo hoo! Catfight (hope they make out)!"
idk, I still like the idea of a physically & mentally exhausted Tifa beating Scarlet at her own game. Plus its a fun & quick lil timing mini-game. I had her totally annihilate Scarlet like 6 slaps to 1!

There is a lot of potential for winning. People who would cry about censorship or positive changes in a remake with huge changes are not worth worrying about. They can also enjoy the game in 10-12 years when they grow up.

Just keep her similar to her old design with AC like proportions and dont put in pantyshots or weird jiggle physics.

Done and dusted

I’ll bet you my bottom dollar Tifa will be wearing a skort in the remake. She’ll get to keep her skirt look but also not flash onlookers everytime she kicks.

Ive never actually played ff7 and ive seen lots of fanart and whatever but I guess ive never seen her actual cutscene model in the game or paid attention to it when i did see it. Those are some fucking ludicrously huge boobs. Most of the horniest fanart ive seen has never gone that extreme!

This is a wild-ass revelation to me. Even Lara Croft is nothing compared to this
