Yep. Still has a large chest but is now wearing a sports bra (how could she not).They did about as good of a job with Tifa's redesign as anyone could realistically hope (from Japanese devs that are not From Software). They were never going to abandon her OG design of white top & black short-ish shorts/skirt altogether nor completely do away with big breasts but this design I feel is fairly decent modern more grounded/realistic interpretation of the original Tifa. Could've maybe used a bit more muscle but otherwise I'm fairly happy.
I wouldn't say by accident until they say something about it ...
Especially given that the game director on this puppy is a big Takarazuka nerd , so it's cool artstyle mixed with some sprinkles of Takaruzka references here and there .
In addition to Tawna, players will be re-introduced to Ami, Isabella, Megumi, and Liz. Together, they are now known as the Nitro Squad (formerly known as the Trophy Girls in the original CTR), and are now characters that you can race with! They can be unlocked using Wumpa Coins in the Pit Stop during the first Grand Prix. These global bandicoots hail from all over the world, and are ready to compete! There will also be new Motorsport skins for them as well, to really show off their speed and style.
Sweet! Funny thing that was one of the old "trophy girls" goals. In the epilogue one of them decides to get on the race track. And yeah, this is far better use of these characters than just "trophy girls".I'm sure some of you remember people complaining that Crash Team Racing dropped the trophy girls from the remake. Turns out they're still in, except now they're known as Nitro Squad and are unlockable racers instead of characters just standing around during a victory celebration
I think the main issue is just the style for final fantasy. Even many of the guys tend to be on the slim side with only a hand full on the larger side. I guess you could say they use a default anime look. Where most characters except for some extremes are basically models, yet still manage to be crazy strong.(Long time lurker, hi everyone).
I like Tifa's redesign too but I think she could be a bit more muscular too. For a fighter character Square (and some other developers to be honest) could get some inspiration from the Street Fighter muscle handbook. The book explains how to draw muscles to maximize expressiveness and muscle definition, even for smaller characters. Everyone thinks about Chun-li or Cammy when told muscles + women + Street Fighter, but a lot of the in game models just have cool, moderate muscle definition. Take Menat (alt costume to see the standing leg) :
Or Karin (her tights helps getting what could be done with Tifa):
But anyway, I'm glad they found a good balance between practicality and the keeping the iconic costume.
Fantastic changes.I'm sure some of you remember people complaining that Crash Team Racing dropped the trophy girls from the remake. Turns out they're still in, except now they're known as Nitro Squad and are unlockable racers instead of characters just standing around during a victory celebration
On Neogaf I'd barely make threads because I could never tell why anyone got banned there. Without that factor it turns out the real reason is because like 90% of people think criticism is a personal attack and go fucking crazy.
...Man those responses are disgusting.
Yep, as soon as someone not a white dude speaks up, the worms crawl out of the woodwork. At least since they don't read this thread I can demean them however I like here with impunity.
I missed this because I don't usually follow any Sony announcements but thankfully it looks like it's coming to PC, which is great because everything about it sounds awesome.Especially given that the game director on this puppy is a big Takarazuka nerd , so it's cool artstyle mixed with some sprinkles of Takaruzka references here and there .
A demo of the game has been showcased during a dev conference in europe and the director was straight up wearing a Princess Knight T-shirt .
My friend asked about it and the director admitted being big in Takarazuka type stories .
Wow. I thought I was prepared but I was not.
Jesus. There's disagreeing and then there's outright hosility. This isn't "I think you're wrong", this is "get out of my video game dicussion". I know it's E3, but people need to calm the fuck down.
Eh, I think it is great that instead of getting rid of them, they put them in a much better role, and the roster was in need of more female characters.Did they really need to keep the Trophy Girls around? As well as their original designs? They were a product of their time, sexualized women meant to be gawked at, and I’m not sure I’m comfortable with them being kept around and shown off as something worth knowing about.
Hell even Tawna’s redesign, even with the updated and tougher personality, is far too sexualized for my liking. Hell it’s even creepy because they’re freaking animals.
