Final Fantasy VII Remake: Japanese fans disappointed with Aerith design

It seemed like Square-Enix had hit the mark with the long-awaited new trailer for Final Fantasy VII Remake, shown during PlayStation's second episode of State of Play.

The vast majority of fans eagerly awaiting the return of Cloud and companions said they were particularly impressed by the stylistic choices with which the company is modeling settings and characters of the iconic JRPG's remake, but it seems that it is impossible to please everyone

Part of the Japanese users have in fact declared themselves disappointed and upset by the design of Aerith one of the characters to which the players have remained the most loyal over the years. Apparently, Japanese enthusiasts believe that the girl's face is too long and that her general appearance reveals an age too advanced compared to what they would have expected (remember that Aerith has 22 years in the game.

The users in question did not limit themselves to denouncing the fact, but they even "corrected" the design thought by the artists of Square-Enix donating to Aerith a less elongated and slightly rounder face, so that it was closer to the eastern stylistic canons. You can analyze everything in more detail through the Tokyosaurus video that we reported at the top of the news. What do you think about it? Does it make sense to complain about this design choice by Square-Enix?

We take this opportunity to remind you that, according to the latest financial report from the Japanese company, Final Fantasy VII Remake could be published, together with Project Avengers, in the second half of the fiscal year 2019-2020.
