One of the most exciting showings at E3 2019 was, without a doubt, the Final Fantasy 7 Remake. Square Enix not only showed off gameplay and a new trailer, but they also announced a release date of 3 March 2020. The game has changed quite a bit but everything seems to be for the better and the combat looks awesome. However, it seems that there was actually a bit of controversy surrounding one character, Tifa Lockhart. More specifically, her chest size and how it has been reduced in the remake.
Honestly, I can’t believe there is even a discussing surrounding this, as it is the developer’s decision and Tifa Lockhart in the original Final Fantasy 7 did have an exceedingly large chest if you ask me. According to reports, Tifa Lockhart’s chest size reduction was a decision made by Square Enix’s ethics department so that she can look more natural.
So what is an ethics department for a game publisher and what exactly do they do? Well, according to a Square Enix representative (as reported by Polygon), it was explained that:
Final Fantasy 7 Remake will release on 3 March 2020 and with Tifa Lockhart’s chest being much smaller than the original.
What do you make of this reduction and should there even be a debate surrounding this change by the developer? Let us know in the comment section below and check out the Final Fantasy 7 Remake trailer from E3 if you haven’t already.
