The Final Fantasy 7 Remake has long been confirmed to introduce elements that were not present in the original game. These changes include features and character designs, but the original Final Fantasy 7 story will reportedly be kept intact. Meanwhile, fans have once again discussed the potential changes to Tifa Lockhart’s design, especially her breast size. Should Square Enix consider changing Tifa?s design in the upcoming remake?
The Final Fantasy 7 Remake Reddit has a thread discussing the possible changes on Tifa?s design, but the discussion veered toward the character?s breasts. It?s possible that Square Enix is currently in a dilemma in redesigning Tifa in the remake as it tries to consider the content for their fans as well as the backlash of naysayers to avoid further issues. Square Enix hasn?t commented about Tifa?s design as the character is yet to be revealed in any of the game?s trailers.
Along with Tomb Raider?s Lara Croft, FF7?s Tifa Lockhart is one of the known female leads back in the PlayStation era due to her large breasts and curvaceous body. Fans remember her as the busty brawler in Cloud?s party, and she might be pursued to have a fanservice character in the game.
However, Gaijin Goombah argues in his video that Tifa Lockheart was crucial in the Final Fantasy 7 series as she was able to save the main protagonist?s life a few times. Her breast size shouldn?t also be focused on as that doesn?t define her character in the game. More than just being a woman of near ideal proportions, the female brawler has definitely made a large impact in the story of Final Fantasy 7.
If possible, Tifa could return with a slightly different attire from the original game. Her costume design back in the original Final Fantasy 7 may have had something to do with the hardware limitations of the game. Now that the PlayStation 4?s hardware is capable of processing more detailed 3D characters, Square Enix may take this chance and redesign her costume to improve it.
Additionally, Square Enix?s Hajime Tabata has confirmed strong, meaningful female characters in the upcoming Final Fantasy 15, so Square Enix should continue that practice in the Final Fantasy 7 Remake. For now, Square Enix shouldn?t bother with altering Tifa?s breasts unless it?s detrimental to her new design.
