literally the only thing I don't like the look of are the human faces. The demi human-cat people are fine, the enemies, and of course environments are top notch. but some of those human models....I mean I get that it's probably an homage to xenosaga and everything but still.

So far this game looks absolutely phenomenal, but I really hope Monolith "upgrades" the character models.

Honestly Monolith please do upgrade them. Not being a graphics nut, but how can a game looks like this,

And then looks like this? Doesn't make any sense!

@Ryno Agreed, but the character models is just plain awful. It's like looking at a PS2 game. If Monolith ships the game with the characters looking like that, I will be deeply disappointed considering I've been hyped for this game since E3 2013 and I'm convinced that this will be a 10/10 game.

I don't mind a bit of weird face for character customization and the biggest possible world on WiiU. I mean we never saw the faces in earlier trailers and this doesn't look all to bad for the overall feel of the game.

Everything can change, but I'm never changing who I am

@Akazury Did you look at the second picture? It's not just about the faces, the whole character models just feels extremely outdated. Personally I'm not a graphics nut, but this is borderline unacceptable in 2015. The thing I really don't get is that the entire game looks simply outstanding (first picture) but character looks like it came out of a PS2 game (I'm not even hyperbolizing). I mean seriously, what's going on? I sincerely hope that it is just a rushed version to accommodate for the E3 showing and not the end product.

I personally think they just have a hard time with the character art. Maybe the designer is just not that skilled at just that. After all the human face and what not is hard to do. The past game everything looked great but the characters just looked so so.

..... This isn't Square Enix.... where most of the effort goes into how pretty the characters look then the substance and depth of a JRPG

I own a Wii U and 3DS. I also own a PS4!

Have you played Xenoblade Chronicles...or just about ANY other Monolith game ('cept maybe saga)? Most of their characters models are kind of simple, but it's always been about how they make those simple models interact with an amazingly artistic world (even with lower resolution Xenoblade is more artistically minded than just about every other prettier looking cough$$$tween$$$cough counterpart, same goes with Xenogears and Baten Kaitos).

I'd say if it's bothering you THAT much you might need to pack it up, buy a PS4, move on over to Neogaf, and eagerly await the next Final Fantasy and CoD. I'd rather play an amazing game with meh graphics and phenomenal artistic design in 2015 than a generic Sqaure Enix or EA cash-in that looks amazing.

You guys are hard to please. We will have options to make our character look however the heck we want and this picture doesn't look bad.

Anyway, these ladies look fine by me.

Never played the first so I don't know what it's like, I would like to try out a 3DS spin off or something if one were to come out since I don't own a U.

@R_Champ Whoa whoa simmer down cow boy. Never thought my gripe about the awful character models will need me going to Neogaf and buy a PS4 instantly. Dude you better swallow some chill pill, cause I can smell smoke from here.

@Ryno Now imagine that with much better character models. boing boing baby. Out of all seriousness though, those pictures you posted are fine. They look up to date and I have no problems with them. I'm talking about the one that I posted. I'm pretty confident those are just rushed E3 footage and the end product will look 10x better.

Yep, you confirmed it, the faces look plastic. That didn't help the cause one bit. There is very little detail to those faces.

With that said it won't bother me one bit as I'll enjoy the game as a whole. The feet on Fire Emblem never bothered me in the least!

@Undead_terror I'm pretty sure this game is going to rock my world. It's just a little gripe that I have on how the character looks in the E3 footage. As @Ryno pointed out, they actually look okay in the treehouse demo event. The E3 footage they showed us is just plain awful in my opinion.

XCX is a Wii U game. If you aren't hyped for it or even don't want a Wii U... why are you in this thread? Just wondering.
