Square Enix - Final Fantasy & Realistic Hair

by Couchpotato, 2014-11-02 05:23:15

Well since it's Sunday here is an interesting article to waste your time reading  on the Huffington Post. The article talks about the Final Fantasy games, and realistic hair.

Gamers got an inside look at the upcoming "Final Fantasy XV" at an event in Paris Thursday, and there was one clear takeaway: the game's developer, Square Enix, is serious about hair.

Though the "Final Fantasy" franchise is immensely popular -- it's sold over 80 million games worldwide in its 27 years of existence -- there’s a lot riding on this latest sequel (and its hair).

In recent years, franchises from the West like "Call of Duty" have dominated the sales charts. Japanese games haven't fared, as well. "If ‘Final Fantasy XV’ doesn’t do well, perhaps there’s not much of a future for console games," FFXV co-director Hajime Tabata told this summer.

So, "Final Fantasy XV" needs to look really good to lure in an audience. One way to tell that’s happening? The hair. Check out this clip from Thursday's presentation, apparently showing the process artists and developers used to form an in-game character's hair.
