Cloud Strife’s Appearance Will be Redesigned For Final Fantasy VII Remake

In a move that will most likely annoy at least as many fans as it pleases, Square Enix‘s Tetsuya Nomura – the director of Final Fantasy VII Remake – has announced that they’re redesigning Cloud Strife for the remake.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Will Make Cloud Strife More of a Dork

They have said that they want him to reflect the dorky tendencies of how the original character was conceived. Many artists have drawn him to look more like a muscular superhuman, such as how he was portrayed in Kingdom Hearts, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT and Advent Children.

Goodbye, Cloud Strife. Goodbye to you too, Cloud Strife. Say hello to the all new and dorkier Cloud Strife in the Final Fantasy VII Remake!

They are aiming for a “more natural” and “more youthful” look for Cloud in the Final Fantasy VII Remake. Perhaps he will end up looking a bit more like Vaan from Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age?

No, no., no! I said DORK Cloud – not Dark Cloud! Still, you were a wonderful game. Oh, okay. I’ll play with you again later.

What do you think? Are you looking forward to seeing a dorkier, more natural looking Cloud or would you prefer his design to remain unchanged? Please comment below & let us know!

    :D He may look a little odd for the remake if he doesn’t have a mouth, Rakuyo. I loved the original – it’s the game that made me want to get into the games industry – but I’m still looking forward to playing the remake too. I’m doing my best to try and judge it on its own merits. That’s easier said than done with how much I like Final Fantasy VII though.
