Jiggly bits for Final Fantasy

2 min read

There were plenty of things wrong with Final Fantasy XIII – linear game play, irritating characters, boring plot.  However, I didn’t think anyone thought the thing missing from FFXIII was jiggly boobs.  Apparently, I was wrong.

I’ll admit it, when Snow was injured and shirt-less, I was a happy gamer.  However, for the most part, Final Fantasy is a series about emotional connections, amazing characters and epic stories.  Not anymore, it would seem.

When Lightning returns, she will be back and bigger than ever.  Yup, she got a boob job while she was away.  Not only will we see her going from a C to a D, but she’s also getting a touch of DOA physics.  Nobuhiro Goto, the character modeling designer went so far as saying:

Yes, her chest jiggles. Since everyone can decide what costume she’ll wear, you can make sure it does (laughs). By the way, Since Lightning swings her arm when you change her weapon in the menu screen, that’s a recommended action for sure-fire jiggling! To see it even better it could be useful to equip a small shield. Look forward to it!

Really?  Look forward to some unnecessary sexualization of a strong female character?  The only thing wrong with Lightning originally was that she was boring and stiff – not physically but emotionally!  Giving her bouncy boobs won’t change anything.  How does this fix the fundamental problems with this current iteration of the game?  This is just debasing and sad.  Social sharing for killing bosses, boobies with realistic jiggle – who do they think is the target audience for this game?!  I think the time has finally come for me to hang up my fangirl status – how can I be a fan of Final Fantasy when they move in this direction, boobs first.
