I can’t lie though, I got tears in my eyes watching that trailer. Even though I’m still rooting for Yun-seong, it feels good to have Hwang back in such a bombastic capacity. Also that trailer has implications that the story only gets “worse” from here on.
I had a hard yet fulfilling and really fun time designing this one. It's kind of a reimagining of her SCIV 2P, this time with less Mary Poppins and more coquettish, rogue, burlesque street assassin Neve.
I actually quite liked her CE, if mostly because of the near direct reference to her duel with Mitsurugi in the SCIII intro. Plus, it's still one very clean slash, now it's just bolstered by who I can only assume to be a visage of Bishamonten/Vaisravana.
This iteration of Setsuka isn’t as fingerbreaking as previous iterations, but I’m certain I’m still gonna be having bruised thumbs playing her.
Gonna jump into Soul Chronicle after labbing with her in her SCIV outfit, complete with recolored umbrella :sc3set1:
I was running through Soul Chronicle just to get myself all prepped up for Setsuka (and gaining SP for unlocking everything again) and I entirely forgot that everything and anything that can be unlocked with SP is already available right from the start lmao.
My immediate guess would be Bishamonten/Vaisravana, aka a Japanese war deity (since the woman is holding a bunch of weapons). They’re also one of the Seven Lucky Gods, of which there are seven pictured in her CE, but I dunno for sure.
