Honestly Valeria deserves a second chance, bring her back with a complete moveset.Confirmed Valeria has more boobs than Setsuka, I can sleep tonight. Next.
Plot-wise she's the only maid maybe could become a 'true' character, but I think devs don't have intention to bring her, except if they have MUCH budget to make/bring more filler characters. If I remeber correctly some of her kicks are from Tekken characters and Algol absorves some of her moves alongside the Revenant's Wave Blade moveset.Honestly Valeria deserves a second chance, bring her back with a complete moveset.
Mitsurugi and Sophitia are also "de-aged", especially Mitsurugi, but effectively anyone who is representing their SoulCalibur I persona basically is like that. You could argue Seong Mi-na is looking younger Azwel as Kilik and Xianghua, it's really kinda bizarre to have some designs clearly from ~1586 and others from ~1590, but that's what happens when you make this kind of game that spans years of timeline. SoulCalibur VII likely won't have this, though, assuming it's covering SoulCalibur II-IV, all taking place between 1590-1591. Though it might have some after years to build us towards the future more gracefully than was done with SoulCalibur V.The more conservative design may arguably be connected to the younger look she has. But it’s weird how she got a rare de-aged design.
I don't really have hopes for the shop girls, considering they seem fine with us just buying stuff straight in creation or museum. All three of their styles, though, were quite unique and brought something cool to the table. Maybe not literally bringing back Lynette, Phualin, and Valeria, but repurposing their styles for a new character would be the more realistic expectation. If we must eventually get Xiba back, for example, he could use Phualin's extendable staff to be a better representation of the Monkey King that he's already doing, rather than aping Kilik's style poorly and also stealing from Mi-na to take them both off the proper roster. It's a win-win, to keep everyone and to give everyone more originality. The grieve edge has potential for a lot of possible applications, but tambourines, that would take a special level of Dampierre to sell properly on a non-joke character.Honestly Valeria deserves a second chance, bring her back with a complete moveset.
I totally disagree, Hualin is basically Kilik, most of her attacks are with her hands and kicks ( martial arts, maybe reference to their origin or something like that) in which she uses the rod as if it were a lip gloss, the only 'unique' thing is that she can do is expand her generic rod into a giant dildo, which in my opinion it leaves her as the worst maid in the game, in addition to being a copy of Chun Li with less thick legs.Xiba with Hualin moveset
Hideo himself said that Setsuka is 4th in height, but she wears those goofy platform Oiran sandals that adds significant heightConfirmed Valeria has more boobs than Setsuka, I can sleep tonight. Next.
Yeah, I liked that one, too (obviously, duh). While I'm okay with her new hairstyle, I dearly hope that her hairpins/hair ornaments will be seperate ExEq items (without the meh flower), so we'll be able to recreate something similar with the Geisha hairstyle or her SC4 hairstyle.I think they should've gave her the unused longer geisha hairstyle in the SC3 1-player concept art even if they kept it all blonde.
