What has this to do with character design? Just because he's falling from... somewhere like Sora at the start of KH?
Behaviour, hair, face... that doesn't look like Sora at all. The outfit, well, I give you that, though his standard attire reminds me more of Fang. But he has an alternate outfit tht makes him look like a KH-Character. the one from the Omega-DLC. What's it called again?
But overall, no, he didn't remind me of Sora at all.
I hope SE are not recycling character design on the upcoming Lightning Returns...
You mean how Sora basically looks like Tidus? Or Hope, in terms of clothes and family-issues, was also like Tidus? Dammit, Squeen, why must you recycle TIDUS all the time? If you have to recycle a FFX's character design, let it be Auron!
In terms of this topic, no. But I never played KH, merely read hilarious spoof-recaps of it. But Noel is basically the original design of Fang, before Fang was given a genderswitch when it was decided Lightning was a serious main character and not a flirty one. Seriously, check out the QTE scene against Atlas, where Noel leans back and prepares to throw the spear.
