Faris has blond hair in this game...

I thought this was a celebration of FF's past. D:<
You can't go using the exact same old tracks from the NES era saying LOLNOSTALGIA and then change people's original hair colors!

I'm aware they fixed her hair on the iPod version, but that doesn't help the 3DS one any.

For whatever reason Square REALLY seems to like the lame Amano designs of FFV, which are undoubtaby his worst ones, with every character having white or blonde hair. Look at the mugshots of FFV Advance, they are incredibly ugly.

And it makes no sense. The in game sprites look far superior and more unique.

I've never been a fan of the Amano artwork, I don't know why everyone worships it. I feel the FF VI sprite work is so much superior to Amano art which almost never resembles the characters. One of the worst offenses in my opinion is FFIX

Zidane looks....passable. But that doesn't even remotely resemble Garnet.

Amano Faris is way better imo. Not because of the hair, but because of her outfit.

Also the iOS and Android version will have better sprites and portraits. Might be my first phone game.

Are they going to re-translate it again? The PSone translation was abysmal, and I haven't heard too many nice things about he GBA translation, stuff like it's full of pop culture references.

The GBA version was good, i dont know what people are complaining about. It's probably just that the game doesn't take itself seriously in the first place. Nothing to do with the translation. The Galuf death scene was done well enough for me to cry This new version is pretty much the GBA version but with better sprites and portraits.

I've always been ambivalent towards Amano's character art (though I think his monsters are great), but I think it's all shades of silly to complain that TFF sprites were based on characters' design sketches rather than on their sprites which were based on their design sketches. And in the case of Garnet, he drew more pictures than just one, and many of them do look like her CG representation. /shrug I guess your mileage may vary.

^The sprites are what we grew up seeing, and being so small, their hair was an important defining feature. This makes it very bizarre to see blonde Terra and Faris, instead of green/purple hair, respectively.

Green hair Terra yes. It suits her being different since shes a half esper. Faris no. Partly because the ff5 sprites were much less detailed than ff6, and partly because it didnt make her look like an androgynous pirate. The only thing that made her look like a man where her big hands. Just check out my post from earlier and tell me Faris doesnt look awesome there
