While the topic of modeling and character design (usually female) is usually more of a discussion point for forums and other spaces outside of current industry news, sometimes it's the teams and studios themselves that create certain character features that you want to emphasize either because they're relevant to the story. ..or so that the player does not lose interest.
In a somewhat serious manner, the director of the upcoming PlayStation 5 exclusive game Stellar Blade, Hyung Tae Kim, spoke to… Gaming Radar+ About the character design of the novel's protagonist, Eve. This design, based on the body scan of Korean model Shin Jae Eun, particularly focused on the details of the back of the avatar. And you can guess where I'm going. Kim claims it was completely intentional.
“When it comes to design, we pay special attention to the back of the character because the player always looks back when he plays,” he said. “That's what they see most, so we thought that was really important.”
We'll soon get a better look at Eve's design when Stellar Blade releases on PS5 on April 26, 2024.
