    Anime Avatars

    I don't know if this has been talked about before but I thought it worth a try to talk about. What would you guys think of seeing an anime version of your characters as an avatar (similar to any other final fantasy game out there)? It sounds kind of difficult to see being implemented, but then I saw this video of the upcoming fire emblem game:

    As you can see, the characters avatar is changing as you select your character's features. How awesome would that be! And imagine a party UI similar to FFX's. I always thought that interface was amazing.

    When I did my first Chocobo Escort guessed I giggled like a smitten school girl when I saw the classic FF Chocobo sprites in my menu.

    While the anime/drawn facial icon is kind of interesting I think it would take far too much effort, unless they gave a stock image for the race and skin color. Adding the equipment every single patch would be a massive undertaking for such a small addition.

    NES/SNES Sprited facial icons next to a target and PT list though.... Perhaps a bit more feasible. Those templates are much easier to create and work with then original artwork.

    This is what PLers actually believe. May Altana have mercy on our souls...

    With Akihiko Yoshida on board with the game, I'd like to see mini-portraits for our characters in this simple 4 Heroes of Light style.



    Or something like in FFT =)

    I like the idea but I'm 100% sure there are people who'd like to see western style artwork like the one below. So I'd love to see 2 options from other artists. I think I saw it in one of the FF series back then where you can change the portraits to chose from 2 artists.

    Too much effort for a minor feature if you ask me. I'm fine with autogenerated avatars we have now.
    It'd be better if they allowed us to set our own avatars, then all the artists could draw their characters themselves.

    edit: oh, you meant ingame oO
    I don't see where you'd need avatars in ffxiv tbh, except for party list, but then they'd be too small to be able to distinguish between them

    ...we already have the forum avatars that behave the same way

    other than that, waste of resources and out of place, especially making an extra western version....what the actual fuck
