FF7 Remake’s Tifa got a decent bra, not a breast reduction

Tifa gets proper support.

Conflicting translations of a Tetsuya Nomura interview about Final Fantasy 7 Remake’s Tifa have led fans to believe the character’s chest was reduced. In reality, Nomura said that Tifa’s now wearing a proper, restrictive bra.

An interview by Famitsu was picked up by outlets like Eurogamer and Polygon; there, Nomura was reported as saying “it was necessary to restrict her chest,” which was interpreted as reducing the size of her bosom. A subsequent follow-up with Square Enix’s Ethics Department suggested a breast reduction was necessary for alignments with classificaiton boards around the world.

Monster Hunter content creator Gaijinhunter, alongside Twinfinite, have contradicted this reading, saying instead that “restrict” in full context actually refers to ‘binding’… meaning that Tifa’s wearing a sports bra that keeps her assets in check.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be released in parts; the first heads to PS4 on 3 March 2020.
