    Sayoko Hoshino was in charge of character texturing on Final Fantasy Type-0. For her contribution to Square Enix's ongoing "Creator's Message" series at the game's official blog, Hoshino decided to share details about her work on the game's panties.

    Originally, the game was set to have black voids for the insides of the characters' skirts. This decision was made due to the system's specs limiting the amount of resources they could devote to the characters. However, the staff felt that because players would spend most of their time viewing the backs of the characters, the feeling of excitement would be much greater if there was more than just a black void inside the skirts.

    As you might expect, adding in the panties wasn't a straightforward task. First off, the characters' legs were directly connected to the skirt, so there was actually little space for the panties. However, Hoshino feels that she and her staff were able to bring out uniqueness for each character.

    Hoshino went character by character detailing the panties and undergarments, but I have to admit that I'm all panited out for the day, so if you want the details you're going to have to read it at the official blog.

    Found it funny as a 'Oh Japan' moment, so that's why I posted it if some of you consider it not 'newsworthy'.

    I find it funny regarding the "feeling of excitement would be much greater if there was more than just a black void inside the skirts." part. xP
    Well, I guess it is better when a game character actually has underwear instead of just black since lots of games for the PS3, 360 and 3DS (if you include DOA) already put underwear on their characters. =3

    Just due to laziness I would have gone with the whole black void thing...

    I loled but it's nice that a woman is proposing these ideas and Sayoko is quite cute too. Do not want a black void at all that reminds me of censors and prefer the panty fanservice.

    Hmmmm... This is a good example of how even the smallest details need to be considered when designing a game.
    Even if it's never going to contribute to gameplay, this decision really affects the atmosphere the players (some more than others, obviously).

    I presume that these will only be implemented in female characters? Well then, I'll look forward playing with the female characters. :creep:

    Their attention to detail is truly something. Reminds me of players trying to upskirt Ashley in RE4

    But a black void wouldn't be all that bad. Just think black panties.

    I predict this will be removed in international versions.
    Unless this is Japan-only?

    Why would it be removed?

    And it's Japan only for now but this says otherwise

    'cause parents in the US are paranoïd and would probably sue game companies for having that in games.

    lol no, no they wouldn't.

    DOAX and the plenty of other games wants a word with you, panties are minor.
