First, the guy pretended to act like Square made Squall out of him. Now, SE is including him in DoC as an important character. Seriously, what will be next? Michael Jackson as Sephiroth? XD

Oh, and the Japanese release date is apperently confirmed to be January 26th.

So what will this Gackt bloke do? And i still don't understand why he claimed that they modelled Squall after him, seeing as while Squall looks feminine Gackt looks like a tranny.

Gackt does look feminine. He's even more feminine than Squall is. Search images at google to see why.

And besides, I'm sure Gackt won't appear as Gackt in DoC. Maybe the character is just someone they modelled him after. But after they made FFX-2, I'm starting to find it less surprising that any single thing to do with J-Pop can be put into an FF game. (Please, someone shoot Tetsuya Nomura. I'm j/k)...

Gackt is cool, for a feminine Jpop star, and I wouldn't mind if he did a -song- for FF7:Doc...but him as a -character- God save our miserable souls *lmfao*

But freaking YAY! for the release date. I hope it sticks, I can't wait.

I don't quite get what they're doing with him....
So from what I understand they are shooting footage of him (in real life) and then working the CGI around him...correct?

My guess is they're just modelling the character after him. Just like they modelled the Onimusha 2 protagonist. Don't know if he'll be doing the motion capture as well.

Well, this is the weirdest thing I had to hear today laugh.gif . Anyway, while he doesn't ruin the thing it's OK for me.

So, I'll have to wait for 2006 Christmas for this game. If it is for waiting .. unknw.gif

He'll make 2 songs for the game, and also it was Nomura who wanted him in the game and Nomrua admitted that Squall was modelled after Gackt. He was happy to be able to use the real thing this time. Also many Japanese chicks went mad with joy when they heard this.

Okay, that does it, some one seriously shoot Tetsuya Nomura now. I don't really like that Nomura is assimilating too much J-Pop culture into Final Fantasies. Back when I played FF7 and 8, it was alright. But after I played 9 and found out about all the previous ones, I started to dis-prefer futuristic-modern settings. And then FFX-2 came out and included what was probably one of the most annoying in-game music (the themes and a few songs were nice tough) ever. The game wasn't bad, but I started to have doubts for the future path FF will take. I mean, it's pretty obvious after 12, FF13 will be done by Kitase, Nomura n co again and I'm hoping that they don't include too much J-Pop.

Not the Gackt, hes like everywhere....Tetsuya Nomura is mad, that is mighty weird. Gackt=important character. O_O They should at least put someone in with a bit more masculinity or hotness. Gackt is too tranny.

Ugh, I read about this before...

It's so unfair, you know? WHY GACKT!!!!! The most evil wannabe-Squall feminine gaylord... bad.gif

Sorry, but he really is a pain in the ass... literally I bet as well laugh.gif ...

Ok ok, I'll knock it off. Anyways, Nomura, why oh why?! I thought you learned from KH that singers like Hikaru are way better....

Are you sure about that? From what i know, Namura said that Squall's design was more influenced by River Phoenix.

Yea, you're right. He did state that Squall was designed after River Phoenix. I mean, if you can't see that you're blind... laugh.gif

Gackt was only claiming they did. Why? Because Gackt was wearing the same jacket as Squall, so he must have been modelled after him! (arrogance, cougcough...)

QUOTE
Squall is a young man with medium-length, brown hair and grey eyes (he is rumoured to be visually based on Japanese singer Gackt, but character designer Tetsuya Nomura has also stated that actor River Phoenix was also an influence on the character). A small scar runs diagonally across the bridge of his nose; he received it at the beginning of the game in a training duel against his rival Seifer Almasy, and left Seifer with a similar (mirror-image) scar in return.


I guess it's a mix of both.

So what exactly is Gackt doing in the game? Providing a voice? Singing a song? It won't matter, seeing as we won't see the Jap version anyway.

Like the article says, some "important" character will be modeled after him and he will be doing a couple of songs for the game. If he will be "important", then he will probably going to be in the english vesion as well.

^ If it is a character model, then for sure he will be.

Great. Another effeminate character. I don't know about anyone else, but that is the major thing i hate about Japanese character design, their obsession with feminine males and bending gender.
