While Motohiro Okubo is the public face and driving force of Soulcalibur VI, he's the producer. The director of the game is Yoshinori Takahashi, who has been with Project Soul for a long time. I just learned that he was the character designer of Soulcalibur IV, which means that costume design was his idea back then...

... and it explains a lot ;)

So basically, if you're wondering why Soulcalibur VI rivals or surpasses Soulcalibur IV when it comes to sexy fanservice, that's probably a big part. The guy who helped design the SCIV characters is now director and a major player alongside Okubo. That, and SC built a major fanbase on its sex appeal and they're not dumb enough to get rid of fanservice because of some blogger complaining about it (looking at MK11).

What do you think?

Yes, it certainly explains why the women dress so f***ING trashy, and why they all conform to traditional beauty standards, which a female warrior honestly SHOULDN'T. Waifish "waifus" using giant swords is TOTALLY f***ing unrealistic.

SCV Ivy was the best default design Ivy ever had. Sexy, stylish and classy all in one. It's too one or the other most other times sadly. Ivy's best alternate outfit are between her SC2 red dress and the SCV gold outfit. Though the SCIII and SCIV alternate outfits were pretty good too. Her SCIV default is absolute s***. Basically just wearing string. I'll take her British red coat and George Washington alts over that trash any day.

Nice. There's a reason why I enjoyed IV and VI the best. I honestly wouldn't even have bought this game if the fanservice was toned down or removed.

Yeah I agree. Much better than SCV design, which I thought was pretty much crap.

Just wearing tags and over sized t*** that don't fit her body. Absolute s***. Her Valkyrie armor is cool tho. Her SCIII costumes are her best.
