Sony have released final box art for their upcoming babe bearing big blade baddie bashing extravaganza.
While heroine Nariko’s face looks different from every piece of pre-release artwork (see horrible example on right) I really think she looks much better with human eyes. It’s also good to see that, while she is typically impractically under-dressed for endless combat and is presented with a weapon she clearly couldn’t wield, she appears to be convincingly proportioned.
It still has to be said that games, like movies, have little idea what to do with female stars. Correct me if I’m wrong but I think only Half-Life 2 has got it completely right with the realistically proportioned, attractive, personable and capable Alyx Vance.
Anyway, here is Heavenly Sword‘s Nariko in all her flame-haired glory.
