Contemplating the best way that Tifa Lockhart fights in Ultimate Fantasy 7, it is unusual that the character hasn’t seen too many outings among the many combating recreation circuit, in contrast to Cloud and Sephiroth who at the moment are in Smash Final. Nonetheless, one fan has determined to amend this oversite with a brand new mod that turns Tifa into an unofficial visitor fighter in Tekken 7.
The modder Wolfe, who has labored with Tekken 7 mods earlier than, not solely included Tifa, but additionally included a model new stage impressed by Ultimate Fantasy 7 to go together with the brand new fighter. So as to add to the experience of the mod, the character mannequin wasn’t merely ported from one recreation to a different, as it might appear that the mannequin has truly been particularly constructed with a view to match into the Tekken artwork model.
On the subject of porting Tifa into the sport, the mod is definitely a substitute for the Tekken 7 character Josie, whose transfer set works easily to emulate the brand new mannequin. It at present comes with Tifa’s attire from Ultimate Fantasy 7: Remake, her flashback cowgirl out, and her garments from Introduction Kids as alternate costumes, nonetheless the Unique Gown is at present nonetheless in growth. The completely different outfits typically run into physics and clipping points on the time of this writing, however Wolfe is continuous to assist the mod and has said in hooked up notes and feedback that fixes are coming quickly.
Coming alongside the inclusion of Tifa is one other substitute mod that swaps the background of the G Corp Helipad stage for a backdrop of Ultimate Fantasy 7 Remake‘s Midgar, with the Shinra Tower overlooking the combat. This new location comes with an evening and day perform and works completely with the brand new fighter, who blends in even higher with a stage constructed round her personal recreation. The results of pulling each Tifa and Midgar into Tekken 7 collectively does so much to make the mod have the appear and feel of an official addition to the sport, although it is actually the work of a gifted fan.
Wanting on the impact that the mod creates, it is a surprise that Tifa hasn’t been included in additional combating titles as a visitor fighter earlier than, outdoors of Dissidia and Ehrgeiz at the very least. No less than modders like Wolfe are capable of present followers who need extra Tifa content material across the combating recreation neighborhood with such a detailed approximation of how the character would behave in a title like Tekken 7. Then, hopefully, some headway between builders might see a crossover convey extra Ultimate Fantasy fighters into extra video games because the collection continues.
