Soulcalibur 6 in Development Hell Due to Arguments Over How Big Ivy’s Breasts Should Be

The developers at Namco’s Project Soul division have allegedly been arguing over the past seven months about how big Ivy’s breasts should be which is causing the development of Soulcalibur 6 to be repeatedly delayed.headlessandstillsexyWhile Namco has declined to make any public statement in regards to these rumors, Soulcalibur V director Daishi Odashima recently spoke in an interview with Dengeki about development problems during Soulcalibur V caused by Ivy’s appearance and how it started all the way back during Soulcalibur IV.

“While working on the fourth game, people were starting to wonder if we were pushing it with how big we were making Ivy’s breasts,” explained Odashima, “As I had known in advance that I would be the director of the fifth game, I decided to secretly make the decision to have the game take place many years after the fourth one. I figured no one would want to see an old Ivy. Little did I know that many staff members at Project Soul really enjoyed seeing Ivy’s breasts.”

“I was forced to concede and so the team added a youthful Ivy back into the roster and we were back at square one,” continued Odashima, “Then the arguments started again. It was about a half and half split this time with some wanting to cover her up and some just wanting her almost naked. I said that we should maintain some level of realism but that didn’t deter people from wanting her breasts to be even bigger than before. After three months, we came to a solid consensus on her appearance. Now I find myself embroiled in an even bigger argument.”

“I feel that some members of Project Soul are burnt out from solely working on the Soulcalibur games,” theorized Odashima, “I have a hunch that some staff members only stay so they can work on the physics for Ivy’s breasts. Some even work overtime on her character model even if they are not part of the character design team. Rarely can we focus on the battle mechanics or the blocking system without some member pointing out that it might impact how Ivy will move. I should just put my foot down and get rid of her as a character altogether but then a lot of our staff would probably quit.”

“In a poll asking players what they thought of Soulcalibur V, many chose to skip the game altogether after learning that Taki would not appear in the game. It was the top reason players chose not to buy the game with the second being that Sophitia would not appear in the game.

    Hey, I bet the team wont see this, but honestly it’s silly to fight over whether you want Ivy to have godvilla boobs or not. I just want another game out.
    Anyways my suggestion.
    Make both sides happy, In the game you always have 2 types of the character, Make one Ivy (Same body, Same Boobs, But with more clothing) Second ivy (Bigger boobs and more slutty) Make both sides happy & Bring back more older characters. I Love some of the new, but i miss Amy :(
    I don’t wanna see you lose some of your team over boobs, it’s just stupid.

    Are you that dum why don’t you just have an option on how big or tiny her breasts should be or just have people vote and the Winning votes will conclude your argument

    I miss Talim, she was my fave. At least they could have created a new character with the elbow blades or give us an adult Talim, since she was the youngest in the series. Don’t care about her story, SoulCalibur lost something when they dropped her. ?

    Who gives a hoot about Ivy, she isn’t even the most important person on SC

  7. Nick says:

    It’s a wonder how Namco ever gets anything done.

  8. scumbag says:

    u better not take her out of the game and its simple just do like “jj” said make a boob slider that maximizes and lowers the breast size like in five so u can come to an conclusion and like “Anonymous” said they shold be big enough so that u can titty “F” her

    nobody cares about what characters look like, we care about features and especially SC2 and 3 features being back in, if this is such a problem then screw it all, forget about calibur and just make soul edge/blade II instead.

    Wait… people actually think SCV has better mechanics than 4? 75% of the game is spent hitting a defenseless player or being hit while you’re defenseless. You only need about 3 to 5 moves to be effective, one that nocks them down, one that keeps them down, and a running move. Add two more that you like just for shits and giggles. Defense is pointless and is virtually nonexistent and the single player AI is the worst I have ever seen. SC4 took skill to play, 5 is nothing more than button mashing and spamming the same moves over and over and… as for Ivy, just make her chest a large c cup or something and get back to work on fixing that f’d up game people are calling a fighter. Seriously…

    I hope 6 won’t have that one character story line crap like 5 did and I hope they bring in all the characters we know and love as well as giving us better outfits in character creation and I hope they give us more options in character creation.
