But we heard you, loud and clear. We agreed, she should be closer to her original Sakura concept. So XRayAlpha and JesterCapp busted their asses and made time to make this a reality. They, and us as a team, felt like there were more things we could do to make this work.

I feel like they totally nailed it out of the park.

Nicely done.

Oh how I wish Sun Goddess and the Traditional skin to have the dress 'feeling' that now Sakura has >.<

It looks so much better and so much more...Karma! Long dresses for Karma! <3

Imagine Sun Goddess with that gorgeous yellow and green dress in the same format as Sakura!

Dem feels and wants! :B

EDIT: Thanks so much for fixing Sakura! It's AMAZING!

I don't even play karma, so this doesn't directly affect me, but I really like the way this was handled and responded to, so +1 RIOT. Keep up the good work.

And yes, I think the majority of us understand that we were lucky this was finished as fast as it was.

Hey guys,

really glad to hear initial reactions are good! This version of the Sakura skin is much closer to the design IronStylus originally concepted for the rework, and I'm glad we were able to deliver it to you. There were some rigging and animation challenges, but I think this solution works pretty well with the new animation set. If you have additional feedback, we're always around to listen.

Side note: "nailed it out of the park" is now my favorite mixed metaphor.
