Catwoman Re-imagined

[Source: Yahoo!News] Final Fantasy character designer Tetsuya Nomura revealed his dramatic take on DC Comics' Batman earlier this year. He re-imagined the Dark Knight as a heavily armored terror, all spikes, sharp edges and clawed batwings. Now it's time for Nomura's interpretation of Catwoman for Square Enix's Variant Play Arts Kai line of toys.

As one would expect, Nomura takes Catwoman's design cues and pushes them to extremes. She's bedecked in inexplicable buckles, garter belts and chunks of armor that seem to leave some of her more vulnerable areas openly exposed.

No word yet on when we'll see Catwoman's Variant Play Arts Kai become available, but Square Enix will likely shed a bit more light on the latest DC Comics and Tetsuya Nomura collaboration at this week's New York Comic Con.

Tetsuya Nomura is currently directing Kingdom Hearts 3 for Square Enix. He's no longer co-directing Final Fantasy 15.
