I really liked the old models for the home team and want to be able to use them again, call it nostalgia if you will.
Not gonna happen. The aritst who made the NPC art improved and thus the new style.
Maybe there could be a Gallery with character designs and concept art from the development process as a compromise.
they could give the players the option to switch between the two art styles. the only characters tio be affected could be the ones that had an older art style and not the newer ones.
