The wii had limited hardware, and by result, had oblivion-esque looks. Instead of making them more expressive in the remake, they just pasted an anime face and called it good. It ended up looking less expressive, and lost some of its charm imo.
Some people blame crunch time on the boring unmoving anime faces.
hardcore purity spiraling nerds will hack their switch just to patch in the old "ugly" textures, and take advantage of the updated gameplay.
I really don't mind it eitherway, but it's funny how fans will bitch about anime in their jrpgs.
