Ni No Kuni 2 : Hair and cloth..Simulated or Animated?


Hi guys,

So I’m trying to make a building a game character for my 3d game animation reel and I was very interested with the art style and animation of Ni No Kuni 2:

The question is do you think the cloth and hair in this game are simulated or hand keyed?
If so, can you share with me links or articles I might need to read to learn more about how to get the same similar animation?

Thank you so much!


The cloth would be simulated with a cloth system, the hair can be simulated with some kind of flex system, so not really as complicated as cloth.
