When MTV's Multiplayer blog asked Resident Evil 5 cinematic director Jim Sorenzo how much Capcom want to focus on Sheva to appeal to male gamers, Sorenzo said they deliberately wanted to avoid portraying her in a sleazy fashion.
"It was never any agenda or any directive to do that from Capcom. And from my personal taste it was always to just keep it not sleazy and not cheesy. We were both in-sync in keeping her as cool and interesting as a character as possible and not going to the sex vibe in my opinion," said Sorenzo.
