All I hear about lately is "where are the female playable characters?" or "we want female playable characters." Tetsuya Nomura himself said in a recent interview said that playable females would be "difficult"... So my question is... do YOU want to see more female characters?

Me personally, I did at first; until a friend of mine convinced me that Noctis and co. were designed to be like a japanese mafia... and then I asked myself this: "Did Nomura purposely not make female playable chracters?"

Perhaps there is an explanation in the story why there is an apparent lack in females. If so, I hope Nomura doesnt change his original idea of the game too much becuase of the complaints about the lack of female characters. So if it can't be helped, it can't be helped. I want at least Stella playable, but if she's not... then that's fine too.

It's also worth noting that Nomura said you would be using the car alot. Most cars can fit up to 5 people, and there are 5 playable characters so far.

We'll see i guess. Only time will tell.

You've pretty much nailed all the key points, Juma.

The Yakuza, which Noctis's family is based upon, is a male-only organization. That alone throws up a roadblock for a female party member early on.

That, coupled with story points that Nomura cannot divulge yet and the car fitting up to five people, makes it difficult.

He'd never spoil an important development in the story, so if something happens to a party member, Stella just may be able to fill in for him later. I'd like Stella to be playable as much as the next guy, but if the story can't function because of that, then it's absolutely no problem.

While I wouldn't want the game's roster to be a complete sausage-fest, it's really a minor point overall. What matters in the end is that the story is good, flows well, and keeps the player engaged in the world Nomura and co. are trying to create. As much as I'd love to see at least one girl be a party member, I can just as easily live without it.
