Final Fantasy XV’s all-male cast makes it “more approachable”

Speaking with GamespotFinal Fantasy XV Director Hajime Tabata said the game’s all-male cast exists for a reason.

“Speaking honestly, an all-male party feels almost more approachable for players,” he said.

“Even the presence of one female in the group will change their behaviour, so that they’ll act differently,” Tabata continued. “So to give the most natural feeling, to make them feel sincere and honest, having them all the same gender made sense in that way.”

Tabata also added the game will have a “boys will be boys” theme.

“It was the story we wanted to tell and what we wanted to show players.”
