And rightly so. Triple A titles having white male cisleads is expected but the way they put it with both games now makes it sound like they added the female character half-assed later on and then cancelled it and made a public apology. Not only salt in the wound for those hoping for more diverse characters, it just makes your company look a little imcompetent too.

I'm not sure if I'll get a WiiU yet. I need more games for my 3DS though.

Normally I'm all 'eww elves' but goddamn she looks cool. Not sure who she is but she's from the upcoming Zelda game too.

Looks like Impa, the usual bodyguard for Princess Zelda who also taught her how to be a cross-dressing ninja.

Ubisoft's statements on the difficulty of animating are just absurd

ECONOMIES OF SCALE: ANIMATING A MAIN CHARACTER WITH A VAGINA WOULD DOUBLE THE EXPENSES OF THE ENTIRE GAME EXPENSE AND PRODUCTION PIPELINE, BECAUSE REASONS

Not gunna lie, feeling pretty good being a Nintendo girl right now. Yayyy sometimes your favorites aren't the biggest disappointment in the room.

(I think this sounds a lot more bitter than intended but I don't know how to fix it.)

The untold part of that story is that it was too expensive. They had three whole teams working on DoA style breast physics for months before they finally gave it up as being beyond their reach.

So women aren't too expensive to animate. Breasts are!

<Sigh>

Because you can't have a female lead character without specific physics dedicated to her breasts. FFS. Objectification is one thing but this just takes the piss.

You may want to check the calibration on your sarcasm detector.

So they could just make breast-less women. There are lots of cool things they could do with that.

Off the top of my head, an older woman who has survived breast cancer in an apocalyptic world. As a serious game and not a joke, that could be awesome.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwww

Whatever, Impa still looks cool as heck.

I don't think the triple A publishing world is ready for a breast cancer survivor. They already have trouble dealing with any cisladies under cup C.

Women actually exist outside the context of thing-to-be-saved and window decoration?!?!?

SHOCKING.
