She’s not in the dancing game or the Q2 game despite being a cut party member. Makes me feel weirdly bad for her character
I-I really needed this~~
Uh yes, I really am vicious! So do not even try me...

Well because in the end she isn't a party member 😂 it doesn't really matter even if she was in early plans

Hifumi is not a "cut party member". Her design is based on the design of a rough concept character who later became Makoto. That's all.
Formerly a panda, formerly a carnivore. Now just a guy without a catch phrase.

The developer said that she was going to be a party member but the story was already too long so they cut her out.

That's probably what I want added most aside from a FeMC.
Maybe somewhere out there even a devil may cry when he loses a loved one. Don't you think?

Incorrect. Per the creator commentary from the game's art book:
When it was decided Makoto would be the brains behind the protagonist's team, we also had plans to add another more radical minded strategist. It was then we first sketched a character who would become similar to Hifumi. We later integrated both ideas into Makoto, but when thinking of Confidant characters, we ended up discussing the possibility of using that original sketch and decided to use it for a completely different character.

Originally, however, Hifumi was planned to be involved in the game’s main scenario, eventually becoming a Phantom Thief herself as part of the main party. In the end, she was changed to just be a Confidant character, because the main scenario was already long at that point and that it would make it even longer.


Your quote about a character who would become similar to Hifumi, doesn’t change that they originally planned for Hifumi to join the phantom thieves

Hifumi is best girl. She is like the hot version of Yukiko.
