I'm a girl, so I just prefer having the option to play as a female protagonist...

It wouldnt make sense with the information we have that is out so far. Now gender swapping Joker for P5R? Eh. Dont care either way.

As far as overall I wouldnt care either. Gender matters little. The writing and gameplay matter most.
Relearning compassion. Yes, it is a thing.

Do we even know for sure if she is a female mc? What if we're all completely off base? Odd's are she's more like Marie from Persona 4: The Golden, an extra character.

She doesn't really have the look of an "extra" character that you usually see in Persona expansions/spinoffs. Most of those usually have flashy or stand-out clothing or features. The new girl looks more "neutral" in appearance, which seems fairly fitting for a protagonist of some kind.

Point taken. But I'd like to be sure, you know? I'm buying this either way, just like I've bought everything else in the series.

I dont care, whatever the reason is, Im not going to buy another version of Persona 5 just so I can play with a female Main Character. This should be a patch for the OG PS3 and PS4 versions, not a full game.

Well, we'll probably have a better idea next month, unless that turns out to be another teaser for a teaser for a teaser...

That said, we'll probably have a better idea if the current Smash Bros. speculation tied to the character pans out.

I'll turn that on it's head.

Why are people obsessed with not having a female MC?

Because it's obvious that the writers prefer male MCs and it's better they write to their strengths?

I think its because the Female Route in Persona 3 fixed a lot of issues and greatly improved the game, according to me and many others
