Who the crack cares if there aren't any male Asians in FFXIII. FFVII gave you Tseng. What more do you want? Be happy for what you have.

No. Official art is what determines their ethinicty. At least it does to me.

I totally agree with the OP. Final Fantasy needs more ethnic diversity.
Especially in the curvy black females area. Seriously we've had enough androgynous pretty boys already.

I'm not sure if you can consider this black, but she seems to be playable. She looks fucking weird, though.

Hell no. Having a Chinese name and knowing martial arts doesn't make you Chinese.

I like to think of those characters as sort of an artistic fusion of the best white/japanese phenotypes.

Technically no because there is no Asia in Final Fantasy. However we can say that Yuffie looks Asian because she does in fact look Asian. The term Asian here is used as an adjective to describe her looks rather that her race if than makes any sense.

Anyway still stand by my previous comment in that I wish to see a wider range of races in Final Fantasy games. I certainly hope that Sazh is not the only black person in the game (that would just look weird) and that the more characters of varied races as well.

I'd say Fran was kind of a black chick. I mean the best cosplay for Fran would be a black chick (the right black chick). Donna looked more Puerto Rican/Hispanic to me then black.

African women are GORGEOUS ;o;
SE needs to add a girl like Sheva to FF13 plx <3


Also i'd love a pure asian man, not another white+asian hybrid like they always have ):
Asian men and Dark skinned women are beautiful ;n;

Yes African women are very pretty. I think the closest SE has come to such is with Fran and I thought Fran was gorgeous.

If SE is going to start thinking about diffren colours then they shouldn't just put one black male/female but let there be more of them, like in RE5, they didnt just put Sheva in there, they put a whole country full of black people for your enjoyment

I like ethnic diversity in my games it's awesome to see all these races come together. But only if they aren't stereotypes. If they are just going to give us a stereotypical African American or stereotypical Hispanic, I rather not see an ethnic character then.

Now Square's The Last Remnant had characters of bunch of different races and they pulled it off quite well IMO. So I don't know why they don't add more color to the FF series...
