Why isn't Vincent in this game?

Vincent Valentine isn't a small time character.
He got his own game for crying out loud - Dirge of Cerberus
I like Tifa being in the game, but I mean...
Tifa doesn't have her own game, comparing with Vicent, he seems more important than Tifa.

Tifa's Chest>Vincent seems to be the biggest reason.

Yes, watched all the anime too. Tifa is vital. But I'm talking about game wise.
Tifa was in games, but not the major protagonist.
And even if people nerf the argument about Vincent, he's still nonetheless equally important as Tifa. So why isn't he in the game? It's not like they can't add an extra character to unlock.

New characters were chosen based on three things: popularity, uniqueness, and drama.

Popularity: Tifa beats Vincent bad in this category. In Japan, the only FF characters that are more popular than Tifa are Cloud and Yuna.

Uniqueness: They both had a touch of uniqueness to them. Tifa is made less unique by Prishe, and Vincent is made less unique by Laguna. That being said, Laguna is featured a lot more than Prishe in this game.

Drama: Both of them could provide plenty of drama. However, it's difficult to determine which one would provide more.


That being said, the director said he wouldn't make this game unless Tifa was added, so she's in for a similar reason that Kain is in.

That's probably why he isn't in this game. Dirge isn't exactly a popular game

I completed FF7 without even discovering Vincent. Only after I was told there's a 'secret' character did I go back to get him, then never used him .

Wanting Vincent in Dissidia over Tifa is like wanting Khimari over Yuna. Both Khimari and Vincent have one slightly important scene in their entire game, and they're both furries.

Probably.

We're at an impasse here. Maybe we should compromise?

FFVII's furry is Red XIII, not Vincent.

There can be two.

Or more.
