Nomura said there WILL be females in the game (From Dengeki magazine)

According to the user Raven777 from NeoGAF


-Cor's VA was actually the driver from 2011 trailer who says "Noctis oouji!" They changed driver's VA because now he voices Cor.

-there are a lot of male characters but Nomura says there will be females so don't worry about it. (not about party member, but in the game)

-there will be limitation for Noct's warp in the battle. In the video they only showed short warp but there is also a long warp which they will talk about later.

-there is huge area to move around and thats why it took so long to develop.They were thinking of shrinking down the size or scale but they decided to keep the scale. Considering the game' release timing it will be difficult to complete the whole story in one game.


Good news, they are not going to decrease the size of the world. Relatively not so good news, the whole story doesn't end in just FFXV. I hope at least it has some conclusion and not a cliffhanger.

Edit:

Apparently there's more.

By user Jubern.


New info:

- With the timeframe they're considering for the release of the game, it'll be hard to wrap up the story with the first game;
- Cor and the driver from the 2011 trailer are different characters, the voice actor has changed for the later (he was previously also voiced by Hiroki Tochi);
- Warp is a Noct-only ability. We saw examples of its "short" version in the latest trailer, but expect some footage of a "long" warp;
- There are a lot of male characters, but expect some females ones too besides Stella and the black-haired girl. Expect much more characters than the ones we saw in the latest trailer;
- Cor joins later, first party is Noct and the three other dudes;
- They want to find an use for the different console-specific gimmicks such as the PS4 share button;
- Concept of asymmetry between the main characters and the Nifleheim ones, who wear white.

HOLY COW STOP THE PRESSES THERE WILL BE FEMALES IN A FF GAME. Not a surprise really too bad they won't have a large role.

"not about party member, but in the game"

Yeah, that changes a whole lot of things. /sarcasm
If anything, this is even worse, because now we have full confirmation that a female character won't be playable.

If you have wondered around this board for some time, you would know that at this point, some word of confirmation that there are girls in FFXV is encouraging to an extent, due to what we have seen thus far. Still no guarantee about playable female party member, but anything can happen.

Eh, I wouldn't say full confirmation. The information is said about female characters that would be part of the story in FFXV, but not necessarily mean they won't be playable. In fact, the probability of having a female party member now IS higher if there are confirmed to be ladies in the game.

Hmm
Seems I've read that wrong.

Though, with the way things are going, chances are we seriously won't have a playable female.

Not really, though TGS is pretty much a lock.

Updated OP by the way.
