*While commonly referred to as male, It has been stated by Motiga that Tyto’s actual gender is to remain unknown.
**There’s actually another male character, but he’s currently getting a design overhaul, and as such I felt there was no need to include him.
Now that part of the NDA is lifted, I can feel comfortable showing the male/female character lineup for the new currently in beta MOBA, Gigantic.
While yes, the males do seem to have more of the monstrous selection, and yes, some of the females don’t have the best of attire into battle, I have to note that really I don’t get the “Look at these SeXy GiRlS!” feeling that I do from a lot of other games. Not to mention that several of the male characters also don’t necessarily have the best attire to dive into battle with as well.
Even with their characters like Xenobia, there doesn’t seem to be a major focus on the fact that she has a cleavage window, and that is even with them using her in their promotional art.
But of course, the game is still in closed beta and things can and likely will change before the game actually goes live. Here’s to hoping we get more monster-y female heroes in the future!
Another important aspect about this game is this is their line-up on their web site, to let you know what heroes are available:
Even using just portraits there’s a lot more diversity in the female body types and personalities than we are used to seeing. I mean compare it to Vainglory’s promotional line up:
And they’re not even the worst example, not by far.
Each one of the ladies in Gigantic looks like she’s got a story and personality and it’s going to be different and not be lampshading to justify sexy costumes. I like that, I like that a lot.
Please do update us when/if they add the monster lady (or ideally, ladies).
edit: Minor change to how characters are placed on the graphic, so that they appear bigger on dashboards.
