A story trailer for the new Respawn Star Wars game, Jedi: Fallen Order, just dropped:
Looks like they are playing ‘safe’ with the main character design. I’m sure the actor is very talented, but the character looks like a High School Space-Quarterback from Space-Nebraska. I was hoping for better representation tbh. Or you know, they could have gone with one of the thousands of sentient alien species! Canon hero Jedi Rodian?? The mentor at least is a female POC (10 bucks she will be fridged), as is the main antagonist.
Naturally the comments on the Kotaku article are already full of Alt-White types defending the choice and insulting trans people.
Not much to say about the story really, I think it’s pretty much what everyone expected. Another Jedi survived the purge. At this point, it feels like there are more Jedi after the purge than before it!
I’m curious about the game, but kind of disappointed with the character design so far. Looking forward to seeing some gameplay. Supposedly it’s single-player only, no microtransactions, and built on UE4.
EDIT: Oh, I didn’t notice he was ginger until just now. That also makes the Archie comment below even better! His hair looked blonde or brown to me initially. As a ginger myself that’s a little neat, but it still is no replacement for actual representation.
