Diablo 3: Female monk is a yes

Here’s a short excerpt from the full interview:

In the character selection screen, the female Monk is not available. Is that just because she’s not finished yet, the female? There will be a female monk?

Leo: That’s right.

Kevin: All of our classes will have gender choices.

I’m pretty intrigued on how the female monk will look. The first character I thought of, as a female monk, is Ryunmei from Dungeon and Fighters.

How will your ideal female monk look like ?

Also, here’s a recent speech given by the big daddy of Diablo 3, Jay Wilson. He was speaking in Taiwan, at the Digital Taipei 2009 conference.


Update:
According to Blizzard, the design for the female monk has officially been completed, its not going through some finishing touches.
