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.
