Despite of the lack of playable females in 15, Noctis still have some sort of romantic love interest though it is very subtle. That woman is Lunafreya.


In the early stages of the game's development though, There is a girl named Stella, She is has the same role as Lunafreya but her relationship with Noctis is more openly romantic.


Square Enix decided to remove Stella because they decided to remove any open romance on the game because the female players prefers shipping Noctis with male characters.

Weird as it may sound, Majority of Japanese players prefers Noctis with Prompto.


Do you think replacing Stella with Lunafreya a right decision?

I don't care that much about romance in games so I'm fine with the decision to substitute Stella with Lunafreya, ( though why did they change the name ? Lunafreya must have a hidden meaning. I know Luna = moon, at least ).

Actually, I found something while googling about the meanings of the names in FFXV
Some interesting stuff right there.

Cindy is like the normal named person in 15.:D

It is more than a name change because Stella have a bigger role than Lunafreya.

Another reason Stella got removed. You are suppose to kill Stella in a Boss fight. It would have been first time in Final Fantasy History where the hero must kill his love interest.

LunaFreya is also meant to die, she is an oracle and she had seen the future she will die but she didnt die in the hands of Noctis.

Interesting. That makes me think that the real reason for the removal of Stella from the game is possibly because of the "darker" turn the plot took.
BTW, you said Stella was supposed to have the same role as Lunafreya, in the story. However, the wiki says otherwise.

I think Stella from the Final Fantasy 13 game was re-imagined for the Final Fantasy 15 game and became Luna-also they both have similar latin names as well,that involve the sky- Stella which means star in latin and Luna meaning meaning moon.

From the character design point of view Stella was clearly prettier than Luna. I understand for story purposes they scrapped her for Luna but why waste a good character design? They could've just inserted a new personality to Stella. It's a shame because aesthetically Luna doesn't interest me at all.

I think it was Nomura that decided to make Stella more pretty.

Stella and Noctis are suppose to have a Romeo and Juliet tragedy. This is in the trailer of the cancelled version. It has snippets of the Noctis vs Stella fight.

After they decided to replace Stella with Lunafreya, The boss fight is removed.

Footage of the Noctis Stella Fight. The cancelled version of 15 seemed to have Stella as the final boss.

I would go with Lunafreya because of her contribution in adding Noctis with his destiny realization ever since she became an oracle in the game. Also the sad story that followed Luna made me have some kind of compassion for her.

I would have loved to still have the character of Stella in the game because the boss fight with Noctis would have been a crazy fight. You can imagine having to fight your loved one. What I would have also desired would be to have both Stella and Lunafreya feature in the game and both of them fighting for the love and affection of Noctis. How do you see that?

Hmm, that seems pretty interesting. Such thing never occurred to me, if it's possible to achieve that, I would love to have it as well.

A hacker recently data mined Final Fantasy 15 and they found out that Luna Freya originally have a larger role and can be playable. They decided to cancel it. They found a lot of cutscenes and stuff about her. She have a lot of many unused animations.
