Capcom have accidentally create an action game that women love.

The reasons are very easy to understand. The characters are truly manly man, and not your typical egotistic man on steroid, or your typical emo femine men.

The characters are virtuous, courageous, aggressive, and while at the same time, passionate and full of compassion. They're very powerful (almost God-like in the game) and women needs that kind of protection. They have drive and they strive for their ambitions. They are natural leaders who can pursue and command thousands of other man into battles.

They are the very definition of the type of man woman secretly wants, but never admits to. This is why woman love this game so much, it's because they love the characters, not the gameplay. It's also why they love the anime version so much too.

And story is also important because women "love" to read(not "text only" gameplay, in general, women love to read!).
