    Let's get the record straight. Here are the relevant tweets:

    https://twitter.com/RagnarTornquist/...26823912599552
    https://twitter.com/RagnarTornquist/...28384629891073
    https://twitter.com/RagnarTornquist/...47274885935105
    https://twitter.com/RagnarTornquist/...48243514277889
    https://twitter.com/RagnarTornquist/...48363760779266

    Here is what was said:

    Q: "Will there be several protagonists?"
    A: "Yes."
    Q: "Will there be female protagonists?"
    A: "Two out of three protagonists will be female."
    Q: "Will the two female protagonists be April and Zoe?"
    A: "No, not both of them at the same time."
    Q: "Have any of the three protagonists been introduced in TLJ or Dreamfall?"
    A: "Yes, two of them have already appeared in the series."

    This opens up following possibilities:

    - Protagonist 1 (P1) can be either April, a new heroine (NF: a female character introduced in Chapters for the first time), or an old heroine (OF: a female character from an earlier game who is promoted to player character in Chapters).
    - Protagonist 2 (P2) can be either Zoe, a new heroine, or an old heroine.
    - Protagonist 3 (P3) can be either a new hero (NM: a male character introduced in Chapters for the first time), or an old hero (OM: a male character from an earlier game).
    - OF can be several characters, such as Emma, Na'ane, etc.
    - OM is most likely Kian, though possibly also Brian Westhouse, Charlie, etc.

    With that in mind, following combinations can be ruled out:

    - Any girl + Any girl + A new guy: Because Tornquist already promised a "new heroine", so the guy is definitely from a previous game.
    - April + Zoe + Any guy: Because they are not to be co-protagonists again.

    Which leaves us with following possibilities:

    - April + "The new heroine" + An old guy (Kian, Brian, Charlie, etc.)
    - Zoe + "The new heroine" + An old guy (Kian, Brian, Charlie, etc.)
    - "The new heroine" + An old heroine + An old guy (Kian, Brian, Charlie, etc.)

    The last option is still possible (if unlikely), because Tornquist never explicitly promised we will have either April or Zoe so they both might not be playable at all.

    I think that is actually a mistake on Wandrew's part. The first paragraph of the article states
    "Dreamfall Chapters, the long awaited sequel to the 2006 adventure game Dreamfall, will feature three playable characters whose stories will intertwine throughout the game, including two female protagonists who are yet to be revealed, Red Thread Studios founder Ragnar Tornquist told Polygon in a recent interview." (My emphasis)
    What the article does confirm is that Zoë will be in the game.
    April Ryan is my friend,
    Every sorrow she can mend.
    When i visit her dark realm,
    Does it simply overwhelm.

    I don't think I actually said that. Ragnar said there will be 3 playables. 1 will be new, the other 2 WON'T be a pair including April and Zoe. This means that at most it will be April OR Zoe.

    I think April will be playable. Zoe will be there, but just not playable.

    Agree on the second, hoping for the first
    And it looks like there's no way to avoid Kian. Again. (sigh)

    Hopefully he's better characterised this time around. I don't think he's a bad character, he just didn't get a lot of screen time in DF (and most of what he did get was combat, and the combat system was the weakest part of the game).

    Quoted for truth. I actually liked Kian and was sad that he got even less screen time than April.

    I'm probably counter-sexist here, but male characters with such a massive amount of indecision annoy the hell out of me. OK, he's got the excuse of being very young and faced with a rather complicated issue, I admit that much. And if he'll be able to transcend it in Chapters, I'll even applaud. But that's a long, long way...

    DF was all about indecision. Just look at Zoe.

    Yeah, but Zoe is a girl, so that makes it OK. Since we are on the topic of sexism and counter-sexism.

    What could this "little surprise" be?
