I don't know about you, but I don't know who the Commander Shepard that's been on the box art and featured in numerous trailers for Mass Effect throughout the years as I only know one Commander Shepard and she has been kicking all sorts of alien butt for quite a long time. It looks as though female Shepard will finally be getting the recognition she deserves, that is, if you pick up the Collector's Edition of Mass Effect 3.

"FemShep" as she's lovingly known throughout the Internet will share the spotlight with "MaleShep" as they'll both be prominently featured on the cover of the collector's edition of Mass Effect 3 thanks to confirmation from BioWare's Director of Marketing, David Silverman, by way of Twitter. Silverman also confirmed FemShep will be getting an official trailer of her own, although the BioWare team is currently working on what her look might be as FemShep has been known to have many, many faces.

This wasn't a necessary move on BioWare's part, but it just goes to show how much the team is listening to their fans, especially those of us who have been playing with the more superior Shepard for years now. And seeing as how the collector's edition is only $10 more, I foresee a lot of happy FemShep fans.
