I'm excited to see Final Fantasy XVI announced. It will probably be medieval fantasy or something new.
I don't think Japanese developers care about that stuff.
They care, within reason. FFXIV got flack from South Korean players for being involved in a pride parade (South Korea tends to be very homophobic). The response from Yoshi-P was basically the polite version of "tough shit".
That being said, they aren't about the uberwoke "everything is racist everything is sexist" element. The Japanese tend to make great female characters (heck FFXIV is full of them, Ysayle, Yotsuyu, Alisae, Y'shtola) in addition to fanservicey waifus.
