Resident Evil 5
producer Jun Takeuchi tells Kotaku
that calls of racial insensitivity
haven't affected the game's design. Takeuchi tells the site that the team didn't "set out" to make a racist or political statement and he feels there was a misunderstanding
about the initial trailer.
Takeuchi says there are Arab and Caucasian targets for Chris Redfield's bullets in RE5
and insists they were always going to be included in the game -- despite the initial trailer
showing a less ethnically diverse group of zombies. We'll have to take a "wait and see" approach on whether Japanese developers will continue to fuel the fires of black/white racial tensions across the ocean.
