This is Josie Rizal. The recently revealed character is Tekken's first Filipino character. For some, she's not Filipino enough—or rather, Filipino at all.
Is it just me or have Fighting characters seemed to have been scrutinised to hell recently.
Not recently. Always. The women are too scantily dressed or have boobs that are too big or their body shape isn't conducive to fighting. Almost nothing is ever said about the male fighters pulling a Potemkin. http://www.fightersgenerati...
"or have boobs that are too big or their body shape isn't conducive to fighting" I guess Gina never got that memo... http://www.hollywoodreporte...
Talk about people complaining for nothing. "OMG this game isn't like real world and it's tone is slightly wrong.. I must raise racial questions all the time"
Why cant people understand this. Why cant they seperate videos games from reality. How many times have i've walked down the street then suddenly see a girl with "Gargantuan" boobs and in scantly, revealing outfit fighting a guy with damn wings and hair that defies grafity? NEVER!
Don't forget the eye lasers.
I bet most of the people complaining don't even play fighting games.
And lo, #ChangeTheFighter was born.
Please don't listen to our National Commission for Culture and the Arts they are stupid in so many levels.
So how do you design a character with Filipino-ness? Unless she starts every fight by chowing down on a bowl of pancit it's hard to set her apart from the rest of the characters.
They want her to have Escrima sticks and speak in a Filipino way by saying things like Aray (which supposedly means ouch) when hit. It's the embodiment of being nitpicky. I mean, it's not like Japanese developers went out of their way to create a character after a Filipino hero (also gender swapping said hero, #WhyCantLinkBeAGirl), and even designed her look around the Philippines National Colours. No, they totally faked a Filipino character because she doesn't use traditional weapons in her traditional Filipino Martial Art style or speak Filipino to the satisfaction of some. She's such a phoney character.
Maybe they want Pacquiao's face on a female body.
Keep up with the quality work, kotaku. This is really a legitimate claim, likely based on a half dozen "fans" concern trolling.
Actually, the article really only mentions 2 people and apparently one of them is going to try and use government pressure to make changes to the character.
It's an april fools joke if you actually read the quotes
I think you're hoping it's an April Fools joke, there's nothing in the quotes that suggests it is. Plus, this is Kraptaku, it's not beyond them to report on nonsense like this.
Took one look at the headline and knew this was kotaku. Downvote the site and move on.
Because people need to grow the fuck up.
Jeez, where was this criticism when Chistie showed up. Gateway MT6706 2008
lol why some people complain about her look not being not a filipino at all? at this age/era you cant just tell people of their nationality just by how he/she look like. if you've been to the philippines you could hardly tell if shes from asean,china, korea or japan you'll even see mestiza, african and latina looks too.
