Just hours ahead of its Tokyo Game Show (TGS) 2020 Xbox presentation, the official Xbox Japan Twitter account has revealed a special Xbox-themed anime girl mascot.
Trying to conquer the weirdo Japanese Market
That is some pretty pathetic pandering.
You people don't half nit pick at anything to do with Xbox.
What does that mean?
It means “wow look at MS trying to sell their products in Japan using Japanese culture to market to a Japanese audience. Pathetic.” Um okay lol....
Japanese marketing?.. This whole thing borders on racist. They may as well have put super happy fun time Xbox on the ad.
Racist? For making an anime mascot at the Tokyo gameshow? Alright.. Yes marketing, it’s a game show in Japan lol. To pander you have to give people what they want. Which is it, offensive or pandering?
@The_Sage LOL the Japanese are one of the most racist people on the planet. My friends grand mom traced her finance's family tree back 500 years to block their marriage because he had members of the Japanese slave class in his family history lol. And this is not uncommon.
@The_Sage Anime is racist, huh? I didn't know bringing out Japan's most popular culture thing is racist to Japanese people. I'm glad they didn't go with a ramen bowl, that would've been overwhelmingly offensive, am I right? Look at the replies to the tweet from Japanese people, they all seem extremely infuriated with this too.
It's like a Chinese guy going to Italy to sell rice, but putting the fat Italian guy holding a pizza box on the sign.
The country who built a full sized gundam robot might be offended by the Xbox anime girl 😂
It’s marketing. Sony does it in the US and Europe all the time.
Xbox is like "Please notice me senpai!". Pitiful.
In that case why is Sony allowed to market to Americans? They’re a Japanese company. Grow up.
Yes but at least Sony didn't make a McDonals mascot for american did they? Xbox just smells desperation all around. I think you are the one who needs to grow up.
@zero yea yea jus like you guys praise Sony for selling 2-1 that only matters if your a shareholder 🤦🏾♂️ But that’s all y’all ever say
It's more than that in Japan. But it really does matter - purely from the standpoint of 3rd parties willing to put their games on your platform 1st. It's actually very important.
If you ever hear them say that again, just correct them - tell them it's more like 3-1..
She looks like she could be in Overwatch.
I was thinking alone the lines of Jet Set Radio. Interesting nevertheless.
And I bet she's already been lewded. Lol... There is only one known thing in the universe faster than light and that's the speed of a porn artist.
Cute. It seems MS/XB is trying again to latch on to the Japanese market. Let's see if they finally give MS/XB a chance in the future for next-gen.
Marks for trying, I guess...
It looks like an Xbox version anime.
Rule 34 a GO GO BABY!
Makes sense to me lol. It’s the Tokyo game show.
They can't even hire a decent artist lol
Wow! Comments about this are toxic AF. Its nice to see xbox still put effort into a market region thats almost non existent in there.
Wonder what she'd be like as a blond haired neko
Amicrosoft, F#@k yeah! Comin' again to save the muthaf#@kin day, yeah.
You guys seriously want xbox to fail that bad? Just because it had average Microsoft games last gen compared to Sony? Like, really? You hate them that bad?
