Assassin's Creed 'fans' try to get Shadows cancelled

Idiots demand cancellation of Assassin’s Creed Shadows

A section of Assassin’s Creed fans still whine about the cultural accuracy of Assassin’s Creed Shadowsand are now asking for its cancellation.

Since Assassin’s Creed Shadows when it was first shown, it created a huge amount of hype, especially since it is set in feudal Japan, a location that fans have been dreaming of for years.

Check out the gameplay for Assassin’s Creed Shadows below.

Unfortunately, while the majority are looking forward to Ubisoft’s next open-world adventure, there is an alarming number of other ‘fans’ calling for its cancellation and criticizing its historical accuracy.

Most of the hate stems from the fact that one of the main characters in the game is a black samurai: a real historical figure named Yasuke.

A petition has now been started calling on Ubisoft to cancel the game altogether, as the game does not accurately depict what samurai actually looked like.

The petition states: “Recently, the lack of historical accuracy and cultural respect has been a serious issue regarding the upcoming match. Assassin’s Creed Shadows by game developer Ubisoft. The game is based on Japanese samurai and ignores the fact that samurai were a higher class of warriors and should have been ‘gokenin’ or servants of nobles.”

It went on to say that the game “is a serious insult to Japanese culture and history, and may also be linked to Asian racism. We call on Ubisoft to cancel the release of Assassin’s Creed Shadows and show sincere research and respect for Japanese history and culture.”

Will Ubisoft listen to the outcry and cancel the game? Assassin’s Creed Shadows? Absolutely not. Will it still sell well despite a bunch of man babies complaining about it? Absolutely.

Ultimately, it is a video game and while historical accuracy is well and good, sometimes there has to be a little levity thrown in to keep the game both entertaining and appealing to people who may not know or care about that historical element.

Assassin’s Creed Shadows will release later this year on November 12th for Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC, no matter how much people complain about it.
