The Big Hate Around Assassin’s Creed Shadows
By ImJustThatKinky • 1 month ago

Well, this is the internet in this day in age. So you most likely can already tell that the hate is coming from somewhere stupid. With the new trailer for Assassin's Creed Shadows dropping, the main TWO protagonists have been shown. One being a female, Japanese assassin, and the other a…BLACK SAMURAI!!!

Yes, Yasuke, a name you might have heard in recent anime, Japanese dramas, and in video games, is now in an Assassin’s Creed game, and people are mad. The main reason people are mad is the fact that Yasuke is a samurai. From some people's point of view, Yasuke was never a samurai, but a retainer to Nobunaga, and that retainers aren’t samurais. But…

Also, I would rather let someone who’s actually a part of that culture explain to us.

People are getting butt hurt that Yasuke is a samurai, which is not historically accurate to the history. Okay cool, but…we’re playing Assassin’s Creed, not reading an actual text book. Assassin’s Creed has historical figures in their games, yes, but those characters aren’t a one for one creation of their actual selves. Da Vinci fucking made assassin tools and the hidden blade for you. My man never did that in real life.

Just read the start of the game.

I don’t want to call random people racist, but what else can you call people with an opinion like this. I honestly can’t see an actual problem with having Yasuke as one of the main characters, and also being a samurai. It’s a video game, not a documentary based on real events. Just let me play as my big black samurai, and have fun.

Wait, that's not Yasuke.

Are you excited for Assassin's Creed Shadows? What do you think about Yasuke? Do you think the drama is stupid? Tell us in the comments.
