Anything relevant to the Tsunami/ Earthquake in Japan can be effected.
Lots of news of games being delayed or completely canceled due to the Tohuku Earthquake. One game effected was the One Piece Unlimited Cruise for 3DS ; it was delayed. Recent news have surfaced that retailers were also told to destroy the DVDs that had promotional footage for the game.
The reason Namco Bandai wanted this was because of a certain character. Shirohige (above)
can cause Earthquakes, and in the promo video his earthquake....causes a tsunami. The coincidence is a bit much. Even after the order to have the DVDs destroyed , Namco Bandai is still promoting the game and recently released a bunch of screenshots you can view here http://www.andriasang.com/e/blog/2011/03/25/one_piece_update/
What do you guys think of all of this? Ofcourse a country would be sensitive after this sort thing, many of games and movies would be altered to keep strong emotions from firing. When would it end though? When Japan is back on its feet? Or will this be something kept in Japanese culture and history as something that would only be enacted in a memorial, while being kept out of mainstream media. Leave your thoughts below, don't be a jimmy.
