It’s being reported this morning that SEGA has been courting controversy in Japan, after releasing a promo T-shirt featuring Hitler for its World War 2 game, Advanced Dai Sen Ryaku.
SEGA is not merely giving these away as promo items either, but even more surprisingly, is selling them. The t-shirt features Hitler alongside Roosevelt, Stalin, Churchill, and Mussolini.
The item is for sale in the company's Japanese online store. If you enjoy shocking everybody that you meet, then you might want to buy one.
Whatever next? SPOnG wonders what the Japanese reaction would be if a western game company were to use pictures of the Hiroshima-busting bomb Enola Gay in its game marketing materials. We suspect there would be an similar reaction to that of SEGA’s use of European genocidal fascists to sell more budget PS2 war games in Japan.
We are not sure. Perhaps we are being overly sensitive, and this T-shirt is actually going to be a must-have E3 item. Though we doubt it.
