The whirlwind of Capcom hacking has never stopped; 4chan and foreign online forums have seen more information output from Capcom. This time, it is a measure to avoid controversial issues, including gender, race, ethnicity and other issues.
Please note that there is no official confirmation of the correctness of this document posted on the Internet forum. Use as a reference.
In a report, it was noted that Capcom’s international popularity has increased rapidly with the importance of political correctness (political, social justice, neutral words or expressions), including related social events (here in the US Take Black Lives Matter as an example) of different types of players. given the growing number of things that need to be taken into account when launching continuous growth and marketing promotion, a reference specification is formulated.
LGBTQ instructions included …
■ Women can also play a leading role, making men not particularly strong, but women are weak and limited to protecting the role of location.
■ LGBTQ is the same as other roles.
■ There are LGBTQ roles (here the official specifies otherwise, it should be noted that some countries with deep roots in Catholicism can be excluded)
■ Work with GLAAD (Homosexuality Anti-Defamation Alliance) to confirm appropriate performance techniques.
Capcom uses “The Last of Us” and “Tomb Raider” as good examples of women; negative examples are “The Legend of Zelda” Link and Princess Zelda, “Super Mario” and so on. She was rescued by Princess Brigitte.
Arrange a reference to avoid controversial issues in this document
■ Avoid acting against a particular ethnic group, gender, and race, and use roles to provide diversity and choice (e.g., ponytail hairstyles are not exclusive to female actors, they can also be chosen by male actors).
■ All creatures in the game world are the same, no specific race is strong or weak.
■ Equipment of different genders has the same level of exposure (avoid covering the body of men, but women are particularly naked, so they should show similar places together).
■ Naked, explicit or obscene sexual words or jokes.
■ Avoid using stereotypes. For example, blacks are on a par with hip-hop, Italians eat pizza and Russians drink vodka.
■ Do not attempt to use specific negative words and phrases that refer to a specific culture or narrow cultural elements (e.g., the United States is the State of Freedom).
■ Techniques for expressing cultural and international colors, including necessary preliminary research, and interpretations based on modern knowledge.
■ Avoid using too many religious symbols, even though they are usually used for Christmas, Easter, etc., should be presented in a more neutral way (e.g., Christmas is changed to a happy holiday).
■ All symbols and gestures representing the Nazis, including certain abbreviations, are forbidden.
■ When using specific cultural or religious content, you should confirm with your local distributor (for example, when the pig needs to be localized in Arabic).
For large multinational companies like Capcom, they need to be cautious when using related topics and marketing materials. However, after the hack, the company’s documents circulated only in the past were released directly to the public. .
