World Review-Bombed by Steam in a movie backlash in China • .net

Monster Hunter: World has been reviewed-Steam bombed over racist jokes in Monster Hunter movies.

A Monster Hunter movie directed by Paul WS Anderson was screened in China this week, but it didn’t work in China.

Nico Partners analyst Daniel Ahmad told an American soldier to another American soldier, “What are my knees? … what are these knees? … Chinny.” I tweeted a clip of the movie I asked.

Ahmad points out that this joke is related to the phrase “Chinese, Japanese, Dirty Knees-Look at these.” This is called a racist playground chant in English-speaking countries used to mock children from Asia.

According to Ahmad, the jokes are spoken in English, so the subtitles refer to Chinese idioms. Ahmad points out that this difference is not overlooked, but contributes to the controversy.

However, as fans have pointed out, Capcom recently launched a monster hunter movie crossover with Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, adding movie star Milla Jovovich’s Artemis as a playable character in the game. .. Artemis is even voiced by Milla Jovovich himself.

Meanwhile, Monster Hunter: World has been reviewed and bombed on Steam in response to the movie. The game received over 1000 negative reviews on December 4th and by today December 5th it has reached over 500. Almost everything mentions movie clips, but there’s a lot of terrible racism out there. It’s a big old mess.

The Monster Hunter movie was scheduled for release in the UK on December 4, but was postponed as a result of a coronavirus pandemic. It currently expires in the first quarter of 2021. I think it would be without this “joke” when Monster Hunter was finally launched to the west.
