Naoe, the Female Lead of Assassins Creed Shadows, is a Stand-In as Well

The forced DEI in Assassins Creed Shadows doesn’t end with Yasuke. (Is “forced DEI” an oxymoron?) Yesterday, the trailer for Assassins Creed Shadows revealed that the two lead characters in the game – which is set in 1500s Japan and is about the samurai and shinobi (ninjas) – were a black man and a Japanese woman. Yesterday, I talked about how the game reinterprets Yasuke as a samurai when, according to historical records, he almost certainly wasn’t, and concerned parties then tried to gaslight people into believing he was via Wikipedia edits. Well, it turns out Yasuke’s co-lead is a stand-in for another historical figure. Her name is Naoe, and she is “a female shinobi” who is the daughter of Fujibayashi Nagato, one of the greatest shinobi of all and an important man in Japan’s history. Fujibayashi Nagato is in the game as Naoe’s father, but he’s essentially a background character, while his daughter is one of the playable leads. So, for Yasuke, they forced a historical figure who didn’t fit the part into one lead role by changing him into a samurai, and they replaced another historical figure who would have been a perfect lead for the game with his daughter, who probably wouldn’t have been a shinobi at the time. Endymion has a terrific video on the topic that you can see below:

Doesn’t this make you want to go through each developer’s social media history and look for examples of them whining about cultural appropriation? They’re imposing their stupid woke sociopolitical nonsense on Japanese history and culture, then patting themselves on the back for embracing said desecrated culture. Meanwhile, those evil, racist, hateful gamers are the ones calling this insulting and embracing actual Japanese history and culture. And according to Endymion’s video (Assassins Creed isn’t my thing; I played the very first one and didn’t care for it, although the cashier at GameStop warned me that it sucked.), this isn’t the first time they’ve modernized older cultures in this series for DEI purposes. What’s disturbing about this one is that they’re not owning up to it, in which case I don’t think people would care as much; they’re lying about history and pointing the finger at anyone who notices that they’re lying. It’s going to be fascinating to see how well this game does when it’s released in November. And Endymion is right about Ghost of Tsushima; that game is awesome.

Japan is definitely under attack from the West. Rahm Emanuel went over there and pushed them for diversity, open borders, and LGBTQ stuff. It looks like Japan is going to change and it it goes along with LibTardism, it will be the end of Japan.
Some cultural anthropologists think that the superpowers of tomorrow will simply be homogeneous masses of peoples that manage to keep their traditions intact the most, so Russia, China, India, etc. Whereas the ones that leave themselves open to dilution will simply see their nations become a kind of bazaar or shopping mall instead of countries.
So, this game may be a bit of the propaganda assault that is the result of submitting to multiculturalism, which, I think, is a mistake for Japan. The question I don’t know the answer to, is how much open border invasion can a territory take until it’s no longer a nation? I would think that it has to be less than twenty percent and maybe even ten. So, if more than 2 out of 10 people in Japan become foreign invaders, Japan may cease to be a nation and instead, become an “idea,” which is what they west tells it’s peoples, that they are just an idea and not really a nation or a country anymore.

    Are you friggin serious? Rahm Emanuel SERIOUSLY went to Japan and tried to push that crap down their throats?

    I’ll tell Rahm Emanuel to his face that I’ll NEVER bend the knee to him or ANY of the woke!!!

      You have heart, Kratos. You have that Gamer attitude that I like. Gamers insist on their lore and story.
      Yeah, Rahm is the ambassador to Japan and pushed the Rainbow flag stuff.
      The thing about basing your nation on an idea, instead of on demographic peoples, is that ideas change. One idea today becomes a different idea tomorrow and we are now seeing a lot of bad ideas and paying the price for it.

    Japan doesn’t like you. At all. And their culture likes kids lol. Younger the better. But you don’t bash that. Point being all cultures have a negative. Also you do realize China and japan are just as consumerist as america right? They aren’t gonna thrive and be cultural this and that lol. They are the same as the USA all big countries as. Japan is so consumerist they invited white day as a boys valentines return gift or wtv thing to double the profits. KFC made Christmas buckets to increase profit 10 fold. And the Japanese love it. They are the most consumerist nations gatcha. Is beloved in japan. Just gambling. Even have gatcha for car rentals. But yeah totally we’re gonna lose. Uh huh. Yeah.

Too bad we’re getting yet another woke game release, but what’s really alarming and troubling are the attempts to re-write history by the Wikipedia edits and the gaslighting in the media coverage. Evil like this can’t thrive without suppressing reality.

    What rewrite is happening then numb nuts. Assassins creed is historical fiction. And even then it’s just a game. Snowflake ass.
