On Tuesday, September 28th PDT, the dev team released the first look at the character model for Silver Samurai. Since then, we have heard some significant concerns with the symbol on Silver Samurai’s chest, as it has historical associations with military subjugation in certain regions - we did not intend to endorse this message.
The dev team is taking action to address the design by removing the symbol on the character model by next week. We greatly appreciate that players brought this to our attention quickly so that we can move swiftly on our end to address it.
The dev team wants to be considerate of all cultural sensitivities, and we apologize that this was not fully examined earlier in the development process. We will work hard to consider issues like this in future to ensure the best experience for all players.
