Yoko Taro: The Hero
Right now he is working as the director for Nier Automata and this guy is a fucking nut. He always comes out in a big mask shaped like one of his characters and all of his videos are a bit mental. I watched an announcement this morning about how if you pre order Nier Automata you get a T-Shirt and it ended with him rolling around on the floor rubbing the T-Shirt over his body. He's fucking great.
Apparently there was a bit of controversy with the upcoming game though because some people don't appreciate the main characters ass being on display.
But the absolute best thing to this whole situation is Yoko Taro's response
WHAT. A FUCKING. LAD.
There have been tons of examples of games being changed or censored in some way, especially during localization, because there are lots of crybabies on the internet nowadays who will get all up in arms if you dare to have an ass showing or a character in a bikini or some shit so it's nice to see a developer who embraces this side of things. No artist should ever have to change their shit just because some prick on twitter or tumblr is "offended", these people should be told to fuck off and their stupid whining ignored. According to his wiki page as well he likes to be blunt with his opinions and feels that fans deserve truth and honesty.
So let's take a moment to appreciate Yoko Taro, truly a hero that we all need right now.
