Akiba's Beat localization changes Akiba's Beat had a sign in it most likely referencing a Japanese company called "NKK Switches". The sign in question said "KKK Witches" on it. When this was noticed by a Tom from XSeed, he found it amusing and pointed it out to other members of XSeed, who were worried about it. They contacted the developer of the game to ask what the intended meaning behind the sign was, explaining the sign and its potential connotations in the West, and the developers just responded to that by sending them a build of the game with the sign changed. Tom felt bad about this, so he asked to have his name removed from the credits of the game, however company policy for XSeed is that if someone asks to have their name removed from the credits of a game, they aren't allowed to have their name in the credits of any game. Tom knew this and still asked for his name to be removed. According to XSeed's forums, Tom's main issue with it is that the change was made to the game not because it would give players a better understanding of what's in the game, but because it was something that could make people uncomfortable. He doesn't want games to be changed for that reason. In response to this, Kotaku wrote a shoddy article about it which of course has sparked controversy in some of the usual circles of the internet, most notably, Neogaf. Well, how do you guys feel about this?
