I was right about the UK two Januarys ago but the amount of evidence towards it was overwhelming.
Because of the DLCs, I feel like China and colder regions like Russia would be out. I also think that it'll be a drier region (something we haven't really had before) so that it's not too similar...
Australia has a massive asian population...
Just because you don't know about Australia doesn't mean that most people around the world wouldn't.
I personally think that an Australia region would be very cool. The outback would be a fantastic place for a wild area.
I actually wouldn't have minded if Alola was full of such references. The Male Gardens was a nice touch. Also, Rainbow Rocket (even though it was only in USUM) was a great way to round off the anniversary celebrations imo.
Well I was explaining why a South Asian region could become problematic so I don't see how that was off-topic or a deviation since these concerns are indeed part and parcel of whether a particular geographical space should be used as the settings for the next game.
As above, I brought it up...
First of, by no means am I saying that there will be cultural appropriation. Rather, what I'm trying to say is that cultural appropriation talks is bound to occur.
This doesn't give them a free pass to do whatever they want.
France is also a dominant culture so it can't be appropriated since...
This is from two years ago and a minutia of the bigger discourse on whether it is problematic for a non-Japanese developer to make a game about Japan.
Yes but South Asia and Japan being both from Asia doesn't mean that it wouldn't be problematic. K-pop and J-pop are both Asian as well and...
IMO, with the amount of backlash Ghost of Tsushima got (which IMO is unwarranted though I'm in no position to speak since I'm neither Japanese nor Japanese American), there's just gonna be a whole lot of discourse on cultural appropriation if the next region is set in South Asia. Once again...
Wait you think so? I feel like the British elements (particularly the Galar forms) are kind of on the nose and poorly executed as compared to what they did with Alola.
I do agree with you on Leon, Hop and also Raihan (maybe Chairman Rose even?) being Poke-desi though.
Idk about that. Japan doesn't know any more about Indian culture than the UK or the US. Also, desi people are very, very vocal about cultural appropriation but WELL at least GF doesn't care much about fan backlash :wynaut:
