Why was the Rising Sun removed from Street Fighter II? | Digital Trends Spanish


The flag of the Rising Sun is one of the symbols that has characterized Japan throughout time; However, it is a representation that generates controversy in other Asian nations, especially since the Second World War.

Due to its recognition, the image has commonly appeared in various popular culture products, including video games.

Many will remember Street fighter ii, particularly the E. Honda level. In this setting, in a kind of public bath, a poster of a kabuki actor, Mount Fuji, stood out in the background, in addition to the design of the Rising Sun on the left.

However, this last representative element has been deleted from the version of Street fighter ii which is part of the Capcom Arcade Stadium, a collection of classic titles that is already available on Nintendo Switch and that should soon reach other consoles.

In this new version you can see Mount Fuji with the actor, but without the presence of the rising sun.

Currently, the flag of the Rising Sun constitutes the military flag of Japan, and is considered offensive in countries such as China and South Korea, where it is associated with the Japanese imperialism of the last century.

This image has also been removed from other video games. A while ago, the developers at PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds should have apologized for bringing it in.

Many players have expressed their disagreement with the change, not because of a question of value, but because they consider that the new stage looks a bit empty without the characteristic presence of the rising sun.
