Namco Changes Tekken Floor Pattern To Appease Muslim Fans

A stage in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 has sparked controversy after it was found that a pattern in its floor spells the word “Allah” in Arabic.

The word is part of an arabesque pattern on the floor of the Saudi Arabia stage in the game. The game’s design team couldn’t read it and used it only as an artistic pattern with Arabian style. However, Muslim gamers have voiced their distaste for having the name of their deity trodden over by the fighters while playing.

"We didn't know that," producer Katsuhiro Harada tweeted. "We will change stage design data as soon as possible. We couldn't read that."

Namco Bandai will release a patch soon to replace the floor pattern with another one. Specific time frame has not been specified yet.

I'm not a religious person but still.

**** that now you lost me as a buyer and I bet many others. White man is so ******* stupid to bend over for others and beg them to take it up the ***. And who the **** spotted that on the floor. In muslim religion you ask them the name of their god and they will say that "IT" has many names. What about when the games or anything else make jokes and mockery of other religions? I guess its ok then huh.
