When a trailer was recently revealed featuring Agent 47 squaring off against scantily clad nuns, it didn’t go over so well. People were offended not only that nuns would don skintight leather and fire off assualt weapons, but that they were being brutally assassinated by a bald man in a suit.
As the general public remains unable to separate media from life, it’s no surprise there was backlash. IO seems to think the problem was that the nuns were portrayed out of context:
“We learned from the trailer that we really needed to give these characters some context and some backstory. We’re working within the game – within that level – to build these characters up before you meet them. That way you know what you’re getting and you aren’t put off by them.”
I’m sure those previously offended will rest well knowing that the nuns aren’t just eye candy. Crisis averted. It’s unfortunate that this once-random ludicrously funny addition needs to be sanitized to spare the feelings of the hyper-sensitive. Proof the country isn’t ready for mixing sexuality, violence and religion.
