Foreign netizens accuse “Yuan Shen” new character “Taibai” of disrespecting players
“I think you’re afraid of black people in your games,” accuses @itssunpi, who believes the character was inspired by real-life Nubians and posted a profile picture.
Kandake, which translates to Candace in Latin, was used by the Merois to refer to King Kush’s sister, who was responsible for developing an heir to the throne, she said.
Another said: “It is blatant disrespect to draw inspiration from historical figures, but to whitewash the characters for their own benefit, completely ignoring their players.”
“HoYoverse (a Mihayou brand) has a huge fan base all over the world, and I firmly believe that the company should do the right thing for different audiences. The design of Candice and the entire Xumi area is unrepresentative and should not be the case. of.”
