Alleged racist tones in a Resident Evil 5 trailer have sparked changes in the way Capcom operates in the West, the publisher has admitted.
The controversy occurred back in 2008 when a Resident Evil 5 trailer depicted the slaughter of black zombies.
Senior PR manager for Capcom US, Melody Pfeiffer (great name), has said that the western arm of the company is now involved in the creative process from the beginning of development - to make sure it won't cause moral hysteria over here.
"Since the RE5 controversy, we have become much more aware of how important it is that we are part of the asset creation process early on so that we are able to have a say in the end product," she told Gamasutra.
"We are also designing a lot of our own assets from this side of the pond so that we are able to make strategic pieces of content that make sense for our market."
"We are working really closely with our producers in Japan to construct these materials for the West and they are open more then ever to hearing our thoughts and ideas for assets."
Resident Evil 5 is set to get Move support with a patch being released with the Sony motion controller on September 15.
