Namco pulls 'inexcusable' Mr. Driller image

Publisher offers "profound apology" over Chilean miners-related picture

Namco Bandai has pulled an 'inconsiderate' picture of Mr. Driller it released this week to celebrate the rescue of the 33 Chilean miners trapped underground for two months.


"We would like to offer a profound apology to everyone," the company Tweeted, according to Kotaku. "It was inexcusable."

It sounds like Namco's being a bit hard on itself to us, but if the picture upset someone involved in the whole affair then fair play for taking it down.
