Tekken Tag Tournament 2’s Saudi Arabia Stage Will Remove Accidental Usage of ‘Allah’

Posted by at 10:02 am on October 29, 2012


Tekken Tag Tournament 2 has had to address a major controversial feature, the game’s “Saudi Arabia” stage has created a stir of its own through usage of imagery that may be offensive to Muslims.

The issue stems from the level’s floor texture; a pattern of repeating stars that each contain the Arabic script for “Allah.” This design element was a complete accident, according to TTT2 producer Katsuhiro Harada. “We didn’t know that,” Harada tweeted in response to players that informed him of the script’s meaning. “We will change stage design data as soon as possible. We couldn’t read that.”

No further specifics were given on when or how the update will be made available, or what the pattern will be replaced with.
