Assassin’s Creed Shadows: Respecting Japanese Culture or Committing Cultural Appropriation?

Feudal Japan, the most requested setting in Assassin's Creed history, is finally being brought to life in Assassin's Creed Shadows. But excitement quickly turned to controversy when the game's reveal trailer showcased Yasuke, a historical figure of African origin, labeled as a "legendary African Samurai." This has sparked debate amongst historians and gamers alike about the accuracy of the portrayal and whether Ubisoft is engaging in cultural appropriation.
