Anarchy Reigns Now Has Its Sterotypical Black Character

Hey, it’s a Japanese game. Wouldn’t be complete without another look of how Japan views African-Americans. Anarchy Reigns‘ new character is called “The Blacker Baron” (not making that up), who’s “too fresh to death” and ready to beat down guys with his “Super Sexy Fists of Fire”. (He describes their phoenix relief on them as “too money for the honeys”.)

Well, at least they’re pretty transparent about the point of the character. Seems just ridiculous and over-the-top enough that it’s self-parody.

Hit the jump for some concept art and a trailer of Blacker Baron doing his thing.
