A 31-year old woman was murdered in Munich and Square Enix’s mega RPG franchise is getting the blame.
Katrina.M was stabbed to death 18 times with a katana with the blame going to Final Fantasy. Seeing all those chocobos might have triggered a violent rage in the young man. Except they’re not blaming the right game.
German press like TZ has posted photos of the alleged killer believed to be either 18 or 19 “cosplaying as his favorite Final Fantasy character.”
But as you can see in the image, he seems to be cosplaying Neku from The World Ends With You. I’ve played TWEWY and it didn’t make me want to murder anyone.
Again, lets blame video games because it’s way easier. If you want to blame a video game, at least get your facts right.
