Resident Evil 5 producer Jun Takeuchi wants to set the record straight about the game and has responded to calls that the game's imagery is racist or inappropriate.

To this charge, he replies, "No, not really." Furthermore, the initial outrage "didn't have any effect on the game design."

"In terms of the reaction, we're in the business of entertainment," he said. "We didn't set out to make a racist game or a political statement. We did feel there was a misunderstanding about the initial trailer."

Do you believe him?

In the most recent trailer, we see a new character that is more ethnically ambiguous and questions were raised about her inclusion. Was she a product of this outcry? Here is the new trailer if you missed it yesterday:

"We wanted Chris to have a partner who was familiar with the environment. She's been in there since pretty much the beginning," explains Takeuchi.

Apparently not. So, there's your answer. Resident Evil 5 is not racist. Move along.
