Ars Technica - It’s time for Nintendo to move beyond white characters.
Japanese company too Caucasian-centric? By the time fan-service fighting series Super Smash Bros. expanded to a
34-character roster, it too reflected Nintendo’s narrow palette: 20 “human”
characters populate Super Smash Bros. Brawl’s roster, and they’re all white.
In fact, that game operates as a sort of Nintendo museum, thanks to its
giant “trophy” selection, and its diversity offerings are just as scant.
