Nikki: Goddess of Victory A new ad in Thailand may have hit too close to home for some players, sparking a backlash in the game’s community.
Nikke is a free-to-play, mobile gacha shooter where players collect various scantily clad female warriors to battle waves of enemies. The rear camera angle from which the game is played is strategically placed to give players an ideal view of the back of each character, with generous “juggle” physics as the female machine guns and snipers. Fires various weapons such as rifles.
A new one Thai advertising (through deputy) A teenage player plays Nikke at a birthday party for Nikke. He licks his lips and bounces up and down in exasperation as he looks at the physics applied to the game’s cast of female characters. A little boy approaches her and brings her a birthday cake. This prompts the young man to begin daydreaming about what Nikke would be like if she were real, after which a trio of Nikke cosplayers appear before him.
Eventually the little boy snaps it out of her and she blows out the candles on the cake, ending the ad. Nikke, the company behind Tencent, has been around ever since. Sorry for the adStating that he had heard complaints about how the ad portrayed his players and its inappropriate content. Tencent has since tried to pull the video from various social platforms, but the video can still be easily found on places like The nod subreddit.
However, in an unexpected twist, another part of the game’s community is actually upset that the ad is being pulled, and claims that some players are drawn to the game for being honest about the ad. There is nothing wrong with me. It is unclear whether Tencent plans to address the situation further.
