Even though It´s been less than two days since it became publicly (and officially) known that Nintendo had removed Alison Rapp from her duties at Treehouse, it´s once again time for yet another Treehouse scandal (there seems to be no end to Nintendo´s PR nightmare…). However, this time it´s not related to Rapp. No, instead it´s Nich Maragos (Nintendo localizer at Treehouse) that has started a lot of fuss on Twitter. So, what did Maragos do? Well, obviously he thought that it would be a good idea to tell people to avoid Marvelous Games and Tamsoft´s “Senran Kagura” series like the plague (the tweets are from 2013 and 2014, so Maragos made those statements before he joined Treehouse. However, the tweets have just started spread all over the place):

nich maragos vs senran kagura

Oh, another “conflict of interest” case involving Nich Maragos. How…nice.

So I take it that Maragos haven´t learned a single thing from neither his own nor Rapp´s previous mistakes, as he keeps on stacking up new conflict of interest cases to his name. Quite frankly, I think it´s about time that Nintendo makes kicks-off a big spring clean operation at the Treehouse HQ. As it seems like the Treehouse wood is rotten to the core…And just for the record, Maragos is a big hypocrite. Because back in 2014 he uploaded a video called “Nich Maragos – #roomforeveryone” (I´ll get to the point shortly). And in the video he talked about “the fear that social justice issues are in danger of killing gaming, and explains why it’s not founded.”. In short, back in 2014 Maragos was against having loud minorities telling game developers and publishers what they could and couldn´t do with their games. However, shortly after that he had uploaded that video in 2014, Maragos became the right opposite to that (thus his statements about censorship and anti fan service).

And even though Maragos tweets about “Senran Kagura” are from 2013 and 2014. I hardly doubt that Maragos has changed his mind about “Senran Kagura” since then, as he continues to drop statements about censoring naked skin in video games. Well, let´s just say that I don´t agree with his views. And personally, I think that developers should be able to create whatever games they want (let the free market decide who will fail and who will succeed). I would also like to point out that Maragos has made his tweets hidden and protected from the private eye, and since we are blocked by Maragos on Twitter as well. It´s rather hard for me to see if Maragos have responded to his old tweets about “Senran Kagura” (I will try to reach out to him via mail instead).

Nevertheless, I would still like to know if whether or not Maragos holds the same thoughts about “Senran Kagura” (that people shouldn´t buy any of the “Senran Kagura” games) today. I hardly doubt that he would go on record about that though, as Nintendo wouldn´t like the fact that his telling people to avoid buying a Nintendo product…(as that would mean less money for Nintendo). Any ways, if you want to get in touch with Nintendo about this matter. Then call them on “877-803-3676” (it´s their US consumer services supervisor phone number) .

With that said, what do you think about all of this? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section down below!
