Bethesda's Wolfenstein II promo doubles down on the Nazi punching

So there was some "controversy" (in large-ass air-quotes) recently, concerning the marketing for Bethesda's upcoming game WOLFENSTEIN II: THE NEW COLOSSUS. See, they ran this promo (which, mind you, began as a game set in WWII, then transitioned into an alternate history where evil Nazis have taken over America):

Which, for some unfathomable reason, led to these responses:

Anyway, here's Bethesda's answer to that:

Meanwhile, Bethesda VP of marketing and PR Pete Hines, elaborated:

We don't feel it's a reach for us to say Nazis are bad and un-American. And we're not worried about being on the right side of history here...In 'Wolfenstein's' case, it's pure coincidence that Nazis are marching in the streets of America this year. And it's disturbing that the game can be considered a controversial political statement at all.

So it seems WOLFENSTEIN II: THE NEW COLOSSUS will punch tons more Nazis October 27th.

Extra Tidbit: Honestly, people should be more riled up that Mario has been a serial abuser to Yoshi all these years.
