OK, so I just finished Tomb Raider last night, has someone who has spent a considerable amount of time studying Japanese history, culture and art, I found Eidos's take on Japanese history pretty glaring. For instance why is Himiko/Pimiko being guarded by samurai? Samurai tradition came into play over a thousand years later than the time himiko would have lived. Secondly why are there so many buddhist statues in Tomb Raider. Himiko would have belonged to the shinto religion most likely since buddhism didn't make its way into until after Himiko would have lived as well. It certainly wouldn't have been a popular religion among the royalty. Also most of the buddhist relics and statues look like they are from the 12th century Japan. Most glaring is the Onna-e painting of himiko. A style of painting that is from the 16th century.
Secondly why the fuck did the demon soldiers get pissed when he said jouu. She is a princess. Her name is Japanese for princess. Why the hell would they call her queen.
Did I miss something here, is there a valid reason for all these errors?
For those that don't know Himiko was a ruler of the Yamato ( the major ethnicity of present day Japan.) in the second century A.D.
