Hi Dark, Hahahahaha! Yeah, that would be pretty weird seeing King Arthor and the rest all armed to the teeth with all these Japanese weapons. However, fortunately I am enough of a historian and purest not to do something quite that rediculous. Grin. As far as why all these martial arts weapons are so popular consider who is writing most of the vidio games these days. Most of the major mainstream games are being put out by Japanese owned companies and naturally their culture gets fused heavily into their game releases. Martial arts is heavily important to the Japanese people, and instead of swords and weapons from a number of cultures people are getting exposed to one cultures concept of weaponry. I, on the other hand, have a rather indepth interest in ancient history and mythology. Thus why games like Tomb Hunter. As a result of that interest if I were to set a story in England during the early middle ages Arthor and the rest would be equipped suitably with weapons and armor present from that era not Japanese weapons. Lol!
