Matsuoka's fate During the 2nd part of "Smile", Kun
Lan & Harman were both violently gunned down. Or in other words
they were erased from Emir's conscious. Kun Lan & Harman's
metaphoric game of chess remains unfinished with both sides on
check. It's all up to Emir to decide the outcome of the game, as
he's the one holding all the pieces now.
You boys are almost done.
You don't need to go around killing everybody anymore.
The last of the Heaven Smile's is in the back, the big boss.
If you do him, then it means you've eradicated all of them.
No more terrorism...hmm hail to the free world.
but I wonder what will become of you guys if terrorism is the law
Now you should kill me now, cause you don't want us hanging around,
know what I mean.
If I'm alive I'll give you a run for your money.
Even an assassin like yourself.
Better be prepared, cause blood must atone for blood. So which will
Your own country, or watch our retribution.
Your fucking decision.
Choosing to kill him means
you have decided to ignore your past & have sided with your
country the United States. Kenjiro Matsuoka's death signifies the
end of a Japanese threat of terrorism. Matsuoka was Japan's last
hope of survival. Without his influence over the voting process,
Japan just doesn't have the means necessary to gather enough
international support to attack the U.S.A. The RISING SUNshall rise no more.
Let him live.
Choosing to let him live means that you have
stayed true to your roots as an assassin for the Japanese
government. As such Matsuoka finally shows signs of respect for
you, and addresses you
(Douzo: By all means)
in his mother tongue. (Though with a heavy American accent.) With
the political power of Matsuken's "unshakable vote" he is able to
garner enough support to convince the U.N. to launch an attack on
Possibly starting another World
War, right where WW II ended...Japan v.s. U.S.A. Except this time
Japan is supported with the U.N. alliance as the offensive &
the U.S.A. on the defensive. This marks the first time ever in
history that the U.S.A. has ever had to defend a full frontal
assault on their homeland. Seems now they will feel the brunt of
what Europe has endured during the first two World Wars.ECONOMIC COLLAPSE,& utter calamity.
Which choice is right?
None of them are. Both choices are nothing more than
opposite sides of the same coin. They are as equally wrong or valid
as you want them to be Either way you look at it the Heaven Smile
gets eradicated anyway. It matters not, whether Japan gets
destroyed once & for all by the U.S.A.,
or the U.S.A. being plunged to the Dark Ages,
finally experiencing what a true war for survival feels like. It
matters not, because the world keeps on turning. 100 years later in
the red-light districts of Shanghai. Kun Lan & Harman are
brought together again for another game of war. Only time will tell
what the "Third Eye" has in store this time around.
In order to keep
Japan silent, the United States is seen blowing up gunkajima.
With Matsuken alive he has coerced an
allied attack against the U.S.A. through the use of both his
underground supporters in the U.S. & the secret that he found
out about the United States voting system.
A rather Ironic end, as can be shown by the epilogue.
The game hints at China(Shanghai) as a possibility of being the
country who indirectly started the conflict between the U.S. &
Target: Lion is actually a reference to the
Sleeping Lion: China, although the game uses Matsuken (a Japanese
man) to represent the Lion. (China)
Eagle is represented by the African American. (Garcian Smith.)
The logic of the ending is centered around the cosmic lawof
casualty: cause & effect. Otherwise known as Karma.
THE KILLERS ARE HERE...
Quick fact: Mai Shiranui has big ass (+Y+)
