Videogame Ad Sets New Low for Objectifying Women Thank the Japanese for this one

So, here's an early contender for least subtle sexualized ad of the year. Apparently this is an English translation of a Japanese print ad for the videogame Soul Calibur V, a fighting series that's as famous for its copious cleavage as for its cutlery. British lad mag Nuts says the ad was banned in the U.K., but that's likely just a tactic to generate buzz because obviously an ad like this needs help getting attention. Full ad after the jump. Possibly NSFW.
