Sonic Unleashed swastikas removed

Recent patches for Sonic Unleashed seem to have removed the swastikas featured on ice level Holoska. The symbol could be seen on the daytime levels, and was first spotted back in November.

Before...

The swastika, which is a part of a texture in the game, has been transformed into a box by connecting the four points together. The rest of the texture remains the same.

It is not known whether the change was made in the most recent patch, or an earlier one. Whenever it was made, it has only been noticed today.

...After

It should be noted that the symbol has been used in cultures for many thousands of years, not just by the Nazi Party. Their emblem was rotated 45°, whereas most other variants (such as in the game) are not.

On that note, I'll leave you with this. Make of it what you will...
