From the article " Regardless, once again we see that standing up to bullies isn’t just good judgment, it’s good business."

Oh yes :)

This is giving me a serious justice rager.

It's refreshing to see that, while they are very loud, the collective nonsense these people can foist upon unwilling parties is limited in its scope.

There were no bullies trying to stop this game from being released. This was pure marketing.

First they said "We'll release it if there's enough demand"

Then they probably said, "Shit, our threat didn't create enough demand. You there, social media guy, any ideas?"

"Uhh... tell them we feel too threatened by bad publicity and western political correctness. But announce it publicly on social media"

"Genius."

I doubt play-asia (a relatively small online retailer) has much connection to Koei Tecmo.

Why should we believe that this was a marketing stunt over play-asia putting it's foot down and standing up to bullies? Just because they're seeing increased sales from loyal customers and controversy doesn't mean they weren't trying to do right by gamers. Trying to convince everyone it's some massive marketing conspiracy scandal doesn't do anything helpful.
