No More Heroes 3

After No More Heroes 3 debuted its latest trailer at The Game Awards, animation company Studio Plumeau made note that an effect used in the video was essentially a copy of what it had previously created. It wasn’t clear how that ended up there, but some fans suggested that it was stolen from another outlet – not by Grasshopper Manufacture.

Thankfully, the dust has settled, and things have been resolved amicably. Studio Plumeau recently confirmed that the effect was purchased from the digital asset service Envato, and the team involved with No More Heroes 3’s trailer wasn’t aware of any wrongdoing. Unfortunately, a certain user was selling different assets made by many artists, including the one from Studio Plumeau. The two sides have talked and Grasshopper says “the matter has been officially resolved.”
