No More Heroes 3

No More Heroes 3 debuted a brand new trailer at The Game Awards last night. The video itself has gone over well with fans, but a bit of a messy situation has started to develop.

Over on Twitter, Studio Plumeau claims that the trailer uses animation without permission. A comparison, which can be seen below, definitely shows how strikingly similar the two are.

Studio Plumeau says it made the animation back in 2013:

Grasshopper Manufacture hasn’t commented on the situation, so it’s unclear how the animation ended up in the No More Heroes 3 trailer. However, Twitter user LokPolymorfa has one possible explanation. The digital service known as Envato seems to have originally stolen the animation in 2014, and the team involved with the trailer for No More Heroes 3 may have used it without knowing that it was plagiarized.
