Kung Fu Saga, a mobile RPG game, has been accused of copying new mechanics from Nintendo’s Tears of the Kingdom. The game’s marketing tactic blatantly rips off mechanics such as Fuse and Recall. The mobile app’s recent advertisement features a green-dressed hero, who rides on a piece of falling debris to an aerial dungeon.
The hero then uses the new “weapon synthesis feature” to fuse a nearby boulder to their stick and attacks a horde of enemies. Reddit user, niteowwl, posted the ad to the r/tearsofthekingdom page, where it received attention from other users. The similarities between the two games have been pointed out, and it is likely to be a significant issue from Nintendo’s point of view.
The use of Zelda mechanics in such a blatant manner is unethical and might lead to legal action. The mobile game is accused of copying the mechanics from Nintendo’s Tears of the Kingdom, which is unacceptable. Furthermore, the mobile game’s cinematic trailer with no mention of its gameplay is misleading. It is unlikely that the app plays as it does in the showcase.
In conclusion, Nintendo’s Tears of the Kingdom has been in the market for a while, and the game’s mechanics are well-known. The mobile game’s blatant copying of these mechanics might lead to legal action and put the game’s future in jeopardy. It is essential to respect intellectual property rights and avoid unethical practices in the gaming industry.
