Sony has pulled a new music video that features numerous PS4 titles over allegations of plagiarism.
The video, released by Sony Interactive Entertainment Asia, features work by Tanaka, whom Gematsu reports has previously worked with Boku no Lyric no Boyomi. The video — which features 16 PS4 titles including Final Fantasy VII Remake, FIFA 20, Persona 5 Royal, One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4, Death Stranding, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Nioh 2, Yakuza: Like a Dragon, Project Sakura Wars and Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot — has come under fire for the animations found between the clips.
Animation site Catsuka says the video “is a rip of many animations from all around the world,” including Steven Universe, FLCL, Gobelins and more and has made a video that details the similarities.
