Lufia music plagiarized again?

Postby News System » Thu May 17, 2012 2:54 pm

If you've played Lufia II, you should recognize a part of Battle#2 (the boss battle theme) in this song. (The part between 1:10-1:31, to be more exact. And you can hear it two more times during the song)





This song is called "The Arc" and it's from Alice Nine, a Japanese rock band.


Here's a comparison video, comparing it to the original version of Battle#2 that appeared in Lufia II.








(The Japanese version of) Lufia II ,and therefore Battle#2, have been around since 1995. More recently, Battle#2 appeared in Lufia Curse of the Sinistrals which was released in 2010. An arranged version can also be found on its soundtrack which was released the same year. Meanwhile, the album that "The Arc" appeared on, was released in February of 2012.

My mind is blown, wow O_O Now that's either a weird coincidence or a weirder plagiarism. But then again, Alice Nine has been accused of plagiarism before ( http://z6.invisionfree.com/DISTORTIONAL ... /t1135.htm - I've never listened to this band before, apart from these two songs, so maybe the stuff they say in this link is made up), so it wouldn't be surprised if one of the band members actually listened to the Lufia II ost, said "hey this track's really cool! (ne~)", and decided to use it in a song.

Hah, wow! It's not even subtle. Could they be sued?

I remember that Neverland wasn't able to do anything about it but at least there was an apology letter for another case of music plagiarism (when For the Savior was used in a Super Robot Taisen game)
