The teams behind new Switch JRPG Revenge of Justice have both issued statements to their official websites today, apologising over content found within the game.
Both Kemco, the game's publisher, and developer City Connection have acknowledged reports that said the new game has a number of similarities to PC game, Harusuberiya Jojishi 2. After an investigation into the situation, it was found that the latter was used as a reference for certain scenarios, settings, character settings, and dialogue in the new game.
Yashioji, the creator of the Harusuberiya series, has made it clear that he is not involved with this new, unrelated project from Kemco and City Connection. Despite all of this, all three parties have noted that, after some discussion, sales of Revenge of Justice will continue as planned and that Yashioji has no issue with the continued distribution of the game.
Revenge of Justice is available now on Switch and PS4, exclusively in Japan. It's a new strategy RPG with multiple endings to discover.
