Level-5 recently launched Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom on PlayStation 4 and PC, and the highly-anticipated RPG sequel is pulling in glowing reviews. Despite the game’s critical success, it’s taking some heat in Japan thanks to a controversial trailer. Japanese gamers are taking issue with the trailer’s music, as it’s incredibly similar to a famous piece from the Dragon Quest franchise.
Level-5 has disabled all comments on the video, but it currently has nearly five times as many dislikes as likes. Without the ability to comment on the video itself, irritated fans have taken to Japanese messageboard 2ch to complain. You can compare the two tracks below and judge for yourself. The Dragon Quest music in question starts around 23 seconds into the second video.
