Square Enix Rips Off “Inazuma Eleven”

Square Enix have been accused of blatant plagiarism for publishing “Samurai Eleven,” a football game which bears more than a striking resemblance to Level-5’s popular “Inazuma Eleven” series.

As usual, just to what extent this can be brushed off as chance similarity or used as to sustain a damning accusation of shameless plagiarism is a matter of individual judgement, though the level of similarity in naming and presentation is such that Square Enix can hardly have thought parallels would not be drawn.

The game itself is just a worthless text based free-to-play/pay-per-item mobile-phone game of the sort Japanese are apparently willing to tolerate as no-one else is.
