Art Tracing Alleged In Arena 9

Eagle-eyed readers and fans of the work of SNK King of Fighters artist “Falcoon” have identified a number of striking similarities between character art from Humble Gaming’s upcoming card battle game Arena 9, and character art from other games.

Jeff Lyndon, who took credit for the artwork when we spoke to him for our WWDC preview, has been contacted for comment and is currently en-route to Hong Kong. We will provide you with his response, and Humble Gaming’s response, as soon as we can.

Meanwhile, consider the evidence: On the left are images from Falcoon, and on the right are images from Arena 9. Full-sized images are available below each image.
