It's time to talk about retro games referencing or ripping stuff off.

From Miyazaki's first film, Lupin III Castle of Cagliostro

The game is practically a horror movie reference fest.

That said, I loved the choice for the bosses. I never imagined I'd face Seth Brundle from The Fly in a Famicom game.

>> No.2299271

That's just generic ancient architecture, it wasn't ripped from some anime.

Final Fantasy also used shit ton of references from mythology and artwork - FF7 had norse myth, FF6 had an European theme, etc.

They are not direct rip offs.

Direct rip offs would be the Pantera and Metallica tunes in Doom.

Not as much ripping off, but not making much of an effort.

>> No.2300524

You guys watch too much anime and only anime. It seems like you have no cultural references beyond that.

Castlevania just ripped generic greek and european architeture. The animes did the same.
Floating islands weren't created for the anime Laputa. Actually, Laputa came from Gulliver's Travels. And floating islands exists even in greek mythology.

Stop believing the world revolves around anime.

I always thought the Panzer Dragoon games had a lot of influence from Ghibli stuff, especially Nausicaa. Not sure if the devs ever commended on it.

>> No.2300768

Panzer Dragoon was influenced by european comics, like Moebius, who even did the cover and some concept art for the game.
And some anime was influenced by Moebius.

Come the FUCK on, this is just Parthenon-looking ancient architecture and some ancient greek columns.
I don't know where you come from, but this country's education system is shameful.

>> No.2301621

Boxart is something different from main game. Everyone knows American boxart was always made on the cheap, so people just traced everything in sight. I mean, Contra boxart is pretty famous for that.
I wish I was so naive like you, never going on Deviantart and looking at picture after picture of traced art until I developed "Tracing Sixth Sense" of sorts.

Actually, that isn't a real quote. What Miyazaki DID say, however, was about how otaku aren't interested in world around them and base their entire knowledge of outside world on anime, is perhaps perfectly applicable here.

OP's examples are beyond idiotic, but the idea is interesting.

Here's an actual one. Many of the art assets in Ecco the Dolphin, especially in the prehistoric levels were taken directly from Zedek Burian paintings. Meanwhile the aliens are very clearly modeled after Gieger's work.

That's legit one of my favorite songs of all time.

>> No.2306014

A bunch of levels in S3&K are actually similar looking to some scenes in Laputa (Sky Sanctuary, Hidrocity), but the concept of an island in the sky is not from that anime.

Laputa specifically comes from Gullivers travels.
