You might remember that back in November I wrote about the the creators of Chaos Saga being accused of lifting characters and other assets from Square Enix's Final Fantasy to use in the game. At the time, the game's publisher Braeve issued an apology to everyone involved in the issue but Square Enix itself. Now, Square Enix has finally gotten its apology.

According to Braeve, Chaos Saga had 24 copyright infringements tied to the Final Fantasy MMO as well as some from Final Fantasy XII. These included characters and creatures. The company apologized for the "significant trouble" this issue caused Square Enix and attributed it to a lack of staff needed to look over the game's assets.

DMM Games, the company responsible for the game's release, also apologized, saying:

“We would like to apologize from the bottom of our hearts to Square Enix and everyone at the company for all the trouble caused by violating Square Enix’s copyright."

They also stated that they were working to prevent similar mistakes from happening in the future.

Why it's taken this long to issue the apology wasn't stated. However, some have speculated that it was probably due to the companies dealing with the matter in court first.

Oh, what a surprise. A Chinese game "company" stealing assets. Hardly news, really. Good to see they got what was coming to them, though. Hint: Don't steal in the first place, you morons.
