Did a Korean Video Game Company Steal Namie Amuro’s Face for Their New Game?

On September 22, Korean video game company NHN PixelCube Corporation released their new mobile RPG game “Kill Me Again: Infectors” for Android smartphones. In the game, a zombie apocalypse has taken place and the player’s character fights to survive. The game is available worldwide, and is available in 10 different languages, including English, Korean, Japanese, Spanish, and Russian.

However, one of the images used to promote the game bears a striking resemblance to one of Namie’s Amuro’s single covers.

On March 12, 2008, Namie Amuro released the single “60s 70s 80s.” As the title suggests, it was a triple A-side single where each song was influenced by a different decade. This single is seen as a big part of Namie’s comeback, since it had her highest first week sales for a single since 2000’s “Never End.” “60s 70s 80s” was also her first #1 single since 1998’s “I Have Never Seen.” In the end, “60s 70s 80s” became Namie’s best selling single since “Never End.”

The promotional image for “Kill Me Again: Infectors” is a digital artwork of a woman’s face that bears similarities to Namie’s face on the cover of the CD+DVD Limited Edition of “60s 70s 80s.” So tell us readers, what do you think?
