We all know the story of Eternal Champions. The EC plucked near-dead people from time to fight for their lives in his tourney. The winner goes back for a chance to change his future.
It was a cool storyline for a fighting game, and the basic premise has potential. I’m not a developer or anything, but this got me thinking about copyrights.
If someone wanted to use the basic premise of EC, would they catch a lawsuit? Even with different characters and maybe different circumstances to the tournament? That premise, again, is influential people, plucked from time before their deaths, fighting for a chance to go back and change things.
