Final Sword developers believe they had licensed Zelda’s music properly

We recently shared with you that the indie action and role-playing title Final Sword contained music from The Legend of Zelda. Due to this, the game was removed from the Switch eShop. This caused quite a stir on social media, as the title had become very popular, especially in Japan.

The withdrawal is surely due to problems related to Zelda’s background music that we were talking about. These would be legal problems related to the possibility of using such melodies for commercial purposes.

The background music sounded like “Zelda’s Lullaby.”

Have a listen for yourself.

Compare to “Zelda’s Lullaby.”

According to Automaton, Final Sword has been removed from the eShop after using Zelda music without permission.

Well, HUP Games, responsible for this title, have spoken about it and have shared that they believe that they had licensed the music in the proper way. This is the data they have shared:

  • In an interview with Automaton-Media, members of the HUP Games team said they bought the background music to use in their game.
  • They thought they had the appropriate license to include it, but obviously it was not.
  • HUP Games explained the situation to Nintendo and is planning to change the new music to relaunch the game.
