Kung Fu Hustle director Stephen Chow has said he isn’t responsible for alleged plagiarism of CyberConnect 2’s Asura’s Wrath in Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons. Kotaku reports Chow’s representatives told Chinese press that any similarities between the film’s effects and the Capcom-published brawler are the responsibility of a special effects company. Co-director Derek Kwok is known to have seen the game, though.
