Looks like we’ve got another Limbo of the Lost on our hands. The plagiarism on display here in blatant Metal Slug rip-off Commando: Steel Disaster for the DS isn’t as flagrant as LotL’s level design lifting, but it’s still pretty shameless: The title rips off music from classic SNES RPG Chrono Trigger, as well as a 2D Gundam fighting game. Hit the jump for the proof. 

First, the title screen from Commando.

Now check out this Gundam clip. The track is the same as the one used in Commando.

Finally, here’s Chrono Trigger – the game over screen from Commando is the exact same song.
