Nexon Caught Using Diablo 3 Concept Art for Vindictus MMORPG

South Korea-based Nexon has been caught using Diablo III art without Blizzard's permission to promote its MMORPG, Vindictus.

According to Kotaku, Nexon posted some new promo art (provided above) for its latest patch of Vindictus that reminded people of a certain popular dungeon-crawler. Nexon is mainly known for Maple Story, Atlantica Online, Dragon Nest and Vindictus. In case you've been living under a rock, that Vindictus picture is a quick and dirty Photoshop edit of Malthael, the main villain of Diablo III's Reaper of Souls expansion. To make things worse, the picture that Nexon used for the image was of Reaper of Souls' box art.

Just in case you need more convincing, here are some other pictures for reference:
