Ah yeah, you are right, I haven't read the beginning of the doc, anyway what I wrote is also true, someone phoned him 20 and more times asking for that. Anyway, can a lawsuit delay the game?
no, there will be no lawsuit before the game's release. what can he sue them for? using his likeness in a game trailer? konami has not made any money off of TPP. there is literally nothing to sue for. again, if konami's legal team thinks there is even a remote chance of a legal battle after the release of the game, they will change the character model pre-release
They don't need to though, it's not Konami's fault the actor they used looks like him.
that's not necessarily true if the intent was to create a character like this guy.
either way it's moot
