Linn and SimoneEdit

An anon in Capcom Database removed the claim on Simone being based on Linn Kurosawa since there was no source, and that got me thinking. Is there a official source confirming the link between those two or was it all just fan speculation? Btw, my question here also goes for the claim on Shiba being based on Siva from Three Wonders.-- 07:21, January 19, 2018 (UTC)

Kinu Nishimura's comment on the Capcom Design Works artbook (as well as the guy's bio from Gamest coverage) explicitly state he was inspired by Siva from Three Wonders, with the little fireball following him being based on one of the three Options the player can get during gameplay (Akabi/Firestorm).
Simone's case is not as clear-cut, however. There's no official claim for them, but Simone's appearance and background is heavily inspired in Linn's, including both being cyborgs whose weapon of choice is explicity called a "Samurai Sword", using Kenpo combined with Qi/Ki and the special move mentioned in her CFN profile (Kattouha) is also the name of one of Linn's special moves (the spinning sword slash). A lot of the lines in the Japanese bio are straight copied from Linn's JP bio as well. So the inspiration is definitively there but is not officially adressed, probably due to Capcom not owning the rights for Linn's character. Hope that helps!
