Zelda Fans Protest, Smash PS4 Over Very Similar Chinese Game
Open-world game Genshin Impact has been described as an anime Breath of the Wild. Some Zelda fans in China are not happy about it. At all.
The Chinese-developed RPG’s first gameplay footage was shown recently at the China Joy gaming expo.
At China Joy, Zelda fans took photos of themselves holding their Switch consoles running Breath of the Wild flipping off the Genshin Impact display at the Sony booth. They’re upset that Sony would release such a similar-looking game.
“Despite this, we noted it was the most popular game at Sony China Joy booth with very long lines,” ZhugeEX tells Kotaku.
Still, as Hachima reports, one guy even destroyed his PS4 in protest.
I say, good on Sony. Since MS isn't in gaming to compete with games we have Sony and Nintendo to duke it out.
If Nintendo making a great game can inspire similar content on Sony's platform I say that's a win win.
lol at anyone getting mad at a competitor making a similar game to their rivals and acting as if it's a bad thing. Forza, MS's only AAA franchise this gen, wouldn't exist if it wasn't for copying Sonys Gran Turismo.
The game isn't even a straight up rip it's got multiple characters with different abilities
This goes back to the roots of what it means to have a competitor in gaming.
Game coming spring 2020.
Love it or hate it?
It may also be on PC not sure if the release would be the same as PS4. or not None the less, Day 1 for me.
