Have you ever witnessed the storm of controversy surrounding the release of Genshin Impact? The game was accused of plagiarizing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and faced severe backlash. Players went as far as smashing their PS4 consoles to protest Sony’s involvement with the game during the Chinajoy 2019 showcase. Now, brace yourselves, because another mobile game that closely resembles Genshin Impact has entered the scene.
The Legend of Neverland: A Familiar Setting and Characters
