Tencent’s Latest Trailer A Blatant Ripoff

There’s no such thing as copyright infringement in China.

Today’s video comes to us from Tencent, whose mobile game DouLuo DaLu‘s trailer looks a little too familiar. In fact, you can check out this side by side comparison with Final Fantasy XIV to see just how familiar it is.

The trailer of course is a near 1:1 replication, albeit with slightly worse quality. It’s not quite as bad as R2 Games and their habit of straight up pirating trailers from other games and using them to advertise their own, but it is still pretty sleazy. For Chinese companies however a shameless tracing job seems par for the course, even above standards compared to how many of their other games seem to operate.
