In what is a scarily common practice on the Chinese smartphone app stores, a Legend of Zelda knock-off game has become available to download, promising the thrills and adventure of titles like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
It wasn't too long ago that we reported on the unwelcome return of a Splatoon rip-off, but this new one takes things to a whole new, half hysterical, half upsetting level. As you can see, the game's leading artwork features images from both Breath of the Wild and Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition, and is even called "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Adventure Journey" - a very catchy name as we're sure you'll agree.
You won't be surprised to learn that the in-game footage, which somehow claims to be a “high quality recreation of the ‘PC Version'” (whatever that could possibly mean), looks nothing like the Zelda games we're all familiar with. Here are some screenshots for you to admire.
At the time of writing, the game seems to have disappeared from the app store, although you can check it out in all of its original glory through this cached link.
We think Nintendo's sales figures might still be safe, but what do you think? Feel free to share your anger, disgust, giddy uncontrollable laughter, or whatever else you may be feeling below.
