China is home to a lot of video game knockoffs and bootlegs due to their loose copyright laws; no company is safe from versions of games like this, especially not Nintendo. The most recent game to fall victim to being ripped off is Splatoon. A new Chinese mobile game, titled “Sepia Go!,” is almost an exact clone of the game, mimicking its hub area, character designs, stages, sound effects, music, and just about every single thing that makes Splatoon the game that it is.
The most unfortunate thing is that Android users living outside of China can download the game and play it for themselves. So we may see Nintendo try to put a stop to this game sometime soon if things get too out of hand. For now, you can check out images of the game in the gallery below and a gameplay video for the title above!
