Tower of Fantasy has aggressively advertised itself as the “Genshin Killer“, seems to be hell-bent on making as much drama as they possibly can to make sure they don’t get that title. From the unlimited SSR bug to stealing assets from mihoyo’s other game Honkai Impact and using them in their own promotional videos and even copying game reviews from their supposedly rival game Genshin Impact, they have done it all. This time Tower of Fantasy plagiarised video content and used it as their own promotional video.
Tower of Fantasy finding new ways to hamper their game
Learning from their previous mistake, this time they decided to plagiarise content for their promotional video from a relatively small creator, maybe in hopes that no one would find out, that didn’t quite work in their favor this time.
The said Tower of Fantasy’s video had a very striking resemblance with the plagiarism Video in question, where action sequences were seemed to be a direct copy, from both the videos you can see that the character in the video was running and doing various actions like jumping, falling and climbing, in the exact same order. Slightly close observation can easily tell that the creator’s video was plagiarised.
Original Creator accused Tower of Fantasy of using plagiarised video
The original creator of the plagiarised video had voiced their complaint about the Tower of Fantasy plagiarising in a tweet. Unlike last time when the company was caught using Honkai’s assets and they brushed it off by saying it was outsourced to a third-party who made the mistake. Wonder what excuse they will have this time.
Tower of Fantasy certainly had the potential to become Genshin Impact’s rival, with their game’s concept, however, the chances of that happening is reducing after each blunder they make.
