Chinese developer rips off everyone in League of Legends clone

We all know that China isn’t afraid of a little copyright infringement now and again. This is the country with actual stores that are rip offs of Western ones. However, fake Apple devices is one thing, but copying League of Legends in almost every way possible? Adding heroes that bear a striking resemblance to Shrek, Wall E and Angry Birds? Now you’ve gone too far.

It’s called 300 Heroes and it features only one gameplay mode at the moment 10 vs 10, making the beta footage coming out of it quite frenetic. The game’s definitely a lot slower though, as character health bars are whittled away in minuscule amounts.

Then again, would you do much damage if this was one of your special abilities?

Yea, that’s Shrek – “Green Ogre” in the game – throwing a giant version of Donkey

As mentioned, Wall-E also makes an appearance, as well as several big characters from the manga, Naruto. As you might expect as well – considering the entire Summoner’s Rift has been nabbed, many, many League of Legends heroes make an appearance too – though often with a reskin.

This game is only available in China and is likely to stay that way, as trying to release it anywhere else would cause a flurry of lawsuits. That said, Chinese run Tencent is a majority owner of Riot Games, the company behind League of Legends, so it may yet have something to say about this.

KitGuru Says: While only in beta and only technically available in China, you can get in on the action if you really want to play as Wall-E and punch a reskinned Ezreal, you can learn how here.
