Welcome back players! Let’s check out our daily game news！ A player who wanted to assassinate the two founders of the company with a knife was arrested on the Mihoyo company park. The suspect Gu, because he was dissatisfied with the company’s overseas promotion, wanted to wait for an opportunity to come to Shanghai with a knife to kill the two founders of the company: Liu and Cai then committed suicide by jumping off the building. According to Internet news, the cause of the incident was related to Mihoyo’s mobile game “Honkai Impact 3”.
On April 25, the Red Star Capital Bureau asked the police station where the Mihoyo company park is located to verify the matter. The police officer of the police station said that the case has not yet been announced to the public, and there will be a police report later.
Specifically, “Honkai Impact 3” has launched a special plot on the external server, which revolves around elements such as “Bunny Girl”. In the promo, characters such as “The Strongest Valkyrie” are all wearing bunny girl costumes. Many players believe that this plan is neither online in the national service, nor do they want their favorite characters to dance in bunny costumes, which hurt their feelings towards the characters.
On April 22, Mihayou also apologized for this. Said that “the “Honkai Impact 3″ external service activities are indeed improper. I have improperly controlled the setting of the established role. I apologize to the player and promise that it will not appear again in the future.” The player was dissatisfied with its overseas promotion and wanted to wait for an opportunity to come to Shanghai to kill the company’s two founders Liu and Cai with a knife and prepare to commit suicide by jumping off the building. Gu’s temporary residence in Foshan City used the Internet to check the identity and photos of the two founders of the company: Liu and Cai, and purchased two knives through the Internet. However, Gu was arrested on the spot in the Mihayou company park.
According to PCgamer, the AR mobile game “Witcher: Monster Slayer” will be available for Android early access at the end of April. “The Witcher: Monster Slayer” is independently developed by Spokko Studios under CDPR and is a derivative work of the “Witcher” series. Players will fight monsters in first-person AR battles.
Sony registered the trademark “Soho Engine” for the first time in Europe in 2020, and has now registered the trademark in Switzerland and New Zealand. Sony has not announced the specific meaning of the trademark. “Soho Engine” may be an unannounced game engine, or it may be related to Sony’s upcoming PS5 VR device.
“Soho” is a block in New York, USA, so it reminds people of the new work of the first-party game “Marvel’s Spider-Man” set in New York, USA. The new work may be developed using “Soho Engine”. “Soho Engine” may also be a game engine specially developed for PS5 platform VR games, or it may be a new game called “Soho Engine”.
That’s all for today and see you next time.
