This video game is sponsored by the Communist Youth League and puts the player in the role of a Chinese fighting Japanese soldiers during the Second Sino-Japanese War. The League has deemed the product a "patriotic game" and will not include an option for players to play as Japanese units. Players select from 17 Chinese characters from all walks of life; they must defend the country during the Second Sino-Japanese War.[2] The game is generating a lot of hype from young Chinese gamers even before its release.[3] Violence level is reduced and fighting is only shown in miniature form. In addition to this, killing other soldiers is prohibited in the game. The time frame depicted in the game is from 1937 to 1945.[4]
