January 12, 2017 — As Flying Tigers: Shadows Over China gets ready for international release, a decent number of translations are being prepared for implementation courtesy of today's Lingua Franca update. Soon, air-combat action gamers in Germany, France, Poland, Spain, China, Japan, Mexico, Taiwan, Russia, Brazil, and more countries, can take to the skies in their native language.
On a side note, the Lingua Franca moniker was chosen as a name for the final English update as the term fittingly means “a language or dialect used to make communication possible between people who do not share a native language.”
Launched on Steam’s Early Access program in August 2015, Flying Tigers: Shadows Over China is approaching final release.
Update details as follows:
About Flying Tigers: Shadows Over China
Currently in Early Access, Flying Tigers: Shadows Over China (FTSOC) is a historical air-combat action game based on the historical events of America’s secret volunteer squadrons that flew against Japan in the China-Burma-India (CBI) Theatre of World War 2 (and the Second Sino-Japanese War). Secretly recruited under President Roosevelt’s authority, the Flying Tigers were officially known as the “American Volunteer Group” and was largely the invention of retired military tactician and US-China airman Claire Lee Chennault.
About The Second Sino-Japanese War
The Second Sino-Japanese War (July 7, 1937 – September 9, 1945) was a military conflict fought primarily between the nationalist Republic of China and the Empire of Japan from 1937 to 1945 (the First Sino-Japanese War happened in 1894–95).
