Flying Tigers: Shadows Over China is a historical air-combat action game to re-create air-battles of American pilots secretly flying combat for China in World War 2.

Get ready to swoop the skies of Southeast Asia as Flying Tigers: Shadows Over China  reawakens a diverse set of historical WW2 air-battles, including the Japanese Christmas-raids on Rangoon in 1941, the Flying Tigers’ first combat over Kunming in China, the Battle of the Salween Gorge, “Hump” escort missions over the Himalayas, the Invasion of Malaya, and the Japanese conquest of Burma, to name a few.

Secretly recruited under President Roosevelt’s authority in 1941, the Flying Tigers were officially known as the "American Volunteer Group”. The clandestine unit was commanded by Claire Lee Chennault, a resigned US military-aviator who had been advising the Chinese Air Force since 1937.


Flying Tigers: Shadows Over China will be available on the Xbox Store in 12 languages: English, Spanish, French, Polish, German, Portuguese-Brazil, Chinese (simplified and traditional), Russian, Italian, Czech, Turkish, and Japanese.

An Xbox One release date will be announced in the near future.

Key Features:

  • RARELY DEPICTED AIR-BATTLES OF WORLD WAR 2: Action-packed single-player campaign recreates the clandestine operations of the American Volunteer Group in fighter, bomber, gunner, reconnaissance, torpedo, and night missions.
  • APPROACHABLE TAKE ON AIR-COMBAT: Features TrazerTime™ slow-motion firing, arcade-like combat maneuvers, sim-style pitch & roll controls, moody weathers (including thunderous monsoons, beautiful sunsets, and misty dawns), 20+ Allied and Japanese planes, and more!
  • MULTIPLAYER FOR 2-16 PLAYERS: Xbox One leaderboards eternalize players’ online rankings across five battle modes! Coordinate devastating air-attacks in TEAM DOGFIGHT while providing cover for your comrades, outdo all enemies using powerful rocket weaponry in ROCKET BATTLE VS, or take to the skies and “Capture the Flag” in the FLAGBUSTERS mode.
  • FLY IN COCKPIT OR THIRD-PERSON MODE: Soar through the skies of Southeast Asia in third-person or cockpit view in a variety of American, British, Russian/Chinese, and Japanese aircraft.
  • STRIKING RENDITION OF THE FAR EAST: Faithful environments, beautiful graphics, booming sound effects and an epic-orchestral soundtrack create a lasting impression of the China-Burma-India theatre.
