What is striking here isn’t that a Chinese company has decided create their own game, without consent, based on the popular Plants Vs. Zombies. What is amazing is that said infringe-o-rama was actually displayed at trade show as if it were something, you know, Shunxiang Technology came up with on the side. 

The folks at Arcade Heroes, of course, called PopCap, the maker of PvZ, who had this to say:

As suspected, the Plants vs. Zombies arcade cabinet shown in the pictures is completely unauthorized by PopCap.

 Well put.
