There’s a new 3D donghua that fans of the action and fantasy genre will definitely want to check, and that is Yong Sheng or also known as Immortality, a rather generic title that may bring generic xinxia and wuxia story but is still worth checking out. Nonetheless, Yong Sheng looks fantastic based on its available teasers trailers and it boasts some amazing martial-arts moves that we often see from any wuxia films and series from China.
