Although the first phase of the campaign was introducing Cloud Song : Saga of Skywalker on social media, after 40 days we uploaded again about “What is Cloud Song?” to refresh the audience. Different from the first phase that discusses more on the game teaser and features available in the game, in the second phase it’s more technical like the system on how to play the game in a more advanced way.
