In a 13 minute gameplay trailer Chinese developer Game Science Studio revealed Black Myth: Wukong. Set in a world containing chinese mythological creatures. It protagonist, the Monkey King appears to be fighting their way through these hostile myths. The gameplay itself seems to be a mix of God of War and Nioh inside a very pretty backdrop. The developers have said that it is themed around ‘Journey to the West‘; a 16th Century Chinese Novel detailing the trials a monk undertakes in a pilgrimage West. Western audiences may know it better as Arthur Waley’s Monkey.
Game Science Studio confirmed on their website (brush up on your chinese) that Black Myth: Wukong will be coming to PC and ‘mainstream consoles’. So, considering this is pre-alpha footage, it’ll most probably be next-gen. They’ve also not given a release date. It does look interesting though and we’re looking forward to seeing how it shapes up. It will also be interesting to see more of Chinese mythology.
