Koei Tecmo has shared the first gameplay trailer for Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, a new “masocore-thriller” from Ninja Gaiden and Nioh developer Team NINJA.
The trailer shows off a “dark Three Kingdoms plagued by demons, with glimpses into the sword-based action based on the Chinese martial arts, where actions flow gracefully between offensive and defensive maneuvers.”
Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty is currently in development for the Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and on PC via Windows and Steam. It is scheduled for release in early 2023 and will additionally be available as a day-one title on Xbox|PC Game Pass.
- Demons in the Kingdom
- A dark fantasy set during the chaotic Three Kingdoms period, the narrative vividly tells the tale of a militia soldier’s strenuous fight for survival during a Later Han Dynasty infested with demons. It’s madness in the Three Kingdoms like never before!
- Awaken the Power Within
- Defeat deadly enemies to boost morale and awaken the power from within! Overcome adversity through unique new strategies, including battle styles based on the “Five Phases”.
- Live by the Sword
- Renowned for ruthless strikes that can change the tide of battle in an instant, sword practitioners of the Chinese martial arts gracefully change pace as they shift between offensive and defensive maneuvers. Overwhelm opponents with a flurry of force in a series of intense and bloody battles while learning the precision and skill necessary to become a true master of the sword.
Koei Tecmo has also shared a new batch of screenshots that show off the game’s combat and visuals, including concept art:
