Koei Tecmo released the first game trailer for the upcoming Team Ninja Soulslike title Wu Long: Fallen DynastyShows the time period of the game’s Three Kingdoms and martial arts battles. If there’s anything you want to see in the footage, fans of the genre may be in a very special place when the game releases next year.
The trailer for the game was first revealed during Gamescom, and it gives us our first look at the aggressive, fast-paced combat that seems to be steering FromSoftware’s Sekiro More than the previous work of Team NINJA. By its looks, a few things change with this new title in its goal to differentiate itself, though, such as removing the genre’s classic stamina gauge, which should give players more freedom to react quickly to enemy attacks. The footage shows there’s no shortage of dribbling techniques, including vertical tactics that seem to interrupt enemies in the process.
Development Producer Masaaki Yamagiwa says that while the game will feature more than 10 types of traditional weapons for melee combat IGN Players can also expect to discover and use a variety of magical spells – the game takes on magic – and many mythical divine beasts that can be summoned to aid the player in battle. We got a glimpse of the Crimson Bird raining fire on a bunch of enemies in the trailer, and it definitely looks like a handy hack tool when you find yourself overwhelmed.
