Hold onto your controllers, gamers! Shuyan Saga, the action-packed martial arts fantasy, is rolling out on PS4/PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Oh, and PC players? No FOMO for you. A free update also drops today, leveling up the PC version with all the console newness.
Mastering Kung Fu in an Epic Tale
Stepping into a world steeped in ancient Chinese martial arts lore, you’ll follow Princess Shuyan as she breaks the mold and turns into a Kung Fu disciple. Her mission? Stop the wicked Guer horde from wrecking the Five Kingdoms. This isn’t just some reskinned brawler; you’re looking at an authentic Kung Fu narrative here, guided by the voice talents of Canadian actress Kristin Kreuk (known for Smallville and Beauty and the Beast).
Art and Combat: A Symphony of Skills
Shuyan Saga melds two worlds: 1,400+ meticulously crafted art panels and 3D action combat. With over 300 combat animations, all of these moves come straight from the real-world Kung Fu techniques of Shifu Longfei Yang, a master of Shanxi Praying Mantis Style.
Behind the Canvas: Daxiong and Aaron Tsang
And who’s providing that eye-candy? None other than Chinese comic book maestro Daxiong, famed for his work on Dark Horse’s Star Wars comic and Justice League for DC. The visuals get backed up by an original score, with Aaron Tsang wielding the composing wand.
What’s Fresh in the Console Version?
But wait, there’s more. The console release spices things up with brand-new story content and a tournament mode dubbed Jade’s Dungeon Descent. In this, Jade goes rogue, ignoring her Master’s wisdom to hunt a demon that could liberate her people. It’s a descent into chaos, filled with traps and challenges, but will Jade triumph?
Polyglot Paradise: Multiple Language Support
The console launch also polishes the combat controls and diversifies the language options, throwing in French, Italian, German, Spanish, Brazilian, and Korean.
PC Players Get Love Too
As for the PC players, that free update isn’t just a patch; it’s an overhaul. You’re getting all the console enhancements and previously released DLC, no extra dime needed.
