Fantastic job Sony investing in Chinese market and getting exclusives from Chinese developers. PlayStation is going from strength to strength and this investement in Global talent will definitely pay off. No wonder PlayStations are the most popular consoles around the globe. Hats off Sony. Please invest in South Asian talent too.

looking at all the amazing games that are being made in the East Sony has made a very very solid investment.

It's really interesting to see China and South Korea being represented more by the worldwide Market.

It's good to see more developers to join in.

naruga142d ago (Edited 142d ago )

they need (Chinese) to run a long road ahead to reach the levels of Japanese game industry but this is a good start ...i m curious to see the quality of the finalised game

It's a good thing. Chinese culture is far more interesting than the Japanese.

The sleeping giant is awake and just despite their dodgy views on copyright law they will to better globally than Japan in my view. Give it time.

As for Sony, they are just releasing news now, but we know all the big publishers including MS have been courting China for years. So I'm sure there will be a lot of Chinese developed games across all platforms.

This certainly does look promising. Im not to familiar with the monkey king story but now im intrigued.

Korean games do seem to have a certain flair. While very samey between them least from a single publisher, they do seem to be interesting.

Couldn't agree more. Would love to play a game develop by south Asians providing their own style and telling their stories. It will be refreshing.

XanderZane141d ago

Game looks ok. I've seen several Monkey King movies, but have never seen or played any games based on Monkey King. We'll see how it turns out when it's released. Is this even coming to the West or is it China/Japan release only?

Major_Glitch141d ago

This is why Sony is the best. Sony invests in studios world wide and provides a wide variety of games.

weird looking game ^_^ but it looks cool.
Hope it comes to our region ..

_-EDMIX-_142d ago

I hope so too

I don't really know how many of these games are going to stay in the east.

Godmars290142d ago

What are the chances that this will be region locked?

TheTony316142d ago

The game looks really interesting. It's great to see Sony investing in different markets all over the world.

Fist4achin142d ago

Is this a successor to enslaved?!

Godmars290141d ago


More like Enslaved was based on Journey to the West, or the Tales of the Monkey King.

ecchiless141d ago

No is the successor of dragon ball ;)

Chevalier141d ago

Dragon Ball was also based on Journey to the West as well fyi.

ecchiless141d ago (Edited 141d ago )


/facepalm..... i know, i guess i should put something like /s after my comment, if you see the comment of godmars and the time you would know i was trying to poke fun with the stuff that is based on journey to the west, maybe i should put that awfull movie with jackie chan for reference...

TekoIie142d ago

Looks pretty cool so far. Hopefully they'll show a bit more later in the year.

Maybe a gameplay demo at PSX?
