Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Asia, October Media, and Oasis Games announced Monkey King: Hero is Back The Game for PlayStation 4 during Sony’s ChinaJoy 2017 press conference.
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.
Agreed 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.
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 all....at 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.
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?
This is why Sony is the best. Sony invests in studios world wide and provides a wide variety of games.
"Acche din" (Good days) for Playstation @ modi ji :D :D
Lol :D indeed achay din for PlayStation 😂
The game looks really interesting. It's great to see Sony investing in different markets all over the world.
Is this a successor to enslaved?!
*facepalm* More like Enslaved was based on Journey to the West, or the Tales of the Monkey King.
No is the successor of dragon ball ;)
Dragon Ball was also based on Journey to the West as well fyi.
@Che /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...
Looks pretty cool so far. Hopefully they'll show a bit more later in the year. Maybe a gameplay demo at PSX?
i reMember seeing a bunch of really awesome sony backed games produced by China developers... i wonder when those will land?
I hope this game makes a Journey to the West.
this game is gonna go huge in asia especially in china due to how popular monkey magic is.Ive watched the CGI movie and it was pretty good,so having the original movie makers involved will only do wonders for the game cant wait
what i said pre,post E3? they strongly edited they show because xbox was totally flop,so they don't need it to push it. the same time i was surprised that they don't showed any China developer,game and etc...and this is just one game,there are plenty more to come from their partnership with china developers.
The Beast is already here.
Looks great to my. I love the whole history of China. I love the buildings in China, i mean the Great Wall, the Forbitten City, the Tempels ..everything. Gonna buy this game. And i read in the orginal source they they are bringing it also in the west.
agreed. Chinese historical settings are seriously under represented in video games... while we always hear people hope for assassin's creed with Japan setting, i always thought it would be more interesting if they used China ( side scrollers don't count dammit!).
Love Chinese history.
Not bad at all. Gotta keep an eye out for this.
This is good, real good.
This actually looks fun
Sun Wukong is OP
Looks better than the movie it's based on. Though I hope the monkey king is still voiced by Jackie Chan in the finished version and I have that option with subs. Or chan does the English dub so I can fanboy and understand what he is saying.
Always loved the monkey king and just recently watched the second entry to Stephen Chow's Journey to the West. This game looks good!
Love that version. A Chinese Odyssey 1 and 2 were great!
It is good to see Sony co-developing with Chinese devs and hopefully, there will be many such colloborations. The game looks fun. Monkey King is popular in Asia and I expect this game will get some weighty attention from Sony with regard to pushing it globally. I certainly hope the game is released in the West. Oh, and it is yet another exclusive for PS4. Keep em' coming!
DMC meets Jackie Chan - I hope?
What, no Xberts in here calling this a shitty indie game, or dweeby, or what ever they usually say? That's refreshing, cool to see China adding their two cents to the PS4 platform.
Bring it sony.
Looks really good! I would like to have more chinese games on the market. Chinese culture is so enticing.
@ 1:57. I didn't realize i needed something like this in my life until now.
That animation is smooth if that's how it turns out in the end.
PlayStation Experience 2017 in Asia is going to be awesome.
Finally a game about Son Wukong!
Watched the movie on Netflix, so pretty interested in this game :)
That Jackie Chan esque chair move was slick
That looks pretty damn cool
