Described as a “monster-slaying adventure,” players will be able to play as Monkey King and experience the story of the movie alongside new chapters and enemies, as well as unique levels. The game is set for release in early 2019, and will combine the global popularity of the Monkey King character and film with a visually rich and compelling monster-slaying interactive experience, making it the first truly authentic Chinese IP title born from the collaboration of Chinese and Japanese teams.
The premise of the game is the same as that of the movie, with the story beginning with the encounter of the Monkey King and Jiang Liuer. In this adventure, the Monkey King, Jiang Liuer, and Pigsy will set off in a journey battling various monsters with wit and bravery, forming an unbreakable bond of friendship in the process. Although based on the movie, the game will add in new anecdotes and features that will flesh out the characters and give them more depth. Players will be able to experience the epic adventure of Monkey King through the deeply immersive gameplay through PS4.
