Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty should last around 40 hours
Fans of difficult soulslike games have been turning their eyes to Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, the next title developed by Team Ninja and for Koei Tecmo, known as Ninja Gaiden and Nioh. Now the developers have given more details on what to expect from the epic Chinese adventure.
In an interview with the Spanish magazine Vandal, producer Masaaki Yamigawa explained that the game will have a structure similar to Nioh, with a progression of linear levels, where the player advances through different stages until reaching a boss.
As with the predecessor game, the adventure should also take around 40 hours to complete. The executive did not explain whether this only applies to the main campaign, but that is likely to be the case. In Nioh’s case, completing the game with all the extra activities took approximately 90 hours.
Comparisons with the game are no accident. Koei Tecmo herself explained that the game is a “Nioh in China” at the time of its announcement. The new title, however, will introduce a jumping mechanic, which should affect both level exploration and combat. Also, the player won’t have to worry about a stamina bar, which should also provide a unique experience for the style.
Last week, the title won an unprecedented trailer, giving more details of the gameplay, which highlights Chinese martial arts, and the story, inspired by Chinese mythology.
Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty is slated for early 2023 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC (Steam). The game will also be available from day one to Game Pass subscribers.
