Today, KOEI TECMO America and developer Team NINJA challenge gamers to save a demon-infested Three Kingdoms from its twisted fate in the action-packed dark fantasy, Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty (buy now at Amazon).
Set in 184 AD, during the Later Han Dynasty, Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty features a land overcome by chaos and destruction. With an imperial dynasty on the verge of collapse, it’s up to a nameless militia solder to overcome adversity while fighting for survival in the turbulence of a Three Kingdoms plagued by demons and overrun by some of history’s most powerful and intimidating warriors, including Liu Bei, Cao Cao, and Sun Jian.
To overcome the odds, players will need to awaken their inner strength by mastering the fluid swordplay of the Chinese martial arts, cast Wizardry spells based on the Five Phases (elements), and even summon Divine Beasts when things appear most bleak.
“As someone who has been fascinated by the ‘Romance of the Three Kingdoms’ depicted in manga and movies since I was a child, I was thrilled to be able to fulfill my dream of creating a game about the Three Kingdoms period,” said Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty Producer, Fumihiko Yasuda.
“It is our hope that you will enjoy the intensity that is distinctive of Team NINJA games, as you utilize various strategies to challenge the powerful warriors and vicious demons that stand in your way.”
Added Development Producer Masaaki Yamagiwa, “We received a great deal of feedback from those who played the trial version of the game, and we have done our utmost to exceed their expectations.
“We hope that you will enjoy the exhilarating atmosphere of this Team NINJA creation, the challenge of confronting threats, and the joy that is sure to follow.”
In celebration of the game’s launch, KOEI TECMO released the Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty Original Sound Track across various music platforms (buy now at Amazon).
This contains all 53 songs from the game in their entirety, including numerous masterpieces by Kenichiro Suehiro, creator of the musical work for Re:Zero – Starting Life in Another World and GOLDEN KAMUY.
In addition, KOEI TECMO announced a collaboration between Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty and NARAKA: BLADEPOINT, a popular action game that has sold over 10 million copies worldwide and is available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass, Steam, and the Microsoft Store.
