First Gameplay Trailer Unveiled for Team Ninja’s, Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty

The latest project between publisher Koei Tecmo Games and developer Team Ninja is Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, a three kingdoms game not associated with the former’s flagship Dynasty Warriors mega-franchise. The companies have today shared their first gameplay trailer for the “supernatural epic” (available above), giving players a look at a darker Three Kingdoms China which is plagued by demons. On the way, they hope you will catch glimpses at the sword-based action gameplay focused around Chinese material arts, where they strive to present “actions [which] flow gracefully between offensive and defensive manoeuvres”.

While not too beneficial for those of us outside of Japan, Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja has also confirmed that the worldwide gameplay debut of Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty will take place during next month’s Tokyo Game Show – with attendees invited to Koei Tecmo’s booth to get some hands on action with the game.  In addition, the game’s producers, Fumihiko Yasuda and Masaaki Yamagiwa, will appear on the Koei Tecmo official TGS program and are planning to debut “a never-before-seen stage” during the broadcast.

Those who play the game will receive an original button badge, while those who clear the demo will also receive an original t-shirt (items available while supplies last). This indicates that the demo might not be set on a super-easy difficulty… perhaps.

In development by Team Ninja, Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty is in development for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Windows PC for an early-2023 release.
