Beautiful action-platformer Unruly Heroes coming to PS4 this monthPlatforms: Sony PlayStation 4
Magic Design Studios are finally bringing their debut release, Unruly Heroes, an action-platformer retelling the Chinese folk-tale Journey to the West, to the PlayStation 4 on May 28th.
Unruly Heroes was originally released on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on January 23rd of this year. The upcoming PS4 release will feature brand new content exclusive to PlayStation 4 owners for a limited time. The Challenge Update for PS4 owners will deliver two new difficulty modes, new character skins, a photo mode, and gameplay and control changes.
The stunning, hand-drawn title sees players control four distinct characters: Wukong the Monkey King, Sanzang the Sleepy Monk,. Kihong the Greedy Pig, and Sandmonk the Sensitive Brute as they face "an ever growing horde of enemies and challenging platforming puzzles".
Yang Lu, CEO of Magic Design Studios and Creative Director of Unruly Heroes explains that the team wanted to share the "wonderful story" of Journey to the West with those who may not be familiar with the tale: "There are elements of the original Chinese folk tale in many popular manga and anime properties but the true origin of the story has generally remained unknown - we wanted to change that".
Sebastien Delord, the Lead Designer on Unruly Heroes spoke about bringing the game to PS4, "On the surface, Unruly Heroes can be mistaken for a traditional platforming game but we really hope with the launch of the PS4 version we will be able to connect with a new audience who will really understand the amazing challenge that our game has to offer for lone players, groups of adventurers or those who like to go head-to-head against friends".
Unruly Heroes launches on PlayStation 4 on May 28th, with PlayStation Plus members able to get a 20% discount on the game for one week after launch.
