Shuyan us a beautiful 2D and 3D narrative-focused action adventure game that aims to capture the essence of Kung Fu, as you embark on an epic story that that explores ancient Chinese traditions, moral choices and warring factions.
The combat in Shuyan features two different styles of Kung Fu – hard and soft – the ‘hard Kung Fu’ plays like the combat in the Batman Arkham games and if all about hitting your opponent hard, while the ‘soft Kung Fu’ is more reaction based and all about redirecting force. There are also two different combat modes – arena mode (as in the Batman games) and 1 v 1 2D fighter-stlye focus mode, so there’s plenty of variety to the combat.
As well as fun Kung Fu combat, Shuyan will also feature Tell-Tale-style cutscenes, in which you’ll make decisions that affect the narrative. It’s an interesting looking game, that looks set to offer a combat focused experience that has plenty of depth and an engaging narrative. Well worth checking out is you fancy unleashing some fists of fury.
