Wo Long Fallen Dynasty is a Three Kingdoms Nioh

Team Ninja and Koei Tecmo have announced Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, a brutal action game set during China’s Three Kingdoms era.

While Team Ninja fans have been holding out for news of Nioh 3, this is the next best thing. For a while now, Koei Tecmo has wanted to apply the Nioh action RPG template to a new setting – a setting the publisher has explored many times with both its Dynasty Warriors and Romance of the Three Kingdom series.

Wo Long Fallen Dynasty will take some creative liberties in revisiting this period in history. Much like Nioh it will combine flashy, martial arts combat with supernatural enemies and large scale battles.

Dynasty Warriors fans will have let out a little squeal upon seeing one of the game’s bosses, the unstoppable Lu Bu.

Here’s the official description:

Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty follows the dramatic, action-packed story of a nameless militia soldier fighting for survival in a dark fantasy version of the Later Han Dynasty where demons plague the Three Kingdoms.

Players fight off deadly creatures and enemy soldiers using swordplay based on the Chinese martial arts, attempting to overcome the odds by awakening the true power from within.

Wo Long Fallen Dynasty will launch in early 2023 and has so far been confirmed for Xbox consoles, PC, and Game Pass.
