Ravenscourt and Buka Entertainment have confirmed a release date for 9 Monkeys of Shaolin on Nintendo Switch.
You play as the Chinese fisherman Wei Chen in this an old-school beat ’em up set in medieval China, who seeks to avenge the death of his family and friends after a pirate raid slaughters his peaceful village.
Thankfully he knows the basics of ancient martial arts that were once mastered by legendary Shaolin monks, using his battle staff to take down hordes of enemies.
With more than 25 levels to battle your way through, you will use 10 different Chinese and Japanese polearms to pummel your enemies while calling on three combat styles that will see fight on earth, in the air, or use mysterious magic seals.
There are also perks and items to unlock, and the chance to team up with a friend in co-play to fight against the growing waves of enemies that charge in your direction.
9 Monkeys of Shaolin will release at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 16th October 2020.
