Which isn't to say we're not still keen on the game, because we most definitely are. But as far as "story trailers" go, this one doesn't really give us much to go on, other than there are big battles, big monsters and a bit of dancing. But boy, does this look like a fun jaunt through a dark fantasy Ancient China from a studio known to deliver the action goods.

Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty features a storyline set in the Later Han Dynasty of the Three Kingdoms, with the combat and cut scenes supervised by the game’s Cinematics Director, Kenji Tanigaki, the famed action director of the popular “Rurouni Kenshin” movie series. These powerful action scenes are at the center of KOEI TECMO’s latest trailer, showcasing the game’s dramatic storyline. The original story follows a nameless militia soldier who is faced with a conspiracy surrounding a potent elixir with mysterious powers. Along the way, the soldier not only encounters countless demons and monsters, but famous warlords and military masterminds from history, including Liu Bei, Cao Cao, and Sun Jian.
Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty is scheduled to drop March 3 for PC, PS4, PS5 and Xbox family of devices. It'll also be available via Game Pass on day one for Xbox and PC.

Stay tuned for more as we have it as we close in on the game's release.

In moving away from its more traditional game settings involving samurai or samurai culture, Team NINJA reached out to a film director for its upcoming action-adventure title, Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, which is loosely set around the Three Kingdoms era in Chinese history.

"We didn't have any development experience with Chinese weaponry or martial arts," revealed game director, Fumihiko Yasuda.

In fact much of the entire Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty experience will be very different to the studio's previous efforts.

"The time period and locations are different, so obviously the art and worldview are big differences," Yasuda told us. "But I think the action is the biggest difference. Nioh is samurai action while Wo Long has Chinese martial arts action at the game's core, and each game is quite different in terms of the system and how it feels.

"Up until now, Team NINJA has developed many ninja and samurai action games, so we've had the involvement of a movie director who has deep knowledge of Chinese martial arts and action, and in our motion capture sessions had someone who is able to use Chinese weaponry. And on top of that, we've arranged it in a way that ensures that it feels like an action game."
