Open-World RPG Project Mugen Announced

    New information unveiled at Gamescom 2023.

    A new open-world RPG title has been announced by NetEase Games and Thunder Fire Studio developer Naked Rain, titled Project Mugen. The game has been revealed for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, as well as Windows PC, iOS, and Android. 

    Naked Rain Announces Project Mugen

    Project Mugen is Naked Rain’s first studio title, and pre-registration is already live. The game is described as an “Urban Open-World RPG”. For those familiar with Genshin Impact, this title will operate similarly in the sense of gacha elements. In Project Mugen, urban legends become reality and humans live with supernatural elements on an Earth-like planet. Players are known as Espers, top investigators that confront anomalies and supernatural beings in order to protect the urban paradise they live in. 

    Here’s an overview of the game’s features: 

    • Urban, Open-World Setting – Explore a vast map that delivers a rich city life experience. From neon-lit nightlife to serene parks, every corner of the city holds a story. Engage in open exploration, scaling skyscrapers, diving into subways, and interacting with a dynamic environment that reacts to your every move.
    • Unique Combat Experience – Engage in team-based combat with four characters, each having different attributes that synergize with each other. Utilize environmental objects in battle and make use of the urban terrain to deal with monsters in various ways.
    • Captivating Artistic Style – Project Mugen is more than a game; it’s a visual journey. The art direction, a blend of modern aesthetics with ethereal touches, promises to captivate players at every turn.
    • Fast Paced Traversal and Vehicles – Every character has a basic movement skill such as parkour, swinging, or wall-climbing. Some characters also have a unique travel ability based on their individual identity, like riding a special war hammer. Players can also intercept and ride vehicles like cars in the city.
