Project Mugen No Longer Planned for PS4

    PS5 version is still on the way.

    During Tokyo Game Show 2023, NetEase Games and developer Naked Rain shared a new developer diary video for “urban open-world” RPG Project Mugen. After the release of the video, NetEase Games confirmed that Project Mugen is no longer planned for PS4.

    Project Mugen is Naked Rain’s first studio title, and pre-registration is live at the game’s official website. A release date has not been announced, but fans may pre-register to get updates via email. One of the game’s most crucial updates did not come to pre-registrants in a new email, however.

    Project Mugen PS4 Version is No Longer Planned

    NetEase Games clarified to Gematsu that the PS4 version of Project Mugen is now longer planned. Project Mugen will release for PS5, Android, iOS, and PC. Reasoning for the change in plans was not revealed, but its safe to assume this may be due to the platform not being viable for live-service titles in the future due to the imminent end of its lifecycle.

    Lastly, 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.
