Sony is making an adaptation of the 2015 animated movie Monkey King: Hero Is Back for the PlayStation 4, and it will be distributed globally by Oasis Games. Announced as part of the platform holder’s ChinaJoy 2017 press conference, the project represents a collaboration between the Japanese giant, developer HexaDrive, and rights holder October Media.

The game’s being billed as a “monster slaying adventure”, where you’ll play as either the titular Monkey King or Jiang Lieur, and it will follow the plot of the film with new chapters interspersed throughout. This is such a big deal in China that the manufacturer’s even plotting a commemorative console bundle to celebrate the launch – and there will be a standalone PlayStation VR experience, too.

You can catch the game’s debut trailer embedded above. Has this project tickled your fancy? Look to the East in the comments section below.
