Monkey King: Hero Is Back, the PlayStation 4 exclusive being developed primarily for the Chinese market, has received a seven minute gameplay showcase. Recorded from the showfloor at this week’s ChinaJoy 2018 convention, the clip shows the eponymous hero running through lush tropical landscapes and attacking enemies.   

While the combat looks perfectly serviceable, the movement speed gives the impression that the main character is wading through molasses, and needs to be improved prior to release next year. For those of you who don’t know, this project is being created as part of a collaboration between Sony, Oasis Games, and movie maker October Media. A Western release is planned.
