Project Mugen Is the Next PS5 Gacha Gunning for Genshin Impact's Crown 1

A brand-new open world gacha game is coming to PS5, and it looks pretty promising so far. Project Mugen will be officially unveiled at Gamescom next week, on 24th August, for Sony’s new-gen console alongside PC and mobile. It’s being developed by a studio named Naked Rain, which is a subsidiary of NetEase’s Chinese-based Thunder Fire team.

According to a post on Line, it’s being billed as an urban open world. You can check out the teaser website through here with some pretty chill audio, while there’s a few YouTube clips showing gameplay, including one character waiting for a train and another sequence involving a car chase. It looks really promising so far.

Ever since Genshin Impact utterly exploded, gacha game developers have been chasing HoYoverse’s crown. But this looks more like the unreleased Zenless Zone Zero so far, with its city-based setting and character action combat. Judging by the countdown on the website, we’ll see a lot more at Gamescom next week – and we’re looking forward to observing how it sets itself apart from other established gachas already available.
