Buka Entertainment and Sobaka Studios are excited to announce the launch of their old-school, ninja fighting beat ’em up game, 9 Monkeys of Shaolin. They have brought the fight to PC (Steam), Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4. The Steam version is $19.99, while the console versions are all $29.99, according to the press release.

9 Monkeys of Shaolin offers single player as well as coop play (both local and online). As you travel your road to victory, you’ll earn unlockable perks, items, and fighting styles in the story of a Chinese fisherman in medieval China. His name is Wei Cheng, and he is out to get revenge for the deaths of his family and friends, who were slaughtered when pirates raided the peaceful fishing village where they lived.

 

The developers have packed 9 Monkeys of Shaolin with three unique fighting styles, over 25 levels, 10 types of Chinese and Japanese polearms, and more. This hardcore brawling game aims to be an old-school style beat-em up in the vein of classic SNES or SEGA games in the genre. You may also know these developers as the people behind the hardcore brawler, REDEEMER. Dmitry Kachkov, Founder of Sobaka Studio, had this to say about the game finally being out to fans:

We’re extremely happy that this day has finally arrived! Gamers across the globe can dive into the legend of Shaolin monks starting now! It’s been a long and exciting three-year journey and we used all the experience we had earned to create a unique game full of adventures, challenges and that distinct warm atmosphere of good old-fashioned kung fu action movies.”

Lastly, here are a few screenshots showing off the game’s beautiful art style:

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called Pre-Computer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode (a bare-bones version of BASIC) which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer, which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the Unity 3D game engine (a powerful and easy-to-use engine) and learning 3D modelling in Blender.

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
