9 Monkeys of Shaolin

Critically-acclaimed 9 Monkeys of Shaolin, an old-school beat ’em up ninja fighting game, is taking aim at the holiday season with two major updates. A New Game Plus mode will be available on Steam near the end of November, along with an update adding Scores Tables closer to the holidays.

“On behalf of our team I want to thank each and every one of you for playing 9 Monkeys of Shaolin,” said Dimitry Kachkov, head of Sobaka Studio. “Over the past month we have received a massive amount of awesome feedback from players, as well as numerous positive reviews from bloggers and media. Such powerful feedback is an incredible motivation that inspires us to set and achieve new goals. Right now we are working on a major update of 9 Monkeys of Shaolin which brings a number of improvements and new features that you’ve asked us for.”

Released in October 2020, 9 Monkeys of Shaolin follows the story of Chinese fisherman Wei Cheng as he seeks vengeance for the death of his friends and family who were slaughtered in a pirate raid. With his trusty battle staff, Wei Cheng adventures through medieval China taking on merciless fights with hordes of various enemies.
