Role-Playing Games Week Recap 11/1/2021
Mysterious project Shaolin, more details on Skyrim Anniversary, and another Final Fantasy remaster.
Microsoft Project Shaolin details
A new RPG coming exclusively to Microsoft is being developed by Brass Lion Studios. This new studio is going to be run by some of the people that have brought you Skyrim, Fallout, Mass Effect, and Sleeping Dogs.
Reportedly it is to be a first-person fantasy RPG with perhaps an oriental setting. With the popularity of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice I can see why Microsoft would like to get a piece of that pie. And it is also rumored that the Wu-Tang clan has been tapped to help do the music. It’s unknown if they will be the sole artist to contribute or one of many.
Could this be an anime game? Could this be something to compete with Sekiro? We shall see as hopefully more details will reveal this new mystery project at Microsoft.
