Legend of Tianding Is an eye-catching side-scrolling action title for Switch and PC, with a story based on the actual “Taiwanese Robin Hood” Liao Tianding (1883-1909). Developer CGCG (and publisher Neon Doctrine) has provided an updated release date for November 1st, so it’s not a long wait.
The new trailer (above) introduces aspects of the story that resist colonial rule and some of the mechanisms that form the basis of core combat and action. It looks pretty smooth and hopefully will hold up well with the Switch version. Below is a blurb from the Steam page.
Fight colonial authorities stylishly with daggers, waist sashes, and fast-paced kung fu in tightly tuned technical combat. Perform advanced aerial combos, steal weapons from enemies, fly around the battlefield with waist sashes and grappling hooks, and infuse fear into the oppressor’s mind.
Take on incredible bosses like deadly prostitutes, greedy businessmen, and even military leaders. Each is guaranteed to challenge you with dynamic abilities and brutal attacks.
Explore the Dadaocheng area of Taipei City, which looked like it was in the early 1900s. Ride the colorful streets, board the speed-violating train, exit the dark sewers and escape in the style of retro Traditional Chinese cartoons.
