Project Shaolin is expected to be a new third-person action game exclusively for Xbox Series X | S, developed by Brass Lion and featuring music by Wu-Tang Clan.
Among the rumors that run on the new exclusive games for Xbox Series X | S, the mysterious Project Shaolin has also recently appeared , or a project that is still identified with a code name and has not been officially announced, but which according to some it would be a third-person action with soundtrack by the Wu-Tang Clan .
An in-depth study on the mysterious game in question came from Jez Corden , a journalist of Windows Central and a lost-time insider, who has always been considered an element rather close to the Microsoft environment, so much so that he can be reliable with regard to the rumors relating to Xbox, too. if it is in any case absolutely unofficial or conformable information, at the moment.
According to Corden, this mysterious Project Shaolin, which has emerged among the unannounced projects underway at Xbox Game Studios as an external collaboration, would be developed by Brass Lion Entertainment , a newly formed team from London and would be an action in third. person with a fantasy or fantastic setting in a general sense, it is not clear.
According to reports from Corden, the game would be “inspired by anime”, with a rather long single player campaign but also the presence of a cooperative multiplayer for 4 players, all focused on hand-to-hand combat, probably with martial arts, seen the code name used for the project.
There also seems to be a loot system and the presence of dungeons, therefore elements that refer in some way to the RPG, even if obviously as a hybrid, however the element that strikes most of this set of details is the fact that the soundtrack it should be made up of the Wu-Tang Clans, no less.
Jeff Grubb also seems to agree on the latter element, at least according to a bizarre exchange between the two on Twitter. However, the reference could also be based simply on Once Upon A Time in Shaolin, the 2015 album by the historic New York hip hop group as well as the fact that Shaolin philosophy and theosophy is recurrent in the collective’s works, so we don’t really know how take the matter. Project Shaolin would be one of the unannounced projects, along with “Belfry” , in development for the Xbox Series X | S according to Corden.
