Santa Monica, CA – July 21, 2017. Playing Forward and MK Games welcome you to the World of The Monkey King! The Monkey King: The Adventure Begins, the first Augmented Reality (AR) mobile game of its kind, will be available to Beta Testers beginning Tuesday, July 25.
Based on the legendary Chinese character and popular motion picture franchise The Monkey King, this exciting 3-D 360-degree “battle game” will offer play in two formats –3-D Augmented Reality and Standard 2-D.
The Beta version offers a preview experience in which players can bring to life
3-Dimensional characters and pit them against each other on any flat service. Using each character’s special skills, players seek to defeat their opponent and move up through challenging environments taken right out of the pages of the classic legend. These bloodless battles can be controlled and viewed from any angle or point of view using our 360-degree AR engine.
At launch the game features Sun Wukong (The Monkey King) and three other characters inspired by the classic Chinese tale – The Buffalo King, The Jade Emperor and the Rock Monster. More classic legendary characters will join “the cast” along with new environments in frequent updates in coming months.
The Monkey King: The Adventure Begins Beta is available in both iOS (Apple) and Android (Google) versions.
