TGS 2023 Project Mugen Trailer Showcases Gameplay

NetEase and Naked Rain revealed a new gameplay trailer for the upcoming open world RPG, Project Mugen. The game was previously announced in August 2023. While it does not yet have a release date, pre-registration is open now.

The trailer shows off several of the game’s environments, including dockyards at sunset, clubscenes at night, and a brief glimpse of an ominous hallway full of grasping hands and smashed mirrors. The game’s technical director also described how the team used procedural generation combined with handmade areas to build the large city environment quickly in the video.

Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the trailer is the traversal system in Project Mugen, which includes Spiderman-like web-swinging and wall-running alongside riding in vehicles, swimming, and climbing. Called the 3C system, Naked Rain promised in the footage that it will allow players to switch between different movement types, as shown when a character switches mid-swing into riding a summoned vehicle that boosts off after hitting the ground.

NetEase also publishes Naraka: Bladepoint, which got a Nier series crossover event back in August 2023. Project Mugen is one of several games being shown off at the company’s booth at TGS 2023.

Project Mugen is currently without a release date, but is set come out on the PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices.
