Following the infamous NVIDIA leak, several reports in October 2021 stated that Xbox Game Studios was collaborating with a new developer to create an RPG called “Project Shaolin” connected to the Wu-Tang Clan.

Although the project’s details and release date were kept under wraps, it was reported that Project Shaolin would be a third-person melee-focused RPG including four-player cooperative play and some post-launch seasonal content. Along with incorporating loot, weapons, and gear from defeated enemies, the game was also rumored to heavily feature the Wu-Tang Clan members themselves in the music.

Now new reports from Insider Gaming confirm that ‘Project Shaolin’ is indeed in development at Brass Lion Entertainment, a studio established in 2019 by Manveer Heir. The game is presently in its Alpha stage and its gameplay centers on fast-paced third-person melee combat with particular emphasis on mixing music and combat.

It is said that there will be four different weapon types available to players, each with a unique and varied playstyle (single swords, dual swords, etc.). Moreover, the game also includes a vast selection of Wu-Tang Clan songs, the majority of which have been reworked for the game by DJ Just Blaze and producer.

Not only music, the Wu-Tang Clan will also be a part of the gameplay as all nine members will become playable, granting limited-time buffs like ultimate moves, increased health, and a lot more.

Insider Gaming’s Tom Henderson further highlighted the game will feature characters from historically marginalized communities and offer a “welcome space for all players.” Moreover, all the items and loot that will be gathered will integrate into the “Neighborhood,” the game’s main social hub where players can trade their stuff, enjoy some music, and flaunt their individual fashion choices with one another.

Further, based on the gameplay clip sent to Insider Gaming, “the animation style [is] somewhat similar to Into The Spider-verse. For example, one front flip with a slam attack contained 7-8 frames of animation.” Visually, the game adopts a bright, colorful, and anime-like art style, inviting players to freely explore a world described as “blurring the boundaries of reality.”

Now, despite the absence of an exact release date, reports suggest the game might be at least one or two years away from launch.

The very first news on Project Shaolin came from Jez Corden, an Xbox Two Podcast reporter covering video games. After this news, Jeff Grubb, a fellow video game reporter, disclosed on his program, Game Mess, that he had also heard similar reports. And now this one is the most recent coming almost after 2 years.

As a whole, what’s your take on the concept of a Wu-Tang Clan RPG arriving on Xbox platforms? Would you be interested in participating in that?
