Did you think Square Enix was the only company producing HD-2D video games? Well, you were wrong. Xiameng Studio, a Chinese company based in Shanghai, has in fact presented Codename: Wandering Sword. It is a role-playing video game that heavily harks back to the graphic style used by Square Enix in titles of the caliber of Octopath Traveler, Triangle Strategyand in the near future remake of Live A Live for Switch.
The work of the Chinese studio falls into the cauldron of wuxia works, that particular oriental narrative genre centered on the journey of personal and martial growth of a hero often of humble origins. Codename: Wandering Sword will be no exception since he will tell the story of a young man who, despite himself, finds himself involved in a clash between seven rivals.
The game will focus on the exploratory phases allowing the player to travel through typically oriental scenarios, while it will propose a double combat system, both turn-based and in real time.
Codenamen: Wandering Sword doesn’t have a release date, but will be available soon on PC via Steam.
