Are you ready to experience the Legend of the Monkey King? Unruly Heroes is now available on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC!
Coming direct from Magic Design Studios, Unruly Heroes was first talked up with a Q1 2019 release in mind. Well, we’re in Q1, and we’re always up for a new release – which is a bit of luck because Unruly Heroes has now arrived.
Released on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC (Steam), Unruly Heroes has been inspired by the timeless 16th century Chinese novel Journey to the West. This will see players taking control of four unlikely heroes, giving the opportunity to effortlessly switch between Wukong the Monkey King, Sanzang the Sleepy Monk, Kihong the Greedy Pig, and Sandmonk the Sensitive Brute.
Travelling towards the West in search of the scattered remnants of the Sacred Scroll is the aim of this group of heroes and whether you decide to join them in a solo form, or prefer to hit up a bit of local or online cooperative play, you can expect to encounter a diverse lineup of enemies to battle within a colourful fantasy world.
“We want to invite players to be part of some fantastic universes,” says Creative Director Yang Lu. “We spent a year and a half elaborating, defining, searching for, and shaping the kind of game/story/experience we wanted to offer. It turns out we are video game crafters!” “Journey to the West is a wonderful story,” continues Lu “but I noticed it wasn’t really known in the West.” Set against lushly illustrated environments in a hand-drawn artstyle, Unruly Heroes makes for an epic adventure diving into the essence of what it takes to be a hero.
The key features of Unruly Heroes on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC are…
- Experience the Legend of the Monkey King solo or cooperatively with up to four players in local gameplay.

The sacred scroll preserving harmony in our world has been torn up and scattered to the winds. Now, strange and terrifying creatures are sowing discord and chaos throughout the land. Inspired by the famous Chinese novel “Journey to the West,” Unruly Heroes tells the adventure of four totally opposed, implausible heroes who must collect all the scroll fragments and travel to fantastical worlds to restore balance… or die trying! Set in lush, lively environments, the game is a playful version of the tale, and features a mix of jumping, climbing, unexpected challenges, and intense combat as you face a horde of enemies and memorable boss characters. During this odyssey, the gang has no choice but to join forces and finally understand what it takes to be a hero.
