The Legend of Tianding is a Taiwanese side-scrolling beat-em-up coming to Game Pass

A new addition to the Xbox Game Pass roster has been announced with The Legend of Tianding, a side-scrolling beat-em-up that stars a Taiwanese folk hero.

Developed by Creative Games & Computer Graphics Corporation (CGCG Games) and published by Neon Doctrine, The Legend of Tianding is an action game that focuses on Kung Fu, snappy fighting mechanics, boss battles. As Liao Tanding, players are cast as a vigilante folk hero in the time of Japan’s colonial control of Taiwan. 

“Explore the dazzling streets of Colonial Japanese Taiwan in the early 20th century,” reads an official press release. “Battle the colonial authorities in style with a tanto, waist sash, and fast paced Kung Fu in tightly tuned technical combat. Execute advanced aerial combos, steal weapons from your enemies, use your waist sash and grappling hook to fly around the battlefield, and strike fear into the hearts of your oppressors.”

The game was launched back last November of 2021 on Steam and Nintendo Switch, so this will be the first time the game will be available on modern consoles. It currently holds an “overwhelmingly positive” rating on Steam that’s based on nearly 2000 reviews.
