Fans of Kung Fu cinema rejoice! Kings of Kung Fu is a love letter to classic chopsocky flicks designed for all skill levels of gamers.
The story is a simple one -- A mysterious fighter, Red Ronin, has challenged his fellow cinema stuntmen to prove their worth in a series of one on one fights across various sets on the studio lot for a chance to star in their own movie. While they may not be the stars of their films, they must be just as skilled and tough as the famous stars they fill in for. This little tournament will prove just how good they are and who is the next star among them.
Choose to take on the role of one of 12 martial arts masters as you fight to show your style cannot be beat. Each fighter’s style is based on actual moves inspired by martial arts cinema where their bodies are their weapons. Fine-tuned in diverse and unique methods of physical destruction, each style brings with it 100’s of attacks, counter attacks, blocks and grapples ranging from your basic kicks and punches to advanced attacks and combo chains that can devastate any opponent.
Selectable fighters include Tao Lung the Chinese Boxing Master, Chen Fu the master of Drunken Style, Ron Jones and his fierce Shorun-ryu Karate, Hou Feng with his wild and deadly Monkey Style, Lo Wei the Shaolin Master, John Deux is top of his game in Kickboxing, Ju Mao a champion of Hapkido and the Muay Thai Master Chang Tai. Now entering into the tournament as of the latest update are four new martial arts masters: The White Stallion master of Shotokan Karate, Lo Chi the grappling brawler, master of both Karate and Ninjitsu Ken Suguri, and Yuen Wong with his mix of Wing Chun and various Kung Fu styles.
A note from the developer, Jae Lee Productions:
"Kings of Kung Fu is mainly a love letter to kung fu cinema firstly and a casual to mid core fighter secondly. The game is a small, indie passion project aimed to provide fun while honouring the films I have always loved. Feedback from the community will help make this a better game. I don't want to give the false impression that it will become a fighter for the hardcore fighting game community. I appreciate the support and feedback and will continue to update the game with your feedback in mind."
