We've got another upcoming Xbox Game Pass addition to share! It's been announced that The Legend of Tianding will be arriving on Xbox and Game Pass in just a few short weeks - the date is seemingly November 1st, 2022, although there's been some suggestion that it could arrive a day earlier on October 31st instead.
The Legend of Tianding is a sidescrolling action game with a focus on Kung Fu, challenging you to "rob the rich, feed the poor, and fight for justice in the streets of early 20th century Taipei as Taiwan’s legendary outlaw".
"The Legend of Tianding is a sidescrolling action game about Liao Tianding, the legendary Taiwanese Folk Hero. Explore the dazzling streets of Colonial Japanese Taiwan in the early 20th century."
"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."
While the release will mark the first time The Legend of Tianding has appeared on Xbox, the game first launched back in 2021, where it currently holds an "overwhelmingly positive" rating on Steam based on almost 2000 reviews.
Our sister site Nintendo Life also reviewed the game for Switch at the time, giving it a "Good" score of 7/10:
"As a combat experience The Legend of Tianding is up there with the Guacamelee! series, showcasing excellent gameplay that allows you to string together multiple attacks and use your enemies’ weapons against them.
With distinct chapters introducing their own standalone missions, however, the game stubbornly forces you to endure a huge amount of set-up, with long conversations with NPCs and arduous treks across the hub world of Taipei. Trimming this fat would have benefited the overall pacing greatly, but push through this and you’ll be rewarded with one of the most thrilling combat experiences we’ve encountered in a while."
Look out for The Legend of Tianding on Xbox Game Pass in a few weeks' time!
