- Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty — Team Ninja’s critically acclaimed title — was revealed on March 3, 2023
- The game’s morale system adds a very unique spin to the traditional Soulslike formula.
- We interviewed Masakazu Hirayama, Director of Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, over an email Q&A session.
Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty was released in a year with many non-FromSoftware Soulslike games and became one of the more successful titles of the bunch. It introduced a morale system, which was very unique to the genre. It also went past the open-world design and chose a closed-level design to depict the intensity and flow of each battlefield. The game quickly became a fan-favorite thanks to some of these elements and the memorable boss fights.
It has since released three major DLC updates, each adding more battlefields and bosses for players to enjoy. However, with the third DLC being termed the “final major update,” we wondered what Team Ninja plans to do with the game in the future. With that and many other questions in mind, we spoke with Masakazu Hirayama, Producer and Director of Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, over an email Q&A session.
Read ahead for the full interview.
