Unruly Heroes

Unruly Heroes, a 2D platformer inspired by the Chinese classic Journey to the West and developed by Montpellier-based
Magic Design Studios, whose staff consist of former Ubisoft developers, is now available for Xbox One, Switch, and PC. The PlayStation 4 version is still in development and will launch in 2019, Magic Design Studios told Gematsu.

Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:

Madcap Action, Martial Arts, Monkey King and More!

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.Only four totally opposed, implausible heroes can turn back the tide: Sanzang the wise, Wukong the fearless monkey, Kihong the greedy pig, and Sandmonk the sensitive brute.

On their journey westward, they will travel to fantastical worlds to gather the pieces of the scroll and fight an army of evil creatures.
Or they’ll try, anyway!
