Monkey King: Hero is Back

Sony Interactive Entertainment debuted a new trailer for Monkey King: Hero is Back for PlayStation 4 during the PlayStation ChinaJoy 2019 press conference.

The game is based on the 2015 animated movie of the same name, which was the highest-grossing animated film in China at the time of release with a box office of $153 million. It depicts the journey shared by three main characters—Monkey King, Pigsy, and the child Liu Jiang—who fight many different monsters using various skills and magic, as well as cooperation and wisdom. The relationships between these characters strengthen as their journey continues, and they find the missing pieces to the puzzles of their own individual lives.
