Madrid, Spain – 18th January 2023. Publisher Meridiem Games announced today that the highly anticipated third-person action-adventure game The Crown of Wu would be launching as a special boxed Legend Edition on PlayStation 5 in Q1 2023.

The Crown of Wu narrates the adventures of Wu, a half-monkey, half-human, who after once being the emperor’s herald, began to behave in a chaotic manner due to the use of a crown that gave him extraordinary powers. It is as if wearing it corrupts the heart… Eventually, his crimes and atrocities led him to be captured and condemned to a harsh punishment; being frozen in bio-static solution. After dozens of years spent almost conscious yet immobile, Wu manages to free himself from his prison and discovers a decadent world in ruins. Moreover, his crown has been stolen and is being used to provoke a vibration that will eventually lead to a gigantic explosion and, with it, lead to extinction… Wu must recover his stolen crown and help those he once punished, in order to save the world and redeem himself to finally find peace….
Wu’s crown must be found!
