WUCHANG: Fallen Feathers is a new game by Chinese developer Lenzee Games, and it has a lot of Dark Souls and Bloodborne vibes. Let's look at this latest souls-like game.
So, we've got two hot, hot, hot items coming out of China: Black Myth Wukong and WUCHANG Fallen Feathers. Yes, WUCHANG is really spelled in all caps like that. The game is also not to be confused with Project EVE, which also likes its caps and also features a female character, and an Asian setting.
For the sake of sanity, your eyes and aesthetics... we're not going to keep capitalizing Wuchang every time we mention... just fyi.

What is Wuchang: Fallen Feathers About?
The game is based on historic events and will take you back to ancient China. More specifically, it'll take you back into the Ming Dynasty and the eponymous main character is on a quest of seeking the truth. It sounds super generic, but, then again, Bloodborne and Dark Souls weren't exactly known for their story, as much as for their lore and world-building. Here's how the devs themselves describe the game:
This epic journey puts the player in challenging encounters with battle crazed bandits, deformed human giants and massive demonic monsters with two-handed swords, axes, and ancient gunpowder weapons. Set in the chaotic final years of the Ming Dynasty, WUCHANG: Fallen Feathers is an exploration of the hauntingly beautiful landscapes of imperial China and the battle against a mysterious force that transforms a grim reality to supernatural horror. The game is based on the ancient Shu civilization-Sanxingdui, Jinsha, and other Chinese historical mythologies adapted into the style of Cthulhu-like fiction.
The combat and gameplay of Wuchang is very reminiscent of FromSoftware's greatest and the game just screams souls-like so hard, that you can't help but apply the label.
