Remember the new Ong-Bak game from Studio Hive? We learned back in January that Hive was collaborating with the production studio behind the Ong-Bak movies. As it turns out, the studio is working with Ong-Bak director and choreographer Panna Rittikrai, and the game even features the likeness of star Tony Jaa.
The result can be seen in the trailer for Ong-Bak Tri: The Game above. It ... uh .... it doesn't look quite as grand as the films that inspired it. The game is slated to arrive on PC, iOS, Android and consoles this winter.
We are very happy to announce the release of the first teaser trailer for the official Ong Bak game:
ONG BAK TRI – THE GAME is based on the next installment of the popular Ong Bak movie franchise and will be published exclusively by Immanitas Entertainment this winter worldwide for PC, consoles and smartphones.
ONG BAK TRI which is being developed by Immanitas Entertainment's partner Studio HIVE in Thailand features three core elements of gameplay: intense fighting action, impressive free running sequences and highly cinematic quick-time action events. The game itself is presented as a 2.5D side-scroller, with gorgeous graphics running on the Unity Game Engine.
One of the most important goals for ONG BAK TRI was to deliver an authentic Ong Bak experience. Superstar Tony Jaa has lent his likeness to the game character and the development itself was closely accompanied by the great minds behind the movies, in particular the movie director, Thossaporn Poonnart, and the original creator and master choreographer, Panna Rittikrai.
