New King Kong game has you avenging your monkey parents

Announcement: Skull Island: Rise of Kong has been officially revealed for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. The game is set to release this autumn.


Latest Update: Amazon seems to have accidentally revealed an exciting new game centered around Kong, the iconic giant ape.

Titled “Skull Island: Rise of Kong,” this upcoming game is set to hit multiple gaming platforms, including PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The leak came to light through a recent listing on Amazon Spain, which was reported by Gematsu on July 20.

According to the description on Amazon Spain, players will embark on a thrilling third-person action-adventure in the new game to avenge their parents’ demise at the hands of the ultimate alpha predator, Gaw. Surprisingly, it appears that in this game, we assume the role of Kong seeking vengeance for our monkey parents’ death, making for an intriguing setup.

As players progress through the game, they must conquer waves of primal beasts and defeat minions belonging to their archenemy, all in pursuit of becoming the rightful king of Skull Island. Throughout the journey, players will explore the mysterious island, uncovering its hidden history and secrets, which include swamps, waterfalls, jungles, and caves teeming with skullites that enhance the island’s flora and fauna.

Developed by GameMill Entertainment, the same studio responsible for Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl, we can expect the new Kong game to follow a similar style. It is likely to involve intense battles against various monsters, including bizarre dinosaurs, as hinted by the intriguing box art.

Fans can anticipate an official announcement for “Skull Island: Rise of Kong” in the coming days, given the details already revealed on the Amazon listing.
