Posted on March 21, 2023 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop
Thanks to Leoful and PiXEL, we have a final release date for Xiaomei and the Flame Dragon’s Fist in the west. It’s been announced that the title is slated for March 31 in North America and Europe.
Xiaomei and the Flame Dragon’s Fist was confirmed for an overseas launch last September. It was originally slated for 2022.
Here’s a bunch of information about the game:
A long time ago, the evil Dark Dragon was sealed away by Master Jin Shenlong high up on Mount Heian. It was believed that the Dark Dragon will grant those who can claim its great strength the power to rule the world.
Two sisters, Xiaomei and Xiaoyin, trained together at a village under Master Pailong. Xiaomei dedicated herself to learning the Flame Dragon’s Fist, while Xiaoyin tried to master the Dark Dragon’s Fist. Both of these kung fu techniques were like yin and yang, which helped to keep the world in balance.
As they underwent Master Pailong’s training, Xiaoyin started showing a great hatred for the Flame Dragon Fist and tried to hinder Xiaomei’s efforts. Could she have been influenced by the darkness?
One day, Xiaoyin disappeared, and about a month later rumors began to swirl that she was training at Mount Heian, the same place where the Dark Dragon was sealed.
Motivated by her strong desire to save her sister, Xiaomei finally mastered the Flame Dragon’s Fist and sets off to find her.
