Critics praised it as one of the finest Soulslikes ever created, showering it with nominations for Best Art Direction and Best RPG at The Game Awards. Alas, victory eluded our wooden protagonist, but fear not, for Lies of P's legacy continues to grow.
On the other side of this cosmic crossover lies Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, a creation of the renowned Team Ninja. These masterminds, known for their classic franchises like Ninja Gaiden, Dead or Alive, and Nioh, unleashed their mythical masterpiece upon the world in March. Set in the Han Dynasty, Wo Long pits fearless players against the most fearsome creatures of Chinese mythology in relentless boss battles that would make even the bravest warrior tremble.
Now, dear readers, imagine the collision of these two magnificent worlds! Lies of P has announced a collaboration with Wo Long, igniting our souls with excitement. In a mesmerizing trailer, Lies of P unveiled a bevy of new items inspired by the Fallen Dynasty.

And let us not forget the Bandana of the Honorable, a stylish accessory fit for any valiant warrior.
But wait, there's more! This rendezvous of Soulslikes isn't their first meeting. Shortly after Lies of P's debut, Wo Long players were treated to a taste of Pinocchio's world, wielding his signature weapons—the Puppet's Saber and Etiquette, a lethal umbrella capable of fending off attacks with style. While Pinocchio's dashing costumes didn't make the jump to Wo Long, fret not, for Lies of P players shall bask in the glory of yet another awe-inspiring ensemble.

The release date remains a mystery, but fear not, for a sequel is also on the horizon, promising even more enchanting adventures. Ah, the sweet agony of anticipation!
