has huge plans for its successful Age of Wushu
IP. The firm has already announced an expansion
for its wuxia-powered MMORPG, but now it's aiming at a console port, a mobile port, and a feature film set in the same universe.
The company's press release offers no details on any of the new projects aside from promising more details "at a later date." As for the big-screen treatment, Snail founder and chairman Shi Hai
says it's only natural. "The Age of Wushu
game looks and plays like a major martial arts motion picture, so bringing the property to movie screens is a logical evolution," he explained. "Our goal has always been for the property to reach the widest audience so evolving to a feature film and expanding the experience to consoles and mobile devices continues our plan."
