Snail Games has announced plans to expand its MMORPG Age of Wushu to console and mobile devices. It is also checking into plans for a movie adaptation.
The announcement was vague on its expanded platforms and film, simply saying those details will be revealed at a later date. It aims to leverage its focus on martial arts and the use of Chinese lore on the big screen. The game takes place during the Ming dynasty, with a particular focus on kung-fu and period-appropriate landmarks. It's free-to-play through the official site.
"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," said Snail founder Shi Hai in the announcement. "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."
