Neon Doctrine is kicking 2023 off with some new release news for their titles Yuppie Psycho and The Legend of Tianding.
First up, corporate survival game Yuppie Psycho is now available on the PlayStation 4 in North America after previously releasing on the platform in Europe last year. The game is also available worldwide on Xbox Series, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
Along with that, The Legend of Tianding will also finally be releasing on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 worldwide on January 18 after releasing previously on Xbox Series, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. You can watch trailers and learn more about both titles below.
Meet Brian Pasternack, a young man with no future in a dystopian ’90s society. It’s this young man’s first day at one of the world’s largest companies, Sintracorp. Uncertain, unprepared, and massively unqualified, will Pasternack have what it takes to shine in Sintracorp’s hierarchy? It all depends on how he performs on his first assignment… and whether he survives it. During his unconventional employee orientation, Pasternack discovers what his new job really entails: hunting a “witch” whose powers made the success of the corporation possible in the first place, but who now seems to have returned to torment its employees. Brian will meet all kinds of odd characters, encounter terrible creatures, and unravel the hidden secrets of Sintracorp’s dark past.
Originally released in 2019, Yuppie Psycho has now made its way onto all platforms worldwide in the expanded Yuppie Psycho: Executive Edition. Players all over can experience the wacky and unsettling adventure of Brian Pasternack in his new corporate hellscape.
The hyper-intense side-scrolling action title The Legend of Tianding comes to PlayStation consoles on January 18th. Players take control of Liao Tianding — a Taiwanese vigilante folk hero who is more than meets the eye. As Liao Tianding, players fight for justice in the streets of early 20th century Taipei, robbing the rich to feed the poor and evading capture by Colonial Japanese authorities who have occupied the city.
Players must battle the authorities in style with a tanto, waist sash, and fast paced Kung Fu in tightly tuned technical combat. They’ll execute advanced aerial combos, steal weapons from enemies, equip powerful talismans, and use grappling hooks to fly around the battlefield to strike fear into the hearts of oppressors.
Based on real events, real people, and real situations, The Legend of Tianding is an exploration of a place and time often overlooked. Presented in the style of Traditional Chinese Manga, the Dadaocheng area of Taipei city at the turn of the century is brought to life in this one of a kind action-packed experience.
Originally released in 2021, The Legend of Tianding was highly praised upon launch, receiving numerous awards, such as “Best Narration” at the 2022 Taipei Game Show and “Best Game Design” at the Valencia Indie Summit 2022.
