Alongside Naked Rain, NetEase has announced Project Mugen. As of writing, Project Mugen is still its working title, so expect a new name for the game in the coming months. NetEase Games usually releases games for smartphones. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case with Project Mugen. Keep reading to learn more about Project Mugen, including the possible release date, available platforms, and if it will arrive on consoles.
Dive into a world full of mysteries with Project Mugen
Project Mugen will be a free-to-play open-world RPG available on various platforms.

It’s also possible for NetEase’s upcoming release to have similar elements to Genshin Impact and Tower of Fantasy. It features characters from different backgrounds (five confirmed so far) and impressive combat systems. However, Project Mugen stands out from the rest because of how players can traverse the city.

The latest trailer showcases this mechanic, with some users becoming interested in the game because of it.
- In the trailer, we see one of the characters run up the side of a building.
- Then, the character grapples onto the rooftop of the building, hurling themselves towards the enemies.
- Another highlight is your ability to swing across the skyscrapers like Peter Parker and Miles Morales.
As one Redditor observed, the “Spider-Man swinging traversal” was unexpected. However, that was enough to pique their interest in Project Mugen.
Another Redditor also joked that they can play Spider-Man at no cost with NetEase’s upcoming game.
