New King Kong Game Is Leaked, But It Doesn’t Look Good

Does everyone remember the King Kong game that was released on PlayStation 2 back in 2005? It was way ahead of its time and it featured some impressive combat scenes that saw us snapping jaws of dinosaurs over and over again – and it was immensely satisfying.

Hours ago, the new King Kong game that was announced in January 2023 was leaked by Amazon Spain, with screenshots of the game being made public and subsequently circulating on social media. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look anywhere near as impressive as the 2005 epic that was produced by Ubisoft, but will the proof be in the pudding?

Is It Too Early to Judge?

Skull Island: Rise of Kong is being published by GameMill Entertainment, the company that brought your NERF Legends, Cruis’N Blast, and American Ninja Warrior. It also published Big Buck Hunter Arcade, Zhu Zhu Pets, and Country Dance All-Stars, so… I mean, take that to mean whatever you so desire.

In January, this all-new King Kong game was announced, but very little information was revealed. Now, we have a whole synopsis to trawl through, thanks to Gematsu.

‘Embark on a third-person action-adventure to avenge the death of your parents at the hands of the ultimate alpha predator: Gaw. Conquer waves of primal beasts and defeat your archenemy’s minions to become the rightful king of Skull Island. Cross the mysterious island and discover the history and secrets it hides as you come across swamps, waterfalls, jungles, and caves full of Skullites that give power to the flora and fauna of the island.’

If we work solely with the screenshots that have been made available, we’re not exactly filled with anticipation about this new King Kong game. For instance:

Or how about:

Let’s not pass too strong a judgement too soon, though. It could turn out to be the best King Kong game ever released and it’ll ultimately smash the 2005 release into the ground.

Skull Island: Rise of Kong will be launching on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
