We also see the player-character (who may or may not be the real Wukong of Chinese tales) use a set of new spells to fight them: transform into a skull-filled walking boulder to deflect ranged attacks, freeze a charging enemy in place, and knock them back (somewhat reminiscent of Breath of the Wild’s Stasis ability) , ward off multiple enemies and transform into three lightning-wielding creatures for an aerial attack.

Black Myth: Wukong – 11 screenshots
