Mighty Koi Studio Challenges The Witcher's Dominance With Dual European Fantasy RPG Releases

New Polish Studio Unveils Thorgal and The Night Wanderer to Showcase Diverse Folklore-Inspired Adventures

In a bold move to diversify the European fantasy RPG landscape, up-and-coming studio Mighty Koi Studio has announced not one, but two ambitious titles, aiming to demonstrate that The Witcher is not the sole epic in town.

The Polish developer’s dual reveal includes Thorgal and The Night Wanderer, each drawing inspiration from rich European folklore and literature. Thorgal, based on the legendary Polish comic series by Grzegorz Rosiński and Jean Van Hamme, thrusts players into the role of the eponymous Viking, Thorgal Aegirsson. Combining action-packed gameplay with RPG elements, the title is crafted using Unreal Engine 5 and is slated for release on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X, although a specific launch date is yet to be announced.

Meanwhile, The Night Wanderer draws from Jarosław Grzędowicz’s acclaimed ‘Lord of the Ice Garden’ book series, embarking players on a gripping adventure as the mercenary Vuko Drakkainen. Tasked with unraveling the mystery behind a vanished scientific expedition on the planet of Midgaard, the game promises an immersive experience enriched with “Soulslike” combat mechanics. Notably, author Grzędowicz is collaborating closely with Mighty Koi Studio to ensure the game remains faithful to its literary roots.

With these ambitious projects, Mighty Koi Studio seeks to challenge the notion that The Witcher stands alone as the pinnacle of Polish RPG excellence. Despite being a relatively young studio, founded in 2022, Mighty Koi aims to carve its own niche in the international gaming landscape, signaling a promising future for European fantasy RPG enthusiasts worldwide. As of now, specific release windows for Thorgal and The Night Wanderer remain undisclosed, leaving eager fans eagerly anticipating further updates from the burgeoning studio.
