Ong Bak is a fine series of Thai martial arts movies that received plenty of critical and commercial success both in Thailand and around the world. Naturally, when a film about people kicking things and stuff getting punched makes it big, a game must be sure to follow. That game, Ong Bak Tri, is being built on the Unity3D engine for PC, consoles,  and Android. The newly released gameplay trailer looks pretty fantastic for a mobile game.

Of course, the trailer seems to be showing gameplay that involves quick time events requiring a user to press a colored button that looks like they correspond to an Xbox 360 controller, so it's a little unclear if we can expect the graphics to look as nice on mobile as they do in this trailer. Given the cross-platform compatibility of unity3D, we can hope so, but as always, your mileage may vary. Either way, though, the game looks exciting.

No word yet on pricing or availability.

    I find it to be very weird that they display the Xbox buttons, but the game is NOT coming to consoles (based on the trailer at least).

    Anyway, this seems to be up my anal. Love side-scrollers....the only thing I'd have loved is an auto-move mechanism.

    PS: I've heard people speak of this game here and elsewhere as if the movies are a great thing. I am a movie buff and have actually never heard of the movie.

        It is a figure of speech dude.

          I have NEVER heard that particular expression. Up my alley, yes, but not up the anal.

            I did some checks, and oh my, what you say is indeed true. My bad. Never knew I was wrong all this time. I meant "up my alley" and not "up my anal".

            Aren't you glad someone pointed this out to you on the internet rather than in real life? :D

            Made my day too. I would have loved to be a part of the conversation if it were in real life. Good thing for defred34 he didn't have to live that down

            I would be terrified to see the results of that Google search.

    This game looks great! I'm betting that we're seeing the PC version of the game, but if the graphics are good and the gameplay is fun, I will jump on this.

    There doesn't seem to be another Ong Bak "upcoming movie".

    The first 30 seconds reminded me of 'Altered Beast' ;-)
