Months ago, we spotted an update to Raw Thrills’ King Kong of Skull Island on test. Since then, we’ve heard nary a word about it, nor another sighting. That changes today as the update will appear at IAAPA 2023 this next week. Let’s see what it is all about:
King Kong II – Hardware Details
This sequel is a major content update that warrants the “II” being added to the title. In addition to the existing 1-3 chapters, II adds 4 & 5 to the mix.

Note – This is not the only new Raw Thrills game that was announced today.
King Kong II – Software Details
The two chapters are known as Tri-Trouble and Into the Deep, respectively.
