Tao Feng is set in Metro China, where there is a raging conflict among two factions; the Pale Lotus and the Black Mantis. Both factions are fighting over two tablets that have the location of the treasures of the Pale Lotus temple inscribed on them. Whoever posses the treasure of the Pale Lotus temple can then be granted immortality by the gods in exchange for the treasures.
Tao Feng boasts many features never before seen in any fighting game.
Fighters develop bruises, broken bones, and cuts in real time throughout the fight. Hitting a player in a certain limb enough times will break the bone weakening the characters ability to fight back. Characters clothes also show damage over the course of time with cuts and tears.
Players will be able to interact with the stages and use them as a weapon. Players will be able to throw enemies through doors, glass cases and even the floor. Players can also use the environment to escape, flipping off walls and climbing up poles can help a trapped player escape.
Players can build up Chi during the fight then unleash it in a powerful attack, Or If the player has broken bones and other bruises they can use the built up Chi to heal their wounds.
The final boss in the game is Zhao Yen.
