The New Journey is an update for Dota 2 coming this fall. And as the headline implies, a new hero will join the roster.
In the cinematic video above shown during The International this weekend, you get a look at the Monkey King and his army of fellow primates which seem to spawn from locks of his hair.
Various references over the years to the Sun Wukong have been made in Dota 2, such as an “item which grants True Strike” called the Monkey King Bar. Note the staff the Monkey King is carrying in the trailer.
Apparently, update 6.87 introduced an ARG of sorts where a banana item drops from trees destroyed in a private lobby using cheats. Many feel the bananas are a reference to Sun Wukong finally making his appearance.
RPS delves into this a bit deeper, and since they seem to have more knowledge on the subject, head over there and give the post a read.
