No sequel to Kena: Bridge of Spirits, but other ways to make money

Ember Lab is not looking to make a direct sequel to Kena but is considering other options.


Kena: Bridge of Spirits won us over at the first PS5 game launch with a charming action-adventure game set in a beautiful fairytale world reminiscent of animated films, with lovable characters and magical environments. The game’s atmosphere transports us to a world full of spiritual life, where we raise a team of timid companions who help us manipulate our environment.

In the industry, it’s not uncommon for the success of a franchise to lead to future instalments that continue the stories of characters that fans have come to love. Still, the developers of Kena: Bridge of Spirits don’t share that view. In an interview with SoulVision magazine, the developers admitted that they do not expect Kena to get a direct sequel.



Regardless, it would not mean the end of their universe entirely, from which they would attempt to build new stories, creating new franchises based on the magical world they have managed to create. For the developers, Kena’s world has vast narrative potential, which could lead to new stories with a similar play style but different IP. They are also exploring adopting more linear formulas from other media, such as film or television.

The game has suffered some delays but is now just around the corner, with a planned release date of 21 September this year for PC, PS4 and PS5. The game will be released at a discounted price, and no physical release is planned for now, although the studio isn’t ruling that out either. Kena: Bridge of Spirits is one of the big indie promises of 2021.
