Kena: Bridge of Spirits is out soon, on the 21st of September 2021, and the developers just released the launch trailer for the game
The trailer shows a mix of CGI and Gameplay action; although it is so beautiful, it is difficult to distinguish the two. The trailer gives a bit of an introduction to the story, as Kena follows in her father’s footsteps and becomes a Spirit Guide while also trying to cleanse the land of a strange curse that has twisted the land and its inhabitants.
Kena’s efforts are aided by tiny creatures called Rot Sprites, who look similar to Pikmin style creatures. The Rot can disarm adversaries, unlock new skills, uncover secrets, and restore the beauty of the land as Kena fulfills her Spirit Guide duties. Kena also has a staff that can be used for melee attacks but also can become a bow to deal long-range attacks.
The game will also come with a host of PS5 only features such as photo mode, and game guide, here’s what the developers had to say about the photo mode:
“We’re very excited to share the ‘Cheese!’ function in Photo Mode,” Ember Lab’s animation director Hunter Schmidt explained in a press release. “When players have set up their perfect photo angle, they’ll have the option to have the characters in the photo say ‘CHEESE!’ and strike a pose. Many characters have multiple poses, so you can snap a great variety of fun shots in the same location. I’m very excited to see what kinds of photos players will capture!”.
The PS5 version Kena: Bridge of Spirits will take advantage of that console’s gameplay guides function and will include more than two hundred Game Help videos available. The game will also have Fidelity Mode’s native 4K resolution, which will run at 30 frames-per-second or Performance Mode, which targets 60 FPS and has upscaled 4K resolution.
Kena: Bridge of Spirits is out on PlayStation 5, and on PC exclusively for the Epic Games Store. See the trailer below:
