It feels like a long time since Kena: Bridge of Spirits was first shown during the 'Future of Gaming' showcase back in June 2020. It received a lot of positive buzz as an action-adventure game with stunning visuals and intriguing mechanics.
The game has unfortunately suffered multiple delays due to the Covid-19 Pandemic but now seems well on schedule to release this month!
Here's everything you need to know about Kena: Bridge of Spirits
LATEST - Kena Releases this month!
It's finally September which means it's also Kena: Bridge of Spirits release month! No further delays or issues have been reported recently meaning it should be released on Tuesday, 21 September.
Hopefully, we'll see some last-minute hype for the game during the PlayStation showcase on Thursday, 9 September.
Kena: Bridge Of Spirits Delayed
It has been announced that Kena: Bridge Of Spirits has received a small delay. The new release date is now Tuesday, 21 September.
In the announcement made on Twitter, Ember Lab confirmed the delay and the reason behind it. They need some additional time to "polish the game across all platforms".
Fans have shown support for the move as it's become natural to understand such delays following the Cyberpunk 2077 catastrophe.
Kena: Bridge Of Spirits Release Date
Kena: Bridge of Spirits is set to release on 24 August 2021. The game suffered multiple delays this year alone which saw it move around quite a bit. Luckily the current release date is locked in and you'll be able to play the game very soon.
The game is available to pre-order on the PlayStation Store for just £32.99. This is much cheaper than a standard AAA game, but there is no reason to believe Kena is any less of an experience due to its price.
A Digital Deluxe edition will also be available for £39.99 which comes with some additional content.
Is Kena: Bridge Of Spirits A PlayStation Exclusive?
The game will also launch on the Epic Games Store and be available via GeForce Now. No word on how long the console exclusivity will last, but we suspect it could be anywhere up to one year.
Kena: Bridge Of Spirits Gameplay
Previews for Kena: Bridge of Spirits were made available last month and a portion of gameplay was made available to watch.
From the videos that have since been released, it becomes clear how Kena will play with heavy influences from other titles like Pikmin and The Legend of Zelda. The game has a cinematic feel to it which is also reflected in its incredible art and animation.
The art style has been compared to that of a Pixar film which has garnered a lot of attention from fans of the game. Kena: Bridge of Spirits' studio, Ember Lab, began as an animation studio, so it should be no surprise that this is one of the highlights of the game so far.
