Independent game development and animation studio, Ember Lab, have announced the launch date for its inaugural game Kena: Bridge of Spirits during PlayStation’s State of Play event. This story-driven action-adventure seamlessly blends a compelling narrative with exploration, puzzle-solving, and fast-paced combat for a beautiful, immersive journey. Coming to PS5, PS4, and the PC Epic Games Store on August 24th, Kena: Bridge of Spirits can be preordered started recently.
Kena: Bridge of Spirits is available in both a Standard Digital Edition ($39.99) and a Deluxe Digital Edition ($49.99), which includes the digital soundtrack, and in-game silver staff, and golden Rot skin exclusives. All PlayStation editions include both PS5 and PS4 digital versions of the game.
This gorgeous adventure takes players on a journey of self-discovery as Kena restores balance to an ancient village in a once-thriving environment. Players take on the role of Kena, a young Spirit Guide on a quest to uncover the mysterious story surrounding the demise of the village. Using her staff and the help of her collection of tiny companions known as Rot, the player will disarm adversaries, unlock new skills, uncover secrets, and restore the beauty of the land.
“We’re overwhelmed by and grateful for the enthusiasm surrounding Kena: Bridge of Spirits, and we can’t wait to share our game with everyone this August – We’re taking the next few months to further polish and optimize for the best possible game. It’s been quite an experience completing our first title during the pandemic. We are super excited to reveal the latest trailer and announce the launch date.”
