Ember Lab reveals Kena: Bridge of Spirits as part of Sony Interactive Entertainment’s PS5 The Future of Gaming event today. A story-driven action-adventure, the game seamlessly blends narrative with exploration, puzzle-solving, and fast-paced combat for a beautiful, immersive journey. Kena: Bridge of Spirits is slated to debut in time for the 2020 Holiday season.
A journey of self-discovery
Players will go on a journey as Kena as he restores the 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 the Rot, the player will disarm adversaries, unlock new skills, uncover secrets, and restore the beauty of the land.
One of the most unique aspects of the game revolves around enhancing Kena’s abilities with the help of her Rot companions. Building a bond with the Rot leads to a deeper, more organic combat and a nuanced skill evolution. Kena: Bridge of Spirits has been designed to take advantage of the PlayStation 5 hardware performance and DUALSENSE controller. The game features immersive haptic feedback including simulated string resistance for Kena’s Spirit Bow.
“We’ve had this game concept for some time, and we’re finally able to bring our vision to life with the support from Sony and the capabilities of the new hardware – We want Kena: Bridge of Spirits to immerse the player in a detailed, fantastical world that feels real.”
Mike Grier – Chief Creative Officer of Ember Lab
Releasing in time for the 2020 holiday season, Kena: Bridge of Spirits will be coming exclusively to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and the Epic Games Store.
