In a recent interview with Newsweek, Kena: Bridge of Spirits‘ Taro voice actor Tod Fennel talked about the comparisons between Ember Lab’s upcoming action-adventure game and Pixar movies, thanks to the game’s visual style and fidelity. These comparisons have been an integral part of the game’s anticipation and hype, and the voice actor seems to echo this sentiment with his statements on the matter.

Fennel said: “It has a really comforting style. Yes, there is that RPG kind of vibe, but it’s almost like a Pixar movie in terms of how it looks and feels.”

Fennel also talks about how Kena: Bridge of Spirits certainly has the well, spirit of a Pixar movie in terms of its gorgeous visuals and storytelling. Despite seeming like a light-hearted fable about good vs bad, Fennel reveals that the game has surprising emotional depth and tackles serious issues related to pain and suffering.

“Kena is helping [the spirits] move on. It’s very beautiful and these characters all have real injuries. I was really surprised by the depth of the emotional storytelling. You see how people can struggle to handle their pain and where that can go if you do not deal with it properly. I think players are going to be surprised by the level of depth, intensity and emotion here,” Fennel said.

Kena: Bridge of Spirits was shaping up to be one of the biggest releases of this month, until a delay announcement put it further along in September. The game certainly looks promising, and early previews have garnered quite the positive reception.
