Kena Bridge of Spirits

Kena: Bridge of Spirits was a surprise reveal last year that caught the eye of many. At one point it was set to launch alongside Sony’s PS5, but in the end, it got a delay. We haven’t seen a lot from the game since its initial unveiling, outside some very nice screenshots here and there. While we still don’t have much footage, yet, we do have some details about how you’ll navigate through the world.

In the latest issue of Official PlayStation Magazine (February 2021), Ember Lab Co-Founder Josh Grier spoke about the game. He said they are looking at the game as ‘wide linear’. That means that while there is a set main path, and not really openly non-linear, there are things to explore to the side in some ways and different avenues of progression.

Maybe one of the most interest parts is Grier seems to indicate you can unlock your way forward multiple ways. Ones of the examples given are moving forward by either solving a puzzle or defeating a tough mini-boss in the way. It’s unclear how often you’ll get find yourself in that situation, but it sounds like a unique way to tackle progress, hopefully we’ll see more soon.

Kena: Bridge of Spirits is set to release at some point this year for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC. The game has no official date, yet, but Sony recently indicated that it was targeting a March release.
