Developed by Leonard Menchiari and Shadow Warrior 3 studio Flying Wild Hog, the side-scrolling samurai title Trek to Yomi was first announced nearly a year ago, and instantly caught the eye of many. At the recent State of Play presentation, the game emerged once more with a new trailer.
The primary focus here is very much the story, with the trailer setting up the journey that protagonist Hiroki goes on in order to protect his town and its people against new threats after making a promise to his dying master. New gameplay is also shown off, with particular emphasis being placed on the combat, while the game’s gorgeous black-and-white aesthetic continues to look gorgeous. Check it out below.
It’s also been confirmed that Trek to Yomi will launch sometime in the Spring, though a specific release date hasn’t yet been revealed. It will release for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and will also be available via Game Pass at launch.
