Swordfighting in black and white

The Kurosawa-inspired Trek to Yomi has set a date. The samurai motion sport unsheathes the blade on PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Sequence X|S, and PC on Might 5, 2022.

Information of the date arrives alongside an prolonged gameplay video, the place developer Leonard Menchiari and Flying Wild Hog showcase a 15-minute chunk of Trek to Yomi. Alongside the side-scrolling, sword-slicing motion, there are some mild environmental puzzles to unravel too. Or at the least, a tree to cut for a makeshift bridge.

The visible model is the large draw although, and Trek to Yomi appears to be like fairly beautiful in movement. The black-and-white look clearly brings Akira Kurosawa motion pictures to thoughts, however the touches I like are the foreground and background motion. Issues popping out and in and of the foreground, altering up the body, look actually cool because the participant ventures by way of every space.

On the trail of vengeance

Trek to Yomi will observe younger swordsman Hiroki, voyaging on a quest after giving a vow to his dying grasp to avenge him. It appears to be like like the main focus is on the swordplay in fight, with each model and a few streamlined swordfighting on the middle.

Additionally confirmed at this time is that Trek to Yomi is coming to Recreation Go. So for those who’re nonetheless uncertain concerning the monochromatic motion however wish to strive it out, the Recreation Go avenue is all the time open.

Trek to Yomi has been wanting spectacular because it was first revealed, particularly due to its dedication to the model that Flying Wild Hog is working in direction of. One thing about the way in which it flows from scene-to-scene, and using depth in a 2D body, is a very cool look. Whether or not the melodrama and motion comes collectively in the long run, we’ll discover out quickly sufficient.

Trek to Yomi units off on its journey for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Sequence X|S, and PC on Might 5, 2022.
