Kena: Bridge of Spirits stood out during PlayStation 5’s Future of Gaming presentation, and has become a favourite in the next-gen console’s early lineup. Unfortunately, it’s going to take a little longer to arrive than we thought; developer Ember Lab has decided it best to delay the game.
As stated in the above tweet, Kena will skip its holiday 2020 release date, and is now scheduled to arrive in the first quarter of 2021. The studio attributes the need for more time to the year’s “many challenges” and the transition to home working. It’s the same story we’ve heard many times throughout the year, but as Ember Lab says, it’s the right decision for “the game and the well-being of the team”.
In more positive news, Game Informer has been busy getting the inside scoop on the promising cross-gen adventure. The publication has gotten some juicy details on the PS5 version — it apparently boots up in just two seconds, and the developer is really digging into features like haptic feedback and the adaptive triggers.
