Kena: Bridge of Spirits was one of the standout trailers shown during Sony’s PlayStation 5 reveal event, introducing players to a beautiful world and a host of cute helpers known as the Rot. We’re excited to announce that Ember Lab’s lush adventure game is our next cover story. In the next issue of Game Informer magazine, we take a closer look at the game and its fascinating development.
How did a studio with roots in commercial animation move over to the world of video games? How did the team land on the idea of a young adventurer on a mission of healing and reconciliation? What the heck are the Rot? And how did an up and coming studio not only get their hands on PlayStation 5 development tools but also land a highly coveted slot in the console’s first major announcement event?
We explore those questions and many more in our 14-page cover story, which will be hitting next week. Sorry to keep you waiting, but we were too excited about this one to stay completely quiet.
