Kena: Bridge of Spirits devs reconfirm the game is "still on track to release Q1 of 2021"

By Heidi Nicholas,
PlayStation console exclusive Kena: Bridge of Spirits was recently delayed to Q1 2021 to give developer Ember Lab more time to "give the game the polish it deserves." Recently, fans began to worry about another delay after Kena: Bridge of Spirits appeared on the PlayStation site with a release date of Q4 2021, but luckily the devs have already responded to say this is an error. Kena: Bridge of Spirits is still well and truly on track for Q1 2021.

Kena: Bridge of Spirits

Over on the PlayStation site, you can currently see Kena: Bridge of Spirits listed under PlayStation console exclusives with a release date of Q4 2021. The developers say "that is an error," that they are "working with Sony to correct the message," and that Kena: Bridge of Spirits is "still on track to release Q1 of 2021."

It would have been a shame to see the game delayed again, as Kena: Bridge of Spirits looks utterly gorgeous. It's an action game with a narrative focus, in which you play as Spirit Guide Kena herself. The world has been cursed with corrupt spirits, and Kena needs to protect the Rot spirits — adorable creatures with a not-so-cute name — who will in turn travel around with her. The Rot can help in combat, but it seems they and Kena will also have some sort of restorative powers, as the trailers we've seen so far show lush greenery growing in places which had been empty and desolate.
