Unlikely partners EA and Koei Temco released a new trailer from the latter?s newest IP Wild Hearts. Developed by Omega Force, the studio behind the endless Dynasty Warriors title. Set in the asian inspired world of Azuma, you play as a character with the ability to utilize the lost technology of Karakuri. Armed with the ability to construct complex machinery, you set forth to hunt down creatures known as a Kemeno. Unlike other hunting games, Kemono are based on creatures that exist on Earth with obvious exaggerations.
The seven minute clip shows a lone hunter on the prowl to track down a Kingtusk, a boar-like creature adorned with a layer of fauna. While they are successful in finding one, in a one on one encounter the Kingtusk gets the better of the hunter, but fret not others end up joining the fray to ensure the hunter gets their prey.
Wild Hearts will be coming to next gen consoles and PC on February 17th, 2023 and fret not about not being able to find companions to hunt with as the title will feature crossplay. So gather resources, craft gear, build Karakuri and most importantly take down those Kemeno!
