Kena: Bridge of Spirits was first announced during Sony’s PlayStation 5 presentation in June of last year. It has been one of the most anticipated new indie titles, especially for the new current-gen hardware, with its impressive, Pixar-like visuals. It was originally supposed to launch holiday 2020 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Epic Games Store. However, the game was delayed to Q1 2021 as a result of complications of working during the COVID-19 pandemic. A definitive launch date was later announced in February 2021 for August 24. Ultimately, Ember Labs has decided to delay the Kena release date once again, but only by a month, which is not very long to wait.
