It was only last week when EA Originals and Koei Tecmo revealed that the game they were working on was called Wild Hearts. Things seem to be moving forward with a new seven-minute trailer released.

You watch the trailer below:

The extended gameplay sequence shows players attempt to take on the Kingtusk, first solo and then with co-op partners. We also get a better look at Karakuri and sophisticated mechanisms that players craft to traverse the world and fight against Kemono. The trailer also shows us different locations like the flowery terrain of Hanagasumi Hills, a Spring setting, and one of the hunting grounds.

There's no doubt that there's a lot to be excited about in this game. However, we'll all have to keep that excitement in check for a little longer since the game is scheduled for a February 17, 2023 release on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S.

Features of the game include:

  • Hunt Down Giant Nature-Infused Beasts
    • Kemono are beasts which underwent a unique evolution by fusing with their environments.
    • These beasts have the power of nature to reshape their environment to suit their needs.
    • In the game, you encounter Kemono of all sizes.
    • These enormous creatures use the power of nature itself to defend their new territory.
  • Prepare Your Fighting Ground
    • The ancient Karakuri technology allows you to craft and build new, highly flexible and creative hunting grounds to take down giant Kemono.
    • Be sure to stock up on materials to build many kinds of Karakuri, depending upon your needs, skills, and which kemono you are fighting.
    • Each new Kemono you defeat unveils new Karakuri and new resources to use.
  • Pack Hunter or Lone Wolf
    • The game's co-op and crossplay features allow you and up to two friends to hunt down Kemono together.
    • Pack hunting allows you to expand your battle plans with more building capabilities and special missions.
    • As a lone wolf, you can seamlessly join in and help other hunters in multiplayer mode through the Torri System, or you can take on the giant beasts on your own.
  • Gear Up to Hunt, Hunt to Gear Up
    • You can become the greatest hunter by gathering materials from each hunt and the environment, and craft unique sets of armor with different variations.
    • There are unique weapons to choose from, and tons of variations, which means there's a combat style for everyone, and each combat style has different gameplay pace and attacks.
    • You can craft gear with the material of defeated Kemono, further customizing it to suit your playstyle.
  • Dive Into Fantasy Feudal Japan
    • Immerse yourself in beautiful environments littered with structures that represent everyday village life, faith, and warfare, now swallowed up by nature.
    • The game's four hunting grounds each represent a different season.
