With the release of Wild Hearts just around the corner, we're getting another look into what the game has to offer with a new trailer. This time, we're taken to Minato, the central village of Azuma and serves as the home base of players.

This latest trailer introduces us to some of the most important characters in the village. These allies will play an important role in winning over the Kemono that's been rampaging in the city's landscape and threatening their homes. Once these Kemono are defeated, these fearsome creatures give up their Celestial Thread that can then be used by hunters to weave them together for whatever purpose. Of course, with the help of the ancient Karakuri technology, players get to protect the village and people of Minato from catastrophe.

You can watch the new trailer below:
