It’s time to start hunting in Azuma with Wild Hearts now available. This new kind of hunting game invites players to an epic adventure set in fantasy medieval Japan. Players get to battle against Kemono beasts with the help of sophisticated ancient technology called Karakuri.

The game is now available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S and PC through the RA App, Epic Game Store, and Steam.

Beware the Kemono

There are various Kemono that players can encounter in the game, including the Amaterasu hawk, Kingtusk wild boar, and Golden Tempest wind tiger. Kemono typically have the power of nature to reshape their surroundings to meet their needs.

One way to fight against the Kemono is by using Karakuri technology, which lets players shape and adapt their environment into hunting grounds.

Go on a Hunt

In Wild Hearts, players take a journey across Azuma as either a lone wolf or pack-hunt with up to two friends, courtesy of co-op and crossplay features across all platforms. Players can expand their battle plans and even go on special missions while pack hunting. They can also join other hunters around the world or take on the Kemono solo.

To have a fighting chance against the Kemono, players need to master the Karakuri systems, like constructing a basic crate, spring and torch Karakuri, and learning Fusion Karakuri to counterattack the Kemono. There’s also the Dragon Karakuri which needs players to draw power from the land to construct it.

Statements of Support

In a statement, Electronic Arts Vice President for Global Brand Stuart Lang revealed that by working with the Omega Force team of KOEI TECMO, they're excited to introduce a new fantasy world to players. He added that Omega Force has managed to raise the bar for the hunting genre.

Meanwhile, KOEI TECMO GAMES Executive Vice President Yosuke Hayashi shared that their goal has long been to develop a hunting game which offers new and innovative experiences set in a beautiful and fantastical setting.

The Wild Hearts Standard Edition is available for $69.99. The game includes voice-overs in English, Japanese, French, Italian, German, and Spanish.
