Kena: Bridge Of Spirits Has Been Classified For Xbox Series X|S

A bridge across platforms.

It looks as though Ember Lab’s gorgeous 2021 action adventure, Kena; Bridge of Spirits might be headed to Xbox Series X|S consoles soon, as a rating for the game has appeared on the USA’s ESRB website. The page also suggests it’ll be made available as a physical version, given it’s titled as the retail release of “Kena: Bridge of Spirits – Deluxe Edition” and the listed publisher is Maximum Entertainment – which also handled the physical copies of the PlayStation versions under the Maximum Games banner.

The ESRB listing, which has rated the game a T for Teen as with the existing PlayStation versions of the game, reads:

“This is an action-adventure game in which players control a spirit guide (Kena) as she removes corruption and restores various environments. From a third-person perspective, players traverse platforms, solve puzzles, interact with spirits and creatures, and battle corrupted spirits and boss creatures. Players use a magic staff, arrows, and small creatures (called Rot) to strike enemies and drain their health meters in melee-style combat. Enemies (e.g., human-like spirits, tree-like ghouls, giant wood creatures) attack players by using bladed weapons and explosive bursts of fire/energy. Combat can be frenetic, with frequent impact sounds, screen-shaking effects, and cries of pain.”

We scored the game an 8/10 in our review, where I wrote, “As an indie effort and a debut game, Kena: Bridge of Spirits makes a good impression. It balances simplicity and challenge while weaving a neatly-paced story into something that can be played over a chill couple of days. Despite fantastic production values it’s still far from a AAA title – so it’s important to keep expectations in check, but anyone looking to lose themselves in a charming, gorgeous world ripe for exploration should look no further. It’s exactly what I needed right now – perfect cosy weekend entertainment.”
