Leonard Menchari’s software returns to show us its aesthetics, which are inspired by Japanese samurai films, such as those by Kurosawa. All in black and white, to respect the atmosphere of this type of feature film, the game published by Devolver Digital is on track to immerse us properly.
Between the Japanese dubbing, the scent of blood, the cinematographic image, and the fights, there is an undeniable sense of detail. But Trek to Yomi is a game, so we’ll have to see what it really has in store. As for the story, here it is:
A young warrior swears on his venerable master’s deathbed to protect his city and the people he loves from all outside threats. Wracked by tragedy, driven by duty, this lonely samurai embarks on a journey beyond life and death to find his way and pave the way to his own destiny.
For those who don’t know, Leonard Menchari is a director of short films, which probably explains all the importance given to visuals and atmosphere. He notably directed RIOT: Civil Unrest and Half-Life – Singularity Collapse. Before Trek to Yomi, he signed the game The Eternal Castle as director.
In case the app catches your eye, the pre-orders are open with a 10% discount on the basic price which is 19,99€. And for Xbox Game Pass subscribers, it lands day one in the service.
Trek to Yomi will be released on May 5, 2022, for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.
