Game News This samurai game with cutting edge gameplay will be back in physical format, but not on all media…
Contrary to current productions, Trek to Yomi captivated players last May thanks to its unique cinematic style. The game is now announced in physical format, but which versions are affected?
With Trek to Yomi, the Flying Wild Hog studio and publisher Devolver Digital have paid a fine tribute to samurai films in the vein of the feature films signed by the famous director Akira Kurosawa (Rashomon, The Seven Samurai, The Spider’s Castle…). Released in early May, this action-adventure game unlike any other is based on a cinematographic approach in black and white to offer us an unprecedented immersion in the heart of feudal Japan. As young Hiroki, a redeeming swordsman, the player must overcome a tragedy and travel between life and death to face himself.
PlayStation versions in the spotlight
With its daring choices in terms of staging and artistic direction, Trek to Yomi is therefore a vibrant tribute to traditional samurai films, based on an idea by developer Leonard Menchiari. Until now only available in dematerialized, the game returns to talk about him again on the occasion of its release in physical edition. But beware, not all media are affected. It is indeed exclusively on PlayStation consoles that the two physical editions of Trek to Yomi are announced, which therefore returns in standard and collector version from September 30. !
An “Ultimate Edition” box set!
To mark the event, the Just for Games team will offer the Trek to Yomi game in a standard edition and in a collector’s version. The latter, named “Ultimate Edition”, will be presented in a special box containing the game disc but also an artbook of more than 100 pages and the soundtrack in CD format. Pre-orders are already open!
Trek to Yomi will be available in physical edition on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 from September 30, 2022.
