Trek to Yomi: Way of the Samurai

I have to admit that Trek to Yomi wasn’t on my radar until I was contacted by the local PR team about possible preview codes. Heck, I didn’t even know the game existed until that point.

Well, two trailers later, Trek to Yomi is well and truly on my radar. My “yes please when can I play this game?” radar.

Set in feudal Japan, the game has a real Akira Kurosawa vibe to it and comes from game designer Leonard Menchari (Riot: Civil Unrest, The Eternal Castle), studio Flying Wild Hog and publisher Devolver Digital. Players will face off against myriad enemies across beautiful and terrifying lands, including spearmen, archers, riflemen and even beings believed to be nothing more than folk tales and Menchari has said on social media that the game is inspired by “old Japanese cinemas from the 1950s and 60s.”

You can watch the latest trailer here:

The game’s rather sparse website says it’s coming Spring 2022, which I’m assuming is the Northern Hemisphere, so that means, hopefully, it’ll be out in the three months or so, given the country I live in is heading into Autumn soon.

Colour me very, very intrigued.
