Description of WILD HEARTS
Published by EA Originals and developed by Omega Force, WILD HEARTS will take players on an epic adventure set in feudal fantasy Japan. In this game, they will battle a giant beast called Kemono with the help of Karakuri, an advanced mech created from ancient lost technology.
WILD HEARTS takes place in Azuma, a fantasy landscape inspired by feudal Japan now ravaged by the once-peaceful Kemono, changing their environment at the cost of citizens’ lives.
Kemonos range from plant-embedded squirrels to the enormous Kingtusk wild boar. After a harrowing battle with the winter wolf Deathstalker, players become carriers of life-sustaining technology and are forced to restore balance across the region.
In WILD HEARTS, players travel through Azuma as a lone wolf or hunt together with up to two friends thanks to the game’s co-op and cross-play features across all platforms.
Players can expand their battle plans and perform special missions while hunting packs, joining forces with other hunters in the world, or taking on Kemono. The game will feature dubbing in English, Japanese, French, Italian, German and Spanish.
Release on 17 February 2023
WILD HEARTS opens up a vivid fantasy world for players that is wild and wonderful. With WILD HEARTS, we not only wanted to show the evolution, infusion, and real threat caused by Kemono, but we also wanted to create a game where crafting is the core of the experience and redefine what is possible in a beast hunting game.
We took great care in designing our Karakuri to match the combat and we’re thrilled that players are using these powerful mechs to fight giant beasts and traverse the world.Yosuke Hayashi, Executive Vice President of Koei Tecmo Games
