Side-Scrolling Samurai Action Game Trek to Yomi Coming in 2022
Trek to Yomi tells the story of a young swordsman fighting to save his people, and keep his word to his late master. The game's reveal trailer released today during Devolver Digital's E3 2021 showcase, and it showed off what seems to be a heavily Kurosawa-inspired visual style mixed with what looks to be some engaging combat.
The game is being developed by Leonard Menchiari and Flying Wild Hog (the same Wild Hog also working on Shadow Warrior 3), and it is currently set to release for PC, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S sometime in 2022. There's currently no release date beyond that.
Everything in the Trek to Yomi reveal trailer is, according to a small blurb at the beginning of the trailer, actual gameplay. It also reveals glimpses at the game's story, which follows "the young swordsman Hiroki [who] is sworn to protect his town and the people he loves against all threats. Faced with tragedy and bound to duty, the lone samurai must voyage beyond life and death to confront himself and decide his path forward."
Trek to Yomi can be wishlisted on Steam now. It is not currently up on the PlayStation Store or the Microsoft Store. Stay tuned for more.
