Believe it or not, we desire aged Japanese samurai movies. Those black and white cinematic classics are still utterly breathtaking, even today. The countrysides, the fight stages, and of course the legends themselves- there’s nothing else like them. So, when we decided that our latest activity would be inspired by those iconic cinemas, we couldn’t help but to get giddy inside.
We’re proud to present to you what we’ve been working on for months, Trek to Yomi. We hope you’re as agitated to see it as we are to show you!
In Trek to Yomi, you are a young fighter referred Hiroki. Before your dying ruler passed out, you obliged him a hope- to protect the town and the people you adore against all menaces. Unfortunately, fate had another plan, and tragedy struck your hamlet. Bound to the promise you saw, you will go on a voyage beyond life and death to confront those that did you wrong as well as yourself. The road laid out before you can take countless turns- will you choose to statu your dedicates or follow the path of revenge?
We wanted to recreate the atmosphere of 19 th century Japan in every step you’ll take and place you’ll visit. Trek to Yomi takes region in the 1850 s, during the Edo dynasty. All the dialogue that you will hear is enunciated in the Japanese expression from that time. We have a historical consultant on board that specialises in 18 th century Japanese lingo, and they helped us wreaking the Edo period to life in the most faithful way possible.
Combat is a big part of Trek to Yomi and we arranged extra increased emphasis on how the characters move and react in order to constitute the experience feel authentic. You will learn to swing the traditional samurai katana with deadly dexterity, amongst other historic weaponry such as the ranged kowtow, ozutsu and bo-shurikens. Thanks to our combat-actors, combat is as symmetrical as the encircles themselves. We have also secured the amazing team at Emperia Sounds( Resident Evil, Devil May Cry) who are working with a melodic director& historian that has samurai heritage from the 12 th century. The crew is ensuring that our soundtrack has authenticity in its phone, further immersing musicians in feudal Japan.
We hope that what you discovered intrigued you. We are likely to be disclosing more about Trek to Yomi over the coming months, so stay aria! We can’t wait to bring the game to players around the world and thank you for spending some time with us.
