A Kena: Bridge of Spirits Update Will Add New Game+ and More

Kena: Bridge of Spirits

Kena: Bridge of Spirits is getting a heaping helping of free anniversary content, with an update arriving this September 27th.

The update doesn’t add any new story content, but given that Kena: Bridge of Spirits’ ending was fairly conclusive, that’s not a huge surprise. Instead, developer Ember Lab has a whole range of little extras in store. We gave this action-adventure a massive 10/10, and a big “awww” for its cutesy Rot companions, so we’re definitely up for more Kena.

So what’s in store? For a start, the content (dubbed the Anniversary Update) will add a New Game+ mode. You’ll be able to replay the game with all your unlocked abilities and if that sounds like it’s going to be too easy, think again. New Game+ will add new enemy types tougher combat and ensure that you’re not in for a cakewalk.

On top of that, the game is receiving:

  • Charmstones (a new type of collectible, some containing a buff and debuff)
  • Spirit Guide Trials (a fast-action mode featuring obstacle courses and more)
  • New outfits (unlocked via Spirit Guide Trials)

In short, if you’ve not touched the game in a while, it’s a good excuse to go back. And if you are still regularly teaming up with your cute but gross-sounding Rot companions, the New Game+ and Trials modes should tax you a little more.

Kena: Bridge of Spirits is available on PS4, PS5 and PC. The free Anniversary Update will arrive this September 27th.

Weekend Editor // Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
