Wild Hearts Trailer
Wild Hearts is in Azuma, a fantasy landscape inspired by feudal Japan. Nature-induced beasts, usually living peacefully, are now rampaging through the countryside, altering their surroundings at the cost of citizens' lives. After a terrifying fight with the Winter Wolf Deathstalker, you become the bearer of a life-sustaining technology. You are forced to restore balance throughout the region as your power grows.
Hunt Down Giant Nature-Infused Beasts: Kemono is creatures that have undergone a unique evolution to blend in with their environment and use nature's power to reshape their environment to suit their needs. You will encounter Kemono of all sizes - from the plant-combined squirrel to the giant Kingtusk wild boar, the Deathstalker's ferocious wolf, and many more. These enormous creatures use the forces of nature to defend their new territories.
Prepare Your Fighting Ground: Ancient Karakuri technology enables you to design and build new, highly flexible, and creative hunting grounds to take down giant kimonos. Stock up on materials to create many types of Karakuri depending on your needs, skills, and which Kimono you're fighting. Each new Kimono you defeat unlocks new Karakuri and new resources to use.
Pack Hunter or Lone Wolf - Wild Hearts' co-op and crossplay features allow you and up to two friends to hunt Kemono together. Pack Hunting enables you to expand your battle plan with more building abilities and special missions. As a lone wolf, you can seamlessly join and help other hunters in multiplayer mode through the Torri system, or you can fight the giant beasts yourself.
Gear Up to Hunt, Hunt to Gear Up - You can become the most excellent hunter by collecting materials from each hunt and environment and crafting unique sets of armor with different variations. With special weapons to choose from and plenty of variety, there's a fighting style for everyone, each with a different gameplay pace and attack. You can craft gear with elements from defeated Kimono, further customizing it to suit your play style.
