EA and Koei Tecmo Game






Will be released on February 17, 2023

Coming to PS5, XSX/S and PC (Steam, EGS, Origin)


The new AAA fantasy adventure game "inspired by feudal Japan" and coming from EA and Koei Tecmo 


WILD HEARTS takes place in Azuma, a fantasy landscape inspired by feudal Japan, that is now rampaged by the once peaceful Kemono—altering their environment at the cost of citizens’ lives. The Kemono range from plant-infused squirrels to the massive Kingtusk wild boar. After a dreadful fight with the winter wolf Deathstalker, players become bearers of a life-sustaining technology and are compelled to restore balance across the region.

In WILD HEARTS, players journey through Azuma as a lone wolf or pack-hunt 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 go on special missions while pack hunting, join other hunters in the world or take on Kemono on their own.

Few Details


- Wild Hearts Dev time is 4 years; chose to reveal it when there was as little gap between announcement to release as possible
- Large Zone-based world with open world feel; any point can be explored or reached with Karakuri
- Flexible crafting system called Karakuri; create hunting grounds, combinations, and instant builds for both combat and exploration
- Combat action oriented with on-the-fly crafting. Dashing, Jumping, Sliding, Grappling, etc.
- 3 Player Co-Op
- Next gen only; wanted to stick to new technology to flesh out the detailed fantasy feudal Japan setting and large world
- Partnered with EA for publishing as they aim for global audience
- Still a Japanese game at its core

WTF Feb 2023. That was really quick. They must have waited until they are 100% sure to announce it. Guess chances of delays are less.



It looks interesting. Will be keeping an eye on this.  

Yea, surprised that they announced a game so early to the release. This is actually good against the publishers who announce a game years before release and kill the hype.
