Early in May, the critically acclaimed samurai action game will be released.
When is the release date for Trek to Yomi?
Trek to Yomi is an action-adventure game with a story about a young samurai who is trying to protect his hometown. The game was first revealed in 2021 with a vague release date of 2022, however the game’s publisher, Devolver Digital, has stated that it will be released on May 5 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and PC.
A 15-minute gameplay clip accompanied the announcement, showing Hiroki, the game’s protagonist, fighting through waves of opponents in an attempt to repel an invading force.
The plot follows a very standard pattern: a young swordsman (you) must embark on a long trip to save his besieged town. Because, while it’s a story-driven game, it’s also an action game, you’ll be mastering the different “traditional weapons of the samurai” along the way.
The game’s monochromatic color scheme resembles the grainy, black-and-white visual aesthetic found in films by renowned Japanese filmmaker Akira Kurosawa, including Seven Samurai and Yojimbo. Leonard Menchiari, the game’s director, noted that the game was “influenced by vintage Japanese film from the 1950s and 1960s.”
