EA and Koei Tecmo have announced that their recently released hunting game, Wild Hearts, will receive a post-launch content update on April 6, 2023, introducing the new wind Kemono species, Murakumo.
This fox-like creature navigates via sakura blossom platforms and can attack players with petal-induced attacks. Further, close-ranged bouts may prove troublesome, as the Murakumo can shoot out counteracting tornadoes.
Thankfully, players will obtain the new Spinning Top Fusion Karakuri, which gains enhanced power and speed as it collides with objects. Moreover, the new Limit Break mechanic has been implemented, letting players utilize Core Orbs earned from successful hunts to strengthen their equipment.
The companies also announced that another update will arrive in April, incorporating the “Deeply Volatile Kemono, Deathhaze Gloombeak, along with the new Serial Hunts special quest and more.”
Additional details regarding this upcoming update can be viewed via the latest official Wild Hearts blog post.

Wild Hearts is set in a place called Azuma where Kemono roam, but the sizes of these creatures vary. 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. During gameplay, players will journey across Azume alone or with up to two players to take on missions and hunt creators.
The title’s Karakuri system is emphasized as the crux of the combat. These tools have been crafted from ancient technology, giving its users advantages when battling Kemono beasts and traversing environments. Crafting, new forms, and arrays of combinations are what players will have to embrace during their bouts.
Additionally, laying traps and understanding the surrounding terrain is imperative for getting the upper hand against Kemono beasts, doubly so in large parties where strategy is crucial.
Wild Hearts is available for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC (Steam, Epic Game Store, and EA App). If you missed it, check out our review.
