'Kunai' (ALL) Release Date Set For Next Month - Trailer

by Rainier on Jan. 14, 2020 @ 7:16 a.m. PST

Kunai is a Metroidvania adventure best explored through ninja-tier parkour and best survived with razor sharp combat reflexes.

A traumatic event has shaken the balance of the world. Human life has been mostly wiped out. Robots roam free across the earth. Take control of Tabby, a killer robot infused with the soul of an ancient warrior, and find out its true purpose in this world.

Players dish out swift death as Tabby, Kunai’s emotive, tablet-powered hero infused with the soul of an ancient Japanese warrior. Tabby boots up to find humanity on the brink of extinction thanks to a famed inventor’s botched AI creation, setting out to solve things as any consumer electronic warrior hybrid would: with heaps of violence. Slicing baddies and soaring through Kunai’s sprawling world with Tabby is a joyous escape, and toppling the land’s merciless bosses in all-out showdowns is immensely satisfying.

Start out with nothing, progress and increase in strength by killing enemy robots to unlock abilities, weapons and kickass ninja tricks to move in style. Explore a world filled with secrets, hidden passages and mysterious characters. Kunai is all about movement and agility. Use your ninja mobility to reach places where no normal robot could ever go.

Fighting through Kunai’s visually enrapturing world is a warrior’s delight, where right off the bat players have ample opportunities to reduce enemies to scrap metal while swinging on ropes across chasms, dashing up walls to lofty goals, and dropping in on unsuspecting targets. Kunai’s journey is dialled to 11 from the start, with every badass fight, supremely lethal upgrade and unearthed secret sending the adventure further off the charts. Bursts of action pop boldly across Kunai’s distinct art direction with sharp splashes of color accentuating attacks, making each battle an engrossing, thrilling spectacle.

Use your ninja mobility to explore the different pixel art environments of Kunai with its minimalistic palettes that sublimes its aesthetic while Tabby makes cute faces.

This new trailer gives a glimpse of the pivotal showdowns players will need to overcome to succeed with their mission. Dispatched by their evil commander Lemonkus to curb any resistance to the new mechanically inclined world, these powerful foes will demand faultless reflexes as well as a mastery of blade and bullets:

Key Features:

  • Be a freaking ninja
  • A huge Metroidvania Open World to explore
  • An arsenal of ninja moves at your disposal
  • Throw your kunai left and right to move in style
  • Beautiful graphics and unique art direction

Kunai will reach PC (Steam) and Nintendo Switch on February 6, 2020.
