Those who are excited about finally getting their hands on Kena: Bridge of Spirits may be disappointed to learn that the game has been delayed once again. It was originally set for release for August 24. We won’t have to wait too long though, as the new release date has been set for September 21 of this year.
Ember Lab, the creators of Kena: Bridge of Spirits, made the announcement on July 28. They stated that the delay came with regret, but they felt it was necessary to push the game back in order to work on polishing it for all platforms. They also added that they wanted to ensure that Kena gave players the best experience possible.

This hasn’t been the first time that Kena: Bridge of Spirits has been delayed. Its original release was set for late 2020, but was pushed back to Q1 2021 due to the Ember Lab team facing the challenges of working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, the release date kept changing, first being March 2021, then August 24, and now this new release date of September 21. Hopefully, this will be the last time Kena is delayed.
Kena: Bridge of Spirits is a third-person action-adventure game that is set to be released on PS4/PS5 and Microsoft Windows (via the Epic Games store). Players will assume the role of Kena, the titular character, who is a young spirit guide who uses her magical powers to help the deceased move from the physical world to the spirit world. The game is story-driven and will feature exploration and fast-paced combat.
While this latest delay for the release of Kena: Bridge of Spirits may come as a disappointment, Ember Lab have done so for an important reason, to ensure that the game is the best it can be when it finally comes out.
