At The Game Awards today, EA Originals & KOEI TECMO revealed their Ferocious Creatures trailer, offering hunters a closer look at some of the largest Kemono they’ll face in battle when the upcoming AAA hunting game launches on the PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S and PC on February 17, 2023.

Causing a real threat to Azuma’s fantasy landscape, Kemono are giant beasts that have fused with their environments, wielding the power of nature to reshape their surroundings to suit their needs and battle for territory. Players will encounter all types of Kemono in WILD HEARTSTM – from plant-infused squirrels to the massive Kingtusk wild boar and many more – as they traverse the world. The new trailer showcases three of the most powerful Kemono players will take on, including Deathstalker the savage wolf, Amaterasu the giant hawk, and for the first time Golden Tempest, the ferocious, unforgiving tiger and its tornado of sand and gold.
