WILD HEARTS’ Largest Post-Launch Update Brings New Kemono & Karakuri on April 6
EA Originals and KOEI TECMO revealed that the first April post-launch content update for its AAA hunting game, WILD HEARTS, is set to go live on April 6 PT.
Introducing an entirely new Kemono species, the wind-wielding Murakumo, players will encounter this fox-type threat as spring is sprung in Azuma. The mighty Murakumo courses through the air on sakura blossom platforms and has the ability to create a multitude of menacing, petal-manipulating attacks. If players get too close, the vulpine beast’s thunderous tornado could leave them unconscious.
Check out the new Lethal Blossoms Trailer HERE.
Hunters can fight against this beast with the new Spinning Top Fusion Karakuri. Gaining speed and power as it hits each obstacle, the Spinning Top closes in to deliver an effective assault and can even stagger an attacking Kemono. This update also features the addition of the new Limit Break system, allowing hunters to use Core Orbs – which can be obtained through successful Kemono hunts – to enhance their current weapons and armor.

Players can also look forward to another content update later this month, which will introduce a new Deeply Volatile Kemono, Deathhaze Gloombeak, along with the new Serial Hunts special quest and more.
WILD HEARTS is available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC via the EA App, Steam and Epic Game Store for $69.99.
