Highway to hell
Trek to Yomi isn't much of a trek, to be honest. This tribute to classic samurai cinema is only a few hours long at most, taking place across just a handful of story chapters. But what Trek to Yomi lacks in longevity, it makes up for in sheer atmosphere and spectacle. It's a superbly crafted indie adventure from a visual point of...
Plus or minus?
It's crazy to think we're almost halfway through 2023, isn't it? That means we've had six of these PS Plus Essential polls throughout the year already, but June's line up might just be one of the most divisive selections yet. In case you missed the news, subscribers are getting three games across both PS5 and PS4 this month:...
There will be blood
Trek to Yomi is out tomorrow (that's the 5th May) on PS5 and PS4, so it's about time that we got a stylish launch trailer. The indie samurai slash-'em-up has always looked great in select footage — even if it was a little bit janky in that last gameplay video. Anyway, it won't be long until you can put Hiroki's steel to the...
A cut above
SEGA really dropped the ball earlier this week when it officially announced Sonic Origins. The remastered collection should be cause for celebration — it sounds like a great way to experience Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic CD, and Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuck
The final trek
If you've been waiting on extended gameplay footage for samurai slasher Trek to Yomi, then today's your lucky day. Devolver Digital has posted a whole 15 minutes of uncut footage, and the title continues to impress — even if it does look a bit janky at times. We imagine that the proof will be in the pudding. Trek to Yomi also has a...
Blood and steel
Trek to Yomi is looking very promising indeed. The 2D samurai action adventure clearly has oodles of atmosphere, thanks to that Kurosawa movie-inspired, black and white aesthetic. It just needs to nail some satisfying gameplay to marry up with that look, and we should be onto a winner. With this latest trailer, it looks as though the...
Live by the blade
Samurai slasher Trek to Yomi still shows heaps of promise in its new trailer, which debuted as part of Sony's latest State of Play broadcast. This atmospheric action title has held our attention since its initial announcement, and it's nice to see that it's still on course for a Spring 2022 release window. Hopefully we get a...
By the blade
Okay, you might be thinking that Trek to Yomi is 2022's only samurai game, but come on — this thing looks great. First announced back in the summer, Trek to Yomi is a samurai cinema-inspired action game that mostly seems to function on a 2D plane. It continues to look very promising in this latest trailer, which confirms a targeted...
Live by the sword
With its feudal Japanese setting and emphasis on sword-based combat, upcoming indie title Trek to Yomi is giving us serious Ghost of Tsushima vibes. This is a side-scrolling action game, and it definitely shows promise in the above trailer. It's slashing its way to PlayStation 5 at some point in 2022, but are you ready to spill...
