Kena: Bridge of Spirits is one of the standout games announced for the PlayStation 5 thus far, but it will not be available physically at launch. Responding to a question about the possibility of a retail release, developer Ember Lab explained that it will be looking into deploying boxed copies of the pretty platformer “later on”.
It’s perfectly possible that plans could change prior to launch, of course – especially with this game attracting such enormous attention from both fans and the media alike. Sony has stepped in to help with physical copies of smaller titles in the past, such as Tetris Effect, so don’t rule out that possibility either. We’ll hopefully learn more as PS5’s launch line-up gets locked in.
