It seems the PlayStation 4 version of Kena: Bridge of Spirits is suffering from one or two nasty glitches on release day as users report a game-breaking bug encountered when using the Taro Mask halts their progress. At the time of writing, nobody seems to have encountered the issue on PS5. The mask is used to progress through the main story, and PS4 users are having problems with removing it from Kena's face once it's no longer needed. The camera gets stuck in the first-person perspective and essentially renders the game unplayable.
It appears the only way of fixing the bug is to reload your save but, of course, there's just as good a chance you'll encounter the glitch again when the Taro Mask is needed later on in the story. The issue is being reported enough across the internet that developer Ember Lab is likely already aware of the problem and is busy working on a fix. Until then, however, it seems PS4 players will have to put up with this flaw.
Our own Push Square user Shigurui encountered the problem too, writing on the forum: "You can't remove it once equipped, the camera freaks out and gets stuck in first-person mode. It completely halts game progression. How this wasn't caught is beyond belief. Stuck with a digital coaster until it gets patched. Highly unimpressed." Are you also having trouble with this bug?
