Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Sequel Uncertain But Considers TV / Film Development

Ember Lab fans might see Kena in different creative mediums apart from the gameplay.

The protagonist of the game, Kena is a young spirit guide seeking an abandoned village to discover a sacred mountain shrine. She goes in her quest with the help of spirits and adorable black creatures known as the Rot. Kena with its rich visuals and adorable friends is being compared with the animation works of Pixar or DreamWorks animation studios. 

  • Unlike developers of video games releasing franchises, Ember Lab does not intend to direct the Kena sequel. However, the studio might branch out to some other mediums of media resonating with Kena.
  • The comparison between the designing of the characters of the game and the works of Pixar or DreamWorks indicates the development of Kena into a motion film. 

Different Creative Mediums

On asking, during an interview with SoulVision Magazine, Mike and Josh, the founders of Ember Lab, expressed their uncertainty regarding Kena: Bridge of Spirits sequel. Josh blatantly mentioned during the interview that they might hold off on a sequel. “I don’t know if we will do a direct sequel next,” Josh asserts. “It may be another IP, in the same style—in terms of gameplay and the story-driven experience”, he adds. Nevertheless, they are definitely going to experiment with Kena in different creative mediums. 

“Exploring and taking it (Kena) into a more linear experience like a TV show or film is a possibility,”
– Josh grier
