Wild Hearts takes place in Azuma, a fantasy landscape inspired by feudal Japan, now ravaged by the once peaceful Kemono. These Kemonos range from plant-infused squirrels to the massive creatures seen in the trailer above, like the Kingtusk wild boar.

The game will feature co-op gameplay that will allow you and up to two other friends to battle Kemono. Plus, it will also feature cross-play, so PlayStation players can play with friends on Xbox and vice versa. Same goes for PCs.
