Kena: Bridge of Spirits Has Already Recouped Its Development Costs

Kena: Bridge of Spirits was released in September to largely positive reviews (including a 9 out of 10 from us) and has performed well in sales. So much so that, according to developer Ember Labs, the game has already broken even on its development cost. In an interview with Bloomberg, Ember Lab heads Josh and Mike Grier discussed Kena's road from development to release. To their surprise, the game has apparently sold well, and while they don't divulge specific sale numbers, they say it's already recouped its initial development costs. It's unclear how much money Kena had behind it, but this is great news for the small studio.  "It's hard to tell what's a huge success," said Josh in the article. "Sony's happy." Kena: Bridge of Spirits is a third-person action-adventure title that stars Kena, a spirit guide, who guides small critters called the Rot to purify a land plagued by a supernatural blight. Along the way, you'll assist wayward souls to help ferry them to the afterlife, while action consists of melee and ranged combat. The game has an old-school linear design and scope, plus it's quite the looker in the art department (Ember Labs cut its teeth as an animation studio, after all). Kena is available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC via the Epic Games Store.  Be sure to read the full interview to learn more about the Kena: Bridge of Spirits' pre-release marketing, as well as our coverage hub for extensive background on the game itself.

    SZA made her triumphant go back to the stage with a emotional and high-energy performance. Speculation concerning whether she’d perform or not was a hot topic of conversation through the entire festival because of her taking out of The Championship Tour after announcing that her vocal chords were permanently damaged. When she took to the Backyard stage fans were in tears literally. And she didn’t disappoint, delivering hits like Supermodel and All of the Stars and nailing her high notes masterfully. Welcome back, Queen! As SZA wrapped and sunlight set across festival grounds, fans hustled to the primary Stage to catch Pulitzer Prize-winning rapper, Kendrick Lamar. Anticipation grew because the infamous FOX News sound-byte played. The crowd exploded when Kendrick took the stage amidst literal fireworks to execute his opener, DNA., the next track off his 2017 album, DAMN.. It had been his birthday and the crowd was celebrating King Kendrick definitely.
