Electronic Arts and developer Omega Force have announced that the upcoming “Lethal Blossoms” update for WILD HEARTS will launch on April 6. The update will add new weapons, new armor, new quests, talisman skills, the new Murakumo Kemono type, as well as various new fixes and improvements. A new update trailer was also released. WILD HEARTS is available now for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via Steam, Epic Games Store, and the EA App.
New Kemono Species – Murakumo
Strange winds swirl the sakura blossoms, which fail to fall even long after spring has passed. When rumors spread of this eerie sight, parents warn their children to keep their distance. Knowing that should you wander too close, the vulpine fiend appears and spirits you away. For it is no mere wind; it is the Murakumo.
This Kemono’s plethora of petal-manipulating attacks are a real menace. It courses through the air on platforms made of sakura blossoms. Which, in turn, makes counterattacking tricky. When enraged, the vulpine beast unleashes a thunderous tornado that could easily leave you unconscious. Hunters would be wise to employ a Spinning Top Karakuri to fight against the beast.
New Karakuri – Spinning Top
Once unleashed, the Spinning Top closes in on prey to deliver a stubborn assault. Whenever it hits Kemono or other obstacles, it gains both speed and power. The Spinning Top can stagger Kemono given it has enough speed and power when it connects.
Limit Breaking Weapons, Armor
Hunters can use Core Orbs to further enhance weapons and armor. The number of times you can carry out such enhancements, and the effects they have, are different for each piece of equipment.
Core orbs can mainly be obtained by successfully hunting Volatile Kemono. The type of core orb dropped will depend on where you are hunting.
Additional Fixes, Improvements
The team is still working hard to pack in as many fixes, improvements and adjustments as possible. Be on the lookout for the full bulleted update notes on April 6. Thank you for your continued support and passion for WILD HEARTS.
Deathgaze Gloombeak, New Talisman Skill, New Special Quests: Serial Hunts, and New Chat Stamps and Emotes
The end of April is looking just as ferocious as the beginning! Make sure you’re prepared for another Deeply Volatile Kemono, Deathhaze Gloombeak, on April 20.
Perhaps even more formidable, the next content update ushers in a new type of special quest – Serial Hunts. How many Kemono will you be able to hunt before being overwhelmed?
