EA’s answer to Monster Hunter, Wild Hearts is getting regular support. With a game all about taking down big, extravagant beasts, it is a good sign that more and more are invading the game.
Developer Omega Force is planning not one, but two updates this month. The first, in celebration of Spring and the cycle of rebirth, will feature a blossoming new enemy. The new Kemono is called Murakumo. It is a vulpine beast that manipulates the petals of Sakura blossoms. Its attacks blow the petals about dangerously and it is able to seemingly run through the air on a path of petals.
To hunt the Murakumo, there is a new Karakuri to add to your arsenal. While we will have to wait a couple of days to see it in action, the Spinning Top sounds as dangerous as it sounds ridiculous.
Wild Hearts has a bunch of traditional weapons, so a Spinning Top might sound unorthodox. However, “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.” Hopefully, it does not harm its user, but if it does, it will become a liability if you are unprepared.
Omega Force is also adding a Limit Break system. *Square Enix lawyers have entered the chat* Limit Breaks can enhance any piece of armor or weapon. To apply a Limit Break, you can use Core Orbs on your gear, which can be dropped from Volatile Kemono. These enhancements can only be used a certain number of times, so keep them in your back pocket for emergencies only.
Wild Hearts is available for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S.
