As a fan of Metroidvanias and quirky robots, KUNAI immediately caught my attention. Which is funny, since apparently it didn’t start out as a Metroidvania, but I’m thankful it evolved into one. It follows the tale of a sentient tablet on his quest to slay evil forces. KUNAI features big, bold art and tight and fast action, and I really enjoyed it when I got hands on it recently at PAX West. But that’s not the best news.
The best news is the fact that KUNAI is coming out really, really soon. February, in fact. Yes, KUNAI is slated to release on both PC and Nintendo Switch on February 6th, 2020. That’s tremendous news for all fans of the genre, and I have high hopes for KUNAI. But assuming you cannot wait to try the game out, you’re in luck. At least if you’re in Texas. Because this unique game is going to have a demo available at PAX South this weekend, over at booth #19019. So if you happen to be attending that event, you owe it to yourself to check out this tremendous title developed by Turtle Blaze and published by The Arcade Crew.
Oh, what’s that? You still demand more KUNAI? Well then just avail yourselves at this lovely boss trailer below. I’ll be counting the days until February 6th.
