Daily news (August 21st, Round 5): Windbound / Inertial Drift

Today’s Daily news: latest trailer for Windbound, but also…

  • Inertial Drift
  • NBA 2K21
  • Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2
  • Aokana – Four Rhythms Across the Blue
  • Paper Mario: The Origami King


Deep Silver and 5 Lives Studio have shared the latest trailer for Windbound, this time focusing on the Mural Story:

“Kara.” The mural speaks of her name. It warns of a treacherous path that lies ahead in her heroic voyage through ancient lands and the seas that surround them; fulfilling a destiny that is shrouded in a long-forgotten history with its remnants scattered like whispers throughout the lands.

She must fight through The Forbidden Islands and face its storm to return to her tribe, but it will take time and perseverance to understand its true nature, as unexpected dangers test her resolve and will to survive.

You can find more details about the mural in this post from the developers!

Also, starting today, the game is available for pre-purchase on the Nintendo eShop. Players who buy the game before September 10th will get the following bonuses:

  • Ancestral Attire This treasured garment – fit for either a warrior or a priest – has been handed down from generation to generation, and now the time has come for Kara to honor her past.
  • Ancestral Oar The Oceanic Gyre was revered in times past, though its true significance is enigmatic to Kara’s people today. Nevertheless, this salt-treated wooded oar remains sturdy and functional, despite its age. 
  • Ancestral Knife How or where the ancestors acquired these Sea Shards remains a mystery, but few would deny their efficacy. Luminous, durable and impossibly sharp, this blade cuts as well today as it did a hundred years ago. 

To Kara’s tribe, the exploits of her ancestors are legendary. Hunters, fishers, warriors, poets and philosophers, their stories tell of a people who lived in perfect harmony with the natural world and swam the deep waters in the company of gods. Though the tale of their downfall has been lost to time, their legacy lives on in these artifacts that have endured to this day. 

NB: in Japan, the bonuses will be available for free from September 2nd to September 15th.
