Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess gets a new gameplay trailer

Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess

Capcom has released a new trailer for Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess, their intriguing action strategy game that is coming out later this year for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC – it’ll be day one on Xbox Game Pass, as well.

In Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess, a sacred mountain of Mt. Kafuku has been ruined and defiled by the people that live on it, which has allowed a breach between the human and spirit worlds. The Seethe are the blight that come through the breach, defiling the world further. To reverse this the Spirit Stone Maiden needs to perform a rite of cleansing, but needs a protector and guide to reach her goal, and to banish the Seethe once more.

The problem is that the 12 masks and the powers they bestow upon their wearer have been stolen, so Soh, the player protagonist, and Yoshiro, the maiden, must work together to purge and cleanse villages of the Seethe.

You won’t solely be in charge of Soh, as you can ally yourself with villagers and take them with you into battle. You’ll prepare for battle during the day, by cleansing the village, rescuing villagers to join you and repairing contraptions to give and advantage, before then protecting both the Maiden and the village from the evil spirits at night, granting villagers masks to help power them up. What faces you is a blend of real time strategy and action against the Seethe.

The game, as you might have picked up on, is steeped in Japanese folklore and culture. The new trailer features Kagura, traditional dances derives from Shinto religion, while the Seethe take on demonic shapes and forms that have been inspired by Japanese Yokai.

It’s a really interesting looking game and we can’t wait to see more of it later this year.
