Kitsune Tails, by Guerrilla Collective, platformer styled after beloved classics steeped in Japanese mythology and diverse relationships from developer Kitsune Games in collaboration with MidBoss™ and published for consoles by Ratalaika Games, will blossom on Nintendo Switch™ in Q1 2022.
Check out the trailer here.
This follow-up to Super Bernie World, which has more than 300,000 downloads across Steam and itch.io, will launch simultaneously with the previously announced PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Steam and itch.io versions on Windows and Linux.
A new trailer debuts footage of the earth-element rice farmer and snow fox outfits’ special abilities in action. Also making its first appearance, the protagonist’s weak yet adorable fox form serves as one last chance at survival before her death.
Run, jump, and drill into enemies across five 8-bit worlds inspired by Japanese mythology. Master elemental abilities hidden in cute outfits like an earthy rice farmer wielding a powerful jump attack and a snow fox freezing enemies to make new platforms. Power up with stolen skills like a giant rideable boot or an antique samurai spear. Revisit levels with newfound abilities for secrets and side quests to unlock the best ending for Kitsune Tails’ queer romance.
Yuzu begins her quest to prove to her kitsune clan, her extended family of fox-people, that her human side won’t stop her from faithfully serving as a divine messenger for the goddess Inari. However, the friendly healer Akko saves the half-kitsune hero from a mishap on her first adventure, planting the seed for a budding lesbian romance with Yuzu… and creating a jealous rival in Yuzu’s childhood friend and member of the kitsune nobility, Kiri.
“Love takes many forms, but one of the things that makes love special is it can be a vehicle for self-actualization,” said Emma ‘Eniko’ Maassen, Kitsune Games founder. “Players will need to master outfits and abilities to find all the hidden story content and unlock the best ending, and along the way they’ll explore the relationships between Yuzu, Akko, and Kiri and watch the three women grow into better versions of themselves.”
