Capcom has announced its latest game, Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess, blending action and resource management. This was revealed during the Summer Game Fest on June 7, 2024. The game will be released on July 19, 2024, and will be available on multiple platforms, including PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC via Steam, and through Xbox Game Pass on launch day.

Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess is set in a beautifully crafted world inspired by traditional Japanese aesthetics. Players will control Soh, a swordsman with a mission to protect his village from the Seethe, a malevolent force. During the day, players must cleanse the village of corruption and rescue villagers. At night, they must defend the village and the Maiden Yoshiro from waves of Seethe. The gameplay mixes action and strategy, requiring players to make quick decisions and coordinate with villagers to fend off the threats.

The game features a unique mechanic where, if Soh’s health is depleted, he enters a “Spirit State.” In this state, Soh cannot fight but can command villagers to protect Yoshiro. This adds a layer of strategy, as players must manage resources and plan their defenses carefully to succeed.

The game also includes a unique visual style powered by Capcom’s RE Engine, known for its stunning graphics and fluid animations. The trailer showcased during the Summer Game Fest highlighted the game’s vibrant colors and detailed environments, drawing comparisons to other Capcom titles like Okami.

Pre-ordering the game grants players exclusive in-game items such as the Mazo Talismans “Walking Basket” and “Astral Projection,” and a digital mini artbook featuring concept art from the game.

Capcom has a strong legacy of creating innovative and visually impressive games, and Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess seems to continue this tradition. The combination of strategic gameplay and action elements, along with its unique setting, has generated significant excitement among fans.

The game’s announcement and upcoming release on July 19 are part of Capcom’s broader strategy to introduce fresh and engaging titles to its lineup. With the game’s mix of strategy, action, and beautiful design, Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess is poised to be a standout title this summer​.
