Black-and-white cinematic samurai adventure Trek to Yomi now has a release date, and will arrive on May 5.

Publisher Devolver Digital made the announcement alongside a new extended gameplay trailer it released earlier today. The footage offers Bushido fans a whopping fifteen minutes of sword fighting action, exploration and some very stylish set pieces.

To get you up to speed, you play as young swordsman named Hiroki. The samurai has made an oath to protect his town and the people in it against all threats. As these things tend to do, disaster strikes his village soon enough, putting his oath to the test. He’ll have to traverse the lands between life and death to both avenge and decide his future path.

The game leans heavily on its influences of classic samurai films, which you can see throughout the footage below. You’ll have to fight off foes both human and otherworldly, using the game’s “streamlined combat system”. The game was first revealed last June during Devolver Digital’s regular Summer showcase as part of the Summer Games Fest of 2021.

Trek to Yomi will release on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One on May 5 and will be available on launch via Xbox Game Pass.
