Kena: Bridge of Spirits patch notes are here and developer Ember Lab has rolled out a new update that fixes a few minor bugs and adds a highly requested feature to the game.

Following the 1.05 update, players are now able to activate photo mode whilst interacting with their gathering of Rots. A feature that wasn't available in the game prior to the update and caused a lot of the adorable spirits' actions to go un-snapped. 

In Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Kena is able to interact with her faithful companions and trigger exchanges with them with the use of on-screen buttons. Whilst sitting crossed-legged with the Rot at her feet, Kena can ask them to give her a peck on the cheek, perform a little dance, and even do a cute sneeze on command.

Speaking of Kena: Bridge of Spirits’ photo mode, it actually does more than just capture precious Rot moments. The photo mode has both a 'Freeze' and 'Cheese' button, with the first allowing players to take action shots, and the latter encouraging all characters within the frame to pose in a variety of endearing ways.

The rest of the update is made up of mostly minor bug fixes and a few small adjustments. You can read all of the changes that were made below, as well as on Ember Lab’s website.

  • Enabled photo mode when sitting with the Rot.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at University, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became GamesRadar's trainee news writer where I get to spread the word about the goings-on in the video game world. My expertise lies in Animal Crossing related topics after spending the last 15 years immersing myself in island life. I also know a thing or two about The Last of Us, and way too much about the Kingdom Hearts series.
