A Picture Mode trailer additionally dropped in the present day. Kena has no scarcity of awe-inspiring vistas, vivid magical results, and endearing character fashions. Taking photos, nevertheless, amplifies these attractive visuals, and a “Say Cheese!” choice lets Kena and her pals correctly pose for the digital camera. I’ve by no means seen this part in a online game earlier than (as I mentioned above, I often don’t activate in-game picture modes – possibly a few of you’ve got seen a function like this earlier than?). However, the sport’s allure and heat undoubtedly come via. I can’t wait to see all of the pictures that gamers put up on social media. Who is aware of, possibly I’ll lastly seize some reminiscences of my very own.
