Although it was first released in 2017, Kenshō is making its way to the Nintendo Switch this spring.
The name of the game refers to two terms from the Japanese philosophical concept, Zen: “Ken,” which means “seeing,” and “shō,” which means “nature.” It is shō, nature — its pricelessness, beauty and fragility—that is at the heart of the game, which takes place in a surreal room.
Doors inside that room lead to different worlds and breathtaking environments, including lush jungles and stormy seas. The game of Kenshō tells its story through ingame cutscenes and emoji-style conversations that are fun to watch.
Here are a few of the highlighted Kenshō features.
- Rich visual experience
- Unique color-matching puzzle gameplay
- Physical environment and weather conditions
- Emoji-style fascinating storyline
- 11 original songs created by Oscar Rydelius to build a unique Kenshō atmosphere
