Kunitsu-Gami: Path Of The Goddess Coming To Xbox Game Pass This Year

A new gameplay trailer for the upcoming single-player action-adventure game was revealed during the latest Xbox Partner Preview.


During its March 2024 Partner Preview, Xbox announced that Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess is launching for Xbox Series X|S, PS5, and PC this year. The game will be available on day one on Xbox Game Pass.

Developed by Capcom, Path of the Goddess sees you play Soh, a masked warrior tasked with defending the villages around Mt. Kafuku. The game is divided into two different styles of play: Daytime and Nighttime. During the day, Soh must fight their way to trapped villagers and work to free them, recruiting additional fighters to the cause and creating more defenses for your home base. At night, Soh must rely on those defenses while fighting off hordes of enemy spirits. This adds an element of real-time strategy to what's otherwise an action-adventure game.

Now Playing: Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess - Gameplay Trailer "Kagura" | Xbox Partner Preview

The Xbox Partner Preview showcased more of what this looks like in practice, including how battles against "Festering Seethe" will go. Festering Seethe are larger, tougher evil spirits that seem to act more like mini-boss battles, presenting opportunities for the action-adventure side of the game to really come into focus. More of Path of the Goddess will be shown off during a Capcom Highlights livestream on March 7.

In a statement to Xbox Wire, director Shuichi Kawata said, "After releasing Shinsekai: Into the Depths four years ago, we're ready to open a new chapter for players around the world to enjoy. [Path of the Goddess] features a very distinct blend of action and strategy genres and takes strong inspiration from various elements of Japanese culture. With all of that, we're excited (and maybe a little nervous…in a good way!) to have everyone experience this game. We are currently in the final stages of development, and the team is working hard to be able to deliver the best experience this game can offer, so we hope you look forward to it."
