Diverse platformer gameplay
André Schaan, CEO of Brazilian development studio PixelHive, is enthusiastic to see their game come to console. “Ever since the early development stages, we’ve always held a console version for the game in mind. Kaze and the Wild Masks embraces all the classic 90’s platformer elements and we believe that both the Steam and console versions will truly complement the game in their own way. We can’t wait to bring nostalgic, yet modern-looking gameplay to today’s consoles.”

Besides running and jumping, players can acquire masks’ and utilize the masks’ powers to perform special abilities such as flying in the air and swimming underwater.
