EA and Koei Tecmo have announced the third major update to hunting RPG Wild Hearts, adding a new Murakumo Kemono, a new Spinning Top Fusion Karakuri, and armor system upgrades on April 6.

This follows the first content update released on March 10, and the second content update released on March 23.

A new trailer and details can be found below, via EA. The full patch notes are here.

Wild Hearts released on February 17 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC (EASteamEpic).

Murakumo, Spinning Top Karakuri, Limit Break System, New Weapons & Armor Set


Spring has arrived! And with it, sakura blossoms and foxes taking cat naps on sakura blossoms. In April’s first content update for Wild Hearts, we’re introducing not only a new Fusion Karakuri, but also a brand new species of Kemono – Murakumo! Like previous updates, this update is also free to players that already own WILD HEARTS™. 

New weapons and armor can be forged from Murakumo materials. After you forge this new gear, enhance them through the all new Limit Break system! The Limit Break system isn’t locked to just these new pieces of gear, of course. Enhance any piece of gear you already own.

New Kemono Species - Murakumo

Strange winds swirl the sakura blossoms, which fail to fall even long after spring has passed. When rumors spread of this eerie sight, parents warn their children to keep their distance. Knowing that should you wander too close, the vulpine fiend appears and spirits you away. For it is no mere wind; it is the Murakumo.

This Kemono's plethora of petal-manipulating attacks are a real menace. It courses through the air on platforms made of sakura blossoms. Which, in turn, makes counterattacking tricky. When enraged, the vulpine beast unleashes a thunderous tornado that could easily leave you unconscious. Hunters would be wise to employ a Spinning Top Karakuri to fight against the beast.


New Karakuri - Spinning Top

Once unleashed, the Spinning Top closes in on prey to deliver a stubborn assault. Whenever it hits Kemono or other obstacles, it gains both speed and power. The Spinning Top can stagger Kemono given it has enough speed and power when it connects.


Limit Breaking Weapons, Armor

Hunters can use Core Orbs to further enhance weapons and armor. The number of times you can carry out such enhancements, and the effects they have, are different for each piece of equipment.

Core orbs can mainly be obtained by successfully hunting Volatile Kemono. The type of core orb dropped will depend on where you are hunting. 

Additional Fixes, Improvements

The team is still hard at work to pack in as many fixes, improvements and adjustments as possible. Be on the lookout for the full bulleted update notes on April 6th. Thank you for your continued support and passion for Wild Hearts. 

Deathhaze Gloombeak, New Talisman Skill, New Special Quests: Serial Hunts, New Chat Stamps & Emotes

The end of April is looking just as ferocious as the beginning! Make sure you’re prepared for another Deeply Volatile Kemono, Deathhaze Gloombeak, on April 20th.

Perhaps even more formidable, the next content update ushers in a new type of special quest – Serial Hunts. How many Kemono will you be able to hunt before being overwhelmed?
