Spirit of the North has a fox and it’s gorgeous

Well, this is quite beautiful. Spirit of the North bills itself as a “single-player, third-person adventure game”, but that’s a rather dry and dull way of describing something this beautiful. What it actually is is a story about a fox in the frozen north of Iceland. That fox has his fate become entwined with the guardian of the Northern Lights, which takes the form of a female spirit fox.

Across stunning landscapes you’ll need to solve puzzles and explore ruins to try and piece together the nature of the world that you’re exploring. It’s a mash-up of various Nordic folklore stories, so fingers crossed the developer, Infuse Studio, does it justice, because this has the potential to be something wonderful. ‘

The game will launch “first on PlayStation 4.” We assume that means Xbox One, PC and Switch ports down the track, but there’s no confirmation of any of that at this stage. There’s no release date either, so I wouldn’t expect this earlier than 2019.
