Previously announced for Nintendo Switch and PC, PM Studios have today confirmed that Hoa will be coming to Xbox and PlayStation consoles this summer.
The hotly anticipated and gorgeous Ghibli-esque adventure of Hoa is coming to Xbox One, Xbox and PlayStation come July 2021, complementing the previous announcement of Nintendo Switch and Steam versions. And honestly, this is a game you won’t want to miss.
Hoa features breathtaking hand-painted art, lovely music, and the most peaceful, utterly relaxing atmosphere as you attempt to navigate your way through a world, utilising a keen eye to solve exploration-based puzzles. You’ll also be given the chance to experience the magic of nature and imagination as you play as the main character, Hoa, on her journey through heartwarming environments back to where it all began for her.
Key features of Hoa include:
- Breathtaking hand-painted art – Step into a painting that lives – explore a vast world of meticulously crafted sceneries of stunning hand-painted art.
- Outstanding original soundtrack – Captivating story-telling and emotionally-charged, Hoa’s exceptional score, originally composed and live-recorded, brings its world to life with a touch of nostalgia.
- Lovely creatures – Keep an eye out for delightful magical creatures along the way. Most of them want to be friends, some might even tell you a little story or two. Cuteness guaranteed.
- Gentle yet compelling flow – Navigate with a keen eye and solve exploration-based puzzles. Relax to the organic rhythm of subtle storytelling while being intrigued by endless little wonders. Be a child – it’s easier and harder than it may seem.
It’s great to see an Xbox release for Hoa this summer, even if it’s the other side of the format fight that gets most of the goodies – the PlayStation 5 version will include additions that take advantage of the unique support of the DualSense Controller, whilst physical launch editions are now available for pre-order via various retailers in North America, with Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions planned.
Once we have a fully confirmed Xbox release date though, we’ll update things and keep you in the loop. For now, check out the details on the Steam page. Looks good, huh!
