    MidBoss and Kitsune Games announced that Kitsune Tails releases in 2023 for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S! Additionally, Kitsune Zero was announced as a prequel to Kitsune Tails. Players may purchase Kitsune Zero as paid DLC for Super Bernie World, the activism platformer. Read up on more details below:

    SAN FRANCISCO – March 31, 2021 – Kitsune Tails developer Kitsune Games, in collaboration with MidBoss™, today announces Kitsune Zero, a prequel to the platformer styled after beloved classics which features diverse relationships and is steeped in Japanese mythology. Kitsune Zero will release as paid DLC that fully transforms Super Bernie World, the electoral activism platformer downloaded by more than 300,000 voters at the ballot box.

    Additionally, Kitsune Games today reveal Kitsune Tails’ story of lesbian romance and giant jumping boots will leap to Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One in 2023 alongside the previously announced Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and 5, and Steam and versions for PC and Linux.

    Kitsune Zero pays tribute to the early days of influential 8-bit platformers, in comparison to Kitsune Tails which homages the classic platformers at the end of that generation of gaming consoles. Control the fox spirit Yumi, who answers the cries of the local onmyoji, a wizardly bureaucrat assigned to keep the peace. A dishonorable samurai clan has formed a magical pact with vengeful spirits to wage a war of conquest, and only Yumi can stop them.

    Run, jump, and stomp on ghostlike creatures from Japanese folklore lurking in the countryside and castles. Collect powerups that make Yumi grow in size, grant fireball abilities, and make her invincible for a short time. Gather the necessary ingredients to break the pact’s magic and take down the leader of the samurai clan to end the war.

    Traverse four worlds, each containing two vibrant outdoor levels and one daunting medieval castle. Overcome the challenges of each of the 12 levels and unlock new bonus levels not seen in Super Bernie World! Explore environments based on Japanese culture and mythology in every realm and a story setting the stage for the next generation of kitsune in Kitsune Tails.

    Now making its way to Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, Kitsune Tails follows Yuzu, a young and inexperienced half-fox half-human girl serving as Inari’s divine messenger, as voiced by Kira Buckland, the voice of NiEr: Automata’s 2B. Yuzu must rescue her love interest Akko from a dire fate while contending with a jealous Kiri, Yuzu’s childhood friend and member of the kitsune nobility. Run and jump across six worlds to save Akko, and power up with adorable elemental outfits including a rice hat to drill the earth, a snow fox to freeze your enemies, and a shark onesie to run across water.

    “Kitsune Zero and Kitsune Tails don’t just represent the past and present of the story we’re telling in this universe, but also the start and end points of platformer conventions established on 8-bit consoles,” said Emma ‘Eniko’ Maassen. “Each stands alone as its own special experience, but together they form a love letter from our team to the evolution of platformers during that era of gaming history.”

    Kitsune Zero will be available later in 2022 for $4.99 USD as paid downloadable content for Super Bernie World on Steam and Kitsune Tails will release in 2023 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5 and 4, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, and Windows PC and Linux via Steam and
