Sayonara Wild Hearts is an arcade game, characterized by an unusual style and atmosphere. Music and pop culture play an important role in this production. There are also references to mysticism, more specifically to tarot cards. Simogo independent studio (creator of Year Walk) is responsible for the creation of this title. The release was taken care of by Annapurna Interactive.
When a young woman's heart is broken, the universe falls out of balance. In her dreams a diamond butterfly appears, which leads her through the highway in the sky, where she finds herself: a masked cyclist, i.e. a fool straight from the deck of tarot cards.
Sayonara Wild Hearts offers intensive gameplay, which consists of moving around the locations (on foot, as well as using vehicles - e.g. motorcycles) and fighting. The pace of play is very fast - we are actually still in motion - and the combat system is completely arcade (we throw missiles and waving weapons in real time). The creators have prepared a wide range of varied boards, including deserts, forests and futuristic cities. During the game we also meet many strange characters, each of whom is tied to a tarot card.
Sayonara Wild Hearts can only be played alone.
Sayonara Wild Hearts has an unusual three-dimensional graphic design. Although from a technological point of view this production may not be very impressive (neither the character models nor the locations impress with the level of detail), the unique artistic style can surely be liked. Importantly, Nintendo Switch offers smooth gameplay in 60 frames of animation per second (regardless of whether we play mobile or on TV). The party is accompanied by an eclectic soundtrack, using various musical genres.
