According to IGN, the anniversary update will be Kena’s biggest DLC yet. There will be new abilities for Kena, charms to adjust stats and abilities in combat, an enhanced photo mode, and much more. An overview provided by Ember Lab is as follows:

  • “New Game+, which will allow players who’ve completed the game to restart Kena’s journey with all of their previously unlocked abilities, upgrades, outfits, Rot, etc and take on redesigned and more challenging combat encounters.”
  • “Charmstones that are individually equipable – these unique collectibles each provide different adjustments to Kena’s stats and abilities.”
  • “New game mode called the Spirit Guide Trials, challenging players’ skills with a variety of replayable challenges across three different categories; Obstacle Courses, Wave Defenses, and Boss Reflects.”
  • “Completing the Spirit Guide Trials unlock outfits for Kena, each one inspired by one of the characters she meets along her journey. Succeeding at bonus objectives within each trial can unlock color variations of each outfit, as well as some unique Charmstones.”
  • “An exclusive new outfit for Deluxe Edition owners.”
