Spirit Of The North
Spirit Of The North is heading to the next generation with the announcement of the Spirit Of The North: Enhanced Edition
The PS5 will have its full version of Spirit Of The North after the console launch, and we are not talking about it in the way of an update from the PS4 as many of the other games will be getting. This will not just be an update that will make the game run on the new system but an edition that will upgrade all of the visuals and the ability to see the game run in glorious 60 fps. Not something that we have ever seen for this one and it makes me excited to see the Spirit Of The North: Enhanced Edition drop on November 26th digitally and then a physical edition of the game on December 4th. Right around the time we should be looking for more to play on the system.
In addition to the new visuals for Spirit Of The North, there will also be two more skins that will be exclusive to the PS5. A Black Marble and Champagne skin for us to don while going through the game. If that is not enough, there is the Signature Edition for Spirit Of The North that will be the physical version that will come with some pins, a soundtrack, an art book, and a certificate of authenticity. For some reason that is needed even though there is not much else going on in the package that would require it. Maybe it is just what I am seeing here for now.
